Macabre Thoughts

Death : the absolute truth:

It ‘s a pure truism to note that every human soul will make the death rattle .Mankind is doomed to get wiped out off the face of the earth .life is transient ; eternity is the preserve of the Omnipotent .Yet, most humans thrust the prospect of death in the limbo of the forgotten and behave as if they would live forever. Intermittently, The loss of kith or kin serves as a reminder of the certitude of death.

Death Phobia:

Human beings fear death .They know it is a certitude but it remains a mystery they can’t fathom.Likewise, death is closely associated with burial, tombs and darkness.The prospect of being entombed underground sends a chill down anybody’s spine.The certainty that one will get separated from his relatives and friends is a disturbing thought as well. However, pious people don’t dread death in itself , but the meeting of Allah, the judgement and the verdict.

Death : the destroyer of pleasures:

Life is the cradle of pleasures.Most people indulge in multifarious pleasures : money ,sex, food , procreation…etc .Death puts an end to all of these.These earthly pleaures themselves are short-lived and susceptible to fade away in hours or even seconds.The eternal ,genuine pleasures are to be found in paradise in the after-life.

Death : the grand leveller:

Life is brimful of inequities.Some people are filthy rich while others are poverty-stricken; some are healthy whereas others suffer from incurable or chronic diseases, a few are leaders but the majority are subjects and subordinates.Death level the palying field .All are sent back to clay in humble coffins ;possessions and prerogatives are left behind .Kings and beggars occupy similar graves having as company worms.

Death : the end ?

Even the staunch atheists recognize the certain advent of death , but they fail to conceptualize an after- life .For them , death is the terminus of life ; they envisage neither judgement nor reward after death.They think resurrection is an impossible occurence .This is of course sheer nonsense because every human soul shall be brought back to life ( this is easy task for Our Lord), shall go through a fair and strict judgement of deeds ; which entails either reward ( paradise) or punishment (hell).In fact ,death is the watershed between life and the Hereafter.

  1. people think too much about death, dont they?

    i personally believe that death means “the end” , earlier i was a little afraid of it, but with growing maturity i am becoming nonchalant toward it (my own death), the death of other things worries me more.

    you are an awesome writer.

  2. “Death: the grand leveler” That paragraph is the reality that most people fail to see while they live. Wonderful work here.

  3. Heavy,
