    Default Islamic quotes on Death & the Hereafter

    Hamid al-Qasyrasi (rahimahullah) said:

    Though we know death is certain, we have not prepared ourselves for it.

    Though we know paradise is definite, we have not worked for it.

    Though we know the hell fire is certain, we have not feared it.

    So why are you delighted?

    What are you waiting for?

    Death is the first visitor from the Almighty bringing good or evil tidings so get closer to your Lord!

    The Angel of Death has been Assigned to You!

    It is narrated that ‘Uthmn b. ffn – Allh be pleased with him – said in a sermon:
    Son of Adam! Know that the angel of death who has been assigned to you has not ceased to pass you and move on to others, ever since you have been in this world. But it is as if he is about to pass someone else and move on to target you, so be careful and prepare for him (by correcting your deeds). And do not forget him, for he does not forget you. And know o son of Adam, if you are heedless about yourself and do not prepare, no one else will prepare for you. You must meet Allah the Mighty and Majestic, so take for yourself and do not leave it to someone else. Peace be on you.
    Ab Bakr Al-Daynr, Al-Mujlasah wa Jawhir Al-lm 2: 73, 74.

    Exclamation Re: Islamic quotes on Death & the Hereafter

    Which life to Pursue?

    It is reported that Al-Hasan Al-Basr often used to say, O youth! Seek the hereafter, for we often see people pursuing the hereafter and finding it as well as the duny (worldly wellbeing), but we have never seen anyone pursue the duny and gain the hereafter as well as the duny.Al-Bayhaq, Al-Zuhd Al-Kabr, article 12.

    The World in Three Days

    It is reported from Al-Hasan Al-Basr – Allh have mercy on him – that he said:
    The life of this world is made up of three days: yesterday has gone with all that was done; tomorrow, you may never reach; but today is for you so do what you should do today.Al-Bayhaq, Al-Zuhd Al-Kabr p197.

    Hamza did you translate these?

    "Tasawwuf enlightens the heart through knowledge, action, and dhikr. Hazratism boxes a person into groupthink and promotes sectarian bigotry." Shaykh Hamzah Wald Maqbul.

    Exclamation Re: Islamic quotes on Death & the Hereafter

    Allaah says,


    Everyone shall taste death. And only on the day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full. And whoever is removed away from the fire and admitted to Paradise he indeed is successful. The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception (a deceiving thing). (Aal-Imraan 3: 175)


    Such is the reality of death and what comes after it. Every one of us shall taste it whether poor or rich; healthy or sick, old or young; leader or led and none of us can escape it.



    So WHY do we act like death is not near? Why do we try to ignore thinking of death when it can come to us at ANY second!



    It maybe that we are alive now but that we will not be tomorrow. So prepare NOW and let us not ignore the inevitable!

    Al-Hasan al-Basri says:

    “When love of this world enters the heart, fear of the Hereafter exits from it. Beware of worldy distractions, for no servant opens a door of this world without several doors of works for the Hereafter being shut for him.”
