The Day I Witnessed an Accident

Assalamualaikum, hi! 

Excuse the hiatus. It's been months since the last update. I'm alive and still kicking. Safe and sound Alhamdulillah. This will be a brief post I hope. And it's about what had just happened this afternoon.

Friday about 12.00 pm - April 13th, 2012.

I've been waiting for a cab under the hot, bright sun. The taxi stand or bus stand are no where to be seen. I feel the temperature was rising. I kind of tired. Hungry too. Almost 20 minutes had passed and there's no sign of getting a cab. So I've decided to move to the opposite side of the road as I see it has higher chance and greater potential to hail a taxi. After reasonable 2-3 minutes later, I saw a taxi passing through the road that I had just left. It made me disappointed and depressed at the same time. Little that I know it's for my own good.

It all happened so fast that it was difficult to know what really caused it. For the very first time in my life, I witnessed an accident involving three cars. One of them was the taxi that I just saw. The taxi spin and hit the divider. The place that I stand before. The second car hit the third car before hitting the light pole. Somehow this reminds me of the time when I just started my practical life. It was the time when I was driving and got in an accident. All my life, I can never forget that day. 

I thank Allah for this life. I can never thank enough for all the protection and blessing in life. I don't know what will happen if and only if Allah let me stay at the place where the accident occurred, or if I get into the taxi that got into the accident. I don't know, only Allah knows. I ask Allah to make us among those who spend their whole life striving hard for His religion. May Allah bless us all.

And this life of the world is only amusement and play! Verily, the home of the Hereafter, that is the life indeed (the eternal life that will never end), if they but knew. [Surah al-'Ankabut, 29: 64].
