“Death takes from among us, the young and the old, the men and the women, the righteous scholars and the corrupt. It snatches everyone and the return of all is to the One. It is among the reminders sent forth by God.
“Death is a gift for the doer of good and oft repentant. In it is everything that he seeks and desires. Meeting with the most Benevolent is his glory and elevation. It is for him felicity in which there is no misery.”
Sayyidina Bilal expressed at his death:
واطرباه، واطرباه، غداً ألقى الأحبة محمداً وحزبه، صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وصحبه وسلم.
“O what joy! Oh what joy! Tomorrow we meet with the beloved Muhammad and his party.””
