Death is a frightening, horrifying fact that faces all living things, none can resist it, even those who gather around the dying person. Death is a repeated occurrence that strikes in all instances and throughout the ages, and it strikes the young and the old, the rich and the poor, the strong and the weak and the healthy and the ill.
Allah, the Exalted, says:
“Say (to them): ‘Verily, the death from which you flee will surely meet you, then you will be sent back to (Allah), the All-Knower of the unseen and the seen, and He will tell you what you used to do.’ ” (62:8)
The end of life is the same for all, for they all die:
“Everyone shall taste death.” (3:185)
However, the destination after death is not the same:
“A party will be in Paradise (those who believed in Allah and followed what Allah’s Messenger sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam brought them) and a party in the blazing Fire (Hell) (those who disbelieved in Allah and followed not what Allah’s Messenger sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam brought them).” (42:7)
