# Assalamualaikum,I believe that we are who we choose to be. Nobody's going to come and save you,you've got to save yourself. Nobody's going to give you anything; you've got to go out and fight for it. Nobody knows what you want except for you. And nobody will be as sorry as you if you don't get it. So, don't give up on your dreams. Life always offers you a second chance. Its called tomorrow #

A SHORT LETTER TO MYSELF — A REMINDER OF DEATH

Hello and Asslamualaikum...

Dear Myself,


Do you remember the enlightenment you get every time you read the Qur’an? Do you remember those tears out of fear of Allah ( SWT ) and at the same time gratefulness because you are within the fold of Islam? Haven’t you missed the times when the happiness you feel is genuine and not the crappy type? Haven’t you missed the times that you are certain that you are living your life rightfully? Haven’t you missed the feeling of contentment that if ever your last hour comes, you know you are ready?

How many times do you have to witness death before you realize that indeed death will just knock you on the day you least expect it? How many catastrophe you ought to see for you to widely open your eyes from the fact that one day you’ll be among the people who are gone? How many warnings from your Islamic teachers, parents, concerned friends and relatives you need to receive for you to decide that it’s time for you to change? Why do you ignore this reality that can just turn your existence into naught in just second? I hope it is not too late for you to realize that you need to live your day as if it’s your last because the only thing that you will surely go through is death.

The Prophet (saws) said: “Take benefit of five before five: Your youth before your old age, your health before your sickness, your wealth before your poverty, your free time before you are preoccupied, and your life before your death” - Narrated by Ibn Abbas and reported by Al Hakim

Truly By,
Nurul Shazwani Ariffin ;)
