"Wheresoever you may be, death will overtake you even if you are in fortresses built up strong and high!" Quran 4:78
All of us, regardless of race, color, religion or nationality, want to know the answer to this question: "What will happen to me when I die?"
The Holy Quran is the actual speech of God Almighty to the Last of the Prophets (Muhammad, peace be upon him). As such it provides us with the real insight of life and death from the very One who did create all of us in the first place.
The following commentary concerns a verse in the fourth chapter of the Quran, entitled "The Women", verse number 78.
The Death of Death
Abu Hurayra reported that Allah's Messenger, peace be upon him, said:
"After the people of Paradise enter Paradise and the People of the Fire enter Hell, Death will be brought foreword in the form of a spotted ram. It will be on the wall which separates the people of Paradise from the people of the Fire.
Then it will be said: 'O people of Paradise!' Thereupon they will raise their heads and stare apprehensively.
Then it will be said: 'O people of the Fire!' Whereupon its inhabitants will raise their heads in hope of intercession. After this the people of Paradise and the inhabitants of the Fire will be addressed thus: 'Do you know what this is?'
They will all reply: 'We know it; it is Death, which assigned to us.'
Thereupon Death will be placed on its side and slaughtered on the wall.
Finally it will be said: 'O people of Paradise, only eternity and no more death. O people of the Fire, only eternity and more death.'"
