Deep. Like 6 foot deep.

"Dust is my bed
embracing me,
and is my cover.

The sands are around me,
engulfing me from all directions.

And the tomb recounts [the story of]
the darkness of my calamity.

And the light has destined that my pleasure is
in meeting [Allah]..."

I had been listening to this Nasheed (song) for years. Never knew what it meant. Just thought it sounded deep (and soothing). The subtitles here confirm. The video ain't too bad either. Watch it. All of it. Be patient.
