Shaikh Saleh Sindee said, “It’s not the physical deaths due to an epidemic that I am fearful of, since the number of deaths due to car accidents is much greater, what I worry about is the death of one’s heart:
وَلَقَدْ أَخَذْنَاهُم بِالْعَذَابِ فَمَا اسْتَكَانُوا لِرَبِّهِمْ وَمَا يَتَضَرَّعُونَ
‘And indeed We seized them with punishment—but they humbled not themselves to their Lord, nor do they supplicate in humility.’” [23:76]

Ibn Rajab, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “It is not right for morning or evening to come upon a believer except that he is in a state of repentance, because he does not know when death might surprise him. [Will it be] in the morning or the evening? Or will his soul be taken when he is performing an act of obedience or disobedience? So whoever comes upon morning or evening not in a state of repentance then he is in danger, since it is feared that he will meet Allaah not repenting and thus be gathered alongside the company of oppressors.”
Lataa’iful-Ma’aarif, p. 458.

From ’Uqbah ibn ’Aamir al-Juhani, who said, “I said, ‘O Messenger of Allaah! What is the means to salvation?’ He replied, ‘Withhold your tongue, let your home be sufficient for you, and cry over your sins.’” Tirmidhi, no. 2406, declared authentic by al-Albaani.
