Death trough Epilepsy – Afterlife?


Asalaam aleikum,

My cousin from Hongkong died in his mid-twenties from consequences of epilepsy. He suffocated on his vomit in a state of unconsciousness with no-one near to help him. He suffered most of his lifetime from this sickness. He was not Muslim by Shahada, but half a year before he died he visited me for a week and got catch a glimpse of Islam and he really liked me. Is there hope for him regarding a peaceful afterlife?

Thank you for your efforts and your answers.

Best regards


Alaykum Salam,

Allah planted that attraction to Islam in your cousin’s heart and facilitated it through his visit to you. Perhaps He used all this to bring him to belief before death, and He used his suffering to cleanse him and raise him. It is up to Him alone. And it is up to us to thank Him for guiding us and ask for His enduring protection.
