Assalaamu Alaikum. My 10 yrs old son died of cancer last week. When he was born and the years he was growing up I hadnt the means to do his aqeeqah. Is it permissible to do it now? And should all the meat be shared to the poor as when you are doing sacrifice for a deceased?
Respected Scholar:Is it true that when a person passed away his deceased relatives are waiting to welcome him and to introduce to the other relatives who he never met and also they ask him about the living relatives as how they are and how they are doing ? if it is true please expalin with reference to any hadith or Quran, ThanksRegareds
Is it right to read Quran and ask for forgiveness from Allah for the person who is dead?
When a person passes away in our country his bereaved family prepares food and gives to neighbors. Does this an act go in conformity with the Prophet's Sunnah? Are there any reservations against eating the food prepared by the bereaved family on such an occasion?
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. My father passed away last year and while we were at the grave at the time of the burial, my auntie said to look at the sky. She told us that everything was still. The clouds didn't seem to be moving. Even though they move at a slow pace, I kept staring and—maybe it was in my head— but it seemed that everything was at a standstill. What is the meaning behind this, and is this even true or was it my imagination? I look forward to your reply and thank you for taking the time to read and respond. May Allah Most High bless you all for educating and helping your fellow Muslims along the right path.
What is the ruling if it happens that a baby suckles from a dead woman? Does he become prohibited to marry any of those closely related to that woman (like her daughter, sisters, and so on) for being the woman’s foster child?
Respected Sheikh, As-Salamu `alaykum. I am a new convert to Islam and have a question about a certain practice I have observed regarding death. Female family members and friends get together and recite surat Yasin and pray other various prayers together. They keep praying and counting until they reach their target, then they eat (sometimes). I have heard that this is an innovation and not a proper practice. Please advise me with reference to hadith.
Is it permissible for Muslims to recite the Glorious Qur'an in a group, either in a mosque or at someone’s house, on behalf of the deceased M uslim? What about reciting Surat Yaseen in a group after the Juma`ah prayer in the mosque: is it permissible or not?
Resspected Schoar: Assalamu Alaikum, 1.If a person like to send reward for deceased but does not know how to read Quran can he recite the Quran along with audio cassettes and make a dua for the reward for all the marhooms including deceased, will the deceased get reward ? 2.After the soul of pious Muslim is removed from the body and placed in ILLIYYUM, do the soul has any connection with this world can the soul see what is happening with his relatives and also do the soul see what is going on in soul's new world? 3.I heard that when a person dies his ancestors are lining up to greet him and upon his arrival he is introduced to all the deceased relatives and also questions are being asked about the living relatives ? and from there where do all go ? 4. In a situation where deceased had wished to built a Mosque and have laid down the foundation stone to start few days before his death in Pakistan, later the widow has decided to keep the land for busisness do the deceased get any reward for this intention and if the siblings of the deceased wants to donate funds/donation on deceased behalf to a Darul Uloom in the area does he will get the same reward like a Mosque ? 5.The deceased who was my younger brother came to one of my borhter's dream and my brother asked him you left us very soon and suddenly he replied it was not my decision the second question my brother asked him how evcerything went for you his answer was everything went fine and very easily and then he said now he is going even farther away and my brother said he looks kind of happy and satisfied, again he met him in dream and he said he is happy and in the world you do not know how much problems, stress and worries I had and recently my cousin went for Hajj and she met him in her dream as he was also doing hajj with them wearing white Hajj cloths, please comment on this with detail does dream have any link to this world or they are mere dreams ? 6.My brother passed away in Pakistan this year a week before Ramadhan and his intention was for Aitikaff for 10-20 days and also his plan was to go with Tableegh Jamaat for 10 days does he gets reward for his intentions ? 7.What is the best we can do to send reward to him is it charity or reading Quran and making Duaas for him ? Please try to answer these question for me as they will give me great satisfaction because I am very depressed and sad al the time and there is not a single moment of my life when I can not think about him, please help me, I live in a remote small town and have no access to any Scholar, I understand your time is very precious but your answer will give me great satisfaction and May Allah Reward you for this kindness. Wasalaam
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. I am a Sunni follower of the Islamic faith. I’m not a Sufi and I want to ask whether reading Surat Yaseen benefits a dead person? Jazakum Allah khayran.
As-Salamu `Alaykum. If a person dies in an accident and he has deliberately missed mandatory Prayers before his death, can his parents do anything for him, for instance, give charity or pray on his behalf? Is there any other way the deceased can be saved from the probable Hell-fire in the grave? Jazakum Allah Khayran.
Can I offer udhiyah (sacrifice) on behalf of my deceased parents?
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. I read in some books a hadith to the effect that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, "The deceased will be tortured (in his grave) because of his relatives' crying over him." In fact, I doubted the authenticity of that hadith, for there is an established principle in the Qur'an that no one will be accounted for others' sins. Allah Almighty says: "No soul earns (evil) but against itself, and no bearer of burden shall bear the burden of another" (Al-An`am: 164). Does this verse not contradict the hadith referred to? Is that hadith authentic or not? If it is authentic, what does it mean exactly, and how can we reconcile between it and the Qur'anic verse quoted above? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Can one perform Hajj on behalf of the deceased relatives (for example parents) who did not follow the commands of Allah such as Salat and Fasting during their life? But they were kind parents and gave much charity but neglected their religion and did not pay proper Zakah. At the time of death, they had not mended their ways even though they had examples all around them of good Islamic practices and behavior. What does one do in that case?
As-salamu `alaykum. Can a woman go to Hajj on behalf of a deceased man? Or, more precisely, can my female cousin, who already went to Hajj many times, go to Hajj on behalf of my deceased father? My father is her uncle from her father's side. She was doing `Umrah when my father passed away. She even did `Umrah for him before he was laid to rest. Please let me know. Thanks.
