“now I’d love to be able to participate in life one last time…”

Came across a series of pictures that I think are both interesting, inspirational and unsettling a bit.

Life Before Death.


These are a series of pictures of people before and after they die. They are tasteful yet somber. If you're disturbed by death please do not click on the link.

Excerpts:

"Gerda couldn’t believe that cancer was cheating her of her hard-earned retirement. “My whole life was nothing but work, work, work,” she told me. She had worked on the assembly line in a soap factory, and had brought up her children single-handedly. “Does it really have to happen now? Can’t death wait?” she sobbed."

"I wonder if it’s possible to have a second chance at life? I don’t think so. I’m not afraid of death — I’ll just be one of the million, billion grains of sand in the desert…”

What if life starts after death?

What if we don't become just grains of sand in the desert?

What if we have to get ready for that life? and we know we'll never be ready!

If that the case, should the transition point be serious?

Should we be afraid of death?

I think we really should!

salah: I think what we believe about death as Muslims is both scary and very peaceful.

I find people's beliefs on death fascinating.
