Where are we in this course?

yesterday Michael Jackson passed away and shocked millions of his fans, they all said pretty much the same thing that we had lost a genius performer the world have ever seen. If it is true that Michael's last religion is Islam and he died as a Muslim, I pray for him and may Allah have mercy on his soul. People die each and everyday whether they are ready or not, infant or toddler, teenager or adult, we cannot escape death. The problem is, are we 100% sure what's going to happen at the day we're going to die? how and when is it going to happen are in the hands of Allah.
I am amazed by the efforts done by the converted Muslim in the western secular country rather than a Muslim born in a Muslim country. It's time for us to take action, not taking for granted that being a Muslim in a Muslim country is enough. We are made into our comfort zones so that we fall asleep. I cannot do this on my own, so let's pull ourselves together and make a change starting from ourselves, our families, neighbors, friends and community. A small effort to awaken Muslim community will soon end up a Muslim country, and these Muslim countries will end up a Muslim world. How nice! but I know it's hard to do it, because if it's easy it has been done long time ago. There will always be resistance to the truth.
