Chapter 18, The Angel of Death With The Proud King And The Devout Man Summary

Once there was a King so full of pride that he donned his finest clothing and rode his finest steed out so the people could admire him. A man dressed in rags stops the steed and tells the King that he is the Angel of Death come for his soul. The King falls, dead, off his horse. The next man the Angel of Death comes for is a pious man, so the Angel tells this man that he may take time to prepare for death. The pious man asks for time to make the Wazu-ablution and lie prostrate to pray. The Angel grants his wish and takes him to heaven.
