Important Factors Affecting Life Span (Part 1)

life span

One of the most important factors for calculating life span in human being is the assessment of the volume of the sins a man commits during his life. The more sins he commits, the shorter his life will be, the least blessings he will receive and his life will be all in vain.
“O, may God give you a long life! May God help you live for 120 years! May God bestow upon you numerous blessings! O God, do not let him die young!”
These are examples of the sentences and wishes showing man’s deep interest in living a long and blissful life, and his thirst for more chances to realize more and more dreams by his efforts and endeavors.
On the importance of these wishes it suffices to say that man lives with an never-ending dream of a long and eternal life every day. Man spends every moment of his life on inventing a life elongating formula or on a quest for elixir of life of elixir of immortality to live a long and never-ending life.
However, it is clear that man is unable to calculate the exact life expectancy of human beings, because it is with the absolute knowledge of the Almighty God Who knows everything about the exact time and place of the death of every single human being.

“Indeed, Allah [alone] has knowledge of the Hour and sends down the rain and knows what is in the wombs. And no soul perceives what it will earn tomorrow, and no soul perceives in what land it will die. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.” (Surah Luqman: 34)
