Grave Questions, Dr Emdad Khan
Last few days and weeks we see many of our near ones or friends are leaving us to meet Allah swt.
We feel sad, family feels sad, but it is reality of this life.
We all go one day, as we are born, we all must taste death and will meet Allah swt and account all the things we did in life.
We as Muslims know the 3 questions we will be asked and the answer of those 3 questions. Now let us imagine, for the first time in a lonely dark grave, two angels are coming to ask those questions, are you able to imagine and ready to answer those questions?
It may happen any day, any time we are ready or not. So as wise and intelligent people let us get ready as it may happen any day any time.
Let us find what Allah swt says in the Quran surah Ibrahim for us
[08-09, 9:59 a.m.] Dr. Emdad Khan: Surah Ebrahim A14.27
يُثَبِّتُ ٱللَّهُ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ بِٱلْقَوْلِ ٱلثَّابِتِ فِى ٱلْحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنْيَا وَفِى ٱلْـَٔاخِرَةِ ۖ وَيُضِلُّ ٱللَّهُ ٱلظَّـٰلِمِينَ ۚ وَيَفْعَلُ ٱللَّهُ مَا يَشَآءُ ٢٧
Allah makes the believers steadfast with the firm Word ˹of faith˺ in this worldly life and the Hereafter. And Allah leaves the wrongdoers to stray. For Allah does what He wills.
Scholars explained if we are firm and steadfast in obeying commands of Allah swt in this life, on the grave on first day, he will make us firm and steadfast to answer those 3 questions
Insha’Allah our grave will be a piece of Jannah it will have Noor or light and we will be excused from the torment of grave.
We request everyone one of us to think of our death and grave at least one time before going to bed.
May Allah swt make UT easy for us to prepare for the 3 questions of grave and we will be able to answer Insha’Allah. Ameen.
