A Door to Afterlife
كُلُّ نَفْسٍۢ ذَآئِقَةُ ٱلْمَوْتِ
"Every soul will taste death..." (Ali-Imran, 3:185)
There are so many verses in the Quran and Hadith which describe about death. Why? As the verse tell above that 'every soul will taste death', it means that everyone who lives in this world will be dead someday, sooner or later and unpredictable, nobody knows! Rasulullah saw. (PBUH) had told that the most intelligent person is the one who always remember about death and the one who has best prepared to face it (HR.Ibnu Majah, Thabrani, dan Al Haitsamiy).
Death will come to every person so unpredictable, that's why we should prepare all the best to face it. Of course, we don't want to face it without bring anything, right? Death is just like a door which we open to enter a new world out there. If we do not bring anything to make us keep 'alive' and safe there, so what will happen to us? We'll be suffered! Whereas, the world we'll enter is longer even everlasting for our ages. That's why Rasulullah saw. kept telling us to remind this thing which some people forget that they might feel to live in this world forever. This world is only a halfway house, we will leave it sooner or later and come to the place where we belong to.
Death is a silent advice to make people think and even change. The more we remember it, the more also we're closer to Allah, that is what should happen actually. Death is also a breaker all pleasures in the world. We are surrounded by it, wherever we are, we can't avoid it! Even we're hiding in the most secret place, death will find us. That should be remembered!
We should learn from death that we couldn't stay in this world forever. Yup...just remember, our death train will come after us into somewhere new, where the afterlife begins. Just wait, hehe :)
Don't forget to prepare our long journey! Bring all the things you need, and it's all our good deeds in Allah's way! Straight our journey purpose into His heaven, and don't go somewhere else! I hope we all will get the tickets soon, aamiin~!
Good luck and farewell....!HR. Ibnu Majah, Thabrani, dan Al Haitsamiy.
