Constantly Remembering Death

 

Ibrahim Taimi (Rahmatullah alaih) says; “Two things have caused me to turn away from sensual pleasures of the world; death and the fear of reckoning before Allah Ta'ala.”  Hadhrat Ka'b (Radhiallahu Anhu) says: “He who realizes what death signifies will find that, by comparison, all the sufferings of this world are easier to tolerate.”  Ash'ath (Rahmatullah Alaih)says: "Whenever we visited Hasan Basri (Rahmatullah Alaih)and sat with him, we heard him talking to his companions of death and of the conditions and events of the Aakhirah. (Fazaail Sadaqaat-Urdu-633)

Whose janaazah is this?

 

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

We should, at all times, remember that our life is coming to an end. We have also heard our elders say that a person should take stock of his life when going to sleep. He should ponder and reflect over the number of things he will be able to take with him when he passes away and the number of things he will be forced to leave behind. Constantly remember death! Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is reported to have said in the mubaarak Hadith, “Remember the thing which severs all pleasures of life, death.” Once a janaazah was passing by when somebody asked a pious person present, “Whose janaazah is this?” The pious person replied, “It is your janaazah.” When the person expressed surprise at this answer, the pious person said, “If it is not yours, then regard it to be mine.” (Merely being concerned about whose janaazah it is, is insufficient. What matters is whether one is prepared for that moment to be the moment of one’s own janaazah.) (Suhbate Ba Awliyaa’ page.152)

Habib Ajami (Rahmatullahi Alaih) on his Deathbed

 

It is mentioned regarding Sheikh Habib Ajami (Rahmatullahi Alaih) who is one of the renowned spiritual leaders, that he looked gravely concerned at the time of his death. Someone said to him, “It is strange that a pious person like yourself should feel so afraid at the hour of death. We have never seen you in such a state prior to this.” The Sheikh replied, “The journey (to the Hereafter) is extremely far and I do not have sufficient provisions for the journey. Neither do I have knowledge of the way as I have not traversed it before. I will soon be meeting my Lord and Sustainer, the Master of my soul, who prior to this I have not met. I shall have to see such horrible spectacles as I have never seen before. I shall be laid in the grave under the ground and be there till the day of Qiyaamah, all alone, without any friend or comforter. I shall then be required to appear before Allah Ta’ala  for reckoning and, if I am asked and told, O Habib, present one 'Subhaan-Allah' which you have done solely for Allah Ta’ala untarnished by the evil influence of Shaytaan during the sixty years of life in this world, what answer would I have to present? I fear that I may not be able to produce even one 'Subhaan-Allah' free from the influence of the Dunya.” (Fazaail Sadaqaat-urdu 671)

Preparing for the True Abode

 

Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

The period of time which people live in the world is extremely short in comparison to the period of time for which they will remain buried beneath the surface of the earth. Accordingly one should understand that man’s lifespan in this world compared to the Hereafter is extremely short and brief. After your demise, the various stages through which you will pass, such as the stage in the grave until the first sounding of the trumpet, the stage from the first sounding of the trumpet until the second, the thousands of years that will be spent on the plains of resurrection and finally residing in whichever abode Allah Ta’ala chooses for you in the hereafter – all these stages are hundreds of thousands of times longer than the brief period for which you live in the world. How can man remain so negligent and unconcerned of his true abode? He makes such effort for the few days he will spend in the world but fails to work and make adequate preparations for the eternal life of the Hereafter! (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 21) - Ihyauddeen.co.za

"When someone dies, the angels ask about what he sent ahead of him (To the Hereafter)

and the children of Adam (i.e. people) ask about what he left behind him"

It was said to the Tabi'ee Salmah bin Dinar

 

"Why do we hate death"

 

He said "Because you have built this world, and ruined the Aakhira. You hate to leave that which you have built to what you have ruined"

 

‏قيل للتابعي سلمة بن دينار : ما لنا نكره الموت ؟!قال: " لأنكم عمرتم الدنيا، وخربتم الآخرة، فأنتم تكرهون أن تنقلوا من العمران إلى الخراب " .

Life is short

 

The Angel of Death came to Nooh and said: O longest-lived of the Prophets, how did you find this world and its pleasures?

 

He said: Like a man who entered a room with two doors, and he stood in the middle of the room for a brief moment, then he went out of the other door.

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

 

Why do we not find the time to regularly engage in zikr and ‘ibaadah, whereas it is these actions that will truly benefit us after our death? We are all aware that our life in this world is extremely short and can be likened to a dream. When a person has a dream, he sees many things, yet upon awakening, he finds that everything has disappeared and he realises that what he saw was nothing but a dream. Similarly, when a person passes away, he finds that everything of the world has disappeared and only good actions remain. Hence, if righteous actions are not carried out during one’s lifetime, the life after death will be nothing but misery and destruction.

 

(Suhbat Baa Awliyaa pg. 205)
