This study delves into the intersection of thanatology, the scientific study of death, with Islamic eschatology, the belief system concerning the end times and the afterlife in Islam. By examining Islamic teachings, beliefs, and rituals related to death and the afterlife, this research aims to enrich our understanding of mortality from both scientific and spiritual perspectives. Through a comprehensive analysis, we explore how Islamic eschatology can offer valuable insights into the human experience of death and dying, and its implications for end-of-life care, grief support, and existential considerations. Islamic eschatology, with its emphasis on the transient nature of earthly life and the eternal significance of the Hereafter, provides profound insights into the existential questions surrounding mortality. By integrating Islamic perspectives into the discourse of thanatology, we gain a deeper appreciation for the multifaceted dimensions of death and dying, and their impact on individuals and societies across diverse cultural and religious backgrounds. Moreover, this exploration highlights the importance of cultural sensitivity and inclusivity in end-of-life care and bereavement support. Moving forward, continued dialogue and interdisciplinary collaboration are essential for further enriching thanatological discourse worldwide. By fostering cross-cultural understanding and collaboration, we can promote greater empathy, compassion, and support for individuals and families navigating the profound challenges of mortality and bereavement. This study underscores the significance of integrating religious and cultural perspectives into the study of death and dying, offering a holistic approach that honors the complexity of human experiences and provides meaningful insights for addressing the existential questions surrounding life's end
