Few days back, I had chance to visit my grand ma. It’s been quite a long time that I have visited there place and when I reached there, I was warm heartedly welcomed by all (my aunt, uncle and grand ma). I stayed there for a whole day and had lots of chit chat.
My grand ma is very old. She can hardly walk but all the time she is offering prayer or praising God. I don’t know how but I started thinking the days when she was young. Just like us. She would be as charming, full of life, passionate and aim full. She was energetic just like we are energetic today and hence she has lot of thinking other than thinking about *her last day*; Death. Those days, she had hardly thought about this thing, not because she doesn’t realize this fact but because she had lot of other things to do. Her relatives, her duties and her own life interests and being busy in those duties she had totally forgotten about this day.
I don’t know what her attitude was towards religion or how often she used to prayer. But at least she didn’t use to think about her last day to that extent, she now may be thinking.
Just imagine a person who is sure that any day can be his last day. He is saying this word and he is not sure that will he able to utter the second one or not. Imagine a person for whom every passing moment is another blessing since it’s not his time of death. How humble will he be? How devoted will he be towards his Religion?
Now, consider our self. What are we? Most of us say and believe that there will be one day, our last day. But how many of use really live each moment thinking about this? Forget about moment, how many of us really think on each day that the next day can be mine last day, am I prepared? Each day, we are so much indulge in thinking our professional task, academic assignments or relatives that we don’t think for a moment of this. We might have been much humble, pious and obedient of HIM if we have this thinking in our mind at each moment, or at least daily.
Tell me, when you are gona think about your last day; each and every day or Just before your end?
