Hi all readers! In the previous article, I explained the dialogue of the spirit and angel of death. In this article, I will explain the words of body when spirit will be revoked. He says it to the angel of death when he will pull out his spirit. This is a very important explanation and can be our motivation to always do good.
In a hadith it is explained, that if Allah wants to uproot the soul of believer, then angel of death comes to the side of the servant’s mouth. Dhikr then came out of his mouth and said, “You have no way here. He always does dhikr to my Lord.” The angel wants to go to Allah and say, “O my Lord, indeed Your servant says like this and like this.” Allah then said, “Revoke the spirit from the other side!”
Angel of death then came to the side of servant’s hand. Then Sadaqah appeared from his hand and said, “You have no way here. Really, he often uses me to give alms, rub the heads of orphans, write using a pen, and use a sword to chop off the necks of infidels.”
Angel of death came to the side of the servant’s feet. His feet then said, “You have no way here. Indeed, he has used me to walk to Jamaah prayer, to pray ‘Id, and to attend scientific assemblies.”
Angel of death came to the side of the servant’s ear. His ear then said, “You have no way from my side. Really, he has used me to listen to Quran, Adhan and Dhikr.”
Angel of death came to servant’s eyes. The two servant’s eyes then said, “You have no way from our side. Really, he has used us to see the Manuscripts, the faces of the scholars, his parents, and righteous people.”
Then angel of death came to meet Allah Taala and said, “O my Lord, verily Your servants say like this and like this.” Allah Taala then said, “O angel of death, write my name in your hand and show it to my servant’s spirit so that he may see it and come out.”
Angel of death then wrote Allah’s name in his hand and showed it to servant’s spirit. The spirit then answered the call and came out of his body with the blessing of Allah’s name. He did not feel the bitterness of Naza.
All Readers! If we understand the brief explanation above, surely, we understand, that the defense carried out by the body is the result of a servant’s good deeds. Dhikr, being compassionate, loving orphans, attending assemblies of knowledge, listening to reading Quran, Jamaah prayer, etc. are good deeds that will benefit for people who want to do it all.
All parts of body that are used to do good in order to give a defense to its owner at any time, especially when the angel of death will pull out his spirit.
That is a brief explanation of words of body when the spirit will be revoked. May be useful! Amen!
