SIGNS OF A BEAUTIFUL MAUT
Taufeeq is to render good deeds is a sign of the bounty of a beautiful
Maut. It is said in the Hadith: “When Allah Ta’ala desires
goodness for a person, He sends an Angel to that person one year
before his Maut. The Angel exhorts him to do acts of virtue. He
thus dies with goodness. People then praise such a person who has
died in this manner.
When the time of his Maut arrives, he sees the bounties which
Allah has prepared for him. He thus desires to attain those
bounties. At that moment he loves to meet Allah, and Allah loves
to meet him.
When Allah wills evil for a person, He appoints for that person
a shaitaan one year before his death. This shaitaan deceives and
misleads him. He then dies in the worst of states.
May Allah Ta’ala save us.
