Salaam Alaikum Maulana Musawi We pray for your good health and tawfiq to enlighten the muslim community and be rewarded by Allah swt..Ameen. I wish to know what is best advise when making graves with a headstone and surrounding boundary with marble stone -Is it better to cover the top with a concrete slab and place gravel on it or is it better to leave the top open with grass/flowers growing? [Both these types are currently done in the Graveyards] please advise Ahsant and Jazzakallah khair inshallah
 
Answer:-  The grave must be safe from animals which may dig or make holes in it. That
is why covering the grave with any solid material is important. Growing
flowers on the grave has no value at all as it does not give the deceased
any benefit.
Wassalam.

Question ID  1289  -  Death Related Issues
Salam Alaikum Sayed Musawi A few months ago i assisted in giving Ghusal and Kafan to a momeema.Her daughter now rang me and told me that she wants to give me a gift and i have refused it because to the best of my knowledge we shouldn't take anything for that.Am i doing the right thing? Jazakallah
 
Answer:-  Giving Ghusl to Muslim dead is obligatory and no money should be taken for
it because it is a religious duty, but if she wants to give you a gift,
there is no harm in accepting the gift although if you do not accept the
gift, there is no wrong in that as well. It is for you to decide.
In general we do not encourage such gift because it might create an
impression of remuneration which is not allowed.
Wassalam.

Question ID  1286  -  Death Related Issues
Salam alaikum Sayed musawi If a person dies and the burial is only possible after a few days is it compulsary to give the body ghusal and kafan immdiately or is it better to wait till the day of the burial since there might be a problem and then we might have to give the ghusal and kafan again. Jazakallah
 
Answer:-  Ghusl and Kafan are obligatory for every Muslim who dies, on those who know
about the death and are able to perform Ghusl and Kafan for him. The time
of Ghusl is any time before burial.
It is better to perform Ghusl and Kafan before burial and not long time
before that as there is a possibility of the Kafan becoming Najis, then it
will be compulsory to make it Taahir before burial.
Wassalam.

Question ID  1093  -  Death Related Issues
my father had not read any namaz or kept any roza in his full life he expired on 3rd dec 2013 in house he was 65 years of age ... so can i and some people read his qaza namaz and how much to read pls help
 
Answer:-  All the Namaz and fasting that he missed in his life is to be performed on
his behalf as Qaza. If he has left any wealth, you must take from his
wealth the cost of Qaza on his behalf. If he has not left any wealth, then
you and your family may perform Qaza on his behalf to save him from sever
punishment.
Wassalam.

Question ID  1056  -  Death Related Issues
Salam alaykum Syed I hope you are in the best of health InshaAllah. I have a number of questions, which I hope that you can offer your advice on. They are mostly all related to death and I will list them below: 1) Is it possible for a person to have knowledge that they are going to die? Taking into consideration that they do not have any life threatening illness. 2) Can you please explain barzakh? The time between death and resurrection. If someone has lived a pious life and followed all the wajibats, what is barzakh for them? 3) I once heard that when we are asleep and see a dream, the events we see are actually taking place, and our soul leaves our body while we are dreaming. Is this true? - If our soul leaves our body during a dream, and we see a loved one who has passed away, and we converse with them, is this actually happening, or is it just memories that we see, or is it imagination? 4) One a person has died and their body is buried, is that person still present in our life, such as are they able to see their family and their progresses? 5) I have heard about certain Amal we can do in order to see our parents who have passed away. Can you please advise the procedure for doing this. 6) What other things, aside from surah Yasin, ziyarat ashura and visiting of the grave, can we do in order to make the soul of our loved one happy and help for their hereafter. Please accept my apologies for such a long message. With duas Mazaher Karim

A6) Performing all their dues e.g. Salat, fasting , Khums, Haj , any loans
or rights of others on them.
Charity on behalf of the deceased is very helpful to him as well as
Istighfaar and Salawaat.
