SHAFAQNA – Imam Hadi (AS) was asked: Why some Muslims fear death, and do not like it? Imam Hadi (AS) replied: Because they are unaware of the reality of death, and that is why they fear it and do not like it; but if they knew it properly and were friends of God, they would have liked it and would have realised that the hereafter is better than this brief and transient world. Imam Hadi (AS) added: If these unaware people knew that to what blessings and good ending death will lead them, they would have requested it more than that of a wise person who requests medicine for his/her health and well being from illnesses .
