In Death

As Salam Alaikum,
Oh you wrapped up in white garments,
you will be honored.
You will be honored with a thorough washing and shrouding.
You will be honored for the good you put forth in this life
You will be prayed for and you will be prayed over!
Oh you wrapped up in white garments,
you will be honored.
You will be honored by those whom you prayed with, ate with, and
loved in this life.
Oh you wrapped up in white garments,
you will be honored with fine cloths, sweet scents and gracious words
from your brethren.
But remember, Oh you wrapped up in white garments,
you will be questioned. You will be alone in your niche, in your
space where no one will be next to you, where no soul will aid you in
answering your Lord.
You will be asked those three questions, you will be rewarded for
your good deeds and punished for your evil,
Oh you wrapped in white garments, remember you worshipped a Lord that
is Merciful, Forgiving and Kind. Remember that the Quran will speak
for you or against you on Yammul Qiyyamah.
Remember, Oh you wrapped up in white garments that the Angel of Death
is near waiting for the command of His Lord, to take your soul from
your body and that Angel hastens to please and obey His Lord.
Oh you wrapped up in white garments leave behind good deeds that will
benefit you in the grave where you will be left alone,
Once the footsteps have gone, once the dirt has been layed.
There you will come to know that,
Oh you wrapped up in white garments, the true test has begun!
