When a child is born, it is impossible to predict
- What kind of person he would turn into?
- How successful he would be in this world?
- Where would he live?
- What would he do for his living?
- How many years he would live?
But there is one thing that is certain - He will die!
That very moment or maybe after 100+ years. But he will surely die.
Yes, death is the ultimate truth of life. And, man makes whatever is in between the two so complicated! He lives as if he is never going to leave this world!
When one is reminded of death due to something he becomes death-ready-for-the-moment. But again the quality of life slowly turns worldly.
This is life. This is the world. And we are unknowingly walking empty handed towards our ultimate destination!
If only one remembers often what he knows - DEATH - he would live a life of purpose!
A reader emailed me after reading this poem last week
His email was full of praises for what I wrote and how touched he is to read it every time. I was glad at the way he put it across. But when I re-read it entirely today it made me realise how this small life has made me to reassemble things.
Nobody would ever understand what I go through when I read this poem of mine. It sums up things for me. It is an apt example for me to see how I succeeded in reliving my life from the scratch. And, I never knew that when I looked back at this one simple poem, I could see my life beautifying, being ruined and then being fixed by Allaah bit by bit, piece by piece, moment by moment.
May Allaah help me to find peace and spread peace through righteous deeds.
May Allaah guide me to become a good Muslim mother and raise a loyal servant of The Almighty who remains “just” to His Creations and firm in His Obedience.
May Allaah bless me with patience and ease to deal with the hardships along this short way.
May Allaah help me to forgive those who have wronged me and my loved ones in any possible way and make make it a source of His Forgiveness for me on The Day.
May Allaah help me to take along His Pleasure to my final destination.
