English Translation of Al-Quran
.Surah As-Sajdah [The Prostration]
Ayat 11. Say: "The angel of death, who is set over you, will take your souls, then you shall be brought to your Lord."
Tafseer of Surah Al Sajdah (The Prostration) Ayat 11. Say: "The Angel of Death, put in charge of you, will (duly) take your souls then shall ye be brought back to your Lord." If death is certain, as it is, and this life by itself in no way satisfies our instincts and expectations, we may be sure that the agency which separates our soul from our bodies will bring us into the new world. If we believe in a soul at all the very foundation of Religion—we must believe in a Future, without which the soul has no meaning.
