My Lord has bestowed Ghada, Assia, Nora and Ladan upon me. It is through them all that I am capable of appreciating the beauty of Life, Love, Mercy and kindness; for life cannot be appreciated with a heart which is devoid of mercy, happiness, or emotions. Indeed, they are the genuine extension of that warm rot to my mother, whose beautiful name Nora which I am so grateful, aftermy gratitude to my Lord: like a gentle shade, she constantly embraced and overwhelmed me with her affection. She imbued me with much of her life, spirit, blood and language. Had I not gone to the wonderful school of my mother, I would in no way have savoured the sweetness of hope, satisfaction, and beauty.
