Hadith Explanation

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “He whose last words are, ‘La ilaha il Allah’ (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah), will enter Paradise.” [Abu Dawud]

This hadith is like a password given away. Is it really this easy to enter the beautiful land of everlasting happiness? Sometimes death comes after an illness when it is anticipated, sometimes it comes unannounced. Regardless, a Momin is blessed with the ability to die on the kalima (La ilaha il Allah). This is because a Momin has lived his/her life on the kalima and the fact is that a person dies on the same that he/she has lived on.

A pious man was called to make dua for an old man on his deathbed. When the man entered the house of the dieing person he was surprised to hear loud music being played. He admonished the relatives, “Is this the time to be listening to the instruments of the Shaitaan? Why do you not recite the Quran and ask the dieing one to recite the kalima?” Accordingly, the music was turned off and a recording of the recitation of the Quran played instead. On hearing the Quran, the dieing man spoke up asking for it to be turned off saying it troubled him, and he insisted for the female singer’s cassette to be played again as it soothed his heart. Thus, the person died listening to what he had spent his life listening to.
