I have a small query here on death and subsequent effects on social events. Supposing one of my terminally ill maternal uncle dies in the month of my wedding, should we postpone the marriage in respect like Hiindus and create inconvenience to all other people or consider death as one of the truths and carry on with routine affairs(in this case marriage)? Please elaborate with what gurmat has to say on it and what are prevailing practices.

Death is nothing bad, its just end of allotted time.

Humans are born with a fear of death to prevent them from committing suicide or keep the cautious of harm

If your uncle was terminally ill and suffering , death was best thing that could have happened to him, he is not ill anymore. Since he was terminally ill death was inevitable.

The best thing to do would be to continue with marriage and make it simple to show your condolences and instead spend that money on langar for the poor (in name of the deceased) instead of a big fat marriage.
