On average, one person dies every minute in the United Kingdom. Globally it’s one a second. The Angel of Death is clearly rather busy.
When we think about death and, based on what I have just shared with you, its frequency, we of course, as believers in Allah, God Almighty, and the hereafter, don’t so much regard its occurrence as the end, but as the beginning. The beginning of someone’s eternity. And so on average, in the United Kingdom, what is happening is that someone’s eternity is beginning every sixty seconds. By the end of this speech, this will be true for another eight to ten people in this country, and another five hundred to six hundred around the world.
