Is it correct that the Prophet (sws) answers those who send blessings on him in the grave. I have been told that the Prophet (sws) himself has said that whenever someone invokes Allah’s blessings for him, Allah returns the soul to his body until he replies to his salutation. Is the Hadith authentic?
The text of the Hadith follows:
Abu Hurayrah narrated that the Prophet (sws) said: Whenever someone sends blessings upon me the Almighty return me my soul so that I respond to it. (Abu Da’ud, No: 2041)
None has narrated this Hadith from Yazid except for Abu Sakhar…
My wife died due to CA Ovary. I have read in the Sahih of Bukhari that if a patient dies due to abdomen problem he is "Shaheed". Can you please put some light on this?
The traditions which tell us that people who die of some particular diseases or accidents are shaheed are not taken in literal sense. Taking them in literal sense does not correspond to the express teachings of the Qur'an. Therefore, we need to interpret them or keep them under consideration. We believe that shaheed as a term of Islamic religious literature is one who spends his life in the struggle of uplifting the word of God…
What is the Islamic stance on punishment in graves? Does not this belief negate the idea of God being just?
The information regarding punishment in graves mainly appears in some AHadith ascribed to the Holy Prophet (sws). It needs to be appreciated that these traditions do not add to the beliefs.

I would like you to appreciate that in this context…
Can non-Muslims especially the People of the Book enter Paradise? It is believed that it exclusive right of the Muslims to enter God’s Paradise.
We believe that God Almighty has sent human beings in this world to test who among them is good in deed. (al-Mulk 67:1) God has made sure that some of the fundamental religious realities are clear to man. For example he implanted in the human nature the awareness of good and evil. He created in them the awareness that there is a God who created this universe. He is just and merciful. The belief in…
My concern is what will be criteria to ask question to the people of different mental level. For example villagers compared to highly qualified ones. I have noticed that many people in villages and especially women in villages are involved in polytheism and mostly they are just following the traditional acts of their parents and/or husbands. They even don't have basic concept of Islam. Going to visit saints, graves and much more. So how will be those people treated?
We believe that God Almighty is the Most Merciful and He will consider the circumstances while deciding upon the fate of a person in the Afterlife. The Almighty is completely just and He will surely consider the circumstances one lives in. The basic thing that will be considered is the question how steadfastly one pursued the truth. Lets us consider a worse case. A follower of Christianity is required to consider the veracity of the…
