With previous family deaths, my sister kind of shut them out but something broke inside her this time around... she became obsessed with searching the topic of life and death in religion. We had hours of discussion as a family because she had so many questions, what is the purpose of life when you go through so many trials and people you bond with die? What is the process of death? Are we set up to fail? What is the purpose of the dua when at times you pray so sincerely but it is not accepted? (This question came up because both when my nani ami got sick, she prayed so much for her to get better but it wasn't meant to be, same with my dadi ami) And if the prophet himself was scared about death, how does a normal human feel when they are nowhere perfect? How alone or scared must human feel.
For a moment, I thought it wouldn't be so bad if there is nothing after death, you just cease to exist but then it makes no sense. What about people who commit such atrocities in life and hurt innocent people... surely they have to be accounted for their actions.
One particular thing she brought up was that humans have several options every time they make a decision and based on that decision, one's life alters path. (Speaking from religious pov). It made me wonder how many mistakes I have made in life and what kind of life would I have had, if I had made different decisions. Because at times, I have made a seemingly minor decision in life but after carrying it out, I have felt very restless like I was making a major mistake. This also brings me to this quantum theory which basically states that there are infinite parallel universes, each universe is replica of this one but they differ by each different decision you make in a day. Interesting to think about.0 Likes, 0 Dislikes
