Will you save yourself from the hereafter when you mock it? Will mocking save you from the torment of hell? But at the moment of death, you do not laugh, you simply lose control over your mouth and nose. You just writhe, experience that terror in tears and undergo a tremendous shock. You do not display that pleasure, joy, recklessness, or indifference.
This world is a world of trial, people enter through one door and go out from another. We all are going to reach that honor, that beauty and go to the Sight of Allah insha'Allah. Almighty Allah says "Every self will taste death." There is one beautiful tasting and one painful tasting. May Allah make us among those who taste death nicely.
Almighty Allah says; "Every self will taste death." There is a tasting like honey and in this; lives will be taken nicely with beautiful smells, full of beauties, with compliments, with contentment, with encouragement, by reciting the Name of Allah. And there is another way that lives will be taken and in this; lives will be taken with beatings, by dragging them in dark, by making them lose face. May Allah deem us among those Muslims whose lives will be taken nicely. If one's life is taken nicely, his place will surely be in the Heaven insha'Allah.
There is a weird apathy upon those people who see death as distant. Such people keep themselves only busy with their own business, their own family, their own food and drinks, etc. They display a very timid attitude in defending and communicating what is right. Actually death is very near to every person. One should be in a sincere effort for the good pleasure of God.
The Heaven is an abode of joy and it is eternal happiness, eternal beauty. When you are sending your child to the Hereafter you are actually sending your child to an abode that everything is perfect, so mourning would be extremely wrong while doing so. It would mean to say; -may God forbid- “I didn’t like what God wanted, I know better”. And that would be ascribing partners to God.
As Almighty God is the One Who takes the life of that person, He brings one to this world with goodness and He takes that person to His Sight with goodness when he dies. So there is no meaning in crying. It is a characteristic of a Muslim to be content with what our Lord has ordained in our destiny and see the good in that destiny.
The mentality of mourning is fundamentally wrong. A Muslim would never do that. God is the One Who brings us to this world, and God is the One Who takes us back to His Sight. The right thing to do is to submit to our destiny and to put our trust in the goodness, beauty and abundance of what God gives. Anything other than that would not befit a Muslim.
People die every day. We are living in the world, this is a place of testing. People get sick every day. How do they come up with the idea of mourning? There is no such thing in the Qur'an. There is no such understanding in Islam. It only has a place in idolatry, in the totemist mentality, in the belief system of the idolaters. This is a characteristic of pagan religions, but there is no such thing in Islam.
Ultimately man is a weak creature. He dies and is buried in a grave. When he loses a loved one, he loses himself, saying, “I am dying, I am burning inside out, I am all done!” What would you say to that beloved one in the grave? You would flee in fear when you see that body in the grave. Well then, Who is the One to be loved? God is. Who is the One Who shows you that image? God.
When incidents are taking place, God commissions His angels everywhere. Nothing happens as a coincidence. Azrael, the angel of death, is the one who takes the lives of all those that die. Taking permission from God, he goes to take the life of a person. The hour and minute of everything is predestined.
A lover should be willing to risk death for God and should want to sacrifice himself for God: He should be willing to sacrifice himself for God. He should put his life on the line. Some people are very fond of their lives; they want to avoid even the slightest conflicts of interest, they do not want any harm to come to them and say, "I come first." Your loved one should come the first. I mean some people do not want to give anything of theirs, they do not want to present anything of theirs to their loved ones. They are always after saving themselves.
We need to talk about a lucid world with an honest, sincere, clear and lucid mind. When everything is explained with the Qur'an, with the verses, a relief and ease is formed in the hearts of people. Or else, if you use the approach of the people devoted to this world towards them, even though they already know that this world will die eventually, it will be like you are literally blown away. Your being blown away would scare them. They would feel relieved only if they see that you are very well aware of the existence of God.
You will die eventually and so will those you put on a show for. What is it that you show off? A few clothes, a few accessories, maybe a car, maybe a phone. Well my brother, you will leave all those behind when you go to your grave. Your iPhone will be left on your desk, so will your laptop and you will be buried under the ground with merely a burial robe.
Getting spoiled, running riot and showing off is one within the other. They are showing off and putting on an act for wretched people. You are a wretched being and so are those you put on a show for. You will all die one day, so pull yourself together. At the end of the day, you are made up of flesh and bones. What if you put on a dress? What if you have a state -of -the -art computer? What if you have a nice phone? You will die because you are made up of flesh and bone; they will bury you in your grave and your body will decompose. Why do you get spoiled and run riot then? Why do you show off?
Death is not something challenging for a Muslim. It is like waking up from a sleep. God says "easily"; that means easily in the perfect sense of the word, not in a half measure. For instance, if one suffers a little, if it is hard on him, you wouldn't call it easily. Only zero hardship can be called “easily”.
Sleep is the weakness of this world. Every day after a certain hour one feels sleepy. They go and lay down to die and arise from death hours later. They bathe, they eat, again they feel sleepy at night. The time to die comes and they go die again. In the morning they arise from the dead again. Dying and arising from the dead, dying and arising from the dead, one's whole life goes on like this. In the end, they die for real and then arise from the dead in another world.
Muslims always face beautiful things after their deaths. There would be no difficulties, no pain, no fear for them; they won't face such feelings in any stage. Everything goes smoothly for them. They will never face any kind of distress while their souls are taken, while they arise from death, while they enter Heaven.
Humans have nothing to be arrogant about. You are a being, made up of flesh and bones and blood, you have natural needs, why is it that you put on airs? You are going to die eventually, why are you putting on an act? And life ends in a very short while. Every dead body bloats and explodes inside the grave. There is nothing for you to put on airs about; humans are piteous beings.
The longer one remains in this world, the more one might have the means to improve in the spiritual sense. After one passes away, after one goes to Heaven, there would be no need for courage, loyalty and everything else. They only eat and drink and have fun, praise God and become like the angels. That is why being in this world for a long time is rewarding as well; that is because when you remain in this world, you acquire millions of good deeds.
For one who spent all his life as a Muslim, it would be the whispering of satan to be concerned saying something like, "Would I be able to preserve my faith at the moment of death?" There is no need to take that serious. No such thing would happen. I mean a wholehearted, subconscious faith is the basis. Or else something might happen to one's mind, such whisperings have no validity. God would look at one in all his integrity.
There is no such thing as the torment of the grave. You pass to a different dimension when you die. At the moment you die, you are made to feel that you are Muslim and you would instantly understand. From that peaceful feeling you feel, from your comfort you instantly get it and God would certainly never persecute His servants. There is no such thing. May God forbid, God is far beyond such an unjust, cruel understanding. He is Infinite Wisdom and Endlessly Compassionate.
Neither the Last Day nor death would have any aspect that would make Muslims uneasy. It would offend God if Muslims think that they would be persecuted or suffer somehow. That is because God says, "Trust Me, if you are good no harm would ever touch you." Muslims should always think good and well about God.
Even the prettiest, the most beautiful person will decay under the ground [when they are dead]. Life is very short: We thank God for what He gave to us but it would be wrong to get attached to this body. Think about a very beautiful lady: Open her grave years later and you will see only a skeleton; a skull, arms and legs. Or think about all those heroes, the lions of the past: Even their bones are gone now.
Muslims do not get offended with each other. The heart of a Muslim is always together with God. The world is a short, temporary course, a place of education; this is no place to make a name for oneself, to claim to be superior, to claim to be intelligent and so forth. When observed from outer space, the world looks like a speck of dust. Go further and you cannot even see it anymore. Mankind is only a particle within the speck of dust. A pitiful creature indeed. So from where comes this arrogance? We will soon be dead and gone.
