Today i woke up and heard about two deaths in the same hour subhanAllah. Someone i ‘know’ but lives far away, and someone in my own city, that her name i don’t even know.
The other day, my mom was lecturing me about something, telling me that life is short, and we should plan on leaving this dunya on a good note. What does that really mean though? Our lives can be compared to the time between the adhan and iqama, when you are born, they say the adhan in your ear, and at your death, the iqama is recited.
SubhanAllah, how hard is it for us to always be on a good note. Everyday of our life, something can happen, that will irritate us and leave us doing things that we know won’t help us reach the jannah we dream of.
The two deaths happend in the same week, one yesterday, and one a couple days ago. One to an elderly man who has left a mark in many peoples of lives, may Allah have mercy on his soul, and the other sister who died at as a young adult, drowned. May Allah grant both of them jannatul firdous and give their families patience ameen thuma ameen!
What keeps my mind thinking now, how do we honestly live our lives. Like if you were to evaluate what we are doing on a scale from one to ten. How much of this dunya occupies the few hours of a day we have and how much do we sincerely dedicate it to ‘ibadah.
34. Verily, Allâh! With Him (Alone) is the knowledge of the Hour, He sends down the rain, and knows that which is in the wombs. No person knows what he will earn tomorrow, and no person knows in what land he will die. Verily, Allâh is AllKnower, AllAware (of things).
Inna lilah wa inna ilayhi rajioon. Try to live most of this life, so in the end, there will be no regrets inshaAllah, and one day, when people pray on you, they can only think of good things insha’Allah.
