at-Tazkirah: التذكرة

“And keep reminding, because reminding benefits the believers.” (51:55)

At the Time of Death


Hakeemul Ummah Hadhrat Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahmatullah Alayh) concludes the list of “True Beliefs” in ‘Bahishti Zewar’ with the following two points:

“51 – However good or bad a person may have been in his life, but he is rewarded or punished according to his condition at the time of his end (death).

52 – Whenever a person deprecates or begs pardon or becomes a Muslim in his life, it is acceptable to Allah. But just at the time of death when the breath is not regular and the angels of doom are visible, no deprecation or regret or Faith is accepted by Allah.”

This is a serious matter and highlights the importance of never neglecting the commands and orders of Allah Ta’ala, because you don’t know when your end is written. Just imagine a 110 year old man has his whole life been engaged in Salaah, but at his last day he decides to take a rest. Allah alone knows if this man will be raised amongst the Namazi or be-Namazi… may Allah protect us all from forgetting our death.

    The beloved Prophet (saws) said, “Die before you die”.

    To die with a pure heart and clean conscience is the aim of every true Muslim.
