Are U prepared for Death ?

Posted on: May 25, 2011

In The name of Allah,The Most Merciful,The Most gracious

Are U prepared for Death ?

Life slips away second by second. Are you aware that every day brings you closer to death or that death is as close to you as it is to other people? As we are told in the verse  

Whatsoever is on it (the earth) will perish. And the Face of your Lord full of Majesty and Honour will remain forever” [al-Rahmaan 55:26-27]

“Every soul shall taste death in the end; to Us shall you be brought back.” (Surat al-‘Ankabut: 57)

everyone who has ever appeared on this earth was destined to die. Without exception they all died, every one. Today, we hardly come across the traces of many of these people who passed away. Those currently living and those who will ever live will also face death on a predestined day. Despite this fact, people tend to see death as an
unlikely incident.

Think of a baby who has just opened its eyes to the world and a man who is about to breathe his last. Both had no influence on their individual birth or death whatsoever. Only God possesses the power to inspire the breath of life or to take it away.

All human beings will live until a certain day and then die; God in the Qur’an gives an account of the attitude commonly shown towards death in the following verse:

Say: “The death from which you flee will truly overtake you: then you will be sent back to the Knower of things secret and open: and He will tell you (the truth of) the things that you did!” (Surat al- Jumu’ah: 8) 

The majority of people avoid thinking about death. In the rapid flow of daily events, a person usually occupies himself with totally different subjects: what college to enroll in, which company to work for, what color of clothing to wear next morning, what to cook for supper; these are the kinds of major issues that we usually consider. Life is perceived as a routine process of such minor matters. Attempts to talk about death are always interrupted by those who do
not feel comfortable hearing about it. Assuming death will come only when one grows older, one does not want to concern himself with such an unpleasant subject. Yet it should be kept in mind that living for even one further hour is never guaranteed. Everyday, man witnesses the deaths of people around him but thinks little about the day when others will witness his own death. He never supposes that such an end is awaiting him!

Nevertheless, when death comes to man, all the “realities” of life suddenly vanish. No reminder of the “good old days” endures in this world. Think of everything that you are able to do right now: you can blink your eyes, move your body, speak, laugh; all these are functions of your body. Now think about the state and shape your body will assume after your death.

While all this is taking place in the world, the corpse under the soil will go through a rapid process of decay. Skin and soft tissues will completely disintegrate. The brain will decay and start looking like clay. This process will go on until the whole body is reduced to a skeleton.

However, our beloved prophet, Muhammad (PBUH), was reported to have said that the dead body of prophets, pious people and martyrs would not decay in the grave and that there is enjoyment in the grave just as there is punishment in it.

There is no chance of going back to the old life again. Gathering around the supper table with family members, socializing or to having an honorable job will never again be possible.

In short, the “heap of flesh and bones” to which we assign an identity faces a quite nasty end. On the other hand, you – or rather, your soul – will leave this body as soon as you breathe your last. The remainder of you – your body – will become part of the soil.

Yes, but what is the reason for all these things happening? If God willed, the body would never have decayed in such a way. That it does so actually carries a very important inner message in itself.

The tremendous end awaiting man should make him acknowledge that he is not a body himself, but a soul “encased” within a body. In other words, man has to acknowledge that he has an existence beyond his body. Furthermore, man should understand the death of his body, which he tries to possess as if he is to remain eternally in this temporal world. However this body, which he deems so important, will decay and become worm-eaten one day and finally be reduced to a skeleton. That day might be very soon.

Despite all these facts, man’s mental process is inclined to disregard what he does not like or want. He is even inclined to deny the existence of things he avoids confronting. This tendency seems to be most apparent when death is the issue. Only a funeral or the sudden death of an immediate family member brings this reality to mind. Almost everybody sees death far from himself. The assumption is that those who die while sleeping or in an accident are different people and what they face will never befall us! Everybody thinks it is too early to die and that there are always years ahead to live.

Yet most probably, people who die on the way to school or hurrying to attend a business meeting shared the same thought. They probably never thought that the next day’s newspapers would publish news of their deaths. It is entirely possible that, as you read these lines, you still do not expect to die soon after you have finished them or
even entertain the possibility that it might happen. Probably you feel that it is too early to die because there are many things to accomplish. However, this is just an avoidance of death and these are only vain endeavors to escape it:

Say: “Running away will not profit you if you are running away from death or slaughter; and even if (you do escape), no more than a brief (respite) will you be allowed to enjoy!”(Surat al-Ahzab: 16) 

Man who is created alone should be aware that he would also die alone. Yet during his life, he lives almost addicted to possessions. His sole purpose in life becomes to possess more. Yet, no one can take his goods with him to the grave. The body is buried wrapped in a shroud made from the cheapest of fabrics. The body comes into this world alone and departs from it in the same way…

According to the hadeeth of ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her), the wife of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to pray in his salaah (prayer),

“O Allaah, I seek refuge in You from the torment of the grave, I seek refuge in You from the tribulation of the Dajjaal, I seek refuge in You from the trials of life and death, O Allaah, I seek refuge in You from sin and loss).”

(Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 798; Muslim, 589)

dead is inevitable, may we die as muslims…


After reading this article, i wonder if the powerful elite in our Islamic Republic of Pakistan really fears death or just believes in more and more brutalities????? Let me share with you a poem about my poor country with rich rulers!!!!!!!

The Kakul Syndrome

(for the silent revolution in Pakistan)

By Habib Sulemani

God Almighty! Generals fake
They’ve put country at stake
Generals mean personal gain
The armed forces’re in pain!

Generals’re bloody fool
Take a bath an’ be cool!

Military men’re public servants
Not masters from the heavens!
But they’re arrogant an’ cruel
Don’t care for common people

Generals’re bloody fool
Take a bath an’ be cool!

You own huge firms an’ agriland
Turning country into terrorland!
No-one among you bothers at all
Where the terrified people stand!

Suffering from the Kakul Syndrome
You’re always out—even if at home
By providing terrorists sanctuary
You’ve failed to protect country

Still you behave like intellectuals
Not men behind petty squabbles!
You’ve lost every single battle
Yet foolishly believe: you rattle!

Generals’re bloody fool
Take a bath an’ be cool!

After failure on geographical borders
You champion ideological frontiers
It’s easy to fight on ambiguous front
Cos you like a lavish bedroom stint!

Using a pawn religious leader
Or an ISI-paid TV anchor
You can make storm in teacup
Change system—down to up!

The generals’ve taken refuge
In ideological war an’ abuse!
Don’t try to fool world anymore!
Don’t you see outside an uproar?

Generals’re bloody fool
Take a bath an’ be cool!

See the writing on the wall
Only you’re sick not we all
The military is vanguard
Of a scary fanatic world!
The nation wants to know your aim
You’ve multiplied the double game!

You’re soldiers or businessmen?
Playing tricks on the politician!
You didn’t defend country borders
With broken oath, you’re traitors!

There is no escape from the law
Dug earth with your filthy paw!
You can’t deceive the tax payers
God has heard people’s prayers!

You’ve lied to the nation
Not once, again an’ again
You’ve neither mind nor a soul
An’ you’re always playing foul!

Generals’re bloody fool
Take a bath an’ be cool!

It’s time to take a dose of wisdom!
Stop violation of our basic freedom
Respect democracy at home
Or face the doom an’ gloom!




I’m Muslim and I can say this that ever since my grandpa died I have always hated death and I know its part of life but I hate it. I’m scared of dying and I’m scared if I’m going to Heaven or Hell. I always think about where I’m going and it gets me scared. I’m scaredd! I just hate death and I’m scared. Is that bad to say?


yeah.its bad to say. but if u r performing tasks what ALLAH and his PROPHET S.W assigned us, then u will surely not afraid of death.


I’m Muslim and ever since my grandpa died. I got scared. I’m scared of death and dying. I fear so much of it. I get scared thinking abut if I’m going to heaven or hell. These things scare me so much. No matter if Its part of life. I still get scared and I hate death. Is that wrong for me to say?!
