Before reading this piece of reading one should understand the meaning on the word “INTIQAL” which is derived from the word “Naqal” which means To SHIFT. When a person dies, we use the word INTIQAAL, this means one has been shifted/ died etc.
18th April, 2008 a man died, people cried, shouted and had tears in their eyes. They all lost their appetite. They were not able to sleep well, to eat well, to work well, seemed like everything has misplaced its connotation and significance. There was a surge of despair. It was never like it before.
An unexpected loss of a person from a family makes us all upset. We all feel alone, in different ways. He was a dad for his children, a husband for his wife, a son for his parents and a well wisher for his friends. People have memories with him. Now he is no more! This is our perception about death, and there is no life after death, we think and feel.
I take this differently which is in other words, very positive.
There is another world. We have another life, which we can’t see while living in this one. There people nap, they eat, they have homes and families (of course same which they had before) and pretty much everything. The point is that we can’t see this, because we are in a different world. To see the world of invisibles, we have to be dead and convert.
Instead of crying and mourning, the concept should be taken differently. There is a 2ndworld, similar to this world. But few things are different. Here we work, we go to school, and we have jobs. We enjoy. There we have to live life and wait. It’s not that one is dead and is gone. It’s that his first stage has passed and now he is in the concluding stage.
Why do people howl? This world is not a great place. We have so many problems here. We have to struggle and most of the times we are not rewarded for what we do. We have corruption, we have diseases, and we have so many other different problems which we can’t even think about. People are selfish, we have AIDS, and Cancer people are dying from. We have so many other diseases which we can’t treat.
I wonder what is good about this life that people don’t want to die and want to live and enjoy. It should be taken that one is gone in a better place. One should do good deeds and everything is good.
Most of the time crying, mourning, howling, and depression and so much more is observed in people who have lost their loved ones. It’s not that we should get happy for this, but somewhere in your mind there should be the feeling of calmness that my loved one is at a better place.
