Are you thinking of giving up? Do not give up. Don’t worry. Analyse, Is this warning for you? Is the time up for you? If so we cannot run away from death. We cannot hide anywhere from death. We have Spiritual remedies and alternative therapies to heal you.
If you are a muslim or non mulism –100% submission to the Will of Allah is a must. Remember Allah said ” I have created Jinn and man for nothing except to worship me”.
So the prescription is to believe and worship One God (Allah) the creator.. Do not worship false Gods made by man and those which are created ones. Allah is high above all the creations. Pray 5 times prayers (not one time, two times, 3 times or 4 times). Give zakat, sadaqah, fast during Ramadan, Haj once in life time. The first two are compulsory. The latter 3 is to do if you are healthy and wealthy and affordable. Zikir (remember Allah) many times as possible. Repent for your sins. Do all good things Allah taught us to do as in the Holy Quran. with in two weeks you will have peace of mind.
Death is at any time for us, on the road, in the house, in the hospital , in the bed, young or old. If we submit 100% to the Will of Allah, we should not worry for death. We are passing to the next life which is better than the life of this world. Muslims think of death every time every day and be prepared for death. By that we get peace in mind. InshaAllah Warning signs . Your time has come. Your grave is located and allocated. Death is the door that every single person will enter.
Definition of death is the beginning of another life. Death comes only once. Average life span is 60 to 70. We work from 8am to 6 pm every day. We Work hard day and night. For success . To pass the exam and to be prosperous. For about 25 years we go to school. We study hard to pass the exam. After school we work, earn , and marry have children. Work for another 30 years and come to expiry date. Teach our children to go to school and the cycle repeats. e.g Usually expiry date is written as Best before 2013 Dec. Some say use before 31 Dec 2015.So make use of your life before the expiry date.
Islamic view of death is a gift from Allah. Price and reward is a gift you will get after death. After the exam you get reward. After the test you get higher qualification . If your test is many and tough you get more qualification.If a person is blind, his arms or legs cut off. Or if he is in stroke , paralysed and still he remember and thank Allah. He will get more reward in palace in heaven. If you are good your neighbor and people will miss you. If you are bad , people will curse you and say it is better he died. Repent and ask forgiveness for your sins and bad deeds..
Prepare for death. Before too late. Repent for forgiveness is never too late. Allah will forgive your sins before the expiry date. When the angel of death comes to you then the door of forgiveness is closed. Try before the expiry date. You cannot hide or run away from death. Surgery, medicine, and therapies can comfort you for a while but nothing can prolong your life span.
In Quran 36 :68 Allah said ,if we grant long life to any, We cause him to be reversed in nature, Will they not understand.” Another verse says’ “Some of you are called to die early and some are sent back to the feeblest old age so that you know nothing after having known . Quran 22:5
We should only ask for healthy life to worship Allah. If we are too old with loss of memory, Physically weak and wearing diapers, Ask yourself, is it worth asking for long life? Praise be and thank to Allah. It is good to go back best before expiration date. So Start preparing now for death and follow the above prescription.
When we are ill, faithful muslims are with patience and , ask Allah for cure. From Allah!!
الَّذِي خَلَقَنِي فَهُوَ يَهْدِين
Al Lathee Khalaka ni Fa hu wa yahtheen.
“Who created me, and it is He Who guides me;
وَالَّذِي هُوَ يُطْعِمُنِي وَيَسْقِينِ
“Who gives me food and drink,
وَإِذَا مَرِضْتُ فَهُوَ يَشْفِينِ
And when I am ill, it is He who cures me.
وَالَّذِي يُمِيتُنِي ثُمَّ يُحْيِينِ
“Who will cause me to die, and then to life (again);
وَالَّذِي أَطْمَعُ أَن يَغْفِرَ لِي خَطِيئَتِي يَوْمَ الدِّينِ
“And who, I hope, will forgive me my faults on the day of Judgment. Quran 26: 78-82.
It is a great error to turn away from Allah. For only Allah can heal them. Doctors, hospitals, medicines , can be provided only with Allah’s guidance and permission. The Ultimate healer is Allah (SWT).
There is always hope because in Hadith about Medicine: Bukhari :: Book 7 :: Volume 71 :: Hadith 582
Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet S.A.W said, “There is no disease that Allah has created, except that He also has created its treatment.” We need to search for it.
