Regarding ‘Unjust’ Punishment In The Grave?

I have just read the above thread on your website:‘Unjust’ Punishment in the Grave?) I don't understand what you are talking about. Your argument is not coherent nor sound.

1.Firstly you assume that "the third question concerns the sins mentioned in this Hadith. Obviously, they are of two different categories. While the first is not a major sin, the second definitely is." While the Ḥadīth clearly states: "These two persons are being tortured not for a major sin"

2.The Ḥadīth does not state the nature of the punishment, it just mentions that the inhabitants are being punished so why do you question "How can the punishment of the two be the same"?

3.Now regarding, "Punishing a person who soils his clothes with urine seems unjustified unless, of course, there are other details to this matter." It shows us that to protect oneself against the impurity of urine (as of other foul & dirty things) i.e., to save one's body or clothes from being soiled with them is one of the principal commands of Allah and negligence in these matters is a sin of such a high order as to entail the chastisement of the grave.

4.Under what license can you assert "What it means is that once the leaves have dried out the punishment would restart!"? Regarding "placing a green leaf as a means to lessen their torture" stating "this is something which is totally inexplicable." The correct opinion is, that the Prophet (sws) prayed for the reduction in the punishment of the occupiers & he (sws) was bidden to do what he did with the assurance that the chastisement would remain abated as long as the two pieces did not dry up altogether.

On a more closing note, if you do not honour your mission statement then you are part of the tempest and your above opinion obviously excludes you from aiding the "revolution in the intellectual and mental perspectives" when you can't even interpret a simple English statement correctly! You are a joke.

Greeting While Visiting The Prophet’s Grave

When we visit the grave of prophet (sws) we say assalaamu alaykum yā ayyuhā al-Nabi (Peace be upon you O Prophet (sws) as if he is alive or in front of us. My question is what we can say when visiting the graves of other pious people called awliya of Allah? Can we address them in a similar wording or we should say something like this as-salamu-alaikum ya ahl al-kubur (Peace be upon you O residents of the graves)? What about visiting the graveyard of the non-Muslims?

Women Visiting The Graves

Please give me reference of the hadith which says that in the days of the Prophet (sws), women were initially stopped from visiting the graves because they used to vociferously wail. Once the women had learned to restrain themselves at such places, they were allowed to visit the graveyards.
