IS SMILING (OF THE DECEASED) A SIGN OF A GOOD ENDING – SHAYKH MUHAMMAD AL-WASAABEE

Husn al-khātimah has been mentioned in various hadīths. So we should rely solely on what was reported from the Messenger  regarding it and should not add to it based on opinion. From the opinion-based signs of husn al-khātimah is the dead person being light. Some people consider this to be from husn al-khātimah— that his body was extremely swift and easy (when carried) over people’s shoulders. This is not a proof. It might be because his body is lean, yet knowing whether or not a person’s actions are righteous is something else.

Ok then what if his body were fat? Would it be said that this is from sū’ al-khātimah (i.e. evil ending)? Pay no attention to this.

Husn al-Khātimah is when (a Muslim) dies while fasting, performing haj, praying, doing jihaad, when he dies upon a good ending, upon a righteous deed. In this case, you say: Maashaallaah! Wishing him good but not affirming Paradise for him. Conversely, sū’ al-khātimah is when one dies while not praying (i.e. abandoning prayer), (visiting) a sorcerer, while drunk, or committing robbery or any forbidden act. However, affirm for him neither Paradise nor Hell.
