Dying before death

A mureed narrated his dream:

“I saw as though I have died and people have burried me”.

Sayyidi wa sanadi Hazrat Mawlana Mohammad Taqi Usmani shaib db replied:

“It seems to be an elucidation of the phrase:

موتو قبل ان تموتو

(Die before the death).”

Islahi khutoot

That is, it is an instruction to work towards this annihilation of all that may result in destruction in hereafter.
