"What are you thinking?" I asked.

“The rain," she began, "is like sin, and the windshield wipers are like Allah wiping our sins away."

After the chill bumps raced up my arms I was able to respond. “That's really good, " Then my curiosity broke in. How far would this little girl take this revelation? So I asked... “Do you notice how the rain keeps on coming? What does that tell you?"

I will always remember this whenever I turn my wipers on.
