Anything can change in our lives within moments...
Are you fond of your car? Think about the owners of these cars.
People on this train didn't know it was their last train ride.
Always remember the life of this world is short and temporary
So much wealth gone within minutes...
A peaceful life is a blessing of Allah, make use of it before misfortune befalls you.
"O you who believe let not your riches or your children divert you from the remembrance of Allah and whoever do this the loss is their own. And spend in charity out of the substance which we have bestowed on you before death should come to any of you and he would say `O my Lord why don't You give me a respite for a little while? I should then have given largely in charity and I will be one of the doers of good. But to no soul will Allah grant respite when the time appointed for it has come and Allah is well-acquainted with all that you do." (al-Munafiqun 63:9-11)
Ibn 'Umar used to say, "In the evening, do not anticipate the morning, and in the morning do not anticipate the evening. Take from your health for your illness and from your life for your death." [al-Bukhari]
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) has said: "Take advantage of five matters before five other matters: your youth, before you become old; and your health, before you fall sick; and your richness, before you become poor; and your free time before you become busy; and your life, before your death." [Mustadrak of Al-Haakim, Musnad Imam Ahmad]
