It is not easy nor comfortable to contemplate death. Some of us try to avoid the thought altogether. But this is our inevitable fate, a certainty.
We’re reminded, sometimes painfully, of our short time on Earth through the passing of a loved one. Or even someone not close to us.
We all have our different views on the finality of death. Some believe this corporeal life is just a momentary blip on the soul’s longer journey.
“And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient, who, when calamity strikes them, say, “Innā lillāhi wa ‘innā ilayhi rāji’ūn”. [2:155-156]
“Indeed, we belong to God, and indeed, toward Hu, we are returning.”
