""Thank you" I answered, unsure of the proper American response to her gracious enthusiasm. In the Arab world, gratitude is a language unto itself, "May Allah bless the hands that give me this gift"; "Beauty is in your eyes that find me pretty"; "May God extend your life"; "May Allah never deny your prayer"; "May the next meal you cook for us be in celebration of your son’s wedding…of your daughter’s graduation…your mother’s recovery"; and so on, an infinite string of prayerful appreciation. Coming from such a culture, I have always found a mere "thank you" an insufficient expression that makes my voice sound miserly and ungrateful.""

Abu Ali, the old Bookseller on Mutanabbi Street died today on April 10th, 2014. 

Anyone who sells books for living and offers the world a window to knowledge deserves a little acknowledgement, so please recite Al-fatiha for him.
