“Every soul shall taste death.” Qur’an 29:57. “Wheresoever you may be, death will overtake you even if you are in fortresses built up strong and high!” Qur’an 4:78.
Death is the reality from which none can escape. It draws nearer every day; every hour; every minute. According to the CIA’s The World Factbook 2007, almost two people die each second. Death is not a disaster, but simply a passing from this world onto the next. It should make us reflect and ponder about the purpose of life, and what will become of us after death.
