Work Harder & Get Ready

In Arabic we have a saying " من كان يريد واعظا فالموت يكفيه ", which transaltes " whoever needs a preacher, death is enough ".
Y am I saying this, becoz in the past couple of days there have been a few deaths for celebs in Egypt. The 95 year old Noble prize winner Naguib Mahfouz & three 22 year old football players.
This is just a reminder, death can knock our door at any time. It doesn't matter if you are old or young.
Does this mean that we should let our lives and live like monks ?? Certainlly not, we must work and work harder to acheive something in our lives. But at the same time bearing in mind that we can be out of this world in a matter of seconds.
We should try to stop commiting our sins, worship more and have faith in ALLAH.

It's the first time ever for me to hear this saying.. SO TRUE..

There is this saying said by the prophet (pbuh) that I love..
It says:
"akthero men thikr hadim allathat"
