“Every soul shall taste death in the end; to Us shall you be brought back.” (29:57)
Say: “The death from which you flee will truly overtake you: then you will be sent back to the Knower of things secret and open: and He will tell you (the truth of) the things that you did!” (62:8)
Everything will perish save His Face. His is the Decision, and to Him you (all) shall be returned. (28:88)
Praise is to Allah Ta’ala, the giver and the taker of life. The one Who puts souls into the bodies and takes them out. The One Who created us from dust and returns us to it, and when He wills, He will bring us back from the dust and will resurrect us.
Blessings and Salutations upon our Prophet of Peace SallAllahu alaihi wasallam. He taught about death in all its guises, as a warning for us to be prepared, waking us from negligence, ridding us from confusion and guiding to the Straight Path.
Blessings and peace upon his pure and noble family and Companions RadhiAllahu anhum, and those who follow them in truth, those who live in this world whilst their hearts long for the hereafter. Striving for that eternal abode, struggling until they meet their Lord, may Allah Ta’ala be pleased with them. And us. Ameen.
O green shrouded traveller
Moving from the shade of a tree.
As a feather.
On the empyreal zephyr
O green shrouded traveller,
By the stupor of Azraeel’s
Wept over, washed, and wrapped
The wayfarers costume,
Embellished with sidr.
Prayers beside the Prophet.
Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar.
A Journey solemnized by thousands.
Musk fills the ether.
A heavenly host
Presenting a vestment
From The ONE,
Placing your Book in Illiyyeen.
While the soul,
Soft in the folds of
O Allah, Bless for me whatever is before death, and whatever is after death
Insha’Allah the above to be recited twenty-five times daily, according to Hadith.
O Allah, grant me martyrdom in Your way and cause me to die in the city of Your Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam.
O Allah with Your Might we rise in the morning and with Your Might we live, and with Your Might we die, and to You shall be our Resurrection.

All good is from Allah Ta’ala whereas mistakes are from this humble speck. May Allah Ta’ala Bless all readers, bringing you all closer to Him and His Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam. Ameen.
