Are you afraid of death? Do you think there is life after death i.e Heaven, Hell or Reincarnation? Just wondering other peoples take on this.

Personally, I'm not afraid of death as I do not believe in life after death. However, I'm scared of the process of dying & how I could potentially be in so much pain.

If you don't believe in life after death how are you not afraid of it? It you believed in life after death then that surely would be a reason not to fear it?

Personally, I'm only afraid of the death of others, I don't care as much for myself.

dying in a horrible, painful way - yes

Not something that bothers me any more, I came to terms with mortality a long time ago.

Death is the great leveller of all people regardless of occupation, class or background.

The knowledge of not waking up one day spurs me into getting the most out of every single day.

I fear Allah and therefore, I fear life.

I suppose I do fear death, in that I'm afraid that I might die before getting to do certain things that I want to achieve, but I'm not afraid of death itself, if that makes sense. I also don't believe in life after death, at least not in the concepts of heaven, hell etc

I'm not so much scared of death as I am on dying young. I'm scared I'm going to die young when I haven't done everything I want to do in life and when I haven't spent as much time with my loved ones as I see fit.

I don't believe in heaven or an afterlife.

Because you will know nothing about it. It will just be like before you were born.

I'm not really afraid of the concept of death, but I am afraid of not living if that makes sense.

As for afterlife and stuff, I really doubt it. The closest thing I could imagine possible is you relive your life over and over and we're never aware that we already lived it. For all we know we could all be dead and this might be our 7th time reliving it, but we're not aware. Obviously it's ridiculous but that's the only thing I imagine there would be.

It's probably like before we we're born, just nothing, no awareness of something if it is there, and not worth worrying about because once you're dead that's it. Best to just focus on the present and time we have and experience whatever death actually is when it happens.
