DEATH IS JUST A TRANSITIONAL POINT.


It is a pity that most of us do not realize that we are created for the Hereafter and that this life is only a PREPARATORY PERIOD. The life of this world, compared to that of the Hereafter is but a BRIEF PASSING MOMENT.

I was talking the other day about death (Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) advised us to mention death every now and then), and my beloved Mama mentioned to me, that back then (when she was a li'l girl) in the small town she lived in, people felt sooooooo SAD if someone died, and half of that sadness was because sometimes they had to wait for another day until certain rituals take place (as the town is small, and procedures do take time), in order for that dead person to gets buried. (i.e., dead bodies might stink fast as in summer it gets real hot and humid)
Believe it?
I.e., one's mom dies, he gets scared 'cuz it might take him another day staying in the same house with her, and she might stink fast, and he won't take the smell.
Look, we are nothing without our ruh (soul).
Let's keep it a clean and purify our SELVES.

Hope I get buried as soon as I die, Amen.
And what's more important is dying with a purified soul. Amen.

*{Those who believe and lead a righteous life, and observe the Contact Prayers, and give the obligatory charity, they receive their recompense from their Lord; they will have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.}*
--(Al-Baqarah 2:277)


DEATH IS A FACT OF LIFE.
