Three questions about death


Is sudden death a rest for a mouemin. Is there a hadith stating this. What if a person died without prior fatal illness, is that a kind of takhfiif =ease of sakarat lmawet?

What if a person died and the last word of his before leaving house to go to hospital, Ashahadou an lailaha ilallah waashhadou ana mohammedan rasoulullah.

Another question is if a woman has menstruation, can she still kiss a dead person before his jananzah. Sorry for this question, but I really need to know.

Thank you so much wassalam3alaikoum


`Alaykum as-Salam,

“Death is the gift of the believer” (al-mawtu tuhfatul mu’min; Hakim, `Abd b. Humayd, Abu Ya`la), period. If one dies after saying Shahada they enter Paradise as stated by the Prophet, upon him blessings and peace (Ahmad, Abu Dawud, Hakim). Yes to the last question, the Prophet (upon him blessings and peace) said “Subhan-Allah! Truly the Muslim is never impure” (Bukhari and Muslim); however, the Hanafis consider that a man or a woman cannot kiss his or her dead spouse because death has dissolved the marriage, while other schools permit it because it is closer to mercy and it goes against mercy to forbid one to kiss their life-companion goodbye. And Allah knows best.
