Step 4: Ready for Death

“To Allah we belong, and to Him is our return”
(Quran 2:156)

The above verse beautifully encapsulated and gives meaning to our day-to-day existence in this world and thus simultaneously gives us direction, comfort, solace, anticipation, hope, courage and fear. Muslims basically utter the above verse during times of difficulty or when we are informed that someone has died. Some or maybe most don’t notice that the above verse is the reason why we are here in this world. It is our main goals. It is our ultimate function as humans. Our goals are to return to Allah. But in what way do we return?

Simple understanding can be done through followings:

Do you know where you are going?
No - Could be Heaven or could be Hell.

Do you know when you are going?
No - it can be at any time -usually sudden.

Do you know when you will be returning?
Never – one way ticket.

Do you know how long you will be gone?
Forever - millions, millions …years - Eternity.

Do you have the opportunity to say farewell to friends & family before you go?

Do you know what currency to take?
Good deeds - but have I saved enough.

Do you know what provisions to take?
Yes - Few meters of white cloth only.

Have you planned adequately for the journey?
I don’t know. I haven't thought about it much.

Understand Death – Do the politicians understand it? What are their visions? Do they act as if they are aware that someday they will die? You see, those who are not aware tend to do whatever they like – murder people, put people to jail without trial, beat people to death, corruption, practice injustice, accumulate the nation wealth to themselves and cronies etc.

So whatever the missions the visions the politicians are talking about, my question on them will be on this - Death.

There! Four steps that I have to take as a voter.
