Dictate Sentence of Tawheed To People Who Will Die

Posted on

Hi all readers! I think we all know what sentence of Tawheed is. Okay! If you don’t know what is sentence of Tawheed, then I will explain it. The sentence is لاإله إلا الله [there is no god but Allah]. A Muslim is highly recommended to read the sentence often. But in this article, I will explain the command to dictate sentence of Tawheed to people who will die.

As usual, before I further explain the command to dictate sentence of Tawheed to people who will die, I will quote one hadith that is specifically related to our discussion.

Hadith About Dictate Sentence of Tawheed To People Who Will Die

The hadith about dictate sentence of Tawheed to people who will die that I mean is as follows;

عَنْ أَبِيْ سَعِيْدٍ وَ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُمَا قَالَا : قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : لَقِّنُوْا مَوْتَاكُمْ لَاإِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ . رَوَاهُ مُسْلِمٌ وَأَرْبَعَةٌ

From Abu Sa’id and Abu Hurairah radliyallahu ‘anhuma. They both said, Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said,” Dictate the sentence “لاإله إلا الله [there is no god but Allah]” to those who will die. The hadith is narrated by four people (Abu Daud, at-Tirmidhi, an-Nasa’I, and Ibn Majah).

There are some important things about the above hadith that we need to know;

One: We are encouraged to often say the sentence of Tawheed (لاإله إلا الله [there is no god but Allah]), especially dictating the sentence to the person who is going to die.

Two: The sentence of Tawheed (لاإله إلا الله [there is no god but Allah]) is one reason we will get eternal happiness.
