“So seek safety fast, for there is a vigorous seeker pursuing you: the grave.”-Ali (Pbuh)

“One day, Ali (Pbuh), mounted the podium, praised Allah and thanked Him and mentioned death, ‘O Allah’s slaves! There is no escaping from death. If you stand in its path, it will take you, and if you run away from it, it will still take you. So seek safety fast, for there is a vigorous seeker pursuing you: the grave. Beware of its smallness, darkness and aloneness. Verily, the grave is either a hole of the Fire or a garden in Paradise. Verily, the grave speaks thrice each day and proclaims, ‘I am the house of darkness. I am the house of worms. I am the house of aloneness.’ Verily, what comes after that is a Day in which the baby gets white hairs and the adolescent becomes drunk.”
