The Fear of Death...


Recommended Posts

As-Salaam alaikum,

 The Noble Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, asked Malakul Maut, "Do you not have an envoy (messenger) whom you may send before you present yourself [to a person], so that the people may be forewarned?"

So the angel of death said: "By Allah, I have many such envoys, such as causes, sickness, old-age and deficiency in hearing and seeing. Now when people do not pay attention to all of this, then my envoys will not go on coming. Now, I come personally and after me no envoy will come".

Related to this, the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said: "IF a person reaches the age of sixty, Allah has left him no excuse [for wrong actions in life]."
