Iskandar encounters Israfil
Public Notes
One of the talking birds tells Iskandar to climb the nearby mountain to witness something that would make any happy person weep. Iskandar reaches the top of the mountain and sees Israfil, the Angel of Death, ready to blow his trumpet, and warning Iskandar of his impending fate, which would make all his acquisitions futile. He comes down from the mountain, lamenting and praising God.
