Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned the following:
My beloved friends! After one passes away, people will no longer think of him and remember him. Even one’s immediate family, wife, children, brothers and sisters will all forget about him. Perhaps on some occasions, certain people will remember him and convey reward for him. Hence, this life which Allah Ta‘ala has blessed you with is indeed very precious. You should value this life and make the best preparations for your Aakhirah while you can.
