Wherever you may be, death will overtake you, even if you are in high protected towers.
Death is a reality every single living creature will experience. No one’s health, wealth, status, or riches every saved them from dying and being buried with nothing:
Everyone upon the earth will perish.
— Quran 55:26
To a Muslim, Allah is the Almighty, Creator and Sustainer of the universe, Who is similar to nothing and nothing is comparable to Him. God states in the Quran for those who make Him like His creation or vice versa:
There is nothing similar to Him.
“…Muslims further recognize that Allah is beyond complete human understanding, as there is nothing in creation comparable to Him. Perhaps in the afterlife we will be gifted with greater understanding, but in this life, knowledge of our Creator is confined within the boundaries of revelation…”

Islam has never been only a nation. Rather, Islam is a call to a nation, “to enjoin the right and to forbid the wrong” (Quran 3:104)- that is, to perform a moral mission.
-Alija Izetbegović [Former Chairman of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina]
Let there be a community among you who call to the good, and enjoin the right, and forbid the wrong. These are the successful.
The life of this world is just like rain We send down from the sky, producing a mixture of plants which humans and animals consume. Then just as the earth looks its best, perfectly beautified, and its people think they have full control over it, there comes to it Our command by night or by day, so We mow it down as if it never flourished yesterday! This is how We make the signs clear for people who reflect. And Allah invites to the Home of Peace and guides whoever He wills to the Straight Path.
1- a warning for wrongdoings.
2- cleanses our sins.
3- shows our weakness.
4- make us closer to God.
this life is a test. The Qur’an states:
Allah has created death and life to test which one of you is best in deeds.
To each of you We have ordained a code of law and a way of life. If Allah had willed, He would have made you one community, but His Will is to test you with what He has given you. So compete with one another in doing good. To Allah you will all return.
“Do not hate each other, do not envy each other, do not turn away from each other, but rather be servants of Allah as brothers. It is not lawful for a Muslim to boycott his brother for more than three days.”
