This Hadith forbids a believer to wish for his death as the longevity of his age suits him by all
means. The longer he lives, the greater degree of progress he will make in the pursuit of virtues. And in case he
infringes upon the Shari`ah rules, he may perhaps incline towards penitence. A believer should, therefore, consider
his life as a boon and try his utmost to do good things .
