Allah is the best of planners

Salam-Alaykum,
My grandmother passed away here in the early hours of Sun morning. Janazah will Inshallah be today. Been busy at the home of the deceased and I dont get back till late at night. Yesterday was the first time I checked mail since sat morning as well.

Some Ahaedeeth from Riyadu Saliheen
574. Ibn 'Umar said, "The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, took me by the shoulder and said, 'Be in this world as if you were a stranger or a traveller on the road."
Ibn 'Umar used to say, "In the evening, do not anticipate the morning, and in the morning do not anticipate the evening. Take from your health for your illness and from your life for your death." [al-Bukhari]

577. Ibn Mas'ud said, "The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, drew lines making a square and then drew a line in the middle which extended beyond it. He drew some small lines up to this middle line from the side within the square and said, 'This is man, and this is end of his lifespan which encircles him - or by which he is encircled - and this which goes beyond it is his hope and these small lines are things that happen. If this one misses him, that one gets him, and if that one misses him, this one gets him.'" [al-Bukhari] This is its form:

579. Abu Hurayra reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Remember frequently the thing that cuts off pleasures," i.e. death." [at-Tirmidhi]

I have updated the Realplayer Islamic talk, please do listen to it and leave feedback stating so.
Please make dua for maghfirat for all the muslims who have passed away.
