To God do we belong
Attended a Muslim funeral today. Once the coffin was lowered and they began covering it with dirt, the lonliness of the grave really struck me. You leave everything behind in death, no amount of tears will water you back to life, no prayer will resurrect you nor can any take your place. No matter what what you did, or even what you believe, there is one inescapable certainty, we too shall pass.
