Remember the destroyer of pleasures often, [which is] death
۞ Hadith: The Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said,
“I used to forbid you from visiting the graves in the early part of Islam.
But now I command you to visit them, because they serve to remind you of the next life… for such visits soften the heart, bring tears to the eyes, and serve as a reminder of the Hereafter.
But be careful not to speak forbidden expressions.”
📕 Al-Hakim – Sahih Al-Jami’ 4584 (Hasan)
Usually people don’t like to hear about death, talk about it, or even think about it. But the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Remember the destroyer of pleasures often, [which is] death.”
