During the Muraqaba of life after death, I saw a home at the end of a field. Inside the walls, there is a big tree. There are many people standing under that tree. I went there as well. I saw a woman arguing with someone saying that she would not allow him to take away her husband. That man replied that he could not help her as he was acting on Divine Command. He said, “These are the matters of God, He does what He wishes.” The woman then shouted, “Ah!” and began crying. I went ahead and asked the man why he was harassing her. He looked at me and said, “Look at me closely and recognize who I am.”
I then closed my eyes the way we do in Muraqaba and tried to see him. I then realized he was the angel of death. I greeted him respectfully and extended my hand for a handshake. The archangel Izraeel shook my hand and I felt as if electricity were going through me. I felt the shocks as well and was knocked down by the force of the current.
I was scared; nevertheless I asked him politely, “What is the matter with her husband?” The archangel Izrael replied, “He is the beloved servant of God.

He is with the Divine Wish and ready to leave this world, but his wife is insisting that she will not let me take his soul unless they both die together.”

The pillow was of leather and inside there were date tree leaves. His beard was short and round. He had a tall muscular body, broad forehead with big bright eyes. One thing I noticed as well was that his forehead was so bright as if the rays of the sun were coming from it. It was so bright that I could hardly stare at it. Upon entering the room the angel of death said to him, “Assalaam Alaykum O Abdullah (Slave of God)!”
I too said, “Salaam Alaik, Mr. Abdullah!”
Hazarat Abdullah (most likely his name was abdullah as well) then said to the angel of death, “What order of our Creator have you brought with you?”
The angel replied, “God wishes to see you.”
Then the angel sat in front of him in a meditative pose and the holy man slowly lay in front of him. His body shook for a second and then his soul left his body. The angel then departed for the sky. I could see him going up and up…
