Land of death

Sairish Ahmed (Al Huda Student)
No! When the soul has reached the collar bones
And it is said, “Who will cure [him]?”
And the dying one is certain that it is the [time of] separation
And the leg is wound about the leg,
To your Lord, that Day, will be the procession. [Al Qiyamah:26-30]

What struck me most from Juz 29 was the description of how the soul will leave the body in Surah Al-Qiyamah (v. 26-30). It reminds me of a sister I used to know who passed away 2 years ago. May Allah SWT have mercy on her soul. ameen.
She was a cancer patient living in the US and the doctors had given the word to the family that she will not recover from her illness now. So the family, consisting of her husband and 3 children, decided to take the sister back to Pakistan for her last few days in the world. At the airport, some other sisters helped to get the sister to the airplane. As they helped her to get out from the taxi, they said that her legs were hanging from the wheelchair meaning that her soul had started to leave the body… (as we learn in verse 29 of Surah Al-Qiyamah).
Her flight to Pakistan consisted of a stop to England and then onwards to her destination. Before she reached the UK, her soul was completely taken out by the angel of death.
I learned from this incident that it can take 6-7 hours for a soul to completely come out of the body. And I also learned that it is not always on the earth, in some country that one can die, but even in the sky… if that is where your death is written, then that is where you will end up dying, no matter how much you want to die in a certain land. It is all in the Hands of Allah.

Allahumma a’ennee ‘ala ghamaratil mawt wa sakaratil mawt. Ameen
