#VirtualRitual – Each weekday our friends from Penn, including Students, Staff, Faculty, Penn Religious Communities Council and other voices from campus will be sharing the ways their spiritual rituals have adapted while staying at home and as they connect to their spiritual communities remotely. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Today’s #VirtualRitual is by Patricia Anton, Chaplain for the Penn Muslim Student Association:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

IntentionaliTea ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Daily drinking of tea with honey, intentions and remembrance of God. ⠀⠀


Translation of Surah al-Fatiha, recited while stirring in honey: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

In the name of God, the Lord of Mercy, the Giver of Mercy

Praise belongs to God, Lord of the Worlds

Master of the Day of Judgement

It is You we worship; it is You we ask for help

Guide us to the straight path

the path of those You have blessed

those who incur no anger and who have not gone astray. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
