Al-Fatihah to Tunku Laksamana Johor, Tunku Abdul Jalil Iskandar Sultan Ibrahim who have passed away peacefully on 5th December 2015 at 1911 hours. May Allah blessed him with His rahmah and rewards his kindness with Jannah. Ameen.
Any death news should be a good reminder to all of us. A reminder for us to do self-introspection, to do a self-check on how well are we in performing our obligations as Allah's servant in this temporary world. A good reminder for us to reflect back on our journey in this temporary world. Are we always doing the right things or the opposite ones?
Allah never promised us that there is no possibility of die young. Only He knows how long each of us will walk across this temporary destination prior to meet Him at the final point. But He do remind us via His Holy Book, Qur'an that we have no other choice rather than to equipped ourselves with good deeds and try to avoid any means of doing bad things that may bring us to hell in the hereafter.

If this kind of view make us feel like in Heaven, how about the Real Heaven?
Allah is justice indeed. He didn't let us to walk without any right direction in this temporary world. He provides us with the DO's and DON'Ts. He warned us since 1400 years ago on the consequences for not performing our obligations as His servant. It is totally depends on us either to walk along with His guidance or just being an ignorant. It is our choice. All of us have been given the materials, the guidance, the direction; you name it.
It is so true that death is the best reminder for all of us. This world is definitely not a final destination. Whenever there is an evil whisper inside us to do something bad, pause a moment, ask ourselves, do we want to be one of the heaven occupants, or hell is our preferred final destination?
Everybody will be leaving. It is just sooner or later. Always strive to be the best person we ever been in every single day; as we do not know when is our final day in this temporary world.
After all, who promise us tomorrow?
Have a nice day :)
