THERE are many transitions in life. Some happen subtly and leave us wondering, “Where did the time go?” The month of Ramadan is a prime example.
You may find yourself looking at the calendar in amazement when there are just a few days left. You may question, “Did I do enough during the blessed month? Did I work my hardest? Will I live to see the blessings and opportunities of the next Ramadan? Have I truly earned Allah’s mercy or have I carelessly let the month slip by virtually unnoticed?”
But some transitions are far from subtle. Birth and death are two such grand events. In the context of birth, the evolution from pregnant woman to mother happens in a dramatic event that can’t go unnoticed.
