Muslim Center: Hi all readers! In the previous article I have quoted a little information about the tree under Arsy. The tree has a big secret about the fate of all beings. As Muslims we really need to know about it. I will explain that briefly on the theme of this article.
As usual, I will quote information in the Daqaaiqu al-Akhbaar fii Dzikri al-Jannati wa an-Naar to explain the great secrets of the tree. In the book explained, that Ka’ab al-Ahbar said, “Verily Allah Ta’ala has created a tree under Arsy. Above it was as many leaves as all creatures. If the death of a servant has been exhausted and his age is only left forty days, then the leaf will fall on the side of Izrail (the angel of death). He then knew that it was an order to revoke the spirit of its owner. After that they (the angels) refer to that person as a deceased (person who has died) in the sky even though that person still lives on earth. “
Abu Laits radliyallaahu ‘anhu said, “Surely two drops of water will fall from under ‘Arsy on the name of the owner of the sheet. One of them is green and the other is white. If the green drops fall on anyone’s name, then it is certain that he is a miserable person. But if the white drops fall on behalf of anyone, then it is certain that he is a happy person.”
All Readers! If we understand the two narrations above, then we can at least conclude a number of things as follows;
- The number of leaves under the tree is as many as the number of creatures that ever lived in the world, from the beginning of the creation of the world until the Day of Judgment. The leaf contains information about the death of all beings.
- If someone dies, then the leaves of the tree which contains the death of that person will fall to the angel of death, Izrail; it is a command to the grim reaper that he take the life of that person.
- After the leaf falls, the person will be called a dead person in the sky, even though he is still alive in the world.
- There are two types of water that will drip from under Arsy. Of the two types of drops of water that’s the fate of someone in the afterlife can be known.
All Readers! that’s a brief explanation of the theme of this article. May be useful! Amen
See you in the next article!
