Yea, I wrote about death, really death, the thing that everyone will experiences, at least, once…

Related to my previous post – The Sole Purpose of Our Existence

If we take from the human perspective, there is so many definition about death, human will always use their large gifted, imagination, knowledge and thought, and more dramatic is from scientific view, but the question is, which one is the truth?

I would like to take The Words from Death Creator, The Only God, Allah,

Sura 02 – Ayat 28
Al-Baqarah (The Cow)

﴿كَيْفَ تَكْفُرُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَكُنتُمْ أَمْوَتًا فَأَحْيَـكُمْ ثُمَّ يُمِيتُكُمْ ثُمَّ يُحْيِيكُمْ ثُمَّ إِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ ﴾

(How can you disbelieve in Allah seeing that you were dead and He gave you life Then He will give you death, then again will bring you to life (on the Day of Resurrection) and then unto Him you will return.)

Tafsir :

Allah testifies to the fact that He exists and that He is the Creator and the Sustainer Who has full authority over His servants,

﴿كَيْفَ تَكْفُرُونَ بِاللَّهِ﴾

(How can you disbelieve in Allah)

How can anyone deny Allah’s existence or worship others with Him while;

﴿وَكُنتُمْ أَمْوَتًا فَأَحْيَـكُمْ﴾

(You were dead and He gave you life) meaning, He brought them from the state of non-existence to life. Similarly, Allah said,

﴿أَمْ خُلِقُواْ مِنْ غَيْرِ شَىْءٍ أَمْ هُمُ الْخَـلِقُونَ – أَمْ خَلَقُواْ السَّمَـوَتِ وَالاٌّرْضَ بَل لاَّ يُوقِنُونَ ﴾

(Were they created by nothing Or were they themselves the creators Or did they create the heavens and the earth Nay, but they have no firm belief) (52:35-36) and,

﴿هَلْ أَتَى عَلَى الإِنسَـنِ حِينٌ مِّنَ الدَّهْرِ لَمْ يَكُن شَيْئاً مَّذْكُوراً ﴾

(Has there not been over man a period of time, when he was not a thing worth mentioning) (76:1).

There are many other Ayat on this subject. Ibn Jarir reported from `Ata’ that Ibn `Abbas said that,

﴿وَكُنتُمْ أَمْوَتًا فَأَحْيَـكُمْ﴾

(Seeing that you were dead and He gave you life) means, “You did not exist beforehand. You were nothing until Allah created you; He will bring death to you and then bring you back to life during Resurrection.” Ibn `Abbas then said, “This is similar to Allah’s statement;

﴿قَالُواْ رَبَّنَآ أَمَتَّنَا اثْنَتَيْنِ وَأَحْيَيْتَنَا اثْنَتَيْنِ﴾

(They will say: “Our Lord! You have made us to die twice and You have given us life twice.”) (40:11)”

And death is actually are creature created by Allah, from hadith,

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “On the Day of Resurrection death will be brought forward in the shape of a black and white ram. Then a call maker will call, ‘O people of Jannah!’ Thereupon they will stretch their necks and look carefully. The caller will say, ‘Do you know this?’ They will say, ‘Yes, this is death.’ By then all of them will have seen it. Then it will be announced again, ‘O people of Jahannum!’ They will stretch their necks and look carefully. The caller will say, ‘Do you know this?’ They will say, ‘Yes, this is death.’ And by then all of them will have seen it. Then it (that ram) will be slaughtered and the caller will say, ‘O people of Jannah! Eternity for you and no death. O people of Jahannum! Eternity for you and no death.’” Then the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) recited: “And warn them of the Day of Distress when the case has been decided, while (now) they are in a state of carelessness (i.e. the people of the world) and they do not believe. (Quran 19:39)” [Sahih Bukhari]
