Habibi

Begging and solicitation = serious problems in San Francisco; and it's expected given the ridiculously high level of poverty here. In my year and a half here, I've seen some great signs and heard some great requests.

However, the best thus far came yesterday. Saly, Shereen and I were walking up Powell Street on our way to Union Square and all of a sudden we heard:

"Habibi! Habibi, spare some change? I'll make da'wah for you! Come on habibi, just a little change?"

He kept going and we kept walking.
