عَنْ مَطَرِ بْنِ عُكَامِسٍ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: (إِذَا قَضَى اللَّهُ لِعَبْدٍ أَنْ يَمُوتَ بِأَرْضٍ جَعَلَ لَهُ إِلَيْهَا حَاجَةً).
[صحيح] - [رواه الترمذي]
المزيــد ...

Matar ibn ‘Ukāmis reported: The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said: "If Allah decreed that someone should die in a certain land, He makes for him a reason to go there."
Sahih/Authentic. - [At-Tirmidhi]

Explanation

"If Allah decreed": i.e., wanted, predestined, or ruled - that a person should die in a certain land and his life in this world should end in a specific location where he does not exist, "Allah makes for him": i.e., reveals to him - a reason to go there. And when he is there, he dies. Allah Almighty says: {Nor does any soul know in which land it will die.}
