Today we unpacked all the Dervish Dolls after our summer trip and my son wanted to play with them. He wanted to use the new little prayer carpets he received as a gift from a newlywed couple. He attended their wedding over the summer and he got to do whirling there.
He arranged the dolls to be a bride and groom with a wakeel and Imam.
He decided to use the dolls to stage the wedding with whirling dervish dancers.
Special thanks to Fatima and Ali and may Allah (s) bless them.
