Reciting Laa ilaha illallah at the time of death is not as easy as the movie scenes! At the time of death shaitaan will organise his biggest deception & fitnah to make sure we do NOT recite Laa ilaha illallah. Unless our whole life is being led according to this kalimah (not just lip service), we will find that its very difficult to recite the kalimah. Some doctors has said that some of their muslims patients at the time of death couldnt recite Laa ilaha illallah successfully. Ulema have even observed muslims singing while in the throes of death, others talking about their wealth. Make duah that Almighty Allah will give us the kalimah upon our death.
Many times it is has been said 'you will die the way you lived'.

It was narrated from Anas that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) visited a man from among the Ansaar when he was sick and he said: “O maternal uncle, say Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah.” He said: “Maternal uncle or paternal uncle?” He said: “Maternal uncle.” He said: “Is it better for me to say it?’ He said: “Yes.” Narrated by Ahmad, 13414. Al-Albaani said in Ahkaam al-Janaa’iz: its isnaad is saheeh

Abu Sa'id al-Khudri reported Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) as saying:
Exhort to recite" There is no god but Allah" to those of you who are dying. Sahih Muslim 916
Book 11, Hadith 1 (Book of Prayers)

In 634 CE
Khalid bin Waleed
The Sword of Allah
saved nearly 2000 muslim women from being raped by roman soldiers

The captured roman soldiers were mercilessly beheaded!

Khalid bin Waleed a Companion of the Messenger of Allah...he is regarded as one of the finest military commanders in history

A letter was written by Khalid to the Persian Governor of Mesopotamia

“Submit to Islam and be safe. Or agree to the payment of the Jizya, and you and your people will be under our protection, else you will have only yourself to blame for the consequences, for I bring the men who desire death as ardently as you desire life.”......

Umm Ayman Barakah (r.a) was the Abyssinian nurse of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) whom he emancipated. He said Umm Ayman was 'his mother' after his mother Amina passed away, and referred to her as the 'woman of Paradise'. She was among the first to accept Islam.She married Hadrat Zaid bin Harithah (r.a) and was the mother of Usama bin Zaid (r.a). After the Prophet (SAW) passed away, following his tradition, Sayidina Abu Bakr as Siddiq (r.a) and Sayidina Umar al-Faruq (r.a) also considered her just like their mother and used to visit her.

Umm Mihjan (r.a) she was a sahabiya of African descent who used to sweep the Masjid an-Nabawi in Madina. When the Prophet (SAW) did not see her, he enquired about her and was told that she passed away and was buried. The Prophet (SAW) went to her grave to pray for her. This shows that he did not distinguish between the rich and the poor, or between the black or the white. His main concern is that people should accept Islam and acquire piety...

Ooh, cool thread. Bring on the Islamic Factoids! :D

Did you Know: The entirety of creation will be in the hand of Allah on the Day of Judgement (literally).

Abdullah b. Mas'ud reported that a Jewish scholar came to Allah's Apostle (may peace he upon him) and said: "Muhammad, or Abu al-Qasim, verily, Allah, the Exalted and Glorious would carry the Heavens on the Day of Judgment upon one finger and earths upon one finger and the mountains and trees upon one finger and the ocean and moist earth upon one finger, and in fact the whole of the creation upon one finger, and then He would stir them and say: "I am your Lord, I am your Lord." Thereupon Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) smiled, testifying what that scholar had said. He then recited this verse: "And they honor not Allah with the honor due to Him; and the whole earth will be in His grip on the Day of Resurrection and the heaven rolled up in His right hand. Glory be to Him I and highly Exalted is He above what they associate (with Him)" (Quran 39:67).

Allah is not the God of Muslims only. He is the God of all people and all creation. Just because people refer to God using different terms does not mean that they are different gods. Spanish people refer to God as "Dios" and French people refer to God as "Dieu", yet they are all the same God. Interestingly, most Arab Jews and Arab Christians refer to God as "Allah". And the word Allah in Arabic appears on the walls of many Arab churches.

The Islamic concept of God is that He is loving, merciful, and compassionate. But Islam also teaches that He is just and swift in punishment. Nevertheless, Allah once said to Prophet Muhammad, "My mercy prevails over my wrath." Islam teaches a balance between fear and hope, protecting one from both complacency and despair.

Muslims do not believe in the concept of "vicarious atonement" but rather believe in the law of personal responsibility. Islam teaches that each person is responsible for his or her own actions. On the Day of Judgment Muslims believe that every person will be resurrected and will have to answer to God for their every word, thought, and deed. Consequently, a practicing Muslim is always striving to be righteous.

The word "jihad" does not mean "holy war". Instead, it means the inner struggle that one endures in trying to submit their will to the will of God. Some Muslims may say they are going for "jihad" when fighting in a war to defend themselves or their fellow Muslims, but they only say this because they are conceding that it will be a tremendous struggle. But there are many other forms of jihad, which are more relevant to the everyday life of a Muslim such as the struggles against laziness, arrogance, stinginess, or the struggle against a tyrant ruler or against the temptation of Satan, or against one's own ego, etc.

Ismat ad-Din Khatun

Ismat ad-Din was also the name of the Mamluk sultana more commonly known as Shajar al-Durr.ʿIṣmat ad-Dīn Khātūn (Arabic: '''عصمة الدين خاتون'''; died January 26, 1186), also known as Asimat, was the daughter of Mu'in ad-Din Unur, regent of Damascus, and wife of two of the greatest Muslim generals of the 12th century, Nur ad-Din Zangi and Saladin.

Ismat ad-Din is a laqab (the descriptive part of an Arabic name) meaning "purity of the faith"; Khatun is an honorific meaning "lady" or "noblewoman". Her given name (ism) is unknown. Her father became regent of Damascus in 1138, and ruled the city on behalf of a series of young emirs of the Burid dynasty. During this time, Damascus's chief rivals to the north, Aleppo and Mosul, were united under the rule of the Zengid dynasty. Damascus had maintained an unsteady alliance with the crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem, but in 1147, Mu'in ad-Din negotiated an alliance with the Zengid emir of Aleppo, Nur ad-Din, who married Ismat ad-Din as part of the agreement. The next year, the Second Crusade besieged Damascus, and Mu'in ad-Din was forced to recognize Nur ad-Din, who had come to his rescue against the crusaders, as overlord of the city. Ismat ad-Din Khatun's father died in 1149 and her husband gained complete control over Damascus by 1154.

When Nur ad-Din died in 1174, King Amalric I of Jerusalem took advantage of the situation and besieged the city of Banias. Ismat offered him a bribe to lift the siege, but, hoping for a larger offer, Amalric continued the siege for two weeks, until finally accepting the money along with the release of twenty Christian prisoners. William of Tyre describes Ismat as having "courage beyond that of most women" in this matter. Nur ad-Din's general Saladin had meanwhile gained control over Egypt, and claimed Damascus as his successor; he legitimized this claim by marrying Ismat at-Din in 1176. She was apparently not his only wife. However, by the time she died in 1186, Saladin was writing letters to her every day; as he was himself recovering from a lengthy illness at the time, news of her death was kept from him for three months.

She had no children with either Nur ad-Din or Saladin. In Damascus she was the patron of numerous religious buildings, including a madrasa and a mausoleum for her father. She was buried in the Jamaa' al-Jadid in Damascus.

I think there is a certain irony to this, seeing as a lot of Muslim preachers like talking about striving for the hereafter rather than the dunya.

Muslim women wear the head covering (hijab) in fulfillment of God's decree to dress modestly. From a practical standpoint, it serves to identify one as attempting to follow God in daily life and, therefore, protects women from unwanted advances from men. Righteous women throughout history have worn this type of modest dress. Prominent examples are traditional Catholic Nuns, Mother Teresa and the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus.
