Week 16 – Question of the Week
Why do we fear death?
One driving along a road may be feeling (anxious or) fear due to reasons such as not having enough fuel, carrying illegal materials, or more passengers than that which is allowed, speeding, losing the way (or maybe even losing the GPS signal), or not having anything prepared at the destination, or having uncomfortable companions.
If during one’s life, the necessary provisions are collected, actions opposing Divine Laws are not done, is prepared for the journey to the Hereafter and knows the directions, with the ultimate destination in mind, and with righteous companions, acting in accordance to the Divine Laws, such a person will not have any worries or concerns.
