Why do I dislike death?

Sulayman ibn ‘Abd al-Malik (the Ruler) once sent for Abu Hazim, and when he came to him, he said, “O Abu Hazim, why is it that we dislike death?”

He said, “Because you have ruined your Hereafter and built up your present world. So you hate to leave this constructed world of yours and go to the ruins.”

He said, “That’s true. So how will our arrival be when we go back to Allah?”

He said, “As for the righteous good-doer, then he will be like the absent one returning to his family, and as for the wicked, then he will be like the runaway slave being brought back to his master.”

Sulayman then wept and said, “Alas, what do we have with Allah then, O Abu Hazim?”

He said, “Present yourself to the Book of Allah `azza wa jall, and you will know what you have with Him.”
