A person has learned much if  has learned that death is surely coming;


Death keeps no calendar;


Death never takes a wise being (Muslimeen) by surprise; he/she is always ready to go;


Death takes no bribes;


Six feet of earth makes us all equal;


No one wants to die;


Yet death is the destination we all share;


No one has ever escaped it;


It is life’s change agent;


It clears out the old to make way for the new;


As a Muslimeen, We are not afraid of death;


Because death is but the beginning of a new life;


Each night, when we go to sleep, we die;


And the next morning, when we wake up, we are reborn;


To fear death, my friends, is only to think ourselves wise, without being wise;


For it is to think that we know what we do not know;


For anything that men can tell,


Death may be the greatest good that can happen to us;


But men fear it;


And that’s a shameful ignorance of thinking that we know what we do not know;


Death is the wish of some, the relief of many, and the end of all;


Death – the last sleep? No, it is the final awakening;





ﻛُﻞُّ ﻧَﻔْﺲٍ ﺫَﺍٓﺋِﻘَﺔُ ﭐﻟْﻤَﻮْﺕ


“Kulu nafsin zaaa’iqatul mawt;”


“Every soul shall have a taste of death”


|| Surah Imran 3:185 ||
