Islamic Thought: Life & Death

I came across this some time ago (Amr khalid lesson) and i thought it to be an interesting way of looking at life from an islamic point of view...

As muslims, at birth (beginning of a life) it is a SUNA (a doing of the Prophet) to perform the Azan (call for prayer) in the ears of the newly born.

At death, people perform a prayer for the deceased.

These two actions at start and end of a muslim's life are like a message to us...
It is as if God is telling us a message that: " Your lives in this world are as short (compared to the after-life) as the time between doing an Azan and performing the prayer that comes just after it".

Note: In Islam, to pray... we first do an Azan (call for prayer) and then shortly after it perform the Prayer.
