'Death'- according to the Holy Qur’an E-mail

In the Holy Qur'an, interesting and varied interpretations have been made, regarding death, the study of all the aspects of which, shall become very elaborate, hence we suffice by mentioning a few of the beautiful and expressive interpretations, which have appeared in some of the verses.

1. Meeting with Allàh

The Holy Qur’àn, in the last verse of the Surah Kahf, has expressed death as a meeting with Allàh and says:

“So whoever desires to meet his Lord, he should do good deeds and not associate anyone in the worship of his Lord.” (Holy Quran - 18:110)

2. Return to Allàh

Another interpretation which the Holy Qur’àn has and which makes clear the reality of death, is  “return to Allàh”.  However, the Islamic philosophers, regarding the manner of the creation of the entities (and amongst them, man) by Allàh and after then, their return towards Allàh,  have subtle, profound and interesting theories.  The Holy Qur’àn says:

“Verily, we are Allàh's and verily to Him shall we return.” (Holy Quran - 2:156)

3. Seizing of the Soul

One of the beautiful interpretations of the Holy Qur’àn in the matter of death is(توفّى).  This word means seizing a thing in its entirety.  Hence, according to the verse under consideration, the reality of death is that the angels commissioned to take the soul, seize the entire personality of man at the time of death, and remove it from the captivity of the body.  They, then carry it to the Divine Presence:

“Say: the Angel of Death who is given charge of you shall cause you to die, then to your Lord you shall be brought back.” (Holy Quran - 32:11)
