“Am I ready for death ? What kind of actions have my hands sent forth? Are they actions of people of Jannah or people of Hell? Do I still have time? What can I do to prepare?”
I had a dream two days ago. I was comparing myself to the disbelievers and being grateful that I was a Muslim. I also told myself that my Eman was becoming a little weak and that I should utilize all the precious time that I had to remember Allah as much as I could because I could die any moment. Once I would die, there would be nothing I could do to change what I have done and to repent for my sins. So I would have to start doing everything now.
I don’t consider myself ready for death yet. I have to start improving my Eman and spending more time in remembering Allah than wasting it in the dunya. I think that some of my actions are of the people of Hell and that there’s room for more improvement.
I don’t think that I have time because when I wake up in the morning there are chances that I may live to see tomorrow. Every change that I need to make should be made NOW. Once I die I can’t go back to change myself.
I can prepare for death by remembering and worshipping Allah more and by refraining from activities that can weaken my Eman. I need to make a list of all the things which I’m doing wrong and I need to start working now to positively change each and every one of them. I also need to pay off my debts to Allah, like days which I have not fasted etc. I need to start repenting for all my sins sincerely. If I start acting now and actually do all of this I can be better prepared for death inshAllah.
