Have you ever celebrated the journey of your death!

Posted January 1, 2020 from Somalia

  Suppose that you are a traveler. Your plan is to visit all somali resident towns; but you have extreme enemies that want to make end your life; and you don't know which somali town they live in and ever their appearance. May be they live every town or one of the towns. So, how much happiness do you get from your trip in every town? How is your attention ganna be? Alert or go easy?  I think you will be an alert person! You doubt by everyone who turns to your face; May be the enemy! 

   Same as, we all celebrate every new year comes. We don't know whether the year we are welcoming is last year of our lives. Nobody knows when he/she dies. It is a hard journey with helpless.Your death was already ordained. No matter how many years we welcomed. They left and and every one forgot easily; but their result effected us.              Yesterday, you were a young and strong but year after you become an old and weak. Most people will hate you your weakness and your age. These Years we are welcoming lead to us our graves. A friendly minded person never forget the basic truth. 

May Allah guide us to the straight path way!  Happy new 2020 year!

Hello, Farxaan,

Thank you for sharing your perspective on new years and death in a metaphor of a traveler. It's true, we never know when our last year will be. It's great to be alert or wise on how we live each day.

Happy New Year! I hope this won't be our final year yet.

Hi Farxaan,
I hope you are fine? That is a nice opening image, is that in Somalia? I wonder with that fresh green veggies haha. I stand to be corrected.
Unfortunately we don't give much attention to this our arch enemy Death. If we do only then we will know that our enemies are not humans but Death!
Thanks for sharing to inspire us. Have a great day.

Thanks for reminding us how precious this journey live is... Death they say Is inevitable so we must keep our hopes and dreams alive because no one knows tomorrow

Hi Farxaan,

Thanks for the reminder to be present and make each every moment, day, month, year count. We get so caught up in our daily lives sometimes that we don't take notice of all the things to be grateful for. What are you most grateful for in this moment, and day?!

Happy New Year to you, too!

Hi Farxaan,
Thanks for your post. It's important how we live each day. We need to be accountable for the time we spend. Time once lost is never gained.
Thanks and looking forward to more of your posts.
Have a great day and great 2020
