Fear of Death
Frail and gasping, he took steps with full effort, with his son holding his hand.
His son was concerned, and he was aware of the son’s worries.
After a few steps, he stood, turned to the son and said smilingly,
Such and such a person says that he's afraid of death, but I think dying is very easy….
Death is similar to sleep…..
God says in the Quran, “God takes the souls at the time of their death, and those who have not died in their sleep. Then He retains those for whom He has ordained death and releases the others until a specified time. There are indeed signs in that for a people who reflect. (Zumar, 42)
The son’s worries increased; and his forehead was covered with cold sweat.
