Death is a Mercy

Imam Abou Abdellah (Pbuh) said: "A nation asked their prophet to ask his lord to raise death from upon them. He asked his lord and so Allah raised death from upon. They grew in numbers till houses couldn’t occupy them anymore. Also as people increased in numbers one had to feed his father, grandfather, mother and grand grandfather. He had to wash them and take care of them. Thus they had no more time to seek their livelihood. Then they said to their prophet: "Ask your lord to bring us back as we were." The prophet asked his lord and so they were back as they were before."
