"Everyone shall taste death. And only on the Day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full. And whoever is removed away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise, he indeed is successful. The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception."  - 3:185

Death is a reality of life that everyone will face without any reason to argue. Death is also a reality in life that we, no one will ever know when/how/where it will approach. If and only if, we know when will we die, I bet we are not gonna do the things we had done in the past. And we'll surely fulfilling the obligation, refraining from forbidden things and acquiring noble character. We must be enthusiastically in doing the good deeds. But the fact that we do not know when is the reason we did those things we know we shouldn't.

Last two weeks, on Sunday 10th, when we were supposed to get ready for a wedding, my mom got a news that her grandfather (my great grandfather) had just passed away. Before that, on Friday 8th, I got a news that one of my seniors had also passed away at a very young age. And months ago, I knew that some people had just lost their mom/dad. I bawled my eyes out whenever I tried to put my shoes in theirs. It's such a sad.. heartbroken.. and ah I don't know what's the exact word to be used but, I just can't whenever it comes to someone's death. Because I'm such overly sensitive that I imagined those things happen to me ; losing your beloved ones, and I'll cry a river.

Oh and yes, about that MH17 plane, it is such a heartbroken news. I. Just. Can't. Seeing the families crying and sobbing in the tv touched me so hard. Then I remembered, every human being is bound to taste death. So develop compassion for others, shows concern for others and become less concerned for material possession before it's too late.

Nothing is too late they said, yes but when you've lost your beloved ones, can you turn back time?
To show your love?
To make them happy?
To show your concern?
To ask forgiveness from them?
To tell them you're not mad at them?
To tell that you love them even if you're not showing it?
To say that you've forgive them even if you're acting like not?
To tell them that they're important in your life and you just can't live without them?

No. You can't turn back time to do so. It's too late then. Too late for you to realize to be grateful and thank Him for every single thing He had gave you.

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 your preoccupation and
Your life before your death.

Death is never too early or too late. Just right on time.

Verily, we are Allah's and verily to Him shall we return
