On death

Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raaji’un (to Allah we belong and to Him we return).

After the death of a person his actions stop, except three things that he leaves behind : First continuous charity, Second a knowledge from which some benefit may be obtained, Third a virtuous son who makes Dua’ (Pray, supplicate) on his behalf.

Hadith of prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam, as narrated in Muslim

May we all raise a generation such that when we pass on, they will fullfill this great sunnah, rather than squable over the measly financial crumbs we will leave behind. And may we leave behind much more good than ill. Ameen.

  2. Muslim in Hijab, Wa Alaikum Salam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu! Darling ukhti, thanks for asking…but there was absolutely no need; that was not my original writing, I “stole” it from the Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam… 🙂 Alhamdulillah that the Hadith and Qur’an are copy-right free!

    Very timely post. You may have heard of the passing on of Sheikh Saifur Rahman Mubarakpuri, author of Ar-Raheeq Al-Makhtoom (The Sealed Nectar), may Allah (AWJ) have mercy on his soul, and on us now that we are deprived of so much knowledge…

  6. Uzer, no, I had not until you mentioned it. Inna lillah wa inna ilayhi raji’oon. May Allah grant him jannah for the brilliant legacy he has left behind for us and our subsequent generations. Ameen. The post was actually about the loved one of a loved one. And it reminded me of another beloved of our own. So, its for all our deceased, and for everytime we feel the loss…
