Fear of death

yarehman ya raheem

A spiritual seeker (mureed) wrote,

I become very anxious when I remember death. I don’t feel that I’m ready to die yet. How can I develop more hope in Allah’s mercy? What do you feel about your old age and closeness to death?

Sheikh Sayyid Muhammad Abdul-Wahid  (Allah have mercy on him) replied,

Death is a natural process like the rising and setting of the sun is. Fear of death is normal and almost everyone has it. You can pray for your longevity and end with faith. In order to invoke Allah’s mercy, you should say countless times during the day “ya reHman, ya reHiym”.
