Who would have thought that she would go before her parents? None of us.
Because we have all been deceived by the devil into believing we are all going to live long fruitful lives. One of the biggest misconceptions of life.
It also makes it harder to think about death because we live in America. Death is a taboo topic in the West. It’s something we think about only when it happens but never as a daily reminder as was instructed by the Beloved Messenger ﷺ.
It makes so much more sense on why the Prophet ﷺ told us to remember death constantly. It puts life into perspective!
So many of us are running around in the rat race of America, trying to save up for that house with the white picket fence, a BMW, and a nice garden in the front yard.
THAT IS NOT THE PURPOSE OF LIFE
The majority of the 8 billion people who inhabit this Earth will NEVER accomplish that goal. That’s because that is not why we were created. We were created to worship the Creator. To make a connection with Him. This goal can be achieved by everyone regardless of economic or social status.
The question we have to ask ourselves is: What have we truly prepared for the meeting with our Creator?
How many more deaths do we have to see before we change our lives?
May the Almighty grant her the highest level of Paradise and forgive all her shortcomings ????????
