Arrival & Departure of Worlds


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Sayyidina ‘Ali ibn Abi Thalib (k.w.) said, as recorded in Nahj al-Balagahah, “Surely this world has turned its back, and announced its departure, while the next world has appeared, and proclaimed its approach.  Today is the day of preparation, while tomorrow is the day of the race.  The place to proceed to is Paradise, while the place of doom is Hell.  Is there no one to offer repentance over his faults before his death?  Or, is there no one to perform virtuous acts before the day of trial?

Beware, surely you are in the days of hopes behind which stands death.  Whoever acts during the days of his hope before approach of his death, his action would benefit him, and his death would not harm him.  But he who fails to act during the period of hope before the approach of death, his action is a loss, and his death is a harm to him.”
