A Better Place

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
Mikaeel Jackson left us.
I am tearing as I heard the news. I’ve always had a soft spot for him. I never found him weird, never called him Wacko Jacko, I just always thought he was a really sweet person being attacked by the media.
I teared when I heard about his reversion to Islam. And right now I’m tearing thinking again about it. He said his shahadah pretty recently, which means all the sins that he may have done before were all gone. MasyaAllah.. And how much sin could he possibly have made after making shahada? Not much right? I mean, considering how a sin is considered a sin only if you knew it was a sin. For a new muallaf like him, he was probably still learning and a lot of things would not be counted against him.
And what about us? What if we were to die now? Mikaeel Jackson would surpass us in good deeds while we surpass him in evil deeds. :(
MasyaAllah.. May his grave be illuminated with light. May he get the peace and rest he so rightly deserves, something he never got while he was here in this wretched dunya.
And he passed on on a Thursday, and in Allah’s month of Rajab. :)) Inna lillah wa inna ilayhi raji’un.
Al-Fatiha for Mikaeel Jackson.
