Saying the shahadah at death is definitely almost every Muslim’s wish before they leave this world. Are there any ways I can ensure I say the shahdah at the time of death? What factors are in place in order for this to happen?
Shaykh Suleiman Hani answers.
How can I be able to say the Shahada at the time of death?
One of the most important things to keep in mind is that the reality is that we will die upon what we lived upon. So if you live upon it a lot, not just in your heart, but in your actions and your words in your daily life, you will find that this will increase the likelihood that at the time of death, you will be able to also say, La ilaha illAllah. We find many examples, many stories. I know many people, for example, and I've been in some incidents in which individuals who outwardly are Muslim or Muslim by name at the time of death, they're not able to say that in a law for one reason or another, we find other people at the end of their lives, they're searching for the truth their
entire lives, they end up submitting an entry into Islam. And at the moment of death shortly thereafter, they're able to say law, law. So there are many things that determine the likelihood of the one who is able to say it. Ultimately all of it goes back to what live by law you know, in the law and you will be able inshallah, to die upon it. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us internal sincerity, external sincerity and the ability to say law in law, activity moment of death and alone knows best
