It shall be like a trip to another country.
Where details of that country won't be found in glamorous travel brochures, but in the holy Quran and Hadith.
Where our plane won't be British Airways, Gulf Air or Emirates, but Air Janaazah.
Where our luggage won't be allowed 30kg, but our deeds, no matter how heavy they weigh.
You don't pay for excess luggage, they are carried free of charge, with compliments from our Creator.
Where our dress won't be Pierre Cardin or the like, but the white cotton shroud.
Where our perfume won't be Chanel or Paco Rabanne, but camphor and attar.
Where our passport won't be Indian, British or South African, but Al-Islam.
Where our visas won't be six months leave to stay or else, but Laa Ilaaha Illalah.
Where our air hostess won't be gorgeous female, but his name is Isra-eel.
Where the in flight service won't be 1st class or economy, but a piece of beautiful scented or foul smelling cloth.
Where our destination won't be Heathrow, Jeddah International, but the last terminal graveyard.
Where our waiting lounge won't be nice carpeted and air-conditioned rooms, but the six feet deep gloomy qabr.
Where the immigration officer won't be his Majesty's officers but Munkar & Nakeer.
They only check out whether you deserve the place you yearn to go.
Where there is no need for customs officers or detectors.
Where the transit airport will be Al-Barzakh.
Where our final place of destination will either be the garden under which river flow or the Hellfire.
