Feed [TROID] Benefit: Is There Any Virtue in Dying on a Specific Day or at a SpecificTime?

In the Name of All?h, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
Shaykh ?Abd al-?Az?z ibn B?z (???? ????) was asked: "Is dying on a Thursday night, during the day on a Friday, or in Rama??n virtuous?"

His (???? ????) said: "I do not know anything about this. All of the A?ad?th reported about dying on a Friday are inauthentic. Likewise, I do not know anything that suggests that dying in Rama??n has a specific merit. If an individual died while being upright and fasting, then we hope for a tremendous amount of goodness [for him]; however, I do not know anything specific about dying in Rama??n. As for dying on a Thursday night or during the day on a Friday, then there are inauthentic narrations reported about that."
