The second hand of a clock ticks. But the millisecond hand of a stopwatch flows. It really made me realise that I am actually accelerating towards my inevitable death – with a lot more yet to be accomplished.
By the time. Verily! Man is in loss, except those who believe and do righteous good deeds, and recommend one another to the truth, and recommend one another to patience.
(Surah al-‘Asr, 1—3)
