Beware of sudden death

Shaykh Saalih al-Fowzaan said:

Towards the end of time – and pay attention to this – [towards] the end of time, sudden death will increase.

You are in good health and strength, and in [the prime of] youth, then suddenly you die; either in a car accident, or a heart attack, or any sudden cause. And how prevalent is this [nowadays], and you are witnessing it and hearing about it.

So we must increase in repentance and seeking forgiveness [from Allaah], and not forget the Hereafter, and nor should we forget death, and nor should we forget the accountability [for all our deeds].

Then on the Day of Judgement there will be scales upon which our deeds will be weighed, [as Allaah says]:

{And those whose scales are heavy…} [023:102]

…meaning with good deeds, [then Allaah says]:

{…it is they who are the successful. But those whose scales are light…} [023:102-103]

…[meaning their] sins overwhelm their good deeds, [then Allaah says]:

{…those are the ones who have lost their souls, [being] in Hell, abiding eternally.} [023:103]

…then they are the ones who have lost their souls. They have not lost their wealth, but lost their souls. Their reward is in Hell. [Will that be] a day or two? No, [it shall be] forever [therein]…eternally forever. And there is no might nor power except with Allaah.
