The Friday khutbah reminded me that we all start with Allah and end with Allah.

When a baby was born, the beginning to the azan or iqamah to the ears was:


الله اكبر الله اكبر

which starts with the word الله

And as the person dies, the final words to utter would be:


لا اله الا الله

which ends with the word الله

Four ways to get back on track:
1) Taubat, repent and repent, again and again
2) Find halal rizq, feed your kids from halal sources
3) Fulfill obligations (prayer, zakat, fast, hajj, etc)
4) Zikrullah, remember Allah at all time
