Ibn Abee Awais narrated that Imaam Maalik complained of (illness) a few days, so I asked a member of our family concerning what he (Maalik) said at the time of death; he said: He (Maalik) uttered the Shahaadah (Laa-ilaaha-ilal-laah) and then (recited the ayah):  [لِلَّهِ الْأَمْرُ مِن قَبْلُ وَمِن بَعْدُ ] ”The decision of the matter, before and after is only with Allah.” [Soorah Room: Ayah:4]
