"Every soul shall have a taste of death: And only on the Day of Judgment shall you be paid your full recompense. Only he who is saved far from the Fire and admitted to the Garden will have attained the object (of Life): For the life of this world is but goods and chattels of deception." (Al Imran Chapter 3 verse 185)

One of my brother's friend lost his life in a house fire caused by a gas leak (his older brother, his wife and two kids were also lost in this tragedy). The boy (called Abdirahman) was only 18.

My mom just called us from back home to tell us this. It happened this afternoon (kenya time).

May ALLAH have mercy on them and grant them jannah! Ameen

This reminds me that death does not discriminate.
Truly......kulu nafsun da'iqatal maut!

Life is short.........people let us use our time on earth productively.
I for one need to increase my dhikr and taqwa. Lately my 'ibadah hasn't been what it should be.

Inalillahi wa ina ilayhi raji'un.
