Participate in Your Funeral Procession

Author: Dr. Ayed Al Qarni
Translated from Arabic to English by Abu Abdullah

Before you die, I request you that you die now for just a minute. Close your eyes and think about your funeral while you are on the bier with the procession group. What state do you want to be after death? Be in that state now. Correct your mistakes. Improve your character. Ask forgiveness for your sins. Open a new page of good character and behavior. Wash your heart from hatred. Clean your conscience from betrayal. You will certainly be remembered for what you did so create the pens of truth. People are the witnesses of Allah on his earth. If they mention you well it will be an acceptable witness in front of the One and Only. If they mention you badly then what grief awaits you?

Indeed we are in the previous ground but we will have no disgrace and there is not for us in front of the shout and the noise that will abase us with it from the Hereafter except that we die only every day one minute – sixty seconds … So we reflect and we repent and we improve our deeds. If we live this minute every day we will return to be upright, loving the good, being useful to people, generous, mild-mannered and approachable. Whoever forgets death, he will live in forgetfulness and will not be watchful of his Lord and will not be accountable to oneself.

We are not more needful of internal peace and this is an issue of man with his self. This was indicated by the book “Don’t be concerned with small issues” by Richard Calson … but this issue originated from Islam from before…What is intended is that the heart of man is not colonized by resentment and hatred and that he makes it a green garden by love and faith. There are those from all delightful pairs from the benefits of character.

How unfortunate for him who fills his heart with rancor, hatred, fraud and envy until it becomes ruins, inhabited by snakes and scorpions.

It is obligatory for us to have mercy on ourselves before people from this destructive war inside us that do not benefit others.

Why don’t we free ourselves from the binding contract? Some of us trust that the people are its enforcers and fabricate for it a plan and he alone is good… and this is idle talk as the people have different beliefs and a lot of good and you will find good people everywhere.

 Look at the flower and do not look at its thorn and watch the moon and do not be engrossed in darkness.


            The eye denies the sunlight due to its sickness

                                                And the mouth denies the taste of water from its ailment.
