Is death that bad?

Can you imagine that we will never die in this world? Can you imagine that this limited world, which seems to be limitless in almost every aspect, with its problems of trials and questions that are difficult to solve, is a continuous life?

Hope is what keeps people alive. A hope that reaches tomorrow, where the troubles are over, where the test is over, where there is peace, where the invitation to “Come on, enter Paradise” comes.

Thinking about loving death from this perspective opens a separate and refreshing window. From the window that opens, keeping our feet here, looking forward and getting hopeful, making plans, getting energized, saying bismillah (in the name of Allah) with a new but fresh excitement.

A disease, an event, I don’t know, something that makes you very sad, extremely disturbed; would you want to live an eternal life with it, if you were given the will? I am sure you would say “No” with a strong reaction. What is the remedy for this anxious state, if not death?

In order not to rely too much on life in the direction of the advice “Die before you die”, the ancestors saw the mortal labels on things and events and did not put their hopes on it, but only saw it as a means, as a cause.

The human being, who is very fond of novelty and change, wants to get rid of the repetitive pages of this world, even if they go on forever because there is pain in them, and that is why death is understood as a blessing.

Every task that ends brings relief to the human being. Death is the end of the task of life. It is the expression that life, which is dependent on many things, and the heavy ties and burdens of the body are over. If the transition from plant life to animal life and then to human life is a stepping stone, death is a stepping stone from the life of this world to the life of the hereafter.

Just as the seed buried in the soil, which rots and changes in the visible world and gives rise to hyacinth, is instrumental in the beginning of a new life, death is the gateway to a life incomparably more magnificent than this one.

It is a blessing to even think that that period of life, such as old age, which is in some ways the harshest conditions of life, ends with death. And can you imagine that you have elderly people in your home who are so old that they don’t even know their age, and how heavy a responsibility you have to take care of them? From this point of view, isn’t death a mercy for them and for you?

When a person falls asleep, he cannot feel the troubles of the waking world, and even if he does, he feels very little of them. Death is the older brother of sleep. Death, which covers troubles and draws a veil over them, is worth loving from this point of view

A human being sets out by giving his most precious and cherished thing to someone he trusts. It is only through death that we can meet and be friends with Azrail (the angel of death), to whom we will entrust our most precious possession, such as the soul, on the journey to the hereafter. Loving him for the sake of our most precious possession and establishing a friendship with death, which brings us closer to him, should be the profit of people who think about their future.

No matter how much we talk about it, we should not forget that it is a greater blessing to be able to say, “Praise God, we are going to die” and to continue life here with consciousness and effort…

As Master Nursi says: “Death is a discharge from the duties of life; it is a rest, a change of residence, a change of existence; it is an invitation to an eternal life, a beginning, the introduction to an immortal life”
