Does it matter which day of the year a believer dies?


SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from the Prophet of Islam (PBUH) who said: Allah (SWT) has allocated special favours and blessings in some days [1].  Aban ibn Taqlib narrated from Imam Sadeq (AS) who said: The person who dies between midday/noon on Thursday until midday/noon on Friday, Allah (SWT) will save that person from the torment of the grave [2]. According to above narrations, Friday could be one of those days with special Divine Blessings, or the Month of Ramadhan which according to the Prophet (PBUH) is the month of Divine Mercy and Divine Forgiveness [3].
