“Every soul will taste death”

Dedicated to Nadir Naeem, a dear friend whom we lost today forever, he shall be in our memories and prayers till we all breathe.

I once read somewhere “namaz parhein, Qabl is ke keh apki namaz parhi jai” as said in Surah Aale Imraan Ayat 185, “Every soul will taste death, and you will only be given your [full] compensation on the Day of Resurrection. So he who is drawn away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise has attained [his desire]. And what is the life of this world except the enjoyment of delusion”. The recent tragic death of a dear friend Nadir Naeem triggered a strange question amongst our friends are we really prepared to face God. Everyone claims they need to inevitably reach this stage but it’s a matter of how well prepared you are to face your maker. All religious sects agree and no one can deny that the Entity Who created the universe in stages and to Whom we shall all inevitably return. The time for some is nearer than the others. It’s a sheer contrariety of perspective. A glass is half empty or half full shall always remain an argument. Death as we know it is natural to feel hurt and feel the loss of a beloved from your life and sometimes not even time can heal it or at least as quickly as may desire it to. Never the less life must come to an end as this world is a temporary abode. Death is a curtain between the worlds, some say it’s the end of life whilst my philosophy is that death is yet another step closer to meeting your God. All I can say is let’s prepare while we have the time before it’s too late.
