"We were the lowest of all people and then Allah gave us glory by Islam, and if we seek glory in anything other than what Allah has given us (Islam), Allah will disgrace us."
I also wondered if my parents will die before me. I don’t know how I will handle it and sometimes I hope they survive me. I think I would collapse and die just thinking of what awaits them if I never witness their embrace of Islam. I pray Allah has mercy on them and guides them before death visits them.
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything -- all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure -- these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.”
