Let this beautiful Invocation / Dua " دُعا " define our remaining days in this world

I have been sharing many invocations / Duas " دُعا "  from various surahs of the Qur'an shared in our series of posts on our reference page: Selected Invocations / Dua " دُعا " from the Qur'an. Each one of these invocations are heart moving if one recites these from the sincerity of depths of one's heart.  Continuing my effort to provide beautifully worded invocations from Qur'an, Sunnah and even by other sources, today I share a invocation that would rally move you and you would never forget to recite it at least once daily:

اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْ خَيْرَ عُمْرِي آخِرَهُ ، وَخَيْرَ عَمَلِي خَوَاتِمَهُ ، وَخَيْرَ أَيَّامِي يَوْمَ أَلْقَاكَ 
"Oh Allah, make the best part of my life the end of it. And make the best of my deeds my final actions. And make the best of my days be the Day in which I get to meet You" 

Please concentrate each word of this invocation, and you will find your heart flowing with your lips as you recite it, provided you recite it from the depths of your heart and total sincerity.  What a beautiful day that would be if we die reciting this Dua. What better day it would be if we were doing a deed that pleases Allah. What better day to die the day Allah is pleased with us. And what a blessed day it would be when we meet our Creator with a heavy load in our right hand and none in our left hand.

Such blessed day could happen if our entire remaining life is lived as per dictates of Qur'an and Sunnah. Form now on  let us make a pledge to be respectful to our parents and elders and be loveable by our children. If our parents are no more, let us pray for their forgiveness and make charities on their behalf so that Allah forgives them. Let us rear our children as per the role model based on commandments of Allah and Sunnah. Let our children be a source of prayers for us when we are no more. Let our children be praying for us when we would be long forgotten by others.
May Allāh (سبحانه و تعالى‎) help us understand Qur'ān and help us to act upon the commandments of Allah contained therein. May Allah help us to be like the ones He loves and let our lives be lived helping others and not making others life miserable or unlivable. May all our wrong doings, whether intentional or unintentional, be forgiven before the angel of death knocks on our door. 
May Allah forgive me if my posts ever imply a piety far greater than I possess. I am most in need of guidance.

Reading the Qur'ān should be a daily obligation of a Muslim - Reading it with translation will make it meaningful. But reading its Exegesis / Tafsir will make you understand it fully.

An effort has been made to gather explanation / exegesis of the surahs of the Qur'ān from authentic sources and then present a least possible condensed explanation of the surah. In that the exegesis of the chapters of the Quran is mainly based on the "Tafhim al-Qur'an - The Meaning of the Qur'an" by one of the most enlightened scholars of the Muslim World Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi.  

In order to augment and add more explanation as already provided, additional input has been interjected from following sources: 
  • Towards Understanding the Quran
  • Tafsir Ibn Khatir
  • Muhammad Asad Translation
  • Javed Ahmad Ghamidi / Al Mawrid
  • Al-Quran, Yusuf Ali Translation
  • Verse by Verse Qur'an Study Circle
In addition the references of  other sources which have been explored have also been given above. Those desirous of detailed explanations and tafsir (exegesis), may refer to these sites.
