Question: When Azrail comes and we see him, we are going to have big fear. How can we prepare ourselves for that day so we can say shahadah?
BismillahirRahmanirRahim. How to prepare for Azrail? Like this, when you go to sleep to know that Azrail is under your pillow and when you wake up, to know that he is right in front of your face. To know that as a reality, to go to visit cemeteries, to go to visit sick people and dying people, you will understand. By your own intelligence, you know how to fix yourself to prepare for Azrail. This much is enough. I will speak more later. SelamAleykum warahmatullahi Wabarakatu.
