The issue of sudden and appointed time of death of human has long been studied from by the Islamic interpreters. Some of the verses of the Holy Quran talks about indefinite time of death as:
Pأَنِ اعْبُدُوا اللَّهَ وَ اتَّقُوهُ وَ أَطیعُونِ * یَغْفِرْ لَکُمْ مِنْ ذُنُوبِکُمْ وَ یُؤَخِّرْکُمْ إِلی أَجَلٍ مُسَمًّی إِنَّ أَجَلَ اللَّهِ إِذا جاءَ لا یُؤَخَّرُ لَوْ کُنْتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَO (نوح/ 3ـ4).
That you should worship Allah and be careful of your duty to Him and obey Me, He will forgive some of your sins and grant you to an appointed term. However, some of other verses talk about certain time of death as:
Pنَحْنُ قَدَّرْنا بَیْنَکُمُ الْمَوْتَ وَ ما نَحْنُ بِمَسْبُوقینَO(الواقعه/60).
We have ordained death among you and We are not to be overcome. The writer of this paper, firstly, based on the verses and traditions, has proved the sudden and appointed time of death; secondly, based on the various degrees of science of Allah, he has proved that diversity of death is not inconsistent with each other because the sudden death returns to the appointed death.
