Muslims have truly ruined the beauty of having a simple marriage/Nikaah. Marry for the sake of pleasing Allah, and not for impressing society.

My Final Journey:::
I am lying on the bed. My children, brothers and sisters are all sitting by my bedside. Some close friends too are standing and overlooking my face.
Suddenly I start breathing with long breaths. Someone among the people sitting in the room starts to recite, Surah Ya’sin. Everyone around repeats with the reciter. My breath starts to ease out. I am opening my eyes and looking at something. Angel of death has arrived. I am getting late for the eternal journey. My mouth has opened up. My brother is dropping some water into my mouth, it is perhaps the “Zam Zam” water which I had preserved for the very moment.
Then everyone starts to recite, “Laa’ilaaha I’llallaah Muhammadur Rasoolullaah”.
I have lost my vision. I have lost my tongue, I have even lost my sensation but I can still hear. I can hear my loved ones weeping in grief. I’m not dead yet but I am almost lifeless. Angel of death makes the final act and takes my soul out with an intensive jerk. I have now left this world.
All my wealth, cars, properties, bank balances, contacts and connections are of no use now. My identity is my grave and I am being referred to as ‘dead body’.
My near ones are preparing my grave and some of them think it as inauspicious to keep the dead body inside the house for too long. The house which I myself built and lived in is shrinking in space for me.
My bath is being prepared. I am taken out in the compound for the final bath. My bathroom fitted with expensive bath fittings is not for me now.
I am being wrapped in the white cotton shroud. I am boxed in a wooden box for the travel to my grave. My expensive car is not for me now.
For what then did I amass so many worthless things?
Why did I lie to earn the useless wealth? It is of no use to me.
Woe to me for I wasted my life in vain!
I forgot that my last journey is near and certain.
Why did I sin so much?
Oh! I have lost my game!
Now stop imagining. This is going to happen one day with you and me. So be prepared.
Good deeds will make your journey and the life of the Hereafter pleasant!
Remember death. It is certain!! It is so near!!
This world is just a short dream.

I find listening to other people’s conversations and just watching them fascinating. My favorite place is on public transportation because you always get a dynamic mix of people. It gives a much different perspective than what you get with your own social groups or reading online. You see a mix of IQs, ages, ethnicities, income and interests. You can try to figure out their job and background. It is always interesting to try to figure out which drugs some people are on or what diseases they might have. You also aren’t expected to socialize and it isn’t considered as weird to just observe people in that setting. It is amazing how so little can tell so much about a person.
So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they’re busy doing things they think are important. This is because they’re chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.
When you do something noble and beautiful and nobody notices, do not be sad. For the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps.
