Anonymous said: Is it haraam to ask allah to make you die? Not that I am gonna pray for that... Just curious.
Kindly note that I am not a scholar or an Ustadha with extensive Islamic knowledge. I can only advise you based on the research I’ve done and from personal experience. I would encourage you to further research the matter and seek advice from others with more reliable knowledge like your nearest Masjid Imam or a scholar.
Here are some hadith that I’ve found:
It is highly disliked for one to wish for one’s death, or supplicate Allah Azza-Wajal for it due to poverty, distress, illness, or the like. All six compilers of hadith narrate on the authority of Hadrat Anas ibn Malik (r.a.) that the Prophet (saws) said: “Let no one among you wish for death due to any hardship that may befall him. But if one has no other choice, but to do so, one should say: “O Allah! Grant me life as long as life is good for me, and cause me to die when death is better for me.”
Umm al-Fadl (r.a.) narrated that the Prophet (saws) went to see (his uncle) Al-Abbas. He (saws) found him wishing for death. Thereupon the Prophet (saws) said: ‘O Al-Abbas! O uncle of Allah’s Messenger! Do not wish for death! If you do good and live long, your good deeds will multiply. Then that is better for you. If you are not good and your death is delayed, you may seek Allah’s forgiveness. That is better for you. So do not wish for death’.”

I hope this answers your question, InsyaAllah.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Dont ask for death to come to you. Instead, do good.
