Losing someone you love...

Losing someone you love...


 

Losing someone you love a friend or a member of your family is probably one of the worst experiences of life. It doesnít matter how strong you are; nothing can prepare you for the death of a loved one. When you first hear about what's happened youíre in denial you canít believe that someone you know and love is dead. You canít bear the thought of never seeing, hearing or talking to them again. You feel numb even fearful at the thought. You keep expecting and hoping against hope to see them somewhere even if it was for a second to say the things you didnít say but fate is cruel and you donít get a second chance to say sorry, thank you or I love you. When you lose someone you start to think about your life and how there are so many things that you say and do that are wrong and a waste of valuable time. You start to consider questions like am I using my time wisely? If I die tomorrow will I have said everything Iíve wanted to say to the people in my life? Have I done everything I shouldíve done, did I prepare well for the after life? Most of the time the answer to these questions is no because we never think of the prospect of dieing we never think what if there is no tomorrow. We argue with those closest to us and donít forgive them for mistakes. We let our anger take control of us and say things in the heat of the moment without ever seriously considering what we are saying. We never take the time to pray or to offer thanks to our creator for everything he has blessed us with. We always worry about material things but never consider the soul the only thing we will be taking with us from this world. We never satisfy the soul our passport to paradise. We fear losing our friends and family because we feel such strong love for them but do they know that? Do we ever take the time to be sentimental or do we consider feelings as uncool? We never take the time to say those nice things or to just give a smile to show that we love them. We lead such fast and busy lives that we donít have the time to even say salaam in some cases we donít think what if the next time I see this person itís too late or what if there is no next time?

In conclusion I would like to say that life is too short for arguments mistakes and waiting for tomorrows that never come. We should make the most of our lives and say salaam, thank you, sorry and I love you more often or just give a smile to make someone's day because a smile says a lot more than a silence. We should live each day as our last and live our life so that we are prepared for our death.  We should satisfy our souls and pay as much attention to our soul as we do to everything else and not get caught up in this fast and busy world because this is just a journey to our final abode.  Live your life as a good Muslim and ensure that you have secured your place in paradise. Always remember Allah first thing in the morning and last thing at night for you never know when you may have to leave this world and go to the afterlife where excuses are irrelevant, where you stand before Allah alone and answer to your mistakes. Remember Allah is merciful and it is never too late to change your life.

We should smile more often and not get angry with those we love so easily because at the end of the day we are all humans and inclined to make mistakes that hurt and cause pain to the ones we love. We should always let them know we didnít mean it because most of the time we donít and we should always give the ones we love a second chance because death doesnít wait for us to say bye or I love you. You have one chance at this life and it is up to you to live your life correctly and to please Allah who has blessed you so much. Death comes without warning and gives no second chances.
