This is Duniya Brother & Sister Read it

"This is a story of a man walking

in the jungle. A roaring lion ran
towards him, and the man ran as
fast as he could to escape from it.
He noticed a well in front of him
and he jumped inside hoping to
escape from the lion.
As he was falling inside the well,
he grabbed onto the rope and
saved himself. The man was so
relieved but when he looked
down he saw a big snake at the
bottom of the well. It had its jaws
wide open ready to swallow him
up.
The man then looked up and saw
two mice nibbling at the rope. A
black mouse and a white were
both chewing into the rope. The
scary lion was still prowling
outside the well.
The man’s heart was pounding as
he wondered how he could
escape from this. Then he noticed
a honeycomb in front of him
which had delicious honey
dripping from it. He stuck his
finger into the honey and put it
inside his mouth. It was delicious
and for a moment he forgot
about the lion, the snake and the
two mice chewing at the rope.
Imam al-Ghazali explained that
the lion is like the angel of death
which is always looming above
us. The snake was like his grave
which all humans will face. The
black mouse and white mouse
were like the day and night which
are always nibbling at our life
(the rope). The honey was like
this dunya which with its
momentary sweetness makes us
forget the death and the eternal
life."
