Paul Walker (the actor from the 'Fast and the Furious' movies) passed away earlier today and this was the state of the car that he died in. There are some lessons we can learn from his death. One of the main lessons is that you will die the way you lived your life. So if you live your life in the fast lane, you will also die in the fast lane. If you live your life by the gun you will also die by the gun. If you live a righteous life, Allah (God) will in His infinite Mercy give you a righteous death. Many people think these celebrities are untouchable but the reality is different. I bet he was looking forward to the release of his new 'Fast and the Furious' film next year, without thinking he may be dead by then. Most of us do the same thing, we think about the future and ignore the fact that we may pass away before our plans become a reality. Only Allah (God) knows how long we have left in this world. Many of us may not be alive next week and that is the honest truth. So make the most of every minute you have in this world and do as much as you can for your Akhirah (afterlife) because as you can see from the picture, all it takes is a wrong move of the steering wheel and you are gone.
A true lesson in the saddness. Money and fame can NOT protect you.
I do feel sorry for the fact that they believe that money makes them somehow invincible. They get sick and die just like us every day folks. And, the money isn't going to make their grave any prettier.
So, all those people who live a righteous life, they never die like this? They always die a "righteous" death? And all people who die in car wreck, or get shot or whatever, none of them live their lives for God? That part makes no sense. I do agree with you that we never know how long we have left and should live every day like it's our last though.
