Death: A beautiful gift for a believer.
Death is a natural phenomenon for all living creatures. It is part of the life cycle. Eventually everyone will die. Still, the when-where-how-why one's death happen is remain unknown to us. Only Allah knows. One thing that we must keep in mind is that death is inevitable, and everything except Allah The Almighty of course, will perish one day. Signs of death can be seen all around us both directly or indirectly. At funerals we see people who were once walking among us being buried. During autumn we see the leaves turn from green to yellow and falling one by one, while during winter we only see trees without leaves, lifeless. So all things in this world will wither away and die.
My prematurely born nephew died yesterday at the hospital. It is considered as the neonatal death as he only survived for 5 days after being incubated. I know it would be quite sad for the expectant parents to accept the fact of their son's death but Allah loves him even more. May Allah take good care of my little nephew (even I don't have the chance to see his face) but I'm pretty sure that he is cute and lovable. May he rest in peace insyaAllah. My most sincere condolences to my dear sister and family on the loss of him.
