The death

Dear all,
I don’t mean to wow anyone by putting the topic above. But this is very true that we all will die and it means, we’ll be no more here, in the place where we love the most – the world. Yeah, we live just once and many people just say “roll the dice and enjoy your life”. Well, for some reasons this statement can be true. But, have we ever thought that after the life we live now, there will be an eternal life and that won’t end, guaranteed. Enjoying life means not spending and wasting our time buy doing such extravagant things, that’s what I’ve got on mind of mine, period!

Death is something that most people afraid of, so am I. No one knows for sure when she or he will die. No one wants to die, Steve Jobs has ever said, “The one who wishes to enter heaven doesn’t want to die to go there”. God has made death a mystery that can never be cracked by even super intelligent people or advanced technologies. Death is an incurable disease and unsolvable puzzle for every human and maybe for angel, Satan, jinn and everything. But for sure only Allah knows it.

A thing that shocked me when I was a child is that the term of NDE (Near Death Experience), in Indonesian it means “Mati suri”. According to Wikipedia, a near-death experience (NDE), refers to a broad range of personal experiences associated with impending death, encompassing multiple possible sensations including detachment from the body; feelings of levitation; extreme fear; total serenity, security, or warmth; the experience of absolute dissolution; and the presence of a light, which some people interpret as a deity. What I knew about NDE then was, someone who experienced the death then he or she revives or gets up to the earth, wow…such an astonishing thing. That really confiscated my attention since all kid is usually interested in thing seemed unreasonable or odd. Experts or researchers who pay attention to NDE or death itself are plenty. They pretty much do research to unveil the secret behind it. My religion teacher once told me that many of them even spend up to millions of dollars just to see the spirit goes from the body by devising expending stuff in the research.

The movie which shows us about the death is also excessive. Since I’m not a movie-aholic, I just give Final destination as the example. I have ever watched this movie and I think I don’t want to watch the next ones ^_^.
As Moslems, we are highly suggested to be remembering the death on every single day we have. We’ll always be in the right path since we’ll remember that we are here just for awhile. Life in this world is just a moment therefore we’ve gotta use our time wisely. I want myself to implement this too, but I haven’t been able to do so, at least I’ll try.

By remembering that today is the last day we have might make us more careful in living our life. We’ll be more wary when we’re about to make mistake or make sin to anyone. Besides, we’ll be more motivated to do the best and give the extraordinary one in every single effort we do. This is what I hope and everyone does too, right? Well, let’s keep making good deeds and improving our piety to God since we don’t know when will die, but remember, we will be getting old and we will disappear from this world - WE WILL DIE!
Thank you ladies and gentlemen,
