Concept of death in Islam -1
As we are all aware of, death is inevitable. However much we may try to close our eyes to this reality deep within our hearts we are all sure that all of us shall meet our end, sooner or later. The more easily we accept the reality of death the better it is for us. However much one gets lost in the maze of materialistic desires and worldly pleasures a time will come when we will have to renounce everything, whether it is our near and dear ones or our worldly possessions and leave this stage of life. This proves the transitory nature of life.
We have been sent in this world for a fixed time by Allah (swt). The entire mankind has been created by Allah (swt) to worship him. Allah (swt) says, “I have not created men and jinn except to worship Me.” Surah 51 Al Dhariyat. So we are here primarily to worship our creator and since life is transitory so we can compare it to a journey. Allah (swt) says in the Quran, "Every soul shall have a taste of death. And only on the Day of Judgment shall you be paid your full recompense." 3:185.
So, based on our actions in this world we shall be rewarded or punished in the life hereafter. Therefore, the journey of life is compared to an examination hall. The moment we die the exam will be over and we shall be assessed on basis of our performance. We might have witnessed during umpteen exams that some students plead for some more time so that they can answer a few more questions but the examiner snatches away their answering sheet. Similarly, we will also not get a second chance to appease Allah (swt). Whatever time we have been given in this world has to be utilized in the best possible way to fair well in the exam called life.
