Sorry for the strange question but thats what I really wanna know. All of you might have read or heard somewhere that a momin/mominah isn't scared of death and rather he/she takes death as a fulfillment of the promise of Allah Subhaana Wa Taala. I don't remember the verses or Ahadeeth stating such stuff. It is also said that believer has both mercy and fear of Allah. A believer expects that Allah will forgive him:statisfie but he also has the fear that Allah might be very upset with some particular action of his:raging:.

Honestly speaking, there was a time when I was ready to die and just felt that Allah would forgive me but with time that confidence fadedimsad and now I think I don't have that good a chance but I'm working on regaining that level of faith.

I guess that it is a high level of faith when you're totally done with this world and see your destination and happiness only and only in the hereafter and Allah just induces that feeling in you that you'll get what you want:statisfie. To put forward this question in other words, is your faith that high???:?

Excellent question/thread.:thumbs_up

To be honest I am not the best I can be but I am improving. We should not reveal our sins.That is why I am limited to say.

For me as a non-Muslim it is perhaps a strange concept to think about 'being ready to die'.

Much as I love God and look forward to paradise, I cannot say that I feel ready to die.
Hopefully I still have much earthly living ahead of me, and being God's instrument on this earth.

God can take me when he feels my time has come ... but until then I have some living to do! :statisfie

As Salamu Aleykum (my salam smily is gone :D )


Hm, that's a very good question. I'd say for sure that I do not know, if all this what I am doing (prayin etc.) was enough. Insha'allah, all the things that I'm doing are right and accepted by Allah ta'ala. Insha'allah Allah ta'ala accepts us as good believers in Islam. If all those things were okay, I would be ready to die :) But for now, I'm not ready to die :( Praying etc. is not enough :(

wa salam!

When I was younger I thought those very thoughts, even though I was not Muslim at the time. They do sound like good thoughts and do show a desire to be with the believers in Jannah.

But I think perhaps we need to modify that thought and come to an understanding that it is part of our deen to complete all of our trials. Perhaps a better thought would be:

"May I be given the sabr to not see or feel the time needed for me to complete my trials and chores and may I complete them in a manner pleasing to Allaah(swt)"

So the wording for the poll might be:

"May the time until my death pass as a moment and I finish my life truly serving Allaah(swt)"

I am trying to improve. Inshallah I am trying to stabalize myself and keep religion to a pace. I am trying to schedule myself out to pray 5 times a day, read Quran. Be on my best behavoir according to Islam. Inshallah I will be able to accomplish this.

Thats what I'm asking. I know that none of us know where we're gonna die or how many of our deeds have been acceptable but I'm talking about that..... that.... (I don't know how to put it) that sense of comfort with death.

You just feel that you want to meet Allah and you're quite sure that Allah will forgive you. I'm talking about that sensation where you see heaven even on earth and I don't think thats possible for a non-believer to attain.

Sister, I was ready to die some good amount of time ago. I was the happiest person in the world those days and I was literally chasing death. I mean I was not running on the roads trying to get hit but I was fearless. The only fear I had was falling into some sin and displeasing Allah. Like the Qur'an says in Surah Yunus verse 62-64

062 Behold! verily on the friends of God there is no fear, nor shall they grieve;

063 Those who believe and (constantly) guard against evil;-

064 For them are glad tidings, in the life of the present and in the Hereafter; no change can there be in the words of God. This is indeed the supreme felicity.


Allah just induces that emotion in you that your death won't be painful for you as the angels of death take the soul of a believer very gently and even the soul's ready to depart whereas the disbeliever's soul clinges onto its body at the moment of death and the angels pull it out by very painful meansimsad

Being ready to die doesn't mean that we want to die immediately when we are ready, it means that we are prepared for death at any time and at that time we should be in a good state where our sins should be minimal and our good deeds many.

I don't think this would bother you because of your concept of salvation, where you don't fear Gods punishment because for some reason another person will bear all your sins

I would love to return to Allah. Whenever Allah decides to take my life, I will be ready. I'm not perfect, though when Allah decides to take my life, I get the feeling I have reached my highest potential to do good. At the same time I'm scared and anxious, that I could do more. So now I have decided whatever I do, whatever decision I make and the time allocated to me, must be used very wisely.

I'm sick of this world. When I was younger, all I thought about getting a very good job with a high salary, so I can buy whatever I want and have a comfortable lifestyle and to gain a high status in society for selfish reasons. I thought I would be happy. Though I was foolish, naive and forgot to take into account the reality of this world. The pleasures that provided in this world are distractions and only increase your hunger for more which can never be quenched. I realised we are not truly happy and all I would be doing is falling into a trap, that others have fallen into.

I feel sick that I used to spend hours and hours playing computer games, when I could have used my time wisely. All I ended up buying so many computer games and wasted so much of my parent’s money. I feel guilty and pathetic. It took me years to realise this.


I'm glad I have realised that before it got too late. I decided to live a very simplistic life, and just try to focus my attention to Allah.

^MashaAllah, only 17 years old and you think like that! Indeed you have been guided by Allah!

To the thread starter: I don't think any of us will be ready to die completely, because of the weight of sins on our shoulders that feel like big mountains, and drag us down... but at the end of the day we should have hope in Allah's Mercy, and we should love to meet Him... and hopw He will forgive our sins, big and small, Ameen...

A very interesting question who supose many answers because the reasons can be different....

So, if I am ready to die this means I do all the best in this life...but I am sure not...
or
If I am ready to die means that I am too old and allready this life is enough for me...
or
If I am ready to die means that....I want to be in heaven...if i deserve of course...
.
.
.
and the list of IF... continue....

It makes no sense to not try to live a life in which we are not always preparing for death. It is best to be ready to die this very moment as this moment can easily be our last moment.

The time between birth and death is a very short fleeting moment.

Assalamu alaykum,

I don't want to vote anything. Yes, I am a Muslim. But no, I will never be ready to die. I will never feel that I have done enough for serving Allah swt and I will always feel I can do something better or do something more for Allah swt. I will never be ready to die but when I do, then I guess I am ready because Allah swt chose it was time for me to die.

I think, the meaning of this thread is getting closed with people not totally understanding the question. I never said that you will feel that you've done enough for Allah because its simply impossible. No matter what we do, we'll never be able to thank Him enough for his grace and blessings. I'm talking about how the Sahaba used to feel. About how they were content with whatever they had and some of them even ran into martyrdom with smiles on their faces. I don't remember the name of the Sahabi but he (RadhiAllahu Anhu) said he could smell the fragrance of paradise before his death in the battleground. I don't mean to say that you feel you've done quite well and you stop doing anything more rather the love of Allah reaches a great level in your heart because of which you run headlong in doing righteous deeds. Its just a fearless attitude that grows inside of you as you understand the real meaning of life and have negligible concern for the life of this world.
