Death should be in our minds all the time.
I don’t mean paralysing you, scaring you every second of your life.
But the thought of death should be at the back of your mind, tugging, tickling, pulling at your consciousness. It should be subtle but obvious to remind us of it.
Death is a good reminder to us all on why we should always do good, why we should always act the best and behave well, all the time, whenever. To enjoin in what is good and forbid anything that is evil.
We don’t want to be caught off guard by death as we are committing a sin? We do not want to die while sinning. Imagine being exposed and unable to defend your own dignity. What a tragic way to end isn’t it?
However, we’re still human after all and by being human means that we’re still prone to sin no matter how hard we try. But, that doesn’t give us an excuse to sin. We should try our very best to not sin.
I guess you can say that free will comes with a cost but also remember that if we are able to obey Allah SWT, we’re better than the angels.
I guess I’ll leave you guys at that. Think about death once in a while, know that it is coming for you so you have to be at your best when it comes knocking… on… your… door.
Knock. Knock. Knock.
