If You Had 24 Hours

****This was from a couple of weeks ago and I just realized I didn't post it.***********
My mother had turned on the radio early this morning and they were talking about the tsunami that hit Japan. They were discussing what they would do if they only had 24 hours to live. Some the responses were I would all my favorite food, throw the party of my life and go out with a bang. One was really appalling saying if I was still a virgin I would lose my virginity. SubhanAllah. Really? If you knew that you were going to die in 24 hours, that is what you would do?
Wouldn't you want to be supplicated asking Allah for forgiveness, to praise Him, to ask Him to have mercy on you? This comes to show how people are so blinded by the life of this world and all its charms. They have become so wrapped up in the materialistic things of this dunya and forget about their creator
The time and place of our death are known to none except Allah (SWT). This is part of the wisdom of Allah. If we knew when we were gonna die, we would be more focused on or worship to Allah. But this life is a test and knowing that would make things too easy. This is why we need to make sure that we make dhikr, du'a and more ibadah each and everyday for we never know when Allah will call us back to Him. So remind yourself everyday, what have I done to secure my akhira?

I'll probably spend some time to settle things related to my dunia... my family, posession and all.. then be in khalwah (commmunion?) with Allah.. asking His forgiveness and Rahmah..
