 مغسل و ضامن جنه 

Meghassel we damen gannah

Translation: I can prepare you for burial but I cannot guarantee you'll go to heaven

Meaning: I can help you with some things, but you are responsible for your own life and choices. Similarly, an undertaker can prepare you for burial, but whether or not you go to heaven is dependant on the decisions you made in life.

Another knowledge to learn
Suicide is suicide: FORBIDDEN IN ALL RELIGIONS. You blow yourself it is suicide and no forgiveness. You blow up others it is suicide and no forgiveness. NO JUSTIFICATION. NO person can promise you anything in the hereafter, no one..your deeds will speak for you. REMEMBER to suicide in any shape or form it is suicide and NOT forgiven. PLUS if you blow yourself up and is the cause of another death, THAT is another crime on your soul -suicide and murder. THIS should be taught in all languages, Moslems wake up - El Azhar El Shareef wake up and teach and instruct..Ahram Center for Translation and Publishing wake up and inform and teach and instruct for the good of humanity.
