Exclusive Cure for Death… for the Awliya of Allah SWT

A man once asked Ka’b, “Which illness cannot be treated?” “Death”, he replied. The son of Zayd b. Aslam [d136H] said:

My father said, “There is one treatment for death: gaining the pleasure of Allah ‘azza wa jall.”

[Ibn Abî Al-Dunyâ in Dhikr Al-Mawt no. 418.]

Allah SWT says (interpretation of the meaning):

“No doubt! Verily, the Awliya’ [close friends] of Allah, no fear shall come upon them nor shall they grieve.  Those who believed, and used to fear Allah much (by abstaining from evil deeds and sins and by doing righteous deeds). For them are glad tidings, in the life of the present world, and in the Hereafter. No change can there be in the Words of Allah. This is indeed the supreme success.

[Surat Yunus 10:62-64]

Al-Haafidz Ibn Katheer (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

Here Allah is telling us that His close friends are those who believe and are pious, as their Lord describes them. So everyone who is pious is a friend of Allah. “No fear shall come upon them” means with regard to what they encounter of the terrors of the resurrection. “Nor shall they grieve” means for what they have left behind them in this world.

[Tafseer al-Qur’aan al-‘Adzeem, 4/278]

It was narrated from ‘Ubaadah ibn al-Saamit that the Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) said:

“Whoever loves to meet Allah, Allah loves to meet him, and whoever hates to meet Allah, Allah hates to meet him.” Aa’ishah or one of his wives said: We hate death. He said: “It is not like that. When the believer is dying, he is given the glad tidings of the pleasure and honour of Allah, and nothing is dearer to him than that which is ahead of him, and he loves to meet Allah and Allah loves to meet him. But when the disbeliever is dying, he is given tidings of the punishment and wrath of Allah, and nothing is more hated to him than what is ahead of him, and he hates to meet Allah and Allah hates to meet him.”

[Narrated by al-Bukhaari (6507) and Muslim (2683). ]

Al-Qurtubi (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

“This dislike of death is a natural dislike which stems from a feeling of aversion, which is difficult to bear. Undoubtedly it exists in everyone, except the one who Allah blesses with love for Him and he realized the beauty of being close to Him. That person’s love for Allah overwhelms him and he will say when it is his time to depart this world, addressing death and its agonies, as Mu’aadh (may Allah be pleased with him) said: A beloved one has come at a time most needed, and the one who has any regrets today will never prosper, so take my soul as You will, for by You, my hearts loves You.”

[al-Mufhim, 2/644]

***

“Verily, those who have believed, and those who have emigrated (for Allah’s religion) and have striven hard in the way of Allah, all these hope for Allaah’s Mercy”

[al-Baqarah 2:218]
