Death; A Beautiful Gift For A Believer

`DEATH'- ACCORDING TO THE HOLY QUR'AN

1. Meeting with Almighty God



The Holy Qur'an, in the last verse of the Surah Kahf, has expressed death as a meeting with Almighty God and says:

"So whoever desires to meet his Lord, he should do good deeds and not associate anyone in the worship of his Lord." (Qur'an 18:110)

2. Return to Almighty God


Another interpretation which the Holy Qur'an has and which makes clear the reality of death, is "return to Almighty God". However, the Islamic philosophers, regarding the manner of the creation of the entities (and amongst them, man) by Almighty God and after then, their return towards Almighty God, have subtle, profound and interesting theories. The Holy Qur'an says:

"Verily, we are Almighty God's and verily to Him shall we return."(Qur'an 2:156)  

3. Seizing of the Soul



One of the beautiful interpretations of the Holy Qur'an in the matter of death is. This word means seizing a thing in its entirety. Hence, according to the verse under consideration, the reality of death is that the angels commissioned to take the soul, seize the entire personality of man at the time of death, and remove it from the captivity of the body. They, then carry it to the Divine Presence:

"Say: the Angel of Death who is given charge of you shall cause you to die, and then to your Lord you shall be brought back." (Qur'an 32:11)
