This is the photo of Isaac Ashakenazi, Sarah Cohen and me from the house of Sarah Cohen. Family of Mr. Isaac is a German immigrant and Sarah Cohen is from Bagdad and I myself Thoufeek Zakriya an Indian Muslim.
Today (23rd June 2009) I went to Sarah Auntie’s house and showed my torah Scroll as I promised to her and she was pretty amazed to see it and she called her neighbour Mr. Isaac Ashkenazi who came for an evening walk and a visit to Sarah Cohen’s house and He saw my handmade Torah Scroll and gave a good comment and he read it fully and here is the photo of him checking the Sefer Torah
He told that it was good and he asked me to write his name and I wrote it fore him in Hebrew and also he have ordered me one copy of Birchat habayit for him to present it to one of his friend.
And it is really a rare chance to me to click a photo with him because he always avoids photography for his privacy from all the medias but he happily gave me the chance. Actually it was all happened because of Mr.Thaha Ibrahim who is the care taker of Sarah Cohen. Yaa a Muslim who looks after an aged Jew without any profit as his own mother. Mr.Thaha told “this is what my religion Islam taught me, to love and maintain peace between all and spread it like an ocean”.
For me this is a great thing and a great example of communal harmony.
May Allah bless us all with Peace.
