And I Wanted To See You All Again

May 14, 2011

I’ve heard a lot of stories like this and I can only guess that it is the angel of Death that they see.

At the same time, I have witnessed others who are fully prepared for death and relax into it. One man in particular got up from bed in the morning, asked for his favorite clothes to be prepared and his favorite breakfast (very simple rice porridge with fish) and then asked for some friends from the community to come and visit. He simply rested back in his chair and said “I’m so glad you could all come. I’m going to die today and I wanted to see you all again.” Then, being Muslim, he recited the confession of faith “There is only one God and Muhammad is his messenger” and then died peacefully.

I think that death comes with two faces, those who are prepared for death and are at peace with themselves see the beautiful and shining face but those who fear death and have conflict within themselves see the dark and harsh face.

Regardless, the Angel is the same.
