A veces, la tristeza es tan profunda que incluso nuestra mortalidad nos parece un alivio.

Lo suficientemente profunda como para que nuestra mayor debilidad se nos presente como nuestro mayor don. Como si el espíritu se sintiera seguro de que esos terribles dolores anímicos solo nos acompañaran hasta el final, y no por toda la eternidad.

Y es desde esa perspectiva, exactamente, desde la cual vivir con penuria no tiene el mas mínimo sentido.

Night prayers (tarawih) are special prayers said during the month of Ramadan. After breaking the fast, Muslims gather together and pray the ‘isha (night prayer), then hold long prayers (composed of twenty or eight rakʿas). The Imam recites one part of the Qur’an every night and thus completes all the thirty parts during the Ramadan night prayers.

Ramadan is the ninth month of the lunar calendar, and Muslims around the world mark it by fasting. Read more about the Islamic calendar on Oxford Reference.
