I can prepare you for burial but I cannot guarantee you'll go to heaven


مغسل و ضامن جنه

Meghassel we damen gannah

Translation: I can prepare you for burial but I cannot guarantee you'll go to heaven

Meaning: I can help you with some things, but you are responsible for your own life and choices. Similarly, an undertaker can prepare you for burial, but whether or not you go to heaven is dependant on the decisions you made in life.
