6 Pakistanis, Including 4 of a Family, Killed in UAE Villa Fire

Whoever has Come into this World has to Die one Day

Every human being who came in this world has to die and a day comes in all of our lives which takes us back from this world. We don’t know when we will die, how our lives will be ended, in what shape, what manner.

Keeping this in view, we always pray that since we have to die, therefore, our end must be a happy ending instead of a tragic end. We always pray that the soul must leave our bodies in an easy manner instead of feeling any sort of difficulty.
