From the Foreword by Habib Ali's son:

"A Muslim should not wait for the time when one is considered old to think that death is near. Whilst only Allah, the Exalted, knows when a person's time is due, knowing the deeds to perform when one is sick, visiting the sick or approaching death helps us to remember Allah, the Most Merciful, and makes it easy for the sick and dying person to cope with the process of death. Everyone should be aware and be prepared for the unexpected death of his or her family member, young or old and the practices during such difficult times as conducted by the Prophet, may Allah's blessings and peace be upon him."
