Learning lessons from deaths of friends

SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali (AS) said: It seems that death is written for everyone except us, and the truth has become Wajib for everyone except us, and as if these dead ones are passengers who will be back soon, while we bury their bodies in graves, and eat from their inheritances. It seems that after their deaths, we are going to last forever! Is it really like this that we forget the advice of any man and woman, and place ourselves in the direction of the arrows of calamities and disasters [1]?

[1] Nahjul Balaghah, Wisdom 122.
