Transcript of Death in Islam

Alinah and Hind :) Death in Islam Understanding of Death in Islam
(introduction) In islam, it is an important detail that every living thing will die at some time. This is shown in the verse, "every soul shall have the taste of death" (3:185). Allah has written the exact time when everyone will die, it is impossible to avoid it and it is unfeasible to add or decrease years onto your life.
People should accept this, and know that what Allah wills, he does. The Angel of Death and what happens to believers and non-believers. The Angel of Death and what happens to believers and non-believers (2) you are a non - believer, the angels extract the soul with great pain, and escort it with loathing.
After the soul is taken from the body, it goes into a state of 'Barzakh'. Barzakh is the state between life and the Day of Judgement.
This is different from some religions, where they believe after death the soul is resurrected into another body. This belief is Kufr.If
A in the Quran mentions:
"How can ye reject the faith in Allah? Seeing that ye were without life, and He gave you life; then will He cause you to die, and will again bring you to life; and again to Him will ye return." (28) (Al-Baqara) Life in the Grave The first night of death and life in the grave is the hardest and scariest one. You will be questioned by two angels. One who will question you about your belief and one on your deeds. Every believer and non-believer will be questioned, with exceptions only for infants and the mentally disabled. The two angels who have voices like thunder and eyes like lightning will ask:
1.Who is your Lord?
2.Who is your Prophet?
3.What is your Religion?
4.Who is your Imam?
If you are a believer, Allah will grant you the gift of heaven. But if you are a non -believer, you will pay for your sins in
hell. When your life is near the end, the Angel of Death, Sayyiduna Izraeel, appears and detaches your body from your soul. If the dying soul is a believer of Allah, the Angels of Mercy arise with them. Then they take the soul in a peaceful way and escort it with care. If they are a Kaafir (a non-believer) the Angels of Punishment come. Hadith about Death Thanks :) This verse means that Allah gave us life, will take our lives, meaning death, and again bring us to 'life', meaning He will take us to Jannah to return to Him. The Holy Prophet of Allah has said, "The most intelligent person is the one who often remembers death. Constant remembrance of it prevents one from evil and sin and motivates him towards good morals. The Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam said, "The remembrance of death defeats joy."
This hadith reminds us that life is a test and that we are continuously being tested in our faith and devotion to Allah. " The remembrance of death defeats joy" Shows us that we should put our faith before other enjoyments, as these are not built to last. This hadith does not say not to enjoy life, but to put your faith before anything else. The lesson is that life is short and that the simple pleasures of this life is nothing compared to the wonders of heaven in the next. CONCLUSION In conclusion, death is inevitable.We should prepare for the day of judgement and be the best that we can be by doing good deeds in this life in order to protect us in the next. The believers will be rewarded for their faith and their good deeds during the next life. BIBLIOGRAPHY http://arabicpaper.tripod.com/malik.html
