“Growing up, I was truly blessed to have my grandfather around, and he would often share his favorite ayah, “whoever saves the life of a person is as if he has saved the life of the whole of humankind [Quran 5:32]” Now, as a practicing healthcare professional, I realize the essence of that ayah and what deed could be more beautiful and fulfilling than helping those in need!”
