Subject : Story Death :::

Ini email gua jumpa dicelah-celah 'almari' lama gua...
renungkanlah... (disimpan semenjak tahun 1984)

This is the tale of an average man,
Who acts contrary to Allah's plan,
If you are reflected herein,
Then repent! And commit no sin.

It was early in the morning at four,
When death knock upon a bedroom door,
"Who is there?' the sleeping one cried,
"I'm Izrael, let me inside"

At once the man began to shiver,
As one swearing in deadly fever,
He shouted to his sleeping wife,
"Don't let him take away my life!!"

"Please go away, oh Angel of Death!
Leave me alone, I'm not ready yet,
My family on me depend,
Give me a chance, oh please perpend!"

The angel knock again and again,
"Friend, I'll take your life without a pain,
It is your soul that Allah require,
I come not with my own desire."

Bewildered, the man began to cry,
"Oh angel, I'm so afraid to die,
I'll give you gold, and be your slave,
Don't send me to the unlit grave."

"Let me in, Oh friend" the angel said,
"Open the door, get up from your bed,
If you not allow me in,
I'll walk through it like a Jinn."

The man held a gun in his right hand,
Ready to defy the angel stand,
"I'll point my gun toward your head,
You dare come in I'll shoot you dead!"

By now the angel was in the room,
Saying, "Oh friend!, Prepare for your doom,
Foolish man, Angel never die,
Put down your gun and do not sigh."

"Why you afraid!. Tell me Oh man,
To die according to Allah's plan?,
Come smile at me, do not grim,
Be happy to return to Him."

"Oh angel, I bow my head in shame,
I had no time to take Allah's name,
From morning till dusk, I made my wealth,
Never even caring for my health"

"Allah's command I never obey,
Nor five times a day, I never prayed,
A Ramadhan came and Ramadhan went,
But no time had I to repent"

"The Haj was already Fard for me,
But I would not part with my money,
All charities, I did ignore,
Taking usury more and more"

"Sometimes I sipped my favorite wine,
With flirting women I sat to dine,
Oh Angel I appeal to you,
Spare my life for a year or two."

"The laws of Quran I'll obey,
I'll begin to solat this everyday,
My fast and Haj, I'll complete,
And keep away from self-conciet."

"I'll refrain from usury,
And give all wealth from charity,
Wine and wenches I will detest,
Allah's Oneness I'll Attest."

"We angels do Allah demands,
We cannot do against His demand,
Death is ordained for everyone,
Father, mother, daughter or son."

"I'm afraid, this moment is your last,
Now be reminded, more of your past,
I do understand of your fears,
But it's now too late for tears."

"You lived in this world two score more,
Never you did your people adore,
Your parents, you did not obey,
Hungry beggars you turned away."

"You two ill-gotten female offsprings,
In nightclubs, for livelihood they sing,
Instead of making more Muslims,
You make your children non-Muslims!"

"You ignore the Muazzin Adzan,
Nor did you read the holy Quran,
Breaking promises all your life,
Backbitting friends, and causing strife."

"From hoarded goods, great profit you made,
And your poor workers you underpaid,
Horses and cards were leisure,
Money-making is your pleasure."

"You ate vitamins, and grew more fat,
With the very sick you never sat,
A pint of blood, you never gave,
Which could the little baby save."

"Oh human, you have done enough wrong,
You brought good properties for a song,
When the farmers appealed to you,
You did not have a mercy, it's true."

"Paradise for you? I cannot tell,
Undoubtedly you will dwell in hell,
There's no time for you to repent,
I'll take your soul, for which I'm sent."

The ending, however, is very sad,
Eventually the man became mad,
With a cry he jumped out of bed,
And sunddenly he fell down dead.
