Following is 2 pages long.

Assalaam alaikum,

My dear father, Air Vice Marshal Mohammad Latif Tambra sahab, whom I always fondly called “DaddyJan”, took his last breath on 10th October 2007. May his soul rest in peace. Ameen. {Who, when afflicted with calamity, say: "Truly! To Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return." (  سورة البقرة  , Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #156)}

My DaddyJan used to read The Noble Quran very fondly. He could understand Quran completely and always tried to practice it. May Allah give My DaddyJan good rewards for his noble practices, which he did during his whole life, and good rewards for all his Ibadah (worship to Allah). Ameen. 

Following are some (28) verses of The Holy Quran regarding death.  

1) O you who believe! Be not like those who disbelieve (hypocrites) and who say to their brethren when they travel through the earth or go out to fight: "If they had stayed with us, they would not have died or been killed," so that Allah may make it a cause of regret in their hearts. It is Allah that gives life and causes death. And Allah is All-Seer of what you do.  
سورة آل عمران  , Aal-e-Imran, Chapter #3, Verse #156)


2) And to Allah belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And all matters go back (for decision) to Allah.  
سورة آل عمران  , Aal-e-Imran, Chapter #3, Verse #109)


3) (They are) the ones who said about their killed brethren while they themselves sat (at home): "If only they had listened to us, they would not have been killed." Say: "Avert death from your ownselves, if you speak the truth."  
سورة آل عمران  , Aal-e-Imran, Chapter #3, Verse #168)


4) Everyone shall taste death . And only on the Day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full. And whoever is removed away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise, he indeed is successful. The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception (a deceiving thing).  
سورة آل عمران  , Aal-e-Imran, Chapter #3, Verse #185)


5) "Where-so-ever you may be, death will overtake you even if you are in fortresses built up strong and high!" (  سورة النساء  , An-Nisa, Chapter #4, Verse


6) He who emigrates (from his home) in the Cause of Allah, will find on earth many dwelling places and plenty to live by. And whosoever leaves his home as an emigrant unto Allah and His Messenger, and death overtakes him, his reward is then surely incumbent upon Allah. And Allah is Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.  
سورة النساء  , An-Nisa, Chapter #4, Verse


7) He is the Irresistible, Supreme over His slaves, and He sends guardians (angels guarding and writing all of ones good and bad deeds) over you, until when death approaches one of you, Our Messengers (angel of death and his assistants) take his soul, and they never neglect their duty.  
سورة الأنعام  , Al-Anaam, Chapter #6, Verse


8) Say (O Muhammad SAW): "O mankind! Verily, I am sent to you all as the Messenger of Allah – to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He); It is He Who gives life and causes death…. "  
سورة الأعراف  , Al-Araf, Chapter #7, Verse #158)


9) Verily, Allah! Unto Him belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, He gives life and He causes death. And besides Allah you have neither any Walee (protector or guardian) nor any helper.

سورة السجدة  , As-Sajda, Chapter #32, Verse #11)


17) It is Allah Who takes away the souls at the time of their death, and those that die not during their sleep. He keeps those (souls) for which He has ordained death and sends the rest for a term appointed. Verily, in this are signs for a people who think deeply.  
سورة الزمر  , Az-Zumar, Chapter #39, Verse #42)


18) He it is Who gives life and causes death. And when He decides upon a thing He says to it only: "Be!" and it is.

    assalaam u alaikum:just wanted to add here that passing away of avm tambra sahib made my parents and myself very sad. and we often re-fresh our memories of the time & week-ends spent with uncle (avm tambra sahib) & your mother at korangi creek. i still remember frame by frame, how your mother baked bread in an oven fueled by methylated-spirit, uncle, trouble-shooting "pye" or a "grundig" tv with a soldering-iron, while an lp-player played ‘she’s a lady’ by ‘tom jones’ in the background…… i loved to ride a hub-geared bi-cycle belonged to you all, which had to be removed from the store-room and tyres pumped up. back in 1974, uncle (avm tambra sahib) helped my elder brother & myself get admission in paf model school, drigh rd, khi., mr simon d’lima was principal then. during those days i was like a fourth grader, but alhamdulillah, i remember how uncle used to clean leaves of rubber-plants, maintained his sky-blue toyota-corona. i even remember once on a week-end he was having his hair-cut in the lawn sitting under a big tree, a tree we used to climb and take food along….that’s all i want to write for the moment, for i know my expression has its limitations, but all what i have written is written in good faith. my parents and i place avm tambra sahib high in our hearts. best regards,wassalaam asif shahs/o mr shabbir hussain shahislamabad
