A matter that everyone believes in, the Muslim, Jew, Hindu and even atheist – the belief that sickness and death is a reality to be faced by all.

It affects the rich and poor, white and black, evil and good, even the best of mankind, Muhammed Sallalaahu alaihi wassalam who said on his deathbed "There is no deity worthy of worship besides Allah, verily the pangs of death are severe!" [Bukhari]

A reality so clear and so near but something many shy away from discussing whereas the Messenger Sallalaahu alaihi wassalam advised "Increase the mention of the destroyer of desires: Death" [Tirmidhi]
