Death is one of the few indisputable facts of life. Regardless
of faith, race, status or age, we will all die. While the certainty of death
is universally accepted, the question of what happens afterwards has
been debated throughout history. Despite its inevitability, we get so
absorbed in living that we forget about death. Our daily routines, the
comfort of our homes and our relationships keep us so busy that we have
little time left to ponder over the fleeting nature of this world. Then,
suddenly, we are forced to face the reality of our existence when a loved
one is afflicted with a debilitating disease or we experience a shocking
loss. Helpless, we are jolted by the frailty of life, leading us to question
our priorities and reevaluate our lifestyles.
According to Islam, when confronted with a calamity, one
should say “To God we belong and to Him we shall return”
-Quran 2:156.
This invocation is also recited when someone dies. Reminding us of our
origin and our ultimate destiny, it puts the purpose of our lives in
perspective.
‫ا‬َ‫م‬ َ‫و‬َ‫ان‬َ‫ك‬‫س‬ْ‫ف‬َ‫ن‬ِ‫ل‬‫ن‬َ‫أ‬َ‫وت‬ُ‫م‬َ‫ت‬ّ‫َل‬ِ‫إ‬ِ‫ن‬ْ‫ذ‬ِ‫إ‬ِ‫ب‬ِ ّ‫َللا‬‫ا‬ً‫ب‬‫ا‬َ‫ت‬ِ‫ك‬ً‫ل‬ّ‫ج‬ َ‫ؤ‬ُّ‫م‬
No soul shall die except with God’s permission and at an appointed
time.
—Quran 3:145
ْ‫ت‬َ‫اء‬َ‫ج‬ َ‫و‬ُ‫ة‬َ‫ر‬ْ‫ك‬َ‫س‬ِ‫ت‬ ْ‫و‬َ‫م‬ْ‫ل‬‫ا‬‫ق‬َ‫ح‬ْ‫ل‬‫ا‬ِ‫ب‬َ‫ك‬ِ‫ل‬ ََٰ‫ذ‬‫ا‬َ‫م‬َ‫نت‬ُ‫ك‬ُ‫ه‬ْ‫ن‬ِ‫م‬ِ‫ح‬َ‫ت‬ُ‫د‬‫ي‬
And The trance of death will come revealing the truth: that is what
you were trying to escape.
—Quran 50:19
Humans tend to be very shortsighted when planning for their future.
We plan for school, college, a career, family, children, retirement.
However, it tends to stop at that. Why don’t we plan for what we are
certain will happen without a doubt? The answer is because we are
scared of the unknown and are comfortable with what we know. We
escape to the next movie, binge watch a series, buy the newest gadget,
or distract ourselves with health or wealth. But, reality is that there is
no escape. It is only a matter of time before we die.
The Quran asks:
So where are you going?
―Quran 81:26
Whenever you hear of a death, take it as a reminder that life is never
guaranteed. You are here today, tomorrow you could be gone. Do
everything you can in this world to please your Lord while you still
have the ability.
From the earth We created you, and into it We will return you, and
from it We will extract you another time.
―Quran 20:55
Death can come anytime. It doesn’t matter if you’re healthy or
wealthy, you’ll have to go when it’s time. You can’t challenge or avoid
it:
Wherever you may be, death will overtake you, even if you are in
high protected towers.
―Quran 4:78
The death from which you run away will certainly approach you.
Then you will be returned to the One who knows the unseen and the
seen, and He will tell you what you have done.
―Quran 62:8
“No one except God knows when that Day (The Last Day) will come.
But what is certain is that, as the universe had a beginning, it will also
have an end. This end will take place in a manner frightful beyond
imagination, and at that time every living thing on earth will die. this
present life is only one brief stage on its journey from God to God.
And our Lord informs us repeatedly that our temporary life on this
earth is merely a trial, a test, an examination period.”

And give them a parable of this worldly life. It is like the vegetation of
the earth that thrives when watered by the rain, which We send down
from the sky, and then it all becomes stubble which the wind blows
away. Allah has power over all things.
—Quran 18:45

The analogy of the life of this world is only like water. We send it
down from the sky and then mingle it with the produce of the earth,
from which people and cattle eat; until, when the earth has put on its
ornaments and is embellished, and its people think that they have all
power over it, Our command reaches it by night or by day,
whereupon We cause it to be utterly destroyed, as if it had not
flourished the previous day. Thus do We explain the signs for people
who reflect.
—Quran 10:24

Know that this worldly life is no more than play, amusement, luxury,
mutual boasting, and competition in wealth and children. This is like
rain that causes plants to grow, to the delight of the planters. But later
the plants dry up and you see them wither, then they are reduced to
chaff. And in the Hereafter there will be either severe punishment or
forgiveness and pleasure of Allah, whereas the life of this world is no
more than the delusion of enjoyment.
—Quran 57:20
‫ا‬َ‫م‬ َ‫و‬ِ‫ه‬ِ‫ذ‬ ََٰ‫ه‬ُ‫ة‬‫ا‬َ‫ي‬َ‫ح‬ْ‫ل‬‫ا‬‫ا‬َ‫ي‬ْ‫ن‬ُّ‫د‬‫ال‬ِ‫إ‬ّ‫َل‬‫و‬ْ‫ه‬َ‫ل‬‫ِب‬‫ع‬َ‫ل‬ َ‫و‬ّ‫ن‬ِ‫إ‬ َ‫و‬َ‫الدّار‬َ‫ة‬َ‫ِر‬‫خ‬ ْ‫اْل‬َ‫ي‬ِ‫ه‬َ‫ل‬ُ‫ان‬ َ‫و‬َ‫ي‬َ‫ح‬ْ‫ل‬‫ا‬ْ‫و‬َ‫ل‬‫وا‬ُ‫ن‬‫ا‬َ‫ك‬َ‫ون‬ُ‫م‬َ‫ل‬ْ‫ع‬َ‫ي‬
This worldly life is no more than play and amusement. But the
Hereafter is indeed the real life, if only they knew.
—Quran 29:64
ّ‫م‬ُ‫ث‬‫م‬ُ‫ك‬ّ‫ن‬ِ‫إ‬َ‫د‬ْ‫ع‬َ‫ب‬َ‫ك‬ِ‫ل‬ ََٰ‫ذ‬َ‫ل‬َ‫ون‬ُ‫ت‬‫ي‬َ‫م‬ّ‫م‬ُ‫ث‬ْ‫م‬ُ‫ك‬ّ‫ن‬ِ‫إ‬َ‫م‬ ْ‫و‬َ‫ي‬ِ‫ة‬َ‫م‬‫ا‬َ‫ي‬ِ‫ق‬ْ‫ل‬‫ا‬َ‫ون‬ُ‫ث‬َ‫ع‬ْ‫ب‬ُ‫ت‬
Thereafter you are destined to die, then on the Day of Judgment you
will be resurrected.
―Quran 23:15–16
‫وا‬ُ‫ق‬ّ‫ت‬‫ا‬ َ‫و‬‫ا‬ً‫م‬ ْ‫و‬َ‫ي‬َ‫ون‬ُ‫ع‬َ‫ج‬ ْ‫ر‬ُ‫ت‬ِ‫ه‬‫ِي‬‫ف‬‫ى‬َ‫ل‬ِ‫إ‬ِ ّ‫َللا‬ّ‫م‬ُ‫ث‬َٰ‫ى‬ّ‫ف‬ َ‫و‬ُ‫ت‬ُّ‫ل‬ُ‫ك‬‫س‬ْ‫ف‬َ‫ن‬‫ا‬ّ‫م‬َ‫ب‬َ‫س‬َ‫ك‬ْ‫ت‬ْ‫م‬ُ‫ه‬ َ‫و‬َ‫َل‬َ‫ون‬ُ‫م‬َ‫ل‬ْ‫ظ‬ُ‫ي‬
And fear the Day when ye shall be brought back to Allah. Then shall
every soul be paid what it earned, and none shall be dealt with
unjustly.
―Quran 2:281
‫ِذ‬‫ئ‬َ‫م‬ ْ‫و‬َ‫ي‬َ‫ون‬ُ‫ض‬َ‫ر‬ْ‫ع‬ُ‫ت‬َ‫َل‬َٰ‫ى‬َ‫ف‬ ْ‫خ‬َ‫ت‬ْ‫م‬ُ‫ك‬‫ِن‬‫م‬‫ة‬َ‫ي‬ِ‫ف‬‫ا‬َ‫خ‬
That Day on which you will be brought to judgment, not a secret of
yours will be hidden.
—Quran 69:18
ّ‫ن‬ُ‫ل‬َ‫أ‬ْ‫س‬ُ‫ت‬َ‫ل‬ َ‫و‬‫ا‬ّ‫م‬َ‫ع‬ْ‫م‬ُ‫ت‬‫ن‬ُ‫ك‬َ‫ون‬ُ‫ل‬َ‫م‬ْ‫ع‬َ‫ت‬
And you will certainly be questioned about what you used to do.
—Quran 16:93
And yet we walk on earth so proudly as if we’re going to live here
forever... May Allah grant us all a righteous departure from this world.
Allah knows best.

Death is one of the few indisputable facts of life

  • 1. Death is one of the few indisputable facts of life. Regardless of faith, race, status or age, we will all die. While the certainty of death is universally accepted, the question of what happens afterwards has been debated throughout history. Despite its inevitability, we get so absorbed in living that we forget about death. Our daily routines, the comfort of our homes and our relationships keep us so busy that we have little time left to ponder over the fleeting nature of this world. Then, suddenly, we are forced to face the reality of our existence when a loved one is afflicted with a debilitating disease or we experience a shocking loss. Helpless, we are jolted by the frailty of life, leading us to question our priorities and reevaluate our lifestyles. According to Islam, when confronted with a calamity, one should say “To God we belong and to Him we shall return” -Quran 2:156. This invocation is also recited when someone dies. Reminding us of our origin and our ultimate destiny, it puts the purpose of our lives in perspective. ‫ا‬َ‫م‬ َ‫و‬َ‫ان‬َ‫ك‬‫س‬ْ‫ف‬َ‫ن‬ِ‫ل‬‫ن‬َ‫أ‬َ‫وت‬ُ‫م‬َ‫ت‬ّ‫َل‬ِ‫إ‬ِ‫ن‬ْ‫ذ‬ِ‫إ‬ِ‫ب‬ِ ّ‫َللا‬‫ا‬ً‫ب‬‫ا‬َ‫ت‬ِ‫ك‬ً‫ل‬ّ‫ج‬ َ‫ؤ‬ُّ‫م‬ No soul shall die except with God’s permission and at an appointed time. —Quran 3:145 ْ‫ت‬َ‫اء‬َ‫ج‬ َ‫و‬ُ‫ة‬َ‫ر‬ْ‫ك‬َ‫س‬ِ‫ت‬ ْ‫و‬َ‫م‬ْ‫ل‬‫ا‬‫ق‬َ‫ح‬ْ‫ل‬‫ا‬ِ‫ب‬َ‫ك‬ِ‫ل‬ ََٰ‫ذ‬‫ا‬َ‫م‬َ‫نت‬ُ‫ك‬ُ‫ه‬ْ‫ن‬ِ‫م‬ِ‫ح‬َ‫ت‬ُ‫د‬‫ي‬ And The trance of death will come revealing the truth: that is what you were trying to escape. —Quran 50:19
  • 2. Humans tend to be very shortsighted when planning for their future. We plan for school, college, a career, family, children, retirement. However, it tends to stop at that. Why don’t we plan for what we are certain will happen without a doubt? The answer is because we are scared of the unknown and are comfortable with what we know. We escape to the next movie, binge watch a series, buy the newest gadget, or distract ourselves with health or wealth. But, reality is that there is no escape. It is only a matter of time before we die. The Quran asks: So where are you going? ―Quran 81:26 Whenever you hear of a death, take it as a reminder that life is never guaranteed. You are here today, tomorrow you could be gone. Do everything you can in this world to please your Lord while you still have the ability. From the earth We created you, and into it We will return you, and from it We will extract you another time. ―Quran 20:55 Death can come anytime. It doesn’t matter if you’re healthy or wealthy, you’ll have to go when it’s time. You can’t challenge or avoid it: Wherever you may be, death will overtake you, even if you are in high protected towers. ―Quran 4:78
  • 3. The death from which you run away will certainly approach you. Then you will be returned to the One who knows the unseen and the seen, and He will tell you what you have done. ―Quran 62:8 “No one except God knows when that Day (The Last Day) will come. But what is certain is that, as the universe had a beginning, it will also have an end. This end will take place in a manner frightful beyond imagination, and at that time every living thing on earth will die. this present life is only one brief stage on its journey from God to God. And our Lord informs us repeatedly that our temporary life on this earth is merely a trial, a test, an examination period.” -Source: Suzanne Haneef, Islam: The Path of God, pages 59–63. [emphasis added] [Download PDF] Written by an American Muslim Convert/Revert to Islam. this is so far my favorite book. I highly recommend to read. ْ‫ب‬ِ‫ر‬ْ‫اض‬ َ‫و‬‫م‬ُ‫ه‬َ‫ل‬َ‫ل‬َ‫ث‬ّ‫م‬ِ‫ة‬‫ا‬َ‫ي‬َ‫ح‬ْ‫ل‬‫ا‬‫ا‬َ‫ي‬ْ‫ن‬ُّ‫د‬‫ال‬‫اء‬َ‫م‬َ‫ك‬ُ‫ه‬‫ا‬َ‫ن‬ْ‫ل‬َ‫نز‬َ‫أ‬َ‫ِن‬‫م‬ِ‫َاء‬‫م‬ّ‫الس‬َ‫ط‬َ‫ل‬َ‫ت‬ ْ‫اخ‬َ‫ف‬ِ‫ه‬ِ‫ب‬ُ‫ات‬َ‫ب‬َ‫ن‬ِ‫ض‬ ْ‫ر‬َ ْ‫اْل‬َ‫ح‬َ‫ب‬ْ‫ص‬َ‫أ‬َ‫ف‬‫ا‬ً‫م‬‫ي‬ِ‫َش‬‫ه‬ ُ‫ه‬‫و‬ُ‫ر‬ْ‫ذ‬َ‫ت‬ُ‫ح‬‫ا‬َ‫ي‬‫الر‬َ‫ان‬َ‫ك‬ َ‫و‬ُ ّ‫َللا‬َٰ‫ى‬َ‫ل‬َ‫ع‬‫ل‬ُ‫ك‬‫ء‬ْ‫ي‬َ‫ش‬‫ا‬ً‫ِر‬‫د‬َ‫ت‬ْ‫ق‬ُّ‫م‬ And give them a parable of this worldly life. It is like the vegetation of the earth that thrives when watered by the rain, which We send down from the sky, and then it all becomes stubble which the wind blows away. Allah has power over all things. —Quran 18:45
  • 4. ‫ا‬َ‫م‬َّ‫ن‬ِ‫إ‬‫ل‬َ‫ث‬َ‫م‬ِ‫اة‬َ‫ي‬َ‫ْح‬‫ل‬‫ا‬‫ا‬َ‫ي‬ْ‫ن‬ُّ‫الد‬‫اء‬َ‫م‬َ‫ك‬‫اه‬َ‫ْن‬‫ل‬َ‫َنز‬‫أ‬َ‫ن‬ِ‫م‬ِ‫اء‬َ‫م‬َّ‫الس‬َ‫ط‬َ‫ل‬َ‫ت‬ْ‫خ‬‫ا‬َ‫ف‬ِ‫ه‬ِ‫ب‬‫ات‬َ‫ب‬َ‫ن‬‫ا‬ِ‫ض‬ْ‫َر‬ْ‫ْل‬‫ا‬َّ‫م‬ِ‫م‬‫ل‬‫ْك‬‫أ‬َ‫ي‬‫َّاس‬‫ن‬‫ال‬ ‫ام‬َ‫ع‬ْ‫َن‬ْ‫اْل‬َ‫و‬‫َّى‬‫ت‬َ‫ح‬‫ا‬َ‫ذ‬ِ‫إ‬ِ‫ت‬َ‫ذ‬َ‫َخ‬‫أ‬ْ‫َر‬ْ‫اْل‬‫ض‬‫ا‬َ‫ه‬َ‫ف‬‫ر‬ْ‫خ‬‫ز‬ْ‫ت‬َ‫ن‬َّ‫َّي‬‫از‬َ‫و‬َّ‫ن‬َ‫ظ‬َ‫و‬‫ا‬َ‫ه‬‫ل‬ْ‫َه‬‫أ‬ْ‫م‬‫ه‬َّ‫َن‬‫أ‬َ‫ق‬ََ‫و‬‫ر‬ِِ‫ا‬‫ا‬َ‫ه‬ْ‫ي‬َ‫ل‬َ‫ع‬‫ا‬َ‫اه‬َ‫ت‬َ‫أ‬ ‫ا‬َ‫ن‬‫ر‬ْ‫َم‬‫أ‬ً‫ل‬ْ‫ي‬َ‫ل‬ْ‫َو‬‫أ‬‫ا‬ً‫ار‬َ‫ه‬َ‫ن‬‫ا‬َ‫اه‬َ‫ْن‬‫ل‬َ‫ع‬َ‫ج‬َ‫ف‬‫ا‬ً‫د‬‫ي‬ِ‫ص‬َ‫ح‬ََ‫أ‬َ‫ك‬ْ‫م‬َّ‫ل‬َ‫ن‬ْ‫غ‬َ‫ت‬ِ‫س‬ْ‫َم‬ْ‫اْل‬ِ‫ب‬َ‫ك‬ِ‫ل‬َ‫ذ‬َ‫ك‬َ‫ف‬‫ن‬‫ل‬‫ل‬‫ص‬ِ‫ات‬َ‫ي‬ ْ‫اْل‬‫م‬ْ‫و‬َ‫ق‬ِ‫ل‬ ََ‫و‬‫ر‬َّ‫ك‬َ‫ف‬َ‫ت‬َ‫ي‬ The analogy of the life of this world is only like water. We send it down from the sky and then mingle it with the produce of the earth, from which people and cattle eat; until, when the earth has put on its ornaments and is embellished, and its people think that they have all power over it, Our command reaches it by night or by day, whereupon We cause it to be utterly destroyed, as if it had not flourished the previous day. Thus do We explain the signs for people who reflect. —Quran 10:24 ‫وا‬‫م‬َ‫ل‬ْ‫ع‬‫ا‬َ‫م‬َّ‫ن‬َ‫أ‬‫ا‬‫اة‬َ‫ي‬َ‫ْح‬‫ل‬‫ا‬‫ا‬َ‫ي‬ْ‫ن‬ُّ‫الد‬‫ب‬ِ‫ع‬َ‫ل‬‫و‬ْ‫ه‬َ‫ل‬َ‫و‬‫ة‬َ‫ين‬ِ‫ز‬َ‫و‬‫ر‬‫اخ‬َ‫ف‬َ‫ت‬َ‫و‬ْ‫م‬‫ك‬َ‫ن‬ْ‫ي‬َ‫ب‬‫ر‬‫اث‬َ‫ك‬َ‫ت‬َ‫و‬‫ي‬ِ‫ف‬ِ‫ال‬َ‫و‬ْ‫َم‬ْ‫اْل‬ِِ َ‫َل‬ْ‫َو‬ْ‫اْل‬َ‫و‬ ِ‫ل‬َ‫ث‬َ‫م‬َ‫ك‬‫ث‬ْ‫ي‬َ‫غ‬َ‫ب‬َ‫ج‬ْ‫ع‬َ‫أ‬َ‫ار‬َّ‫ف‬‫ْك‬‫ل‬‫ا‬‫ه‬‫ات‬َ‫ب‬َ‫ن‬َّ‫م‬‫ث‬‫يج‬ِ‫ه‬َ‫ي‬‫اه‬َ‫ر‬َ‫ت‬َ‫ف‬‫ا‬ًّ‫ر‬َ‫ف‬ْ‫ص‬‫م‬َّ‫م‬‫ث‬‫ك‬َ‫ي‬َ‫و‬‫ا‬ً‫ام‬َ‫ط‬‫ح‬‫ي‬ِ‫ف‬َ‫و‬ِ‫ة‬َ‫ر‬ِ‫خ‬ ْ‫اْل‬ ‫اب‬َ‫ذ‬َ‫ع‬‫يد‬ِ‫د‬َ‫ش‬‫ة‬َ‫ر‬ِ‫ف‬ْ‫غ‬َ‫م‬َ‫و‬َ‫ن‬‫ل‬‫م‬ِ‫ه‬َّ‫ل‬‫ال‬َ‫ا‬َ‫و‬ْ‫ض‬ِ‫ر‬َ‫و‬‫ا‬َ‫م‬َ‫و‬‫اة‬َ‫ي‬َ‫ْح‬‫ل‬‫ا‬‫ا‬َ‫ي‬ْ‫ن‬ُّ‫الد‬َّ‫َل‬ِ‫إ‬‫اع‬َ‫ت‬َ‫م‬‫ْغ‬‫ل‬‫ا‬ِ‫ر‬‫و‬‫ر‬ Know that this worldly life is no more than play, amusement, luxury, mutual boasting, and competition in wealth and children. This is like rain that causes plants to grow, to the delight of the planters. But later the plants dry up and you see them wither, then they are reduced to chaff. And in the Hereafter there will be either severe punishment or forgiveness and pleasure of Allah, whereas the life of this world is no more than the delusion of enjoyment. —Quran 57:20
  • 5. ‫ا‬َ‫م‬ َ‫و‬ِ‫ه‬ِ‫ذ‬ ََٰ‫ه‬ُ‫ة‬‫ا‬َ‫ي‬َ‫ح‬ْ‫ل‬‫ا‬‫ا‬َ‫ي‬ْ‫ن‬ُّ‫د‬‫ال‬ِ‫إ‬ّ‫َل‬‫و‬ْ‫ه‬َ‫ل‬‫ِب‬‫ع‬َ‫ل‬ َ‫و‬ّ‫ن‬ِ‫إ‬ َ‫و‬َ‫الدّار‬َ‫ة‬َ‫ِر‬‫خ‬ ْ‫اْل‬َ‫ي‬ِ‫ه‬َ‫ل‬ُ‫ان‬ َ‫و‬َ‫ي‬َ‫ح‬ْ‫ل‬‫ا‬ْ‫و‬َ‫ل‬‫وا‬ُ‫ن‬‫ا‬َ‫ك‬َ‫ون‬ُ‫م‬َ‫ل‬ْ‫ع‬َ‫ي‬ This worldly life is no more than play and amusement. But the Hereafter is indeed the real life, if only they knew. —Quran 29:64 ّ‫م‬ُ‫ث‬‫م‬ُ‫ك‬ّ‫ن‬ِ‫إ‬َ‫د‬ْ‫ع‬َ‫ب‬َ‫ك‬ِ‫ل‬ ََٰ‫ذ‬َ‫ل‬َ‫ون‬ُ‫ت‬‫ي‬َ‫م‬ّ‫م‬ُ‫ث‬ْ‫م‬ُ‫ك‬ّ‫ن‬ِ‫إ‬َ‫م‬ ْ‫و‬َ‫ي‬ِ‫ة‬َ‫م‬‫ا‬َ‫ي‬ِ‫ق‬ْ‫ل‬‫ا‬َ‫ون‬ُ‫ث‬َ‫ع‬ْ‫ب‬ُ‫ت‬ Thereafter you are destined to die, then on the Day of Judgment you will be resurrected. ―Quran 23:15–16 ‫وا‬ُ‫ق‬ّ‫ت‬‫ا‬ َ‫و‬‫ا‬ً‫م‬ ْ‫و‬َ‫ي‬َ‫ون‬ُ‫ع‬َ‫ج‬ ْ‫ر‬ُ‫ت‬ِ‫ه‬‫ِي‬‫ف‬‫ى‬َ‫ل‬ِ‫إ‬ِ ّ‫َللا‬ّ‫م‬ُ‫ث‬َٰ‫ى‬ّ‫ف‬ َ‫و‬ُ‫ت‬ُّ‫ل‬ُ‫ك‬‫س‬ْ‫ف‬َ‫ن‬‫ا‬ّ‫م‬َ‫ب‬َ‫س‬َ‫ك‬ْ‫ت‬ْ‫م‬ُ‫ه‬ َ‫و‬َ‫َل‬َ‫ون‬ُ‫م‬َ‫ل‬ْ‫ظ‬ُ‫ي‬ And fear the Day when ye shall be brought back to Allah. Then shall every soul be paid what it earned, and none shall be dealt with unjustly. ―Quran 2:281 ‫ِذ‬‫ئ‬َ‫م‬ ْ‫و‬َ‫ي‬َ‫ون‬ُ‫ض‬َ‫ر‬ْ‫ع‬ُ‫ت‬َ‫َل‬َٰ‫ى‬َ‫ف‬ ْ‫خ‬َ‫ت‬ْ‫م‬ُ‫ك‬‫ِن‬‫م‬‫ة‬َ‫ي‬ِ‫ف‬‫ا‬َ‫خ‬ That Day on which you will be brought to judgment, not a secret of yours will be hidden. —Quran 69:18 ّ‫ن‬ُ‫ل‬َ‫أ‬ْ‫س‬ُ‫ت‬َ‫ل‬ َ‫و‬‫ا‬ّ‫م‬َ‫ع‬ْ‫م‬ُ‫ت‬‫ن‬ُ‫ك‬َ‫ون‬ُ‫ل‬َ‫م‬ْ‫ع‬َ‫ت‬ And you will certainly be questioned about what you used to do. —Quran 16:93 And yet we walk on earth so proudly as if we’re going to live here forever... May Allah grant us all a righteous departure from this world. Allah knows best. fatimakarimms.blogspot.com
