MARTYRDOM ON THE SEAS
Malakul Maut has been appointed to take the souls of all
creation except of the Shuhada who die on the high seas. Allah
Ta’ala confers a special rank of elevation (divine proximity) to
those who embark on a sea voyage on a Jihad mission. Allah
Ta’ala, Himself, takes possession of their souls.

FACTS REGARDING MALAKUL MAUT
Malakul Maut takes the souls of even mosquitoes.
Even blind people see Malakul Maut at the time of his
arrival.

Malakul Maut, i.e. Hadhrat Izraaeel (alayhis salaam)
has innumerable workers under him.

All creation whose maut is Izraaeel’s duty are in his
presence as a tray of food in front of a person who takes
morsels of food as he pleases.

Every sickness is a messenger to remind us of the
impending arrival of Malakul Maut.

THE WALI OF ALLAH
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “When Malakul
Maut comes to a Wali of Allah, he says: ‘O Friend (Wali) of
Allah!’ Then he offers Salaam. His Salaam is: ‘Assalaamu
alaika. O Wali of Allah! Rise and come from your (worldly)
abode which you have made desolate, (come) towards your
Home (in Jannat) which you have developed.” If the person is
not a Friend of Allah, Malakul Maut says to him: ‘Come from
your worldly abode which you have developed towards your
abode (in the Aakhirah) which you have ruined.”
