Details of the Question
Is it true that Satan appears with water at the time of death?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

It is necessary to put some water constantly into the mouth of a person who is in deathbed since his mouth will go dry. For, at the time of death, Satan approaches with a glass of water. 

Islamic scholars say that it is sunnah to utter kalima at-tawhid near a person who is in deathbed. The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said,

"Say, 'Lailaha illallah' near the Muslims who are in deathbed."

The following is stated in another hadith:

“A person whose last word before death is 'Lailaha illallah' goes to Paradise."

It is good to recite the Quran near a dead person. The Messenger of Allah stated the following regarding the issue:

"The chapter of Yasin is the heart of the Quran. If a person reads it with the intention of Allah and the hereafter, Allah will forgive him. Read it for your dead people."

(see Prof. Dr. Süleyman TOPRAK, Ölümden Sonraki Hayat)
