Reality of Death

The most intelligent statement ever made by this man

What's been on my mind for the past few days? Death--Death--and Death. SubhanAllah, although the thoughts running through my mind have been rather depressing, they were much needed. As humans we have a tendency to be very attached to this world, although it is guaranteed that this life will end at some point. It's unbelievable that we go about our days as though we are going to live forever. In particular over the past couple of weeks, death has been everywhere!--it's in Japan, Libya, Egypt..and the list goes on. We are constantly being exposed to death, but we don't stop for a second and think "my day could be next." Everyone needs to take some time and really think about their life and how they are living it because time is ticking. Visit a cemetery, read the Quran and hadith descriptions of death, go see a sick person, do what you need to do to remind yourself that death is imminent and inevitable. 

Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala said :
"Every soul shall have a taste of death; In the end to us shall ye be brough back."
[Surah Al-Ankabut 29:57]
