Life is short, my friend - this is how we all will end

Chammünster, Karner, Church



We believe that this life is very short in comparison to our after life which is forever. In Arabic this life is the Dunyah, while the afterlife is the Akhirah and paradise is Jannah. I found a nice saying:
"Imagine that you are a ship and the Dunyah is the ocean. You need the ocean in order to stay afloat, but do not let too much water enter the ship otherwise you will sink. The wind will allow the ship to sail and the wind is striving for the Akhirah and is our purpose and setting directions using the mast in life helps us to attain Jannah."
