Ramadan Despair: Dilshad Ali on raising a child with autism

A mother discusses some of the inner conflict she feels regarding her son with autism during Ramadan:

I silently uttered the prayers that I’ve been saying for more than nine years: Ya Allah, please help Daanish manage his autism. Please give him sakoon (peace) and happiness. Please help him learn to communicate. Please help him grow up to be independent. Please give me strength to keep going.
