The Moment of Death

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

(25:22) The day they see the angels – no good tidings will there be that day for the criminals, and [the angels] will say, “Prevented and inaccessible.”
(25:23) And We will regard what they have done of deeds and make them as dust dispersed.
(25:24) The companions of Paradise, that Day, are [in] a better settlement and better resting place.

(16:28) The ones whom the angels take in death [while] wronging themselves, and [who] then offer submission, [saying], “We were not doing any evil.” But, yes! Indeed, Allah is Knowing of what you used to do.
(16:29) So enter the gates of Hell to abide eternally therein, and how wretched is the residence of the arrogant.

(16:32) The ones whom the angels take in death, [being] good and pure; [the angels] will say, “Peace be upon you. Enter Paradise for what you used to do.”

(79:1) By those [angels] who extract with violence
(79:2) And [by] those who remove with ease
(79:3) And [by] those who glide [as if] swimming
(79:4) And those who race each other in a race
(79:5) And those who arrange [each] matter,
(79:6) On the Day the blast [of the Horn] will convulse [creation],
(79:7) There will follow it the subsequent [one].
(79:8) Hearts, that Day, will tremble,
(79:9) Their eyes humbled.
(79:10) They are [presently] saying, “Will we indeed be returned to [our] former state [of life]?
(79:11) Even if we should be decayed bones?
(79:12) They say, “That, then, would be a losing return.”
(79:13) Indeed, it will be but one shout,
(79:14) And suddenly they will be [alert] upon the earth’s surface.

(8:50) And if you could but see when the angels take the souls of those who disbelieved… They are striking their faces and their backs and [saying], “Taste the punishment of the Burning Fire.
(8:51) That is for what your hands have put forth [of evil] and because Allah is not ever unjust to His servants.”

(4:97) Indeed, those whom the angels take [in death] while wronging themselves – [the angels] will say, “In what [condition] were you?” They will say, “We were oppressed in the land.” The angels will say, “Was not the earth of Allah spacious [enough] for you to emigrate therein?” For those, their refuge is Hell – and evil it is as a destination.
(4:98) Except for the oppressed among men, women and children who cannot devise a plan nor are they directed to a way –
(4:99) For those it is expected that Allah will pardon them, and Allah is ever Pardoning and Forgiving.

(6:93) And who is more unjust than one who invents a lie about Allah or says, “It has been inspired to me,” while nothing has been inspired to him, and one who says, “I will reveal [something] like what Allah revealed.” And if you could but see when the wrongdoers are in the overwhelming pangs of death while the angels extend their hands, [saying], “Discharge your souls! Today you will be awarded the punishment of [extreme] humiliation for what you used to say against Allah other than the truth and [that] you were, toward His verses, being arrogant.”
(6:94) [It will be said to them], “And you have certainly come to Us alone as We created you the first time, and you have left whatever We bestowed upon you behind you. And We do not see with you your ‘intercessors’ which you claimed that they were among you associates [of Allah ]. It has [all] been severed between you, and lost from you is what you used to claim.”

(23:99) [For such is the state of the disbelievers], until, when death comes to one of them, he says, “My Lord, send me back
(23:100) That I might do righteousness in that which I left behind.” No! It is only a word he is saying; and behind them is a barrier until the Day they are resurrected.

(47:27) Then how [will it be] when the angels take them in death, striking their faces and their backs?
(47:28) That is because they followed what angered Allah and disliked [what earns] His pleasure, so He rendered worthless their deeds.

(50:16) And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein.
(50:17) When the two receivers [angels] receive, seated on the right and on the left.
(50:18) Man does not utter any word except that with him is an observer prepared [to record].
(50:19) And the intoxication of death will bring the truth; that is what you were trying to avoid.

(75:22) On that Day, some faces shall be bright,
(75:23) looking towards their Lord (Rabb).
(75:24) And on that Day some faces shall be gloomy,
(75:25) thinking that some backbreaking calamity is about to be inflicted on them.
(75:26) Nay, when a man’s soul is about to leave and reaches to the throat,
(75:27) and those around him cry: “Is there any enchanter to help?”
(75:28) Then man will conclude that it was the time of departure (from the world)
(75:29) while one leg will twist around the other leg;
(75:30) that will be the Day of driving towards your Lord (Rabb).

(17:58) And there is no city but that We will destroy it before the Day of Resurrection or punish it with a severe punishment. That has ever been in the Register inscribed.

(32:11) Say, “The angel of death will take you who has been entrusted with you. Then to your Lord you will be returned.”
(32:12) If you could but see when the criminals are hanging their heads before their Lord, [saying], “Our Lord, we have seen and heard, so return us [to the world]; we will work righteousness. Indeed, we are [now] certain.”
(32:13) And if we had willed, We could have given every soul its guidance, but the word from Me will come into effect [that] “I will surely fill Hell with jinn and people all together.
(32:14) So taste [punishment] because you forgot the meeting of this, your Day; indeed, We have [accordingly] forgotten you. And taste the punishment of eternity for what you used to do.”
(32:15) Only those believe in Our verses who, when they are reminded by them, fall down in prostration and exalt [ Allah ] with praise of their Lord, and they are not arrogant.
(32:16) They arise from [their] beds; they supplicate their Lord in fear and aspiration, and from what We have provided them, they spend.
(32:17) And no soul knows what has been hidden for them of comfort for eyes as reward for what they used to do.
