Account of people who die in Ramadhan
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale-Imraan verse 145:
145 Nor can a soul die except by Allah's leave; the term being fixed as by writing (as Decreed and Pre-Ordained by Allah).
The Prophet (saws) said, "At every womb

Man has absolutely nothing to do with the determination of one’s time of death; the exact time and place where one will meet with one’s appointment of death is Decreed and Determined by Allah Subhanah, the Lord of the Worlds. In light of the clear guidance of the Glorious Quran, how and when one dies has absolutely nothing to do with how one is treated in one’s life in the Hereafter!
Allah Subhanah has clearly, time and time again, Declared in His Glorious Quran that the things that will determine whether one deserves Allah’s Mercy and Forgiveness and thus Paradise, or one deserves His Wrath and Anger and thus Hell Fire, is entirely dependant on the two things which each individual chooses to do of his own ‘free will’:
- one’s belief
- one’s deeds
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraaf verses 40-42:
40 To those who reject Our Signs and treat them with arrogance no opening will there be of the Gates of Heaven, nor will they enter the Garden until the camel can pass through the eye of the needle! (ie. impossible!!): such is Our reward for those in sin.
41 For them there is Hell as a couch (below), and folds and folds of covering (of the same) above: such is Our requital of those who do wrong.
42 But those who believe and do righteous good deeds, no burden do We place on any soul but that which it can bear, they will be companions of the Garden; therein to dwell (for ever).
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 47 Surah Muhammad verse 12:
12 Verily Allah will admit those who believe and do righteous good deeds to Gardens beneath which rivers flow; while those who reject Allah will enjoy (this world) and eat as cattle eat; and the Fire will be their abode (in the Hereafter).
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisaa verse 57:
57 But those who believe and do righteous good deeds, We shall soon admit to Gardens with rivers flowing beneath, their eternal home: therein shall they have companions pure and holy: We shall admit them to shades, cool and ever deepening.
In light of the guidance of the Glorious Quran, it is an
absolutely baseless, unfounded, and false belief that every person that dies in
the Holy Month of Ramadan will not be held accountable for his deeds, or that
all his sins will be forgiven, or that he will go directly to
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
