Indeed death is an honor for every Muslim who meets Allah: Ibn Mubarak

Imam Ibn Mubarak said:

“Know O my brother that indeed death is an honour for every Muslim who meets Allaah whilst being upon the Sunnah, and truly to Allaah we belong, and truly to Him we shall return. And to Allaah do we complain about our loneliness, the passing away of the brothers, the scarcity of helpers and the emergence of bidah. And to Allaah do we complain about the magnitude of that which has occurred to this Ummah due to the passing away of the scholars and Ahlus Sunnah, and the emergence of bidah.

 

And I say as Ibraaheem At-Taymi said:

‘O Allaah! Protect me through your religion and the Sunnah of your Prophet from differing about the truth, and from following desires and the paths of misguidance, and from the Shubuhaat Al-Umoor –the affairs that are made to resemble truth but are falsehood in reality, and from deviation and (blameworthy) argumentation.”

[Kitaab Al-Itisaam of Imaam Ash-Shaatibee (rahimahullaah) page: 57]
