ARE YOU PERPARED FOR DEATH!

السلام عليكم

Hey Lovelies! I hope you are all doing well. إن شاء الله

I know I have not posted anything, in over two weeks (17 days to be exact), for that I apology. I would like to say I was busy, but then that would be lying, the truth is I’m just LAZY!

DISCLAIMER: This is a reminder for myself, before anyone else. What you about to read is a sensitive topic. I have no intension to upset or put anyone through any sort of distress. That being said lets dive right in.

DEATH , is something I have thought a lot about recently. Am I ready to die, have I done enough to please my lord, have I done enough in this life to pass the test for hereafter. Are questions I have lately asked myself? Life is slipping away day by day, without even realising, every second brings us closer to death. Yet we don’t seem to care.

Every soul shall taste death, and only on the Day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full. So he who is drawn away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise has attained. And what is the life of this world except the enjoyment of delusion.

The subject of death scares us all. We don’t like to talk about it, nor do we like discussing life in the grave or life after death. We all know we will one day die, but are not willing to discuss the details of what happens thereafter. We are afraid because of our own ignorance; because what is to come is unseen and unfamiliar and we are unprepared.

Death is a reality for each and every single one of us. There will come a time, when we will be laying on our death bed. There will come a time, when our families will be urging us, to utter the Shahadah as we die. There will come a time, when our soul will be pulled by the angel of death until it reaches our throat. There will come a time, when we will gargle the gargle of death. There will come a time, when the angels will say to us, who is going to save you now? You will taste death just like everyone else will taste death. We will be placed in the grave left in darkness were our body and our limbs will be eaten by worms. All we are going to have with us is our a’mal (Good Deeds) everything else will parish you will parish and I will parish the world will parish. Expect for the face of Allah (SWT). So ask your self are you ready. Are you ready for the angel of death Al Malik-ul-Maut to take your soul? Are you ready to be placed in your grave. Are you ready to be questioned? Do you have the answers ready to the questions; Who is your lord, what is your religion. And who is this man (Muhammed PBUH) and have you and what have you done to prepare for this last day.

The truth is you and I both will die one day we will be placed in our grave. We will see the angle of death. Some of them will tell us “you are on your death bed, don’t be afraid and don’t be sad and don’t worry but have the glad tidings of Jannah. And some of them will come and they will call  the most evil of names as they prepare your punishment.

Death is something that we overlook; we seem to think we are going to live forever but in reality that’s not the case. Death is the ONLY GUARANTEED thing in life. It is closer than you and I think it is. We all are going to die, yet that does not seem to concern us, we seem to be more interested and concerned about the latest phone, laptop, TVs, designer clothes, shoes and bags, but WHY! We seem to forget that we can’t take any of this stuff with us when we die. So why do we worry so much about it all. We seem to be so busy with our daily life that we forget our real purpose in life. Don’t get me wrong I am not saying any of that stuff is bad or wrong, I love all them stuff too, but  there should be balance, we should always remember what our purpose is in life and work towards it we need to strive to be better Muslims and better human beings.

Jazak’Allah for reading.

    You right we must always keep death in ftont of us as it reminds a person of the reality of this temporary life.Death is a gift for a believer as it is the bridge between the lover and the Beloved. That is if a person has lived his/her life preparing to meetAllah then as it comes in the meaning of hadith he who loves to meet Allah, Allah loves to meet him…’. When one acts upon Deen then slowly the desire of dunya starts reducing and desire for aakhirah starts increasing till a yearning comes to meet Allah Ta aala. Then there will be the pangs of death but no panic and nothing will be more beautiful than returning to our Creator in a state He us pleased with us.

    Strange how close our thoughts can be from a different perspective, a different faith. I’m just coming from the celebration of life of a former colleague and friend yesterday and I thought about this scripture:
    “Yet you do not know [the least thing] about what may happen tomorrow. What is the nature of your life? You are [really] but a wisp of vapor (a puff of smoke, a mist) that is visible for a little while and then disappears [into thin air].”
    ‭‭James‬ ‭4:14‬ ‭AMP‬‬

    I thought about how many have just vanished from my life, like my husband and many friends, and I wonder. I know what I believe and why, but it is a mystery to ponder.

    jazak’Allah khayr sister,
    This is such a powerful reminder. Indeed, we all shall taste death and this fact, more than scaring us, must urge us to ACT : to pray more, to learn more about our religion, to do good actions…
    May Allah protect you sister.

    Death is only a transition to another form, our consciousness and our spirits lives on, and at times takes on new material bodies. I think it is always best to live with ‘death upon our shoulders’ mentality so that we may make the most of each and every day! 🙂 I have no fear of death or the consequences thereafter, as I have lived a ‘ conscious life’ serving in love and I have no fear! Fear is just an illusion anyhow… we all have a dark side, yet we can choose love. There is only truly ‘love’ and ‘energy’ that binds us to each and everything. If we accepted this, we would not have the friction that exists between different religions which all aim for the same thing, the love of ourselves, others, every living thing, and ultimately the love of universal energy, God/ess ( in which ever name we may call him/her/it) which gives birth to existence and life! And, there are many paths which lead to ‘illumination’ and ‘enlightenment’, and all are equally brilliant and pertinent; whether that be directly, ‘Know thyself, and we shall know God’, or indirectly through religious teachings. I think our actions show who truly ‘loves’. And, to kill or hate our brothers or sisters in the name of religion is not love nor God’s will, it is humanity’s ‘lower selves’ fear directed will. We create our reality through our thoughts, desires and actions, and thus we ultimately reap what we sow, that is universal law! We should thus question our own motives, transform the things we don’t like about ourselves, and make our own judgements whilst we are still living – and not wait until our judgement after death- and thus make the choices that will benefit ourselves, others, and the ‘highest good ‘ for all in the seen and unseen worlds; for like the ‘butterfly effect’ our actions have consequences, not just here and now, but in the future and throughout the universe. Love, forgiveness, letting go, acceptance of change, and ‘unity consciousness’ is what elevates us, out of our egocentric self-serving animal selves, and into our most benevolent universal selves. WE are all in this together! blessings, B 🙂

    You handled a sensitive topic very well. It’s true – we all face death. The thought tends to be pushed to the back of our minds until, perhaps, a loved one, or we ourselves, are very ill or simply growing old. The questions you asked yourself are valid and thought provoking. Thank you for sharing them.
