Shabana wrote a wonderful, brilliant piece about "The Dars Lady" phenomenon among older Pakistani women (does it happen in other communities too?).
Salaam ‘Alaikum When I read her piece, it reminded me of the “dars ladies” I’ve met in Jordan and in the Arab-American communities here. I was “outed” as a “Sufi” at a dars in Jordan by one of those older auntie dars ladies. The others had to be warned, you see.
