موت کا ایک دن مقرر ہے

موت کا ایک دن مقرر ہے‘‘ کیا اس کا مطلب موت کے یقینی ہونے کو بیان کرنا ہے یا واقعی کوئی وقت مقرر ہے؟


Mourning Death

What is the etiquette when someone passes away in your family? Can you cry? I ask this because some Ahle Hadees people say that you have to show patience. No crying. They also mention that when someone dies Allah sends angels to check what are the family members doing. If they are crying and mourning then Allah asks the angels to whip the person who has passed away. I find it strange. Is there something like this?

Reward For Works Of Future Good

I have studied your writings about transfer of reward to the deceased but could not understand that nobody will carry the burden of another one. Everyone will get the reward of his efforts. What about the events which are mentioned in your answers? If someone plants a tree or digs a well or builds a block of some religious institution, all beneficial to the public, will he be rewarded?

Honor Killing

I am a student of law and presently working on the comparative study of murder and homicide law in Islam and in the Western legal tradition. While doing research on the topic of honour killings I came across with the various judgments of Pakistani courts and of other Islamic countries courts wherein the judges viewed such killings as justified for various reasons:

1. the adulterous is otherwise liable to be punished with death,

2. the murder is committed because of ghairat and the prophet (pbh) has asked people to defend their ghariat,

3.murder is committed because of IZTARAR

4. the person who commits adultery becomes ghair Masoom-ud-dam

5. the killing is done in the discharge of duty which rests upon every Muslim to eliminate evil in possible ways.

These are the five main contentions with some more flimsy reason/grounds they consider while dealing with such murderers with indulgence. I have some very serious objections on all of their arguments. Firstly, Nobody in Islam is allowed to take law in his own hands. Secondly, if the people committing adultery are murdered how the murderer would prove that they were committing such an act which was liable for the death penalty. Thirdly, in saying this he should have brought the evidence which is required to prove the offence of zina - four witnesses who had seen the commission of the sexual acts. Fourthly, no individual can declare another individual a gair Masum-ud-dam. Fifthly, the obligation to eliminate the evil cannot be extended to an extent wherein the wrongdoer may be killed.

There is a lot which my research suggests but I would like to take benefit of your opinion before concluding my research on this topic. I shall be very grateful if you could explain the issue with reference to some primary sources of Islamic law.

Untimely Deaths

My mother passed away in March 2010 in a road accident. I my father suffered a heart attack and departed me in May 2011. These incidents have left me a bitter victim of hopeless, disparity and disappointment. I find myself always praying to God to end my life as soon as possible. My question from you is: Isn’t it injustice from God to take the parents from children at a time when they have grown up? The parents have spent all their pleasures and income on their children for these days. Why do they depart when they should be reaping the benefit of their labor and love? Can I meet my parents in the next world?

Doing Good In The Hands Of Death

There are some life threatening diseases about which, doctors predict the possible time of death with 99% accuracy. It is because the disease is very dangerous and there is no treatment. Common examples are cancers which already spread to all body (metastasis) or full blown AIDS etc. Doctors usually advise the patient to accept it and to do all things what they want to do for their children or themselves before death. In such cases how a Muslim should react?

1)Can he/she still believe that a miracle could happen? I saw many cases in which usually patient died within the time period (more or less) given especially in metastasis cancers.
2)If he/she accepts that he/she soon going to die, according to latest science research,. and tries to arrange something for his kids or family before dying would it be sin?
4)If he/she would become good Muslim in practice after knowing about his short life Allah would accept his/her good (deeds) after knowing that he/she is soon going to die?
5)What is the best du’a (prayer) he should make during this time?

Why Doesn’t God Help The Innocent Victims?

I have a question that you see many innocent people dying in the world either by natural disasters or by attacks from police or some criminals.

میں یہ جاننا چاہتا ہون کہ اتمام حجت کے بعد جب عذاب اتر آئے تب عین جنگ کے دوران اگر کوئی منکر ایمان لے آئے اور پھر اسے قتل کر دیا جائے تو کیا وہ فرعونی کی طرح کافر ہی قرار پائے گا یا اس کا ایمان قابل قبول ہو گا؟ برائے مہربانی وضاحت فرمائیں۔

میں یہ جاننا چاہتی ہوں کہ اگر کسی عورت کا شوہر وفات پا جائے اور عدت پوری ہونے کے بعد وہ عورت دوسرے مرد سے شادی کر لے تو کیا جنت میں اسے اپنے دونوں خاوندوں سے شادی کرنی ہو گی۔ برائے مہربانی رہنمائی فرمائیے۔

حضرت عیسیٰ علیہ السلام کے حوالے سے قرآن مجید میں 'مُتَوَفِّيْكَ' کا لفظ آیا ہے ، اس کے حوالے سے میں آپ کی راے جاننا چاہتا ہوں۔ آپ اس کا ترجمہ باقی لوگوں سے مختلف کیوں کرتے ہیں؟


آیۃ الکرسی کی فضیلت سے متعلق ایک سوال

آیۃ الکرسی کی فضیلت سے متعلق بعض کتابوں میں یہ لکھا ہے کہ اِس کے پڑھنے والے کو یہ مقام حاصل ہوتا ہے کہ موت کے وقت اُس کی روح خود اللہ تعالٰی قبض کرتے ہیں۔ معلوم یہ کرنا ہے کہ دین میں اِس فضیلت کا ماخذ کیا ہے اور کیا واقعتاً دین میں آیۃ الکرسی پڑھنے کی یہ فضیلت ثابت ہے؟
