Death Being Delayed. by Taamas111 (m): 3:07pm on January 13

I have some questions regarding to death.
Does Allah ever change the time of a
person's death? Does it mention anywhere in
the Qur'aan or Hadeeth of this ever
happening? Also, the night of Al- Qadar, a
night better than a thousand months, Allah
writes the destiny of mankind for the
upcoming year, right? I am asking these
because I have read somewhere where a
Muslim was so kind to his/her parents that
when the angel off death came to that
person, he/she was excused from dying at
that time. However, the Qur'aan states, when
death comes, it does not delay an hour. I am
so confused. I hope you can help me by
answering my questions. Thank you for your
time and service. May Allah bless you and
your family. Take care.

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.
Every person has an appointed time and
fixed days in this life as Allah says (what
means): {And for every nation is a [specified]
term. So when their time has come, they will
not remain behind an hour, nor will they
precede [it].} [Quran 7:34].
This appointed time is written in the
preserved record, and it does not change.

However, some people of knowledge are of
the view that what changes is the knowledge
of the angel of death. They say that the
saying of Allah (what means): {Allah
eliminates or confirms what He wills, and
with Him is the Mother of the Book} [Quran
13:39] has this meaning.
It is reported that Ibn 'Abbaas , may Allah be
pleased with him, said regarding the verse of
Allah (what means): {The angels and the
Spirit [i.e. Gabriel] descend therein by
permission of their Lord for every matter.}
[Quran 97:4]. The angels descend with all
decrees that Allah decreed on that year until
the coming year.

However, we do not know of any evidence
proving that being kind to parents is a
reason of warding off the angel of death
when he comes to a person. But it is
confirmed that the Prophet said:
"Whoever wants his age and provision to be
extended, has to be dutiful to his parents
and keep relations with his kinship." [Ahmad]
The meaning here is based on what is
previously mentioned regarding the
knowledge of the angel, however, some other
people of knowledge are of the view that this
means blessings in one's life, and not really
having the age extended, and this meaning
seems to be more appropriate.

Allah knows best.
