PREPARING FOR DEATH
The Beginning of the End
Watch on YouTube:
We need to remember Death.
As Prophet ﷺ said
أكثروا من هادم اللذات
Remember often the destroyer of pleasures. (i.e death)
[Sunan Ibn Mājah 4258]
Why do we forget death?
It is the Harsh truth to the beautiful lie we indulge in!
But we do not prepare for it, we do not think about it and make use of our time in the path of Allah ﷻ!
And this is why we fear and hate Death.
We Hate Death because of its Suddenness, its haste!
We lose our lives, our wealth and everything comes to an end!
Then it is the wait for the beginning of Qiyamah.
We must prepare!
Because as Allah ﷻ says
إِنَّ لِلمَتَّقِينَ مَفَازًا
Surely for the righteous is an attainment.
So don’t wait for Death to repent! Wallah! This is not how it will go!
You will have an ending according to how you lived your life!
If you lived a life void of obedience, repentance and worship which was full of sin!
How can you expect the Shahadah to flow off your lips?
Or the Angel of Death to come and take your soul in a gentle way?
But then imagine if you lived a life of obedience and worship!
The Shahadah will flow off your lips with ease.
The Angel of Death will come bearing glad tidings!
And this WILL happen.
You can’t avoid it!
As Allah ﷻ says
قُلْ إِنَّ الْمَوْتَ الَّذِي تَفِرُّونَ مِنْهُ فَإِنَّهُ مُلَاقِيكُمْ ثُمَّ تُرَدُّونَ
Say “Verily, the death from which you flee will surely meet you, then you will be sent back,
Death comes without warning!
Don’t wait for it!
You’ll regret it!
