We are from God and to God do we return...

2:260 (Asad) And, lo, Abraham said: "O my Sustainer! Show me how Thou givest life unto the dead!" Said He: "Hast thou, then, no faith?" (Abraham) answered: "Yea, but [let me see it] so that my heart may be set fully at rest." Said He: "Take, then, four birds and teach them to obey thee; [256] . then place them separately on every hill [around thee]; then summon them: they will come flying to thee. And know that God is almighty, wise." [257]

Our souls are like birds flying to their masters:
Freeing the Doves-Dhikr Salawat:

Allatheena itha asabathum museebatun qaloo inna lillahi wainna ilayhi rajiAAoona

  • 2:156 (Asad) who, when calamity befalls them, say, "Verily, unto God do we belong and, verily, unto Him we shall return." (we are returning)
