People live in desperate denial,
They knock on wood when reminded,
Reminded by the death shall come.
Because the reminder of death,
Gives them awkwardness & sadness,
Thinking about their worldly affairs.
Know my friend this worldly life,
Is just a very short span of time.
Compare to how long dead stays in the grave.
And the grave is like an airport terminal,
Just a layover while waiting for the flight,
To the final destination of life perpetual.
Just hours delay of flight is a great hassle,
Think about years in the tiny grave waiting,
& asking when is the judgement day coming?
It’s agitating & lonely state in the grave,
That is why in the Qur’an we are reminded,
Think about it! “Every soul shall taste death.”
We are reminded so that we are always aware,
We are made aware so that we can prepare.
Because death comes to us with out any notice.
In some prophetic narration it is said:
“You will die just like the way you lived,”
“& you will be resurrected on Judgment day”
“just like the way you died.”
