Barakah In Old Age

  • Today, we refer to an elderly person as being in their ‘golden years’. This phrase aptly describes their knowledge and vast life experiences.

     

     

     

  • These golden years are not meant to be filled with depression, sadness and solitude. It is a meaningful stage of life that should be filled with tranquillity and joy. In order to achieve this, allow me to share three points that one should bear in mind.

     

     

  • Having years of experience in raising a family, senior members of society play a vital role in advising, teaching and guiding their families and communities.
