65. Chapter: On remembering death and constraining expectation
Allah Almighty says, “Every self will taste death. You will be paid
your wages in full on the Day of Rising. Anyone who is distanced from
the Fire and admitted to the Garden, has triumphed. The life of this
world is only the enjoyment of delusion,” (3:185)
And the Almighty says, “No self knows what it will earn tomorrow and no self knows in what land it will die.” (W31:33; H31:34)
The Almighty says, “When their specified time arrives, they cannot
delay it for a single hour nor can they bring it forward,” (16:61)
And the Almighty says, “O you who believe! Do not let your wealth or
children divert you from the remembrance of Allah. Whoever does that is
lost. Give from what We have provided for you before death comes to one
of you and he says, ‘O Lord, if only you would give me a little more
time so that I can give sadaqa and be one of the righteous.’ Allah will
not give anyone more time, once their time has come. Allah is aware of
everything you do.” (63:9-11)
The Almighty says, “Until, when death comes to one of them, he says,
‘My Lord, send me back again. so that perhaps I may act rightly
regarding the things I failed to do!’ No indeed! It is just words he
utters. Before them there is an interspace until the day they are raised
up. Then when the Trumpet is blown, that Day there will be no family
ties between them, they will not be able to question one another. Those
whose scales are heavy, they are the successful. Those whose scales are
light, they are the losers of their selves, remaining in Hell
timelessly, forever. The Fire will sear their faces making them grimace
horribly in it, their lips drawn back from their teeth. ‘Were My Signs
not recited to you and did you not deny them?’” to His words, “‘How many
years did you tarry on the earth?’ They will say, ‘We tarried for a day
or part of a day. Ask those able to count!’ He will say, ‘You only
tarried for a little while if you did but know! Did you suppose that We
created you for amusement and that you would not return to Us?’”
(W23:100-116; H23:99-115)
The Almighty says, “Has the time not arrived for the hearts of those
who believe to yield to the remembrance of Allah and to the Truth He has
sent down, and not to be like those who were given the Book before for
whom the time seemed over long so that their hearts became hard. Many of
them are degenerate.” (W57:15; H57:16)
574. Ibn ‘Umar said, “The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and
grant him peace, took me by the shoulder and said, ‘Be in this world as
if you were a stranger or a traveller on the road.”
Ibn ‘Umar used to say, “In the evening, do not anticipate the
morning, and in the morning do not anticipate the evening. Take from
your health for your illness and from your life for your death.”
[al-Bukhari]
575. Ibn ‘Umar reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless
him and grant him peace, said, “It is not right for a Muslim man who has
anything to bequeath to spend two nights with having a written will in
his possession.” [Agreed upon. This is the variant in al-Bukhari]
In a variant of Muslim, “To spend three nights.” Ibn ‘Umar said, “Not
a night has passed since I heard the Messenger of Allah, may Allah
bless him and grant him peace, say that without my having had my will
with me.”
576. Anas said, “The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him
peace, drew some lines and said, ‘This is man and this is end of his
lifespan. That is how he is when this nearest line comes upon him.”
[al-Bukhari]
577. Ibn Mas’ud said, “The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him
peace, drew lines making a square and then drew a line in the middle
which extended beyond it. He drew some small lines up to this middle
line from the side within the square and said, ‘This is man, and this is
end of his lifespan which encircles him – or by which he is encircled –
and this which goes beyond it is his hope and these small lines are
things that happen. If this one misses him, that one gets him, and if
that one misses him, this one gets him.’” [al-Bukhari]
578. Abu Hurayra reported the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him
and grant him peace, said, “Race to good actions as fast as you can.
What are you waiting for except delayed poverty, oppressive wealth,
debilitating illness, dottering senility, a swift death or the Dajjal?
Or are you waiting for an unseen evil, or the Last Hour? The Last Hour
will be most bitter and terrible.” [at-Tirmidhi]
579. Abu Hurayra reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah
bless him and grant him peace, said, “Remember frequently the thing that
cuts off pleasures,” i.e. death.” [at-Tirmidhi]
580. Ubayy ibn Ka’b said, “When a third of the night had passed, the
Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, stood up
and said, ‘O people! Remember Allah! The first blast has come and it
will be followed by the second blast. Death has come with all that it
involves. Death has come with all that it involves.’
I said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, I do a lot of prayer on you. How much
prayer should I allot for you?’ He said, ‘However much you like.’ I
said, ‘A quarter?’ He said, ‘However much you like, but if you do more,
it will be better for you.’ I said, ‘A half?’ He said, ‘However much you
like, but if you do more, it will be better for you.’ I said,
‘Two-thirds? ‘ He said, ‘However much you like, but if you do more, it
will be better for you.’ I said, ‘I will allot all my prayer for you.’
He said, ‘Then you will be spared from worry and forgiven your wrong
action.’” [at-Tirmidhi]
