Feed [TROID] Benefit: Recompense Is Based on the Voluntary Actions of the Slave

In the Name of All?h, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
Shaykh Mu?ammad ibn ??li[FONT='Arial',sans-serif]?[/font] al-?Uthaym?n (???? ????) was asked: I heard and read that if a Muslim dies on a Thursday night, or during the day on a Friday, he will have a good station [in Jannah]. What is your view on that? May All?h reward you.

The shaykh (???? ????) said:

The ?ad?th which reported the merit of dying on a Friday is inauthentic, since an individual is rewarded based on his voluntary actions [i.e. actions he did out of his free will]. The death of an individual on a Friday is not by choice [i.e. is not of his free will]. If death came to him on a Thursday, he is incapable of delaying it until Friday. [Similarly,] he is incapable of expediting it to Friday, if it was written for him to die on a Saturday.

[Thus,] every ?ad?th that mentioned the merit of dying on a particular day is inauthentic because recompense is based on the voluntary actions of the slave.
