8. The souls are taken away during the sleep


Surah No. 39, Az Zumar, Ayat No. 42

للَّهُ يَتَوَفَّى الْأَنفُسَ حِينَ مَوْتِهَا وَالَّتِي لَمْ تَمُتْ فِي مَنَامِهَا فَيُمْسِكُ الَّتِي قَضَى عَلَيْهَا

o الْمَوْتَ وَيُرْسِلُ الْأُخْرَى إِلَى أَجَلٍ مُسَمًّى إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ

Translation :

Allah takes away souls at the time of the death, and those, who do not die, (their souls) are taken away in their sleep. He keeps that (soul) for which He has ordained death and releases the rest till an appointed term. In fact ! these are the signs for those who think deeply.
