Believer's Refusal to Remain in the World and Receiving Good News

Hadrat Ibn Jareeh (Allah be pleased with him) reports that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said to Hadrat Ai'sha (Allah be pleased with her):

"When a Believer meets the angels (at the time of death) they ask him, "Should we get you back in the world?"  Thereupon he says, "Do you want me to leave in the world of sorrows and sufferings? I don't want to live here;  take me immediately to Almighty Allah." (Ibn Jabir)

Hadrat Zaid bin Aslam (Allah be pleased with him) is reported to have said:

"At the time of death, angels come to the Believer with the good news and say. 'Don't be afraid of the place you are going to. Thus his fear disappears. He is also told not to grow sad at the separation from the world and the  worldly people and have the good news of Paradise. Hence he dies in a state that Almighty Allah makes his eye cool in this world." (Ibn Abi Hatim)
