In an old meeting of the late Jamil Ratib in 2017, with the Lebanese media, Raghida Shalhoub, on the “Comprehensive Examination” program, he talked about death, and Ratib said at the time: “Death for me is a relief from the problems of disease and old age. Death is the fate of every human being. When I die, the people who were beside me and love me and I hope to meet them in the second world will happen to me. I am 90 years old and loved the life I lived, but my life is now satisfied with it, praise be to God.“.
