Death and Dying

  • What You Should Do Just Before Death
    by: Sayyid Muhammad Rizvi


    Death is a reality in which all human beings believe. However, it is also a reality which most of us like to keep out of our minds.

    In Islam, death is not an end to our existence; it is a passage, which takes us from this world to the hereafter – the actual purpose for our creation and the result of our work in this life. Whether we fear death or not depends on how much we have prepared for the reckoning of the Day of Judgement.
