Details of the Question

Can a person who is about to die see the realm of angels? Can we understand that a person who is about to die is observing the realm of angels by sitting next to him/her and looking at him/her?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

It is not definite that man can observe the realm of angels. That is, not everybody that dies can observe the realm of angels. However, a person sees the angel of death when he is about to die. Besides, man cannot see the realm of angels from this world. However, saints can see it if Allah shows it.

The angels appearing at the time of death and informing people about their rank, the death throes and the states at that time are the realities of ghayb that cannot be known by the people in the world. It is necessary for a believer to believe in the realities of ghayb related to the nature of death, life in the grave and the realms of the hereafter informed by Allah and His Messenger. It is necessary for every Muslim to believe definitely in those states that are informed by definite news.
