Are we prepared?

Posted by Haris Gulzar on July 10, 2009

The following videos are eye openers. They are a lesson for all of us that death comes unannounced. But are we prepared for it? There are ample examples that we can see and observe around us. Examples we should learn from, examples to take heed from and start preparing for the Aakhirah. May Allah guide us all to Sirat-e-Mustaqeem. Ameen

Last Breath – Ahmed Bukhatir – Lyrics (Source)

From those around i hear a cry
an awful soft a hopeless sigh
i hear their footsteps leaving slow & then i know my
a chilly wind begins to blow within my soul from head to toe
& then the last breath escapes my lips
it’s time to leave & join my soul
so it’s true but it’s too late
they said each soul has it’s given date
when it must leave its body’s core
and meet with it’s eternal fate
at last it’s come to
decide which now
do not delay
come on my brothers let us pray
decide which now do not delay
i cannot see my eyes are blind
am i still me?
or has my soul been led astray
and forced to pay a priceless fee?
alas to dust we all return
& shall rejoice while others burn
if only i knew that before the line grew short & came my turn
& now as beneath the soil
they lay me with my record flawed
they cry not knowing that i cried worse
for they go home
i face my God
oh!mark the words that i do say
who know tomorrow could be your day
at last it’s come to
decide which now do not delay
come on my brothers let us pray
decide which now do not delay

    “Jaga ji lagane ki duniya nahi hai
    Yeh ibrat ki ja hai tamasha nahi hai”

    That’s all I could manage to think after watching these videos. May Allah forgive us and save us from a sudden death. aameen.

  3. @N.A: Exactly, ye ibrat ki ja hai, and we get ourselves so involved in the worldly affairs… May Allah guide us to Sirat-e-Mustaqeem. Ameen

    Wow! That video of the football player made me cry. Life really isn’t that simple, is it?

    تھا زندگی میں مرگ کا کھٹکا لگا ہوا
    اڑنے سے پیشتر ہی مرا رنگ زرد تھا

    The second video was freaky man. Looked like a skeleton dying!

  7. Asma said

    “maut ko samjhein hain ghafil ikhtitaam-e-zindagi
    hai ye shaam-e-zindagi, subh-e-dawam-e-zindagi”

  8. @Yawar: Well, probably life is simple, if we know how to live it…

    @Jafar: Shouldn’t we always be afraid of death, or not actually afraid, but be prepared always…

  9. @Senilius: Im not sure but probably the second video is of some MLA in India. He died during a press conference 😦

    @Asma: Thats so very true… Aakhirah is the actual life. Death is actually the start of life…
