      DYING WITH IMAN

      http://www.huzurpinari.com/resimler/manzara/92.jpg

          In order to die with iman [1], it is necessary to strive to have a correct faith, to do good deeds, and to keep company with pious people. It is declared in hadith-i sharifs:


      "Iman is to have belief in Allah, in His angels, in His books, in His prophets, in the Last Day [that is, the Resurrection, Paradise, Hell, the Reckoning, Mizan], in qadar
      [2], in that good and evil are from Allah, in death, and in the Resurrection. It is to bear witness that there is no god but Allah and that I am His born servant and messenger." [Bukhari, Muslim, Nasai]

      "A slave’s first deed for which he will be called to account on the Day of Resurrection is salat
      [3]. If it is found good, his other deeds will be good, too. If it is found bad, his other deeds will be bad, too." [Tabarani]

      "To say “Subhanallah” fills half of Mizan’s pan that weighs thawab. To say “Alhamdulillah,” on the other hand, fills all of it. To say takbir [saying “Allahu akbar”] fills the space between the heavens and the earth." [Tirmidhi]

      "What weigh heaviest on the Mizan
      [4] are these five words: “Subhanallahi wa-l hamdulillahi wa la ilaha illallahu wallahu akbar” and the reward a person expects on account of his pious child who has died before himself." [Nasai]

      "I swear that if all that is between the earth and the heavens were brought and put on one pan of the Mizan and if [the word] “La ilaha ill-Allah” were put on the other pan of it, it would certainly outweigh them." [Tabarani]

      "A Muslim who reaches the age of 80 will not be brought before Mizan, will not be called to account, and will be said, “Enter Paradise.” [Abu Nu‘aym]

      "Jabrail ‘alaihis-salam brought this message: “Live as much as you wish, but you will certainly die. Love whatever you want, but you will eventually have to bid farewell to it. Do whatever you please, but you will have to account for it in the end.”[Tabarani]

      "If a person makes friends with another even for a moment, he will account for his company." [Ibn Jarir]


      GLOSSARY
