“When we are born adhaan is given but no salat. When we pass away salat is prayed but no adhaan. The adhaan given at the time of our birth is the adhaan for the salat prayed at the time of our death. That’s how short life is, the time between adhaan and salat. So hate none, love all, pray sincerely, forgive genuinely and pray your salats’ before the salat is prayed for you.”
This is one of those nuggets of wisdom I’ve heard but don’t know the origin to. I find it simple, yet resonant. And if an entire lifetime is so brief and transient, then a single Ramadan is all the more so.
