Description from the publisher:
Reminders of death help an individual maintain a balanced life, so that when he goes through ease he does not become arrogant or transgress against others, and when he goes through hardship he does not panic and fall into despair.
This book is a timely reminder of death, for thinking of death deters one from persisting in sin and prompts one to do righteous deeds that may lead one to paradise, whereas forgetting about death may lead to one following whims and desires, and committing evil deeds that could lead one to hell.
In this book, the author has also mentioned incidents from the lives of the Companions, successors, and other pious predecessors that highlight their concern for life after death despite their good deeds.
