Peace and Blessings be upon you all

It is told of al-Aswad, the Abyssinian, that when he prayed at night he used to turn to his left and his right, and that he said, when asked what he was doing, “I am looking to see from which direction the Angel of Death shall come to me.’

At-Tantawi related that a bus full of people was moving when suddenly the driver stopped. The passengers asked him what was wrong.

He said, “I am stopping for this old man who is waving so that he can get on the bus.” They all said in wonder, “We do not see anyone.”

He said, “Look at him over there.” They repeated that there was no one to be seen. He said confidently, “Now look, he is coming to get in.” Now the situation was beyond wonder, and they exclaimed,

“By Allah, we don’t see anyone.”

Then, in an instant The driver died in the driver’s seat.

“When their term is reached, neither can they delay it nor can they advance it an hour[or a moment].” (Quran 7:34)
