THE NEED FOR REVIVAL OF MUSLIMS - PART – 25

In the name of Allah the most beneficent and most merciful


THE LIFE AFTER DEATH


Followers of some Muslim sects reject the concept of 'Life after Death' as illogical and absurd. They claim that after death, people cannot talk or listen. To prove their claim, they quote the following Quranic verse.

It is in Quran ‘ Nor or the living and the dead alike, Allah (SWT) surely will make hear to whoever He will like. (O’Prophet-SAWS)), you cannot make those hear who are in graves’. (Al-Fater – 22).

If anyone agrees to the above line of thinking, he will have to deny the following verses of Quran and Ahadith.

(i) It is in Quran – ‘Think not of those, who are martyred in the way of Allah, as dead. No, they are living with their Lord and are provided with food’. (Aal-e-Imran – 169).

(ii) It is in Quran – ‘ Those who die in the way of Allah (SWT), do not call them as dead. They are alive, but you do not understand it’. (Al-Baqara – 154).

(iii) It is in Quran – ‘But verily the Home in the Hereafter, that is life indeed, if they, but knew. (Al-Ankaboot – 64).

(iv) It is in Hadith - Prophet (saws) said: "Whoever asks blessings for me at my grave, I hear him, and whoever asks blessings upon me from afar, it is conveyed to me." (This tradition was mentioned by al-'Uqayli, and al-Khateeb and Ibn 'Asakir.

(v) It is in Hadith - Abu Talhah reported: "On the day of the Battle of Badr, Allah's Prophet (SAWS) ordered that the bodies of twenty-four leaders of the Quraysh be thrown into one of the foul, abandoned wells of Badr. On the third day after the battle the Prophet called for his mount and saddled it. Then he set out, so his companions followed him. They said amongst themselves, "He must be going to something important." When the Prophet (SAWS) arrived at the well, he stood at its edge and began addressing those therein by calling upon them by their names, "O so and so, son of so and so; and you, so and so, son of so and so! Would it not have been easier to have obeyed Allah and His Messenger? We have found that which our Lord promised us to be true. Did you find what your Lord promised you to be true? Thereupon 'Umar said, "O Messenger of Allah, what are you saying to these bodies without souls?! Do they hear? For Allah, the Majestic and Mighty, says, "Verily, you cannot make the dead hear. The Prophet (SAWS) answered, "By Him in whose hand lies the soul of Mohammad, you did not hear better than them and what I just said." (Bukhari and Muslim).

(vi) It is in Hadith - Anas bin Malik reported that Allah's Messenger (SAWS) said: ‘After the deceased (dead) is placed in his grave and his companions turn to leave, he hears the shuffling of their feet as they walk away. Then there comes to him the two angels.’ (Part of Hadith) (Bukhari and Muslim).

(vii) It is in Hadith - narrated by Abdullah Bin Abbas (RU) that the Prophet (SAWS) said, ‘whoever goes by the grave of a believer and offers salutation (says Assalamu alaikum) to him, the believer recognizes him and answers back the salutation’.

(viii) It is in Hadith - Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) said ‘Whoever visits my grave, my intercession will be guaranteed for him’. This is Hasan (fair) narration as concluded by the great scholar Taqi al-Din al-Subki in his book Shifa al-Siqam.

(ix) It is in Hadith - Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) said ‘when you go to the graves of the dead, say ‘Assalamu alaikum ya ahlal quboor’ – meaning ‘peace be upon you O’ people of graves’.

(x) Ibn Abdul Wahab Najdi At Tamimi in his book "Ahkam Tamanni al Mawt" has mentioned an important narration, reproduced below.

QUOTE : During the time of Omar (RU) there was a very pious young man. Once this young man was about to commit a grave sin, but Allah (SWT) saved him. This young man realized his mistake, felt very bad and died. When Omar (RU) came to know this, he visited the grave of this young man and asked “ do you have two gardens “ ( Ar-Rahman - 46 ) and this young man replied from the grave that he has been given the blessings of two gardens”…. UNQUOTE

(xi) Almost all famous scholars (Akabir) of Ahle Hadith/Deoband/Tablighi Jama'at/Jama'at-e-Islami etc., like Rashid Gangohi, Qasim Nanotwi, Ya’qub Nanotwi, Ashraf ‘Ali Thanwi, Mahmood al-Hasan, Husayn Ahmad Tandvee and many more had taken Bayyah (allegiance) on the hands of Imdadullah Muhajir Makki. Meaning, Muhajir Makki was teacher / Shaikh / Emir and Murshid of these groups.

Imdadullah Muhajir Makki, the Grand Shaikh of these groups writes in his book “ Haft Masla” as follows.

(QUOTE) ' sub title - Calling Upon Someone (dead) other than Allah' ...Therefore, calling someone (who is dead) from a distance, either for remembrance, desirous of union or anxiety of separation, just like a lover calls his beloved, to give consolation to his heart, is not a sin. The other sort of calling is where the caller wishes that the called one actually hears the call. In this case, if the caller, through the cleanliness of his heart is seeing the person called spiritually (from the eyes of his heart), such a call is permitted. If however, the caller does not see the called one but believes that the called one will receive his message through some means supported by evidence, even then the call is permitted…. From this we get the permission of the Wazifa : " Ya Sheikh Syed Abdul Qadir Sheun Lillah’. If anyone considers that the Shaikh can help with the power he possesses of his own, it will be tending towards Shirk. But if the Shaikh is considered as "Wasila" (means) or these words are uttered with an empty mind considering them to carry "Barakah" (blessings), then there is nothing wrong with them (UNQUOTE)

The above Quranic verses, Ahadith and quotes should resolve the issue of dead once and for all.

However, the followers of these groups do not accept things easily. What they do is they go back to their books and try get some more evidence to prove their contentions. If they do not find what they want, they change their books to suit their beliefs. They insist to draw meanings of Quranic verses as per their choice. This unjustifiable insistence on their part is the main cause of their misunderstanding of many things related to Islamic faith and practices.

In order to see the truth of their claim, let us discuss if they have understood correctly the Quranic verses they always mention in support of their wrong beliefs.

They always refer the following 2 verses of Quran, and interpret 'out of context' meanings of these verses to support their argument.

(1) "Verily you cannot make the dead hear and you can not make the deaf hear the call when they turn their backs and retreat." (An-Naml – 80).

(2) "The living and the dead are not alike. Allah makes whoever he wishes hear, but you cannot make those in the graves hear.’ (Al-Fatir - 22).

Verse No. 1 was quoted in Quran with reference to disbelievers of Makka. The people who do not have Iman in their hearts are like dead people. To understand this verse better, read the verse which is mentioned immediately after this verse. We have quoted below both these verses together for our readers to understand factual meanings of these verses.

It is in Quran - "Verily you cannot make the dead hear and you can not make the deaf hear the call when they turn their backs and retreat (verse 80). Nor can you lead the blind out of their error. You cannot make none to hear except those who believe (in) our revelations and who have surrendered (themselves to Islam) (verse 81) ” (An-Naml - 80-81)

We now understand from the above verses that the word ‘dead’ is used to mean the disbelievers and not those who are actually dead.

Let us study verse No. 2 to find out its true meaning.

Verse No. (2) "The living and the dead are not alike. Allah makes whoever he wishes hear, but you cannot make those in the graves hear.’ (Al-Fatir - 22).

To find out its actual meaning, let us study 3 verses immediately before this verse.

It is in Quran (Sura Al-Fater) – ‘The blind and the seeing are not alike (verse 19) ; Nor are the depth of darkness and the light (verse 20); Nor are the (chilly) shade and the (genial - gracious) heat of the sun (verse 21); Nor are alike those that are living and those that are dead, Allah (SWT) can make any, that He wills, to hear, but you (O’Prophet SAWS) cannot make those to hear who are (buried) in graves (verse 22). (Al-Fater – 19-22). (Yousuf Ali translation).

Verse 19, ‘the blind and the seeing are not alike’. This has reference to Makkan polytheists. Allah (SWT) is referring them as blind because they do not have the light of Iman in their hearts.

Verse 20, ‘the depth of darkness and light is not alike’, meaning, Kuffars’ hearts are covered with depth of the darkness.

Verse 21, the chilly shade and gracious heat of the sun cannot be alike, meaning, the the polytheists of Makka are not benefited from the gracious heat of Iman that is emanating from Prophet Mohammad (SAWS). Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) is referred to as the Sun of Iman (faith) for the people of this world.

Verse 22 has three parts.

Part (22.1), ‘the living and dead are not alike’ - meaning, the polytheists of Makka and Muslims are not the same. There are many Quranic verses that refer polytheists as Dead people because they do not have the noor (light) of Iman in their hearts. Please go to Quran search on internet you will find many verses in this regard.

Part (22.2), ‘Allah (SWT) can make any that He wills to hear’, meaning, Allah (SWT) has the omnipotence (power) to make anyone hear - which means He can give Iman to anyone he wishes.

Part (22.3), (O’Prophet-SAWS) you cannot make those dead bodies hear (listen) that have been buried in the graves’. Since Mushrikeen are being discussed in all these verses, this part of the verse naturally refers to them who are like dead people in the absence of the light of Iman in their hearts. Thus,the entire sequence of verses, from 19-22 mentioned above refer to the Makkan polytheists and not to the actual dead.

Even if we take the textual meaning of verse 22 above, it is true that 'dead bodies that have been buried in the graves cannot hear or talk. The Life after Death is not related to our Dead bodies. These bodies get decomposed gradually and become part of Mud. Life cannot be associated with these bodies. The life after death is totally different and not related with dead bodies. We have discussed this issue in detail in the following paragraphs.

If anyone deliberately denies Quranic verses, or knowingly misinterprets Quranic verses and Ahadith, or deliberately mentions an out of context Quranic verse to prove his wrong beliefs, or trys to prove a good (Hasan) Hadith as fabricated (maudhu), or plays with religious Arabic terminology to confuse people; in all these cases, he is inviting a lot of trouble for himself on the Day of Judgment. Islam is not a political arena where you try to establish wrong as right. It is important that people do not misuse Islam in their political and leadership games. Salafis and their like minded groups should take a note of it.

With the above rational understanding, we do not have to deny or misinterpret following Quranic verses and many more Ahadith in this context.

It is in Quran – ‘ Those who die in the way of Allah (SWT), do not call them as dead. They are alive, but you do not understand it’. (Al-Baqara – 154).

It is in Quran – ‘Think not of those, who are martyred in the way of Allah, as dead. No, they are living with their Lord and are provided with food’. (Aal-e-Imran – 169).

It is in Quran – ‘But verily the Home in the Hereafter, that is life indeed, if they, but knew. (Al-Ankaboot – 64).

With the above explanation, we expect that the issue of dead shall be resolved permanently.

However, even after reading the above, some members of these groups may still not be satisfied. They may argue that the meanings of the verses provided in this article are the interpretations of the Author, etc. Therefore, for argument sake let us accept the Salafi logic and discuss this issue further.

The problem with these groups is they have misunderstood the entire issue. When we talk of life after death, they think that we are talking about a dead body coming to life in the Grave. No this is wrong. How can a dead body come to life in the Grave? As a matter of fact the dead body gets decomposed under the heap of earth and gradually becomes part of mud. After certain period of time we bury other people in the same grave.

To understand what actually happens when we die, please read the following carefully.


What happens when a person dies?


The five basic attributes of human beings, viz., (1) Life, (2) Knowledge, (3) Seeing, (4) Hearing, (5) Speech, (6) power, and (7) intention, actually belong to the soul.

The human body is the place of residence of human soul. When we die, our soul gets associated with a new body (invisible to our physical eyes) suitable with the Life after death.

Whether human soul is associated with the physical body of this world or the body of the Life after death, these attributes remain with it. Meaning, the attributes of human soul remain unchanged irrespective of the body it gets associated with, as per the requirements of different worlds.

When a person’s life span in this world comes to an end, two subordinate angels of Izra’il (AS) appear before him and remove his soul from the body (Hadith). Another body, as per the requirement of the World after Death (which is invisible to our physical eyes ) is provided to the soul.

They leave the dead body and the soul (in the new body) at the place of death until the dead body is buried in the grave.

Our association with physical world comes to an end when our body is buried into the grave. Gradually, our body becomes decomposed under the ground and becomes part of the mud. Since the soul has been detached from physical body, it loses all the faculties of life, hearing, seeing, everything.

After burial of the dead body, two angels appear in the grave (Hadith) and ask the dead person three questions, (i) Who is your Sustainer (Rab)? (ii) What is your religion? (iii) A picture of Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) is shown to the dead person and he is asked to identify who is he? If the answers to these questions are (i) My Sustainer (Rab) is Allah (SWT), (ii) My religion is Islam, and (iii) This is my beloved Prophet Mohammad (SAWS), he passes the test.

As per Allah’s (SWT) promise in Quran, the treatment of Muslims after death depends upon their ‘Taqwa’ and their closeness with Allah (SWT) and Prophet Mohammad (SAWS).

The dead persons can be divided into the following five categories.

(1) Awliya Allah who pass the test.
(2) Good Muslims/Saaliheen who pass the test.
(3) General Muslims who pass the test.
(4) Sinful Muslims who could not answer properly.
(5) Non-Muslims and Muslim Sects who fail the test.

Whether the dead person is good or bad, Muslim or non-Muslim, he gets transferred to the WAD (World after death) for all practical purposes. Whether he is subjected to torment or recompense, everything related to him is done in WAD only.

The torment (Azab) or recompense (Thawab) in WAD (World after Death) is associated with the new body that has been given to the soul when people die. Even in hell also, when the given body is burnt, a new body gets associated with the person and the torment continues for ever.

The torment of grave is also not associated with the mud grave where our dead bodies are buried. Mud grave is used only for decomposition of our physical bodies that were provided to us in this world.

However, the place of his burial becomes the place of connection for him with our World.

Let us discuss briefly what happens to the above 5 categories of people in the World after Death.

NON MUSLIMS AND MUSLIM SECTS WHO FAIL THE TEST

People who do not have correct Islamic faith are treated as Non-Muslims. My bothers and sisters, do not be under any illusions about it. This is the reason Prophet (SAWS) said, out of 73 sects, only one will go the paradise and the rest will go the Hell. They are identified by the angels who conduct the test. After the test,the Non-Muslims and people belonging to different Muslim Sects are put to unending torment which continues till the resurrection and beyond and there is no hope of salvation of these people.

Some Non-Muslims’ bodies are burnt by their relatives after their death. Some people die in oceans where their bodies are eaten by fishes and sea mammals. Since physical bodies have no role in the World after death, the punishment or otherwise of these dead people is given to the new bodies provided to them at the time of their death.

SINFUL MUSLIMS

If it is decided, after the question/answer session, that the sinful Muslim has to be subjected to torment for his past crimes, he is punished in a special lock up room in WAD (world after death). This room has a connection from our world at the place where he was buried. This is the reason, it is in Hadith that Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) placed a small stem of a tree on the grave of a person and said that as long as it is green, it will be doing Allah’s Zikr, and with this Zikr, the torment of the Dead person will be reduced. Since Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) saw the punishment of the grave, he placed the green stem on the grave.

Who ever goes to the grave of the dead and reads Quran there and prays Allah (SWT) to extend benefit of the recompense of the reading of Quran to the dead person, it helps the dead tremendously. It is expected that his punishment will be reduced from our repeated visits to the grave and reading of Quran there.

If the dead man has passed the test and is in good condition in WAD (world after death), our reading of Quran for recompense (Eisal-e-thawab) helps him to get additional rewards.

It is not compulsory to read Quran sitting beside the grave, we can also read Quran in our homes and pray Allah (SWT) to have mercy on our dead relatives. We can feed the poor and do so many other things of charity for the sake of our dead relatives. The Fateha and feeding of poor we do for our dead relatives, helps them in World after Death.

Eisal-e-thawab and visiting of graves and many things like these are optional. If you do, your dead relatives are benefited. If you don’t, it is up to you. These issues have nothing to do with basic Islamic faith.

There are many categories of sinful human beings. The torment in the World after Death is given to them as per their sins in this world. After certain period, these torments are stopped and these people are allowed to sleep peacefully till the day of resurrection.

MUSLIMS WHO PASS THE TEST

An average Muslim who passes the test, is provided with a special room in WAD (world after death) which has a window of Jannah opened for him from where he gets cool breeze. He is made to sleep on a special bed till resurrection. He will get up from his sleep on the day of resurrection. The sleeping Muslims do have a connection with our world at the place of their burial. When we go to the graves of the dead who are sleeping, they hardly notice us, but they get to know that someone has visited them from the world. Our visits are like knock at the door of their rooms. They listen to the knock, but hardly talk to us.

GOOD MUSLIMS/SAALIHEEN WHO PASS THE TEST

A good Muslim who passes the test is not required to sleep. He is provided with good housing and food in WAD (World after Death). They are free men and women. When we visit the graves of such people they listen to our Salams, reply to the salutation. They listen to whatever is told to them. It is just like visiting some of our relatives in this world. But the problem is we cannot see them, but they do see us and listen to whatever is told to them. Whether you tell them by mouth or think in your hearts, they listen to it and understand it well. The rules of listening, talking in World after Death are completely different from our world. They are free people. Allah’s (SWT) mercy is on them in abundance. Why not, Allah (SWT) had promised them(during their life time in this world)of a good and comfortable life after death.

It is in Quran – ‘Think not of those, who are martyred in the way of Allah, as dead. No, they are living with their Lord and are provided with food’. (Aal-e-Imran – 169).

It is in Hadith, Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) said ‘when you go to the graves of the dead, say ‘Assalamu alaikum ya ahlal quboor’ – meaning ‘peace be upon you O’ people of graves’.

When we meet each other in this world also, we are required to say ‘Assalamu Alaikum’, meaning peace be upon you. This greeting is returned by ‘Wa’alaikum Assalam’, meaning, peace be upon you too.

It is in another Hadith narrated by Hazrat Abdullah Bin Abbas (RU) that the Prophet (SAWS) said, ‘whoever goes by the grave of a believer and offers salutation (says Assalamu alaikum) to him, the believer recognizes him and answers back the salutation’.

AWLIYA ALLAH/SHAIKHS OF IHSAN WHO PASS THE TEST

Awliya Allah and Shaikhs of Ihsan, after passing their test, receive exceptional welcome ovation and princely treatment in World after Death.

It is in Quran – ‘ Those who die in the way of Allah (SWT), do not call them as dead. They are alive, but you do not understand it’. (Al-Baqara – 154).

It is in Quran – ‘But verily the Home in the Hereafter, that is life indeed, if they, but knew. (Al-Ankaboot – 64).

They live in the ‘life of comforts’ after death until resurrection. There are many categories of Awliya Allah. They are treated as per their status awarded to them from Allah (SWT) both in this world and in Hereafter.

As has been the case with everyone else, Awliya Allah also have a connection with our world at the place of their burials.

The physical bodies which were provided to Awliya Allah in our world also get decomposed in the ground, but in some special cases, Allah (SWT) protects their bodies also.

I know two incidents of this kind. A friend of mine named Naseer al Deen who was responsible to take care of a Muslim burial in India once told me of an episode of a grave. He told me that after long years of burial, when no one visits certain graves, they open them and bury the newly dead as they have limited space in the graveyard. He told me that, on one such occasion they opened a very old grave(about 50/60 years old) in order to bury the new dead. He was surprised to see the dead body of a woman in the grave as fresh as she was buried a few minutes earlier. He told me there was not even a spot of dirt on her white cloth (kaffan). They immediately closed the grave and instructed all concerned never ever to touch that grave again. I was also informed by a friend in Saudi Arabia that such occurrences are usual in Saudi Arabia also and the authorities there do not touch such grave for reburial. Many people who are responsible for Muslim grave yards throughout the world will testify to this phenomenon.

When we visit the graves of Awliya Allah, they listen to whatever is told to them. Whoever informs them of any of his problems, they do take note of it. While they pray to Allah (SWT) in their special residences provided to them in World after Death, they pray for all Muslims of the world in general, particularly for those who visited their graves.

It is a wrong notion that Muslims pray at the graves of Awliya Allah. This talk is nonsensical, purely biased, and misleading. How dare you accuse a Muslim to be a grave worshiper? A person who is crazy, devoid of common sense,lunatic and blind by birth can only talk like this.

Some Muslim sects also scare people from the word ‘Dua’ and its reference with graves. Words in every language, including Arabic, carry different meanings. Like the Arabic word ‘Ghulam’ has several meanings. It can be used for a ‘son’, or ‘servant’ or ‘student’, etc. Similarly, the word ‘Dua’ is used in two meanings. When we are supplicating to Allah (SWT), the word 'Dua' is used in the meaning of prayer. With reference to human beings, its meaning are ‘request’. Also, there is an English word 'Lord'. It is used in so many meanings like, God, Judge, Member of Parliament, owner of a plot of land/property, etc. Salafis confuse people in religious issues by playing with Arabic terminology.

Prostration in front of a human being, as a mark of respect, has never been Shirk throughout the history of mankind. If this was Shirk, Allah (SWT) would not have asked angels to prostrate in front of Adam(AS). You think Allah (SWT) would ask angels to do Shirk? (Astaghrifullahi). If it was shirk, Hazrat Yaqoob (AS)and his sons would not have prostrated in front of Hazrat Yousef (AS).

It is the extreme humility of a perfect human being that Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) stopped it (Hadith). Now to prostrate in front of any one as a mark of respect(Sajda-e-Ta'azeemi) is not allowed in Islam. Therefore, it is Haram. A person who gets involved in a sin, or indulges in a prohibitive act (Haram) is a sinner. But, he remains a Muslim. If you treat a sinner as polytheist, then you are a Mu'atazilite.

Kissing of hands and feet as a mark of respect is allowed in Islam. It is in Hadith, narrated by Safwan bin Assal (it is a very long Hadith in which two Jews asked Prophet Mohammad -SAWS several questions and the Prophet - SAWS answered all of them) then Hazrat Safwan says both Jews kissed Prophet's (SAWS) hands and feet".(Tirmizi, Nasai, Abu Dawood, etc.)

A person may kiss the grave of his mother, father or an Awliya Allah thinking that he is kissing the hands /feet of these people who are alive in World After Death. What is wrong in it? Where is the Shirk involved in it? How can you equate the grave of a pious Muslim with an idol of Hindu diety? This type of talk shows the vacuum in your mind that is holding you from understanding Islamic faith and practices. Say "Astaghfirullahal Azeem" a few hundred times everyday so that Allah's (SWT)mercy turns towards you and you start understanding these issue properly. In case if you are not comfortable with these practices, don't visit graves. But, for God sake don't accuse a true Muslim, to be a grave worshiper. It is in Hadith, if you call a sincere Muslim, as polytheist, then the effect of polytheism comes back upon you and you become eligible for punishment for this unpardonable crime.

When we visit a high ranking government official or a parliamentarian of our area in this world, we respectfully narrate our problems to them and request them to help us in this regard. This respectful narration in Urdu language is known as 'Istedua'. The literal/textual meaning of this word is to do 'Dua in a standing respectable position'. Similarly, in legal Courts, people use English word 'Prayer' to address the Judge for his consideration. There are thousands of examples of this kind in every language of the world.

Salafis and their like minded groups have the habit of misinterpreting simple issues, make a mountain out of a mole, scare people and take them away from rightful beliefs of Islam.

Muslims who visit the graves of Awliya Allah respectfully inform them about their problems and request these pious souls to supplicate to Allah (SWT) to alleviate their problems.

What a parliamentarian, a Government official or an Awliya Allah can do personally except that they use their good offices and put a word to the appropriate authorities. The ultimate help comes only by Allah (SWT). We are all Muslims and we believe in it.

I do not understand why people associate Shirk with these simple issues. If you cannot understand the issues of World After Death, do not visit graves. Visiting of graves has nothing to do with Islamic faith. It is optional. You will remain a Muslim even if you do not visit graves. What is the big deal in it.

Can there be an eye witness in our world who is provided with special vision to see the Life after Death?

It is proved by Hadith-e-Nabawi (SAWS) that Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) saw the life after death. Read famous Hadith-e-Badr mentioned above in which Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) talked to the dead Mushrikeen. Prophet Mohammad (SAWS) met with earlier Prophets during Mera’j.

If with Allah’s (SWT) beneficence, someone is given the spiritual vision with which he could see the world after death, it is possible.

Those who are provided with this vision, are generally restricted and not allowed to disclose the happenings of the World after Death to people of this world because certain things are required to be kept secret from the people of this world.

All verses of Quran and Ahadith that talk of World after Death are not related to the dead body which is buried in the grave. These are related to the new body which is provided to our soul when we die. The word grave in these references indicate the places of residence in World After Death (Barzaq) and not the mud grave in which our dead bodies are buried.

The standards of living in our ‘Physical world’ and in ‘World after Death’ are totally different from each other. The body of ‘Life after Death’ is different from our physical bodies. Our physical eyes are restricted from witnessing ‘World After Death’. But if you can get special lenses appropriate with that world, you can also see them. Pray Allah (SWT) to reward you with these lenses rather than wasting time in rejecting the Quranic verses and Ahadiths by wrong interpretations.

We hope that the above explanations are sufficient to rest this issue once and for all. I am positive that insha-Allah, after reading the above explanation, no one in the world will ever have any doubt in the issue of World After Death.

A sensible person can easily understand these facts. If someone is strong headed, adamant, egoistic and refuses to accept plain facts and rejects overwhelming evidences about 'Life After Death', what can we say. It is his hard luck.



Part 26 will be made available soon.
