Surah Al-Jumu'ah (The Friday) 62

This Surah was revealed in Madinah, and it has 11 verses and 2 sections

In the Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Most Merciful

Say, "Indeed, the death from which you (try to) run away has to visit you ... 62:8

COMMENTARY: Traditions forbid anyone to wish for death. The most important reason behind this is that no one has the right to believe that as soon as he dies, he will certainly enter Paradise and will have no fear of any punishment. Wishing for death in such a state of mind is tantamount to show bravery before Allah.

(Say, "Indeed, the death from which you (try to) run away has to visit you... 62:8) In other words, running away from longing for death despite their aforesaid claim is tantamount to running away from death itself. The Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam is instructed in the verse to tell them that the death from which they are fleeing would inevitably catch up with them. If that would not happen instantly, it would certainly happen sometime later. Thus it is impossible for anyone to avoid or avert death in any way.
