Bayan of Last Breath:
Last breath meaning hold anything tightly and pull towards your side which mean soul out of body. Everything who came into this world it will go back on the time of death which is called death. The one who came in the world he or she will go back to Allah on the death time. Life is going to end day by day. Hazrat Syed-e-Na Mansoor Bin Ammar advised to a youngster your young age is all about bluff and many youngsters did Tobba (Abjure) very late and this delay caused send them into grave.
Prophet PBUH said: Remember your death every time. In one Hadith, the one who remember his death in 20 times a day Allah will get him Up from Shaheeds (Martyr) on Day of Judgment.
It is narrated from Syed Ibn-e-Umro One Ansari came to Prophet PBUH and ask who is more intelligent. Prophet PBUH replied: The one who remember his death more and prepare himself in good ways (e.g. Pray, Roza Hajj, Zakat).
So we should also always remember our death and get ready for the judgment day. Do tobba (Abjure) and promise to yourself that I will not do Sins in my next life.
