chattels

three things escort a man up until the journey transits into another chapter;
beginning from the moment he breathes his first breath,
the demoting journey of his burial
and the journey to the hereafter.

what follows until the very last breath, is his belongings in the world.
then what follows until he sits in the grave is the family
and what follow until hereafter are his deeds.

(Mukashafah al-Qulub, Imam al-Ghazali)
