Eventually We All Go Home

My brother texted me this morning to inform me that guitar legend Allan Holdsworth had passed. I grew up listening to Holdsworth, one of the influences on my brother’s playing. Later I queued up Holdsworth’s Metal Fatigue, the track entitled Home. It reminded me of that ultimate reality we Muslims remind ourselves regularly:

إنا لله وإنا إليه راجعون

“To God we belong and to God we are returning.”

In other words, we all go home at some point.
