Companions in the Grave

Companions in the Grave
Said Yazid al-Ruqashi ‘I have heard it said that when the deceased is set in his tomb his works amass around him and are given to speak by Allah, so that they say, “O bondsman, alone in his pit! Your family and friends are now separated from you, so that today we are your sole companions.”
(Ihya’ of al-Ghazali)

The Islamic manner of having one’s sins Forgiven

The Islamic manner of having one’s sins Forgiven

Anyone who recites after each Salah Istighfaar three times, Ayat-ul-Kursi, the three Quls once, ‘SubhanAllah’ thirty three times, ‘Alhumdillah’ thirty three times, and Allahu Akbar thirty four times and the following once, then Allah will forgive all his sins, even if they are more than the foam of the ocean.

La ilaha illAllahu Wahdahu la Shareeka Lahu lahul Mulku wa Lahul Hamdu wa Huwa ‘Ala Kulli Shay’in Qader

 “There is no God but Allah, He is the one and He has no partner. For Him is the Kingdom and Praise and He has the power over all things possible.”

 Supplication:  After every Salaah, A person should place their right hand on the forehead, drawing it towards the back of the head and recite the Following:

O Muslims! It should be known that human life is of two types.

O Muslims! It should be known that human life is of two types.

Firstly, the worldly life which will last for a limited period and then it will perish. The duration of life, which Allah (Azw’wajjal) our Creator has bestowed upon every individual cannot be increased nor decreased and there is no power in the world that can change this. Secondly, the other life is the everlasting life of the Hereafter which will never perish unlike the uneternal worldly life. The eternal and everlasting life is dependent upon the worldly life; as the way a person spends his worldly life will influence the eternal life. Thus, it is necessary upon every intelligent person that he puts his utmost effort in order to make this temporary life successful. In every second of his life, he should be concerned about ways of perfecting this life so that he gains an ideal life in the Hereafter.

But How can a person Make his worldly life successful?

The answer is that there is only one method by which one can make his worldly life successful and other methods are only to devastate this life. The only method is that he should keep his relations with the Creator and the creation like the way the Beloved Prophet kept his and try to make all the teachings given by the Prophet Muhammad (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) his main aim in life.

In other words, he should follow in the footsteps of the Prophet Muhammad (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) until he becomes an ideal reflection of him. His day to day life should be spent the way the Prophet Muhammad (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) spent his days and night, up to the to the extent that he should follow the Prophet Muhammad (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) in every aspect of his life may it be worship, obeying customs and traditions, conversing and travelling, sitting and standing, meeting the old, young and his beloveds, eating, drinking and dressing, cleanliness of the body, when awake or asleep. In other words, in all the actions, manners and customs a person should follow the Prophet Muhammad (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) footsteps till he leaves this temporary world to the eternal world; the Hereafter.

One can observe that in this world, all different nations uphold strongly to their tradition and customs. Up to the extent we see that in order to pass on their customs and traditions, not only have they made financial sacrifices, but have also sacrificed their lives.

However, it is a great shame that the so-called Muslims are renouncing the Islamic customs and traditions and not only this, they have began to adopt the lives, the customs and the traditions of those who have enmity for Islam. This can be observed by the way they talk, walk, eat, drink, and by their behavior and manners. They have become so engrossed in mimicking the life styles of enemies that they have also made their children and women follow that un-Islamic way of life.

They think they are the true lovers of Allah and the Prophet Muhammad (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) and in actions, they are with the enemies of Allah and His Prophet Muhammad (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam), can we ever class this as true love?!

Our respected brothers and sisters of Islam! Listen, and listen attentively! The King of Madina, the Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) had spent his days and nights in such a way that he never forgot remembering Allah. It is this style of life, which will enable us to be successful in the Hereafter.
