Death about Death

‘Drunk due to approaching death'.  

Why is it emphasized as 'drunken'?  Because, when one is approaching death, he will be faced with such a great fear that he would not remember anything else but 'fear of death or own sins'.  Here, I would like to share five things that we will face when we are facing Sakaratul Maut.

A TREMENDOUSLY GREAT PAIN.  The greatest pain is death.  The analogy of the pain is equal to being slashed or stabbed, etc with 300 swords. 

WE WILL BE ABLE TO SEE THE FACE OF THE DEATH ANGEL (Izra-il).  It was mentioned that Izra-il will be visible to our eyes and his appearance depends a whole lot on our way of life.  How we lead our life? The formula is simple ~  If we have done many good deeds, Izra-il will appear pleasant to our eyes. On the other hand, if we have committed too many sins all our life, Izra-il will appear 'stinky and ugly', worse and uglier than all those man-made 'ghost' in the movies.  One ustaz explained further:  Once, Nabi Ibrahim p.b.u.h. requested to see Izra-il just for a short while, and Allah permitted him to do so, he got terribly scared that he said ~ It's so ugly and scary that it should have been enough to punish the sinners (not to mention the upcoming punishment in the grave and in hell).  Wallahu'alam...

WE WILL BE ABLE TO SEE AND HEAR RAQIB & A'TID VOICE.  What will they say?  This will also depend on our deeds.  Those with good deeds will receive compliments from them and those with sins, will receive curses from them...

WE WILL SEE OUR 'HOME' IN THE HEREAFTER.  It was mentioned that while facing sakaratul maut, our hijab will be opened and we will be able to see where we will live in eternity, our home in the hefeafter.  Will it be heaven or hell?  Wallahu'alam.  At this moment ladies and gentlemen, it is already too late to repent.  Nauzubillah...

WE WILL FACE A GROUP OF SATAN THAT APPEAR TO DIVERT YOUR AQIDAH FROM ALLAH.  The ustaz mentioned that normally, these syaitan will appear in disguise of people we love or trust the most like our mother, our spouse, or our children OR in disguise of people that we hate most.  We hate them so much that we forget to say 'Lailaha Ilallah' (there isn't any other God than Allah).  To divert our aqidah, syaitan will try their very best to make us say the opposite of Lailaha Ilallah or even agree to them with just a blink of an eye.  Do u see how critical is this stage?  The ustaz explained further.  Close to dying, one will feel thirsty therefore, the satan might also appear in disguise of someone we love with a glass of water.  They will negotiate with you ~  "If u want to drink this, say this ..." (at this point, that ustaz did not finish the syaitan's sentence).  If we fail to battle them (nauzubillah), only Allah knows where we will belong.

In accordance with a hadith that says: "Teach by you (the person who is still alive) to the person who is dying with: La illaha illALLAH."

Death is sudden...

Now I bring you to the great time when Rasulullah saw was facing his death (Tears of Rasulullah saw)

 Suddenly, there was a person said salam.  "May I come in?" he asked.  But Fatimah did not allow him to enter the room.  
"I'm sorry, my father is ill," said Fatimah turned her body back and closed the door. She went back to her father who had opened his eyes and asked Fatimah, "Who was he, my daughter?".  
“I don't know, my father. It was the first time for me to see him," Fatimah said gently.  
Then, Rasulullah looked at his daughter with trembled look, as if he wanted to reminisce about every part of her daughter's face.  "Know one thing! He is who erases the temporary pleasure; he is who separates the companionship in the world.

He is the death angel," said Rasulullah .

          Fatimah bore the bomb of her cry. The death angel came toward him,  But Rasulullah asked why Jibril did not come along with him.  Then, Jibril was called. Jibril was ready in the sky to welcome the soul of Habibullah and the leader of the earth.
          "O Jibril, explain me about my rights in front of ALLAH?" Rasulullah asked with a weakest voice.
          "The doors of sky has opened, the angels are waiting for your soul."
"All jannats open widely waiting for you," Jibril said.
But, in fact, those all did not make Rasulullah relieve, his eyes were still full of worry.
          "You are not happy to hear this news?" asked Jibril.
"Tell me about the destiny of my people in future?"
          "Don't worry, o Rasul ALLAH . I heard ALLAH told me: 'I make jannat haram for every one, except the people of Muhammad are inside it," Jibril said.
  It became closer and closer, the time for Malaekat Izrail to do his work.  Slowly, Rasulullah's soul was pulled. It was seemed that the body of Rasulullah was full of sweat; the nerves of his neck became tight.
"Jibril, how pain this sakaratul maut is!"
          Rasulullah saw: uttered a groan slowly. Fatimah closed her eyes, Ali sat beside her bow deeply and Jibril turned his face back.
"Am I repugnant to you that you turn your face back o Jibril?" Rasulullah saw: asked to the Deliverer of Wahyu.
"Who is the one who could see the Habibullah in his sakaratul maut," Jibril said.
          Not for a while, Rasulullah saw:uttered a groan because of unbearable pain.
          "O ALLAH, how greatest is this sakaratul maut. Give me all these pains, don't to my people." The body of Rasulullah saw: became cold, his feet and chest did not move anymore.  His lips vibrated as if he wanted to say something, Ali took his ear close to Rasulullah saw:

"Uushiikum bis shalati, wa maa malakat aimanuku - take care the saalat and take care the weak people among you."

Outside the room, there were cries shouted each other, sahabah held each other. Fatimah closed her face with her hands and, again, Ali :took his ear close to Rasulullah saw: mouth which became bluish.
"Ummatii, ummatii, ummatii?" - "My people, my people, my people."
And the life of the noble man ended.

Inalilla hiwaina ilaihirajiun…
