The main points of Ayah 8 of Surah Al-Jom’ah as described by Imam Sadeq (AS)

SHAFAQNA – Ayah 8 of Surah Al-Jom’ah says: “Say: Death from which you escape will truly overtake you; then you will be sent back to the Knower of all things secret and open; and God will tell you (the truth of) things that you did (in the world).” It is narrated from Imam Sadeq (AS) who regarding this holy verse (Ayah) said: (Death) counts the years, then counts the months, then counts the days, then counts the hours, and then counts the number of each breath. Then, when the time for their deaths arrives, they can neither delay it for a second nor overtake it [1]. This is a warning for all the human beings at all the times that death is a reality, and will happen at its allocated time for every individual, and the human being has no control over it.
