What Would Advanced Science Say About How A Tree Talked To Prophet Mohammad?

As a Muslim, I was taught to respect the plants. My elders told me to take care of plants because plants can sense us; and, they demonstrated this care through their actions as well. Thus, I grew closer to plants. I saved a plant from being destroyed once. It belonged to a colleague of mine. She gave the plant to me because I asked her not to get rid of it; it was getting old and she wanted to throw it away. I named it “Rudy”; and, I grew it and kept it safe in my room. I remember that when I looked at this plant for the very first time, I just felt pulled towards it somehow. And, I still recall that I experienced pain when I eventually threw it because it got too old and withered. Furthermore, I usually appreciate them a lot as I walk or stare out of a window. I feel very scared when plants get destroyed due to bad weather. Not to forget that I recieve lots of dreams about them.

In one lucid dream, I connected with a tree to find something important. The tree from the dream world literally made me stay connected with an online acquaintance who belonged to the awake dimension, the real life.

In one dream that I had regarding an online acquaintance whom I met some years ago, I utilized trees to figure out our connection. During the dream, I felt that this person was nearby. I decided not to talk and run away. The minute I thought this, the trees in the area started moving aggressively and some of the trees’ branches grabbed me, took me backwards, and threw me down. I felt this indicated that he would feel very injured if I just left without proper communication. The only reason why the trees reacted during my sleep is that he is actually very attached to the plants and nature—he has never indicated anything about how he would feel if I were to just leave. This dream is the reason why I am still connected to this person online; interestingly, he is also choosing to maintain contact with me. Read “Which Disney Princess Am I Like?”

So I used to think that I was just being creative in this particular dream, connecting abstract ideas to reach a conclusion. Just today, I came across an article “Plants Feel Pain and Might Even See“, which is written by Peter Wohlleben. This article discusses how plants can see and experience pain. The question that is now raised is how smart they really are? For instance, trees from my dreams can communicate thoughts to me. There is this story about how a tree cried when Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) decided not to give a sermon while standing underneath it. How the date palm tree was able to demonstrate to everyone that it could experience emotional pain shows that trees can feel and have thoughts too. Watch “Tree That Loved The Prophet ᴴᴰ | Shaykh Zahir Mahmood”. Oh, the story includes a reference to some slave. Having slave(s) was normal back then; as Islam spread, it abolished slavery.

So next time, someone makes fun of Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) or Islam, bring up this story and discuss how Science is just finding out that trees are actually intelligent creatures but this knowledge was already available in Islam due to Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him). Islam is not an outdated religion; it is an advanced religion. There is no way that back then they would have known that plants can experience pain because the Science to explain this properly wasn’t there; they must have seen this happening in real life because Prophets are granted miracles that allow a deeper penetration of different dimensions and truths.

Is There Going To Be A War At Sea?

I had a couple of bizarre dreams today. I wonder if they were all connected somehow because they happened very close to each other.

When I became aware in one dream, I was flying with the intention of meeting a friend of mine. I was elevated to somewhere very high in the sky. I could see the blue sky and white clouds. Also, I could distinctly view the outlines of the clouds. They floated in the sky; were small in size; and appeared separated from each other. I flew very fast and started feeling a bit anxious as my psychic eye witnessed only the sky and the clouds for some while. I felt that I didn’t want this any further so I told myself to fly low. Suddenly, my altitude started decreasing on its own. Now, I could see the land and greenery. I had arrived over the rectangular field of some sort. As soon as I saw this place, I willed myself to get to that area. I needed to make this trip in the sky short! So I got to this field and was puzzled to see that lots of people were playing either Football or Cricket there. I told a dream character that I wanted to see a particular person. The dream character spoke to me and pointed to someone. All of a sudden, a guy came running towards me from the back. He had a haircut that reminded me of a square; and, he looked shorter than the person I was looking for. I started walking out of the field with him behind me when I realized that this person wasn’t the person I was looking for.

Soon, this dream was disrupted. Now I was somewhere on top of a very large sea. I saw an extremely beautiful and expensive boat. It was slim and very long. There was a woman there; and, I am sure there was a guy there too. I was suspended on top of this boat when the woman spotted me and started talking to me. She felt worried about something although I couldn’t figure out why. I didn’t want to be distracted because I was flying. When I eventually woke up, I realized that something about this scene bugged me. The boat seemed unstable to me; and, the water around it seemed rash. I realized that it felt odd that the woman could see me and was looking up at the sky.

After this dream snippet, I had another bizarre sight. I am documenting this one due to Humanitarian reasons. Again, I was flying over the sea when I ended up seeing some warships. I flew downwards and interacted with dream characters. A dream character told me that he was an African Muslim and that the African Muslims were up against the British; he also said that his ship was headed towards Iran. This African was very spirited about all this!

This experience was pretty unusual. I know that my vision had enhanced significantly while I was dreaming. For instance, when I was flying towards the sky, I could see an extremely large space around me and I didn’t had to move my neck or eyes to view things. Also when I would go up or down, there was a sense of movement but there was also a sense of teleportation almost like I was being fast-forwarded. Fast Forward and all of a sudden I was really high up in the sky; fast forward and all of a sudden I was near the field. In essence, I was traveling through time. The dream about war at sea occurred while I was in this accelerated state. Since I am a creative writer, I am still going to add the possibility that this is just a creative rant my mind created for me; however, there is still the possibility that this is something real, literally or symbolically. I was unable to investigate more than that because I was a bit stressed and also because I had already received other dreams.

Again, I am sharing this here for Humanitarian reasons; I am worried because Colonialism is on the rise while a lot of Muslim countries don’t have great political leaders. I definitely want to create World Peace! However, I am puzzled at what’s going on in this world; and it is extremely horrific to realize that all these fights are taking place when mankind has advanced so much. Lastly, it helps to note that I sometimes receive historic and precognitive dreams. I have created a list of such dreams in blog post “Progenitor Dream Characters and “Big Dreams”: Lessons Derived From Evolution Of Carl Jung’s Dream Character Elijah And His “Big Dreams”.

Scary Dreams Can Symbolize Multiple Things Including Death

I just received horrific news today. One of my favorite writers Professor Eric Anthamatten has passed away. He is mentioned in the blog post “Dance of Heroes”.

I came across Professor Eric Anthamatten through Nomadic Press. I loved one of his essays a lot; thus, I connected with him online. I loved interacting with him; and, I found him to be extremely inspiring. I am a Telepathic Lucid Dreamer. I have never met him in person; but, I did connect with him online and through my abilities. Truth is that there have been times when I have heard Eric’s voice in my head and received dreams about him.

In one dream, he was just doing some of his chores in my home; I believe I saw him at my place because I felt close to him. In another dream, he was teaching; I was sitting in the classroom as a student. I asked him a question; and, he gave me an answer; he also joked while he was teaching. In a different dream that I had around the time when the COVID-19 lockout started, I saw Eric in his office. Everything around him was dark; and he was closing his computer. There was a feeling that something is going on because everything around him was dark. Then there was another dream, a rather disturbing yet a deeper dream; I received this dream after meditating on thoughts about Eric and Carl Jung. In this particular dream, I received visions of death. Read the dream here “Lucid Dream: The Three Skeletons and The Airport“.

In this dream, I was on a tour with my family members. I think I saw my sister-in-law and my niece as well; we were taking turns to manage the baby. We were in a hurry because our flight was supposed to depart soon; and, we were lost inside a labyrinth of some sort. First, we were inside a large antique house that was lit with darkness and bluish light that had light shades of golden light. The darkness literally felt like some sort of light that actually helped people see. One of my cousins who still lives inside Pakistan visited me during this dream. He was standing near one of the staircase of this establishment. I think my cousin hinted that the staircase that would take you downstairs might end up in places where it is easy to get lost given that you don’t know your way around. My cousin checked us out and then he pointed to the airport as he commented, “Go to the ceiling (higher area). The airport is there”. So we ran towards the ceiling (higher area).

The ceiling (higher area) was a very large place and had several interesting places including an educational institute and a paan shop. Everything up there seems old and broken. There were some people including children walking and chatting there. The two women who were keeping me company deserted me and ran towards the paan shop. The paan shop was rather small; it was made from bricks; and, a fabric was used as the tent for the window. I got away from there because I had a feeling that we were in the wrong place and that we were bewitched to go there. So when I tried to get away from the ceiling (higher area), I saw a grey door on the side. Perhaps, this door was in between the lower area and the ceiling (higher area); or maybe, I took some stairs to get to this door. I distinctly remember that I looked over my shoulder while I was standing near the door; and, I could still see my family members on the ceiling (higher area). The greyish-white door was slightly ajar although it seemed lock. Some hidden force gently forced me to stop near this door and open it. I hesitated for a bit; and, then I pushed to open this old and somewhat broken door.

Inside, a startling sight welcomed me. Inside everything was grey: skeletons were grey; walls were grey; and, the grave was grey. Two human skeletons were sitting near a grave that appeared like a box or a sealed hole. The beings that were sitting there almost frozen in space and time actually noticed me when I started screaming, “Where is the airport?” To answer my inquiry, the skeletons started moving, which was shocking and exciting to watch. The male skeleton indicated something to the woman and me. The female skeleton held a knife; asked the male skeleton to help her; sat on the box/hole; noticed that the guy skeleton was not going to do anything; and, then attempted to open the box/hole with her knife. The knife made some grating screeches and finally the box/hole opened. When she opened it, a male skeleton that was stored inside became alive and just stepped out. As soon as he got out of the place where he was confined, he slit his throat with the knife and changed into some kind of soil-like substance. I think he somehow conveyed to me that he was the old boyfriend of the female skeleton. The opening to the airport was at the bottom of this pit. The female skeleton pointed out and said, “The airport is in there”. Source: “Lucid Dream: The Three Skeletons and The Airport“.

My first interpretation of this dream was that this was about COVID-19. I analyzed it this way because I was receiving symbols of death while meditating on someone whose online resume states NY in the header; later, I found out that New York was the region with the highest death toll due to COVID-19. I wrote about this here “Prediction Within A Prediction: Use Of Mind’s Peripheral Vision”.

Now, I can see an embedded sequence. Today, I found out that Eric passed away on May 22, 2021 in Mexico while traveling. Read his obituary at James Cowder Funeral Homes’ website. Note that I had this dream in May 2019; see date by visiting the blog post “Lucid Dream: The Three Skeletons and The Airport“. And, Eric passed away in May around 2 years afterwards. In this dream, I was looking for the airport; and I was given directions to get to the higher area. The dream characters got near a shop that was in the higher region; but, I started feeling that I was going in the wrong direction. So I moved around and eventually opened a door that lead to a grave. The female skeleton said that the airport is inside the grave. There was a dead body of a male inside this grave. Eric passed away while he was traveling and thus the airport is part of all this.

I don’t know what to say. First of all, I am baffled by how this one dream has multiple meanings attached; it is hard to read into it because I sometimes think and dream like a writer and not just someone who can see the future. Secondly and more importantly, I am very much shocked that I have lost Eric. I was pretty much attached to his writings and him because I totally admired his way of thinking—this attachment is the reason why I was able to receive multiple dreams about him. I have always been in love in Philosophy; and, Eric was one of the best Philosophers I had ever studied. I will miss him a lot. May God bless his sweet and gentle soul!

I wish to end this post with a truth that I have learned through Islam: Death is from God and nothing can stop it. I can see this very clearly now. I was looking at this dream all along; I was in touch with Eric all along; yet, I couldn’t have figured out that something wrong was going to happen to him because of this entire COVID-19 pandemic related interpretation. This is why in Islam, God is referred to as the Preserver or Al-Hafiz.

Gazing Inside Mother’s Womb Through Lucid Dreams

It is possible to look inside someone’s womb by using lucid dreams. When my younger sister was pregnant and the delivery was near, I dreamt of twin women and twin babies. Read “My Twin Nieces Are Growing Up“; “Another Lucid Dream Came True: Birth Of Twin Girls“; and “Lucid Dream About Twins“. My sister never told me the gender of the babies. And, after giving birth, she told me that the babies were forming a T just before the delivery; the T’s vertical line was to one side. One baby was resting horizontally and the second baby was resting vertically while holding the other baby up on her head or legs. She also said that they moved around a lot inside the womb.

T, with the vertical line to the side.

I was surprised when I heard this. Then I reviewed the image I had drawn after dreaming about the twin girls. I was shocked to see that the babies I had drawn were forming an inverted T.

Source: Lucid Dreams About Twins
I have zoomed into the image I had drawn of my dream. You can see that the babies in this image are forming an inverted T.

Thus, lucid dreams let the dreamer view inside hidden or not-so-obvious parts of this universe including a mother’s womb.

A Vision About The Children

Today, I had a lucid (clear) dream about a child. Read my blog to learn that I receive visions that later come true or that have a symbolic significance.

This particular dream was set in extremely dark night. A child was roaming near a bus station. A man who had a very gruffy attitude and who was hiding a certain amount of viciousness approached this child. The man seemed like a homeless, a drug addict, or a criminal. He spoke to the child and lead him to the bus. The child started feeling scared because he didn’t knew this man. However, he got in the bus with this man. Surprisingly, once inside the bus, the man just walked away to his seat and disappeared from the scene. The kid started roaming in the bus as people stayed busy doing all the ordinary things. The child was extremely poor and very lonely.

I am finding this dream very peculiar simply because I think that there is an actual message attached to it. So I researched the net and found out that child poverty is increasing due to COVID-19. Below are some helpful articles:

Child poverty to rise above pre-COVID levels for at least five years in high-income countries including Canada – UNICEF

Pandemic is increasing child poverty

Why is Child Poverty Increasing Among Children?

Covid-19 Has Exacerbated Child Poverty, Forcing A Long Overdue Policy Focus

Child poverty in Canada could rise for at least five years: UNICEF

Child poverty gradually rising

150 million additional children plunged into poverty due to COVID-19, UNICEF, Save the Children say

Poverty rate rising among America’s youngest children, particularly infants of color

And so on and so forth.

Prophet Moses (peace be upon him) asked the Pharaoh to free his people including the slaves. He warned that otherwise plagues will arrive. Now Science shows us how this can happen; read blog post “Link Between Plagues and Freedom” and see article “Importance of freedom in humanities developing“. Thus, there is a strong need to create policies and opportunities that will grant freedom to everyone. Furthermore, the global movement to protect the non-White population of this planet must increase its pace. There are lots of wrong things going on with the non-White population so that the world never gets to see their talent properly. For instance, I was trying to get into higher education and study “Cellular and Molecular Biology”. Yes! I was planning to study bacteria and viruses in the labs. I left because I felt extremely insulted by how women were being marginalized at my university and how a couple of male instructors insulted me. Read my story here “Dented Thinking of A Genius“; and, you will learn that I received a message about arrival of a plague during a dream that I had in 2015. You will notice that in this dream, I was taken to a place where people were planning to harm the Muslims. This links into the aftermath of Trump’s election. Therefore, conflicts are also harming the humans and advancement of Sciences.

Overall, to reverse what is going on in this world, we must respect the freedom of people; protect the women; give more access and protection to non-White people; and, reduce conflicts.

Did I See Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) In My Dream?

I once meditated on my thought that I wanted to see Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) in my dream. I also wanted to not look at his face because I wished to express deep respect. Pretty soon, I had a lucid dream about him. During this dream, I knew I was communicating with Prophet Mohammad (pbuh); but, I never really talked about it because i) I couldn’t see his face and features and ii) I didn’t knew how to explain what I saw.

In this dream, I saw an older man who walked a bit; stopped near the right side of my bed; bent and looked at me; gently tapped my arm; and, asked me to get up and pray. He felt very much like a father to me because he seemed very mature and caring. I paid attention to what he said although I didn’t address him because I was unsure about how to talk to someone so AWESOME.

Some years passed. I kept this dream to myself. Every now and then, I would think about what exactly happened during this dream. Then God gave me an answer. Recently, I came across a video that discussed how a Christian man saw Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) and ended up becoming a Muslim. Check out Muslim Convert Stories’ YouTube video “Christian man sees Prophet Muhammad in a Dream and Converts to Islam!“. Here Antony (new name Abdullah) describes that Prophet was standing still; staring down at him; standing above him; and, walking and stopping to see him. Then it hit me that that particular dream character who I thought was Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) was actually Prophet Mohammad (pbuh).

I am still very much stunned! What’s most peculiar about this man was that he seemed very ordinary. I wonder if I will be able to see him again!

Expressing Admiration and Respect Through Lucid Dreams

I had a very interesting dream in the morning today; this was about one of my inspirations who is mentioned in the blog post “Dance of Heroes” and “Balancing Feminine and Masculine Energies During Lucid Dreams“.

In this particular lucid dream, I was in a house where several of my relatives had gathered. I was with a man, a well-known Human Rights Activist. He was resting right next to me. I held his foot throughout this dream to show my respect for him. The entire place was drenched in some sort of mesmerizing, serene, and light background music; the dark room was illuminated by natural light that danced in through the open windows. The hypnotic music reminded me of this individual’s body’s music—I can hear different types of music including the music that comes from people’s bodies. For several instants, he held me in his deep gaze as he conveyed some profound message; during these sacred moments, I held one of his feet and placed my head near it. I dozed off pretty soon because I felt very rested. When I woke up inside this dream, I was surprised to find out that I was holding my sister’s foot.

I believe that this dream is reminding me of my respect and admiration for this Human Rights Activist. Thus, presence of my lovely sister in the same place indicated how the only person whose thoughts can cause such reverence is my younger sister.

Balancing Feminine and Masculine Energies During Lucid Dreams

I have noticed that some of my most detailed dreams include men or Hypnagogic Hallucinations involving their energies and thoughts relating to them; some of these men are inspirations who are mentioned in blog post “Dance of Heroes“. I believe this is because balancing the feminine and masculine energies enhances the lucid dreaming state. Have you watched the movie, “Shadow”? In this movie, Commander Yu’s wife teaches her husband’s Shadow how to use the Umbrella of Pei so that the Shadow may fight to reclaim the Jingzhou City. Check out this clip here; it is offered by MovieClips.

Here are some of the dreams where I used male energies. I did this by thinking about them just before falling asleep; the Hypnagogic Hallucinations thus induced caused these dreams.

This dream links into the closure of India’s Amnesty International. I have hidden the name of the Human Rights activist I was dreaming about to protect him from any sort of abuse; I mean people can develop ideas if they see something that offers some clues. Read “Another Dream Symbol Came True: Amnesty International and India

This dream is about American Human Rights Lawyer and Activist Qasim Rashid who was the Dem Nominee for this previous election. The dream carries a critical symbol: role of men in preventing abuse of women. Read ‘Please Support VA Senate District 28 Dem Nominee “Qasim Rashid”

This dream is about Australian Journalist and Human Rights Activist CJ Werleman. This dreams reads into the painful images associated with the abuse of Muslims; it also reads into stereotypes associated with male leaders. Read “My Psychic Images of CJ Werleman“.

This dream is about American Professor and Poet JK Fowler. It shows how important masculine energies are in balancing the feminine energies; it also shows my attachment to poetry and poets. Read “Another Lucid Encounter With My Favourite Poet J.K. Fowler“.

This dream occurred after I thought about American Professor Eric Anthamatten and legendary Psychologist and Psychiatrist Carl Jung. It shows how mass graves were created in New York due to COVID-19 pandemic. Read “Prediction Within A Prediction: Use Of Mind’s Peripheral Vision“.

This dream is about the founder of The Mantle, Shaun Randol. It offers a prediction about what was going to happen after the COVID-19 pandemic. Read “Dream That Made Me Study Sales Was A Grand-Scale Prediction“.

This dream is about American Professor and Activist Craig Considine; through this dream, I met him around a year before I actually connected with him at The Parliament of World Religions. Read “Proof That I Can Move Forward In Time By One Year“.

This dream included the American actor David Duchovny. I love X-Files; so this dream occurred around the  25th Anniversary of “The X Files. Read “I Got Attached To Mulder (David) & Scully (Gillian)“.

I had this dream about Pope Francis around a year before he visited Iraq. This relates to me because I advocated against the Iraq war. Read “Regarding Pope Francis’s Visit to Iraq“.

And, there are a couple more of such energies…

Dance Choreography Through Lucid Dreams

I love dancing! I used to dance more when I was younger. I was pretty crazy about dances back then, dancing at parties, weddings, and privately. But, I now I dance less because I am usually busy; and, I only dance alone now. Over time, I have noticed that even my dream characters dance very gracefully. I have learned that it is very easy for my dream characters to dance together. All this feels like choreographing a dance! In addition, my dream characters play musical instruments during my dreams. Oh! I can even throw dance parties with their help!

In one of my lucid dreams, I saw actor Prabhu Deva—the guy from the famous song “Muqabla“—dancing with a group of people. They were all standing in a higher place, like steps or a stage. There were long rows of people on both of Prabhu’s side. As they danced rather fast, their bodies moved in harmony almost like they were hypnotized. The entire area was lit with lights. I wonder if I saw a real event though!

Regarding Pope Francis’s Visit to Iraq

I went through a lot because of the Iraq War that started in 2003. I signed lots of petitions against this war; I read several articles; and, I shared my opinion about how this war is wrong. On top of all this, I started receiving terrible nightmares about the conflict zone; read a little bit about one of such dreams here “Lucid Dreams suggest that women should be leaders in peacebuilding“.

In one dream, I was inside Iraq. There was a large wall behind which injured people were hiding. A spirit took me to the other side of the wall. A man complained to me about the condition of those who were harmed. I looked at everyone who was bleeding and dying. After feeling their misery and looking at their dire condition, I flew away and promised that I will do something. Source: “Lucid Dreams suggest that women should be leaders in peacebuilding“.

Today, I read the news about how Pope Francis is visiting Iraq from Mar 5 till Mar 8. I was super-thrilled about this. My birthday is on Mar 6; so I thought this visit is a gift from God.

Here is proof that my birthday is on Mar 06; parts of this ID card were edited to ensure confidential information may remain hidden.

Another funny thing that happened to me last year is that in the morning of Jan 21, 2020, I received a dream about Pope Francis. Read “I Met Pope Francis In My Dream“. I published this after midnight so the publication date is Jan 22, 2020.

Revision history shows that this post was started on Jan 21; thus, the phrase, “I had an interesting dream in the morning” is referring to Jan 21, 2020.
I don’t know how God made me do this; but, I finally published this post on Jan 22, 2020 after midnight.

This dream was a surprise to me because I have never met Pope Francis in my life. Today, after receiving news about Pope’s visit to Iraq, I thought about how I had a dream on Jan 21, 2020 and this visit is taking place in Mar 2021. I have shared on this blog how I receive precognitive dreams. This precognitive dream is telling me about Pope’s upcoming visit to Iraq. It is also very interesting to note that on Jan 22, 2020, Pope gave a speech about importance of hospitality and a prayer for Christian unity. Here is a description from my dream:

I was at some event where Pope Francis was giving a speech in a building that had corridors and rooms with furniture and equipment. I was standing at the door; and, I addressed him by his name. He talked to me very briefly. Source: I Met Pope Francis In My Dream

The room that I saw in this dream was much smaller than the one that shows in the YouTube video here; however, it is possible that this room was where he planned his speech or where he was before or after the event.

Furthermore, it is usual for me to receive dreams that have two meanings attached. One of such dreams is about the mass graves that were created in New York to manage the impact of COVID-19 pandemic. Read “Prediction Within A Prediction: Use Of Mind’s Peripheral Vision“. So this dream about Pope Francis emphasizes three things:

  1. Hospitality is a strong theme among the Muslims as well since I am a Muslim and I am dreaming about Pope Francis around the time when he delivered a speech about hospitality.
  2. Muslims and Christians share a very deep bond, which is something I have felt since I was a kid.
  3. Around a year after this dream, Pope decided to visit Iraq. I had to know this given my past activities regarding Iraq so God designed this event to take place in Mar 2021. The event is from Mar 5 till Mar 8; and, my birthday is Mar 6. According to article “Pope Francis set to make first papal visit to Iraq amid possible turmoil”, inter-religious activities between Muslims and Christians are going to take place on Mar 6. I believe things are happening this way because God wants me to pay some attention to Iraq, Christians, and this event; and then by highlighting this incidence God wants people to learn to pay attention to Iraqis because they need our help right now.

So here are my thoughts about Pope Francis’s visit to Iraq. I believe it is nice of him to think of Iraqis during such tough times; perhaps, his visit would compel richer countries to somehow ensure that all Iraqis end up getting vaccinated. Mostly richer countries have acquired vaccines; Iraq is not on the list shown in the article “With First Dibs on Vaccines, Rich Countries Have ‘Cleared the Shelves“. Secondly, Iraq received its first set of COVID-19 vaccines as donations from China; read “Does Iraq Have A Strategy For Acquiring COVID-19 Vaccines?” In addition, Pope’s visit would promote solidarity and communication between Muslims and Christians, which is much needed right now. However, it is possible that this event will spread COVID-19 in Iraq; read “Pope’s Planned Visit to Iraq, Amid Pandemic, Raises Questions of Timing“. Reality is that I am worried about why Pope has decided to visit during such harsh times; I think he could have just participated in a virtual event like most of us are doing right now. However, I am hoping and praying that everyone stays safe during all this and that they effectively perform social distancing as well as take other safety precautions.
