The three historical murals in Vancouver’s Chinatown, created in 2010 by Shu Ren (Arthur) Cheng, located at 490 Columbia (corner of Pender). “1884″ depicts the Wah Chong family outside their laundry business. “1905″ shows a proprietor standing in a store front, and “1936″ depicts men seated in front of the Sam Kee Building. 

At the inauguration of the murals, one of the Wah Chong/Goon families’ descendant commented, ”I think it’s an excellent, excellent idea. It’s in memory of our ancestors and how they came out here and how hard it was for them to begin life here in Canada. There was so much discrimination. It was really hard for them to get by — but they survived, they survived.”

In 2015, the murals were defaced with graffiti.

The Story of how the Mother of Abu Huraira رضي الله عنه Became Muslim

What follows is a tremendous example of striving patiently and persistently for the guidance of others, particularly family members, trusting in Allah, making du'a.

Abu Huraira رضي الله عنه stated: “I used to invite my mother to Islam whilst she was a polytheist. One day I was inviting her (giving her da'wah to accept Islam) and she said something to me (in response) regarding the Messenger صلى الله عليه و سلم that I hated. So I came to the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه و سلم weeping (from sadness) and I said, "O Messenger of Allah! Indeed I used to invite my mother to Islam (regularly) and she would refuse, and I invited her (gave her da'wah) today and she said something regarding you that I hated, so make du'a to Allah that He guides the mother of Abu Huraira”.

So the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه و سلم said, “O Allah, guide the mother of Abu Huraira”.
So I exited happy due to the du'a of the Prophet of Allah صلى الله عليه و سلم (like the one given a glad-tidings). So when I arrived and approached the door, it was actually locked, and my mother heard my footsteps and said, “Remain in your place O Abu Huraira!”, and I heard the sound of water trickling. She made Ghusl and wore her garment and quickly covered her head then opened the door, then she said, “O Abu Huraira! I bear testification that there is no deity worthy of worship in truth except Allah and I bear witness that Mohammad is his servant and Messenger”.

So I returned to the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه و سلم and (this time) I was shedding tears from joy and I said, “O Messenger of Allah, glad tidings to you, Allah has answered your du'a and guided the mother of Abu Huraira!” So he صلى الله عليه و سلم praised Allah, and mentioned goodness…..“

[Saheeh Muslim: Chapter - The Virtues of Abu Huraira 2491]

Talking to Cole after Solas leaves Skyhold. The voice acting is very convincing. I’ve never taken the time to do this before, so naturally, I was a bit shocked. It also made me very sad. I wish there could have been a response to this. I feel my Lavellan would have been very worried about Solas making Cole forget something, as, at first, it seems invasive and unnecessary. Almost to a frightening degree. I feel it would have somehow colored her understanding of how serious Solas’s intentions were upon leaving, and how serious his pain. Because it seems more to me like Solas’s desperate act of making Cole “forget” is not an act of defense. He is not protecting himself. It is so that Cole does not have to bear the burden of feeling his pain as he embarks on his mission alone. That is how big his pain is. So though it did freak me out a little at first, I feel like this is, in itself, an act of compassion. It also indicates how hard this moment is for Solas, ie: leaving Skyhold.

Just another reminder for me that, despite his pride and cowardice with Lavellan, Solas is a deeply thoughtful, compassionate soul. Whatever his path entails, I maintain he can be reckoned with.


I can’t think of the proper words to describe this.
