14. Belief in Death and Hereafter


Surah No.3 , Al Imraan, Ayat No.145


وَمَا كَانَ لِنَفۡسٍ اَنۡ تَمُوۡتَ اِلَّا بِاِذۡنِ اللّٰهِ كِتٰبًا مُّؤَجَّلًا
 وَ مَنۡ يُّرِدۡ ثَوَابَ الدُّنۡيَا نُؤۡتِه مِنۡهَا  

ۚ وَمَنۡ يُّرِدۡ ثَوَابَ الۡاٰخِرَةِ نُؤۡتِه مِنۡهَا

‌وَسَنَجۡزِى الشّٰكِرِيۡنَ 

Translation :

And no person can ever die except by Allah's decree ; and its appointed time is also prescribed.  And he who desires his reward in this world, We shall grant him the reward of this world; and he who desires the reward in the hereafter, We shall grant him the reward in the hereafter.  And soon shall We reward the ones who are grateful.

Surah No. 3, Al Imraan, Ayat No. 185


كُلُّ نَفۡسٍ ذَآٮِٕقَةُ الۡمَوۡتِ‌ وَاِنَّمَا تُوَفَّوۡنَ اُجُوۡرَكُمۡ يَوۡمَ الۡقِيٰمَةِ‌ فَمَنۡ زُحۡزِحَ عَنِ النَّارِ وَاُدۡخِلَ الۡجَـنَّةَ فَقَدۡ فَازَ ‌ وَمَا الۡحَيٰوةُ الدُّنۡيَاۤ اِلَّا مَتَاعُ الۡغُرُوۡرِ‏

كُلُّ نَفْسٍ ذَآئِقَةُ الْمَوْتِ

Translation :

Everyone is bound to taste death and you shall receive your full reward on the Day of Resurrection. Then, whoever is spared the Fire and is admitted to Paradise has indeed been successful. The life of this world is merely an illusory enjoyment.

Surah No. 4, An Nisa, part of Ayat No. 78

أَيْنَمَا تَكُونُواْ يُدْرِككُّمُ الْمَوْتُ وَلَوْ كُنتُمْ فِي بُرُوجٍ مُّشَيَّدَةٍ
Translation :

"Wherever you are, death will find you out, even if you are in strong fortress " (you cannot escape death)

Surah No. 29, Al Ankaboot, Ayat No. 57

o كُلُّ نَفْسٍ ذَائِقَةُ الْمَوْتِ ثُمَّ إِلَيْنَا تُرْجَعُونَ

Translation :

Every soul shall have a taste of death: in the end you shall be brought back to Us.
