Are YOU ready…

1736How do you know if you’re ready for death? Mans greatest fear is death. I want to know that if I were to die right now what would my death be like? Would it be painful, would it be pleasurable, would it be sweet? Here is an answer: Your death will be exactly as your salat it to you right now. Why? Because when you pray salat what do you do? You go and meet Allah. When you die what happens? You go and meet Allah. If you dislike meeting Allah while you are in this world in the body why would you want to meet Allah when you leave the body? If salat is sweet to you right now your death would be sweet if you died right now. If you eagerly wait for salat, then when death comes to you, you will eagerly wait to be released from this cage and soar to new heights. If your salat is a burden on you right now, death will be a burden on you if you die right now. If salat is painful, death will be painful. Look at your salat, improve your salat, and you will improve your connection to Allah, because both of these are nothing but a meeting with Allah.

  1. Assalaam U Alaykum. Its dangerous to compare death with Salah ONLY unless there is a hadith on it.

  2. wa laikum us salam,

    This post is about importance of salah, that if we love to Pray then we will definitely love to meet ALLAH after death.

    Concerning the meeting with Allah after death, Imam al-Bukhari (may Allah have mercy upon him) reported in his Sahih, in the chapter on “Whoever loves to meet Allah, Allah loves to meet him”:

    From ‘Ubaadah ibn al-Saamit (radi Allahu anhu), from the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) who said: “Whoever loves to meet Allah, Allah will love to meet him, and whoever hates to meet Allah, Allah will hate to meet him.” ‘Aa’ishah (radi Allahu anha) or one of his wives said: “But we all dislike the idea of death.” He said, “It is not what you are thinking. When death approaches the believer and he is given the news of Allah’s pleasure and honour, nothing will be more dear to him than what lies ahead of him, so he will love to meet Allah and Allah will love to meet him. But when death approaches the disbeliever and he is given the news of Allah’s wrath and punishment, nothing will be more disliked by him than that what lies ahead of him, so he will hate to meet Allah and Allah will hate to meet him.” [Sahih Al-Bukhari]

    • Yea I understand but what I am saying is different. I meant that making Salah the ONLY criteria for having a good death or loving the meeting with Allaah is dangerous because Islam isnt just about Salah. Your post is Alhamdolillaah very good but there are other acts of worship which can be included here. Or at least you should write it as “our death will be exactly as your salah and OTHER GOOD DEEDS are right now” 🙂 Hope its cleared now 🙂

      Keep up the good work. May Allaah put barakah in it and reward you immensley

  3. SunnahProteges

    Yeah got it now, JAZAKALLAH khair 🙂 , but am just talking in reference with this hadith :“The difference between us and them (the hypocrites) is prayer. He who intentionally misses prayers is a non believer.” (Tirmidhi). anyway JAZAKALLAH KHAIR for ur suugestions akhee 🙂

  4. It’s a good practice to trace out the point of itefaaq, from the matters of ikhtilaaf.
