The Indiscriminate Nature of Death


(Summary of Mufti Ebrahim Salejee’s majlis - Saturday 2nd March)

It is the good fortune of man that he acknowledges the favours of Allah Ta`ala. Whatever we have is from Allah Ta`ala as He alone is the Controller and Conferrer. But the moment a person begins to feel that he has acquired whatever he has on account of his own doing and attaches his absolute ownership to everything that he has, it is the stepping stone to his peril. Imagine for a moment, a person lends his brand-new Porsche to his friend for a month or two. However, the friend connives and tries to forge the log book and transfer the car on to his name. How upset and distraught won’t his friend feel! Similar is the case with the favours of Allah Ta`ala. When man begins to assume complete ownership over them and forgets Allah, then this is the worst of crimes he could ever commit.

Death is not fixed for any class or age of people. It comes by indiscriminately; whether to the young or old, ail or healthy, rich or poor. 

Man needs to prepare for this moment and this is a sign of his intelligence as is indicated in the hadeeth of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). Life in this world is short and we have to make the most and achieve the most during this short stay. In this time and age when we want to expedite all our affairs, we would also want the same for our rewards in the hereafter. One of the ways as explained in the Hadeeth to expedite our rewards are the recitation of the Qur’aan Majeed and pondering over death.
