Shia View She was injured when defending her husband Imam Ali --peace be upon him-- at the time that Abu Bakr and Umar were trying to force Imam to give the pledge of allegiance to Abu Bakr, and she was later martyred from that injury that also immediately killed the embryo in her womb: وَ قَدْ كَانَ قُنْفُذٌ ... ضَرَبَ فَاطِمَةَ ع بِالسَّوْطِ حِينَ ...

When people die, they stay between this life and afterlife. It's called Barzakh. Al-Barzakh is generally viewed as the barrier between the physical and spiritual worlds, in which the soul awaits after death and before resurrection on Qiyamah (Judgement Day). At the state of Barzakh, people get questioned, showed what they did in their life and ...

No it's not allowed to pray for death on themselves, even though we will all die one day. The Prophet said = "None of you should wish for death because of a calamity befalling him; but if he has to wish for death, he should say: 'Allahumma ahini ma kanatil-hayatu khairantli wa tawaffani idha kanatil-wafatu khairanli - O Allah! Keep me alive as long ...

It should be noted, that the hadith in your question is not Authentic, it is false. Ka'b never predicted that Umar would die in three days, furthermore the description of Umar and when he would die is not in the Tauraat.

To answer this question we should first know what the definition of being alive and animate is. As you can e.g. read here, scientifically, the properties of life are counted as being capable of response to stimuli, reproduction, growth and development, and maintenance of homeostasis as a stable whole, although no unique definition is also accepted by all the ...

When someone dies, if they are destined for hell, do they stay there for all eternity? The disbelievers will stay in hell forever, and they will be punished however much God wills. or will they eventually be freed from hell? But, those people who have the smallest amount, like an atom or a small mustard seed, of faith/belief, then they will be let out ...

Abandoning Jihad does not delay your death from appointed time nor does participating in it hasten your death. Allah says in Qur'an: وَلِيَعْلَمَ الَّذِينَ نَافَقُوا وَقِيلَ لَهُمْ تَعَالَوْا قَاتِلُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّـهِ أَوِ ادْفَعُوا قَالُوا لَوْ نَعْلَمُ قِتَالًا لَّاتَّبَعْنَاكُمْ هُمْ لِلْكُفْرِ‌ يَوْمَئِذٍ أَقْرَ‌بُ مِنْهُمْ لِلْإِيمَانِ ...

Salam. Yeah it is a good question. Since you have asked it, I am pondering and searching about its answer. I could not get much references from Quran and Hadith but there is one Hadith in Sahih Bukhari as: Bukhari :: Book 9 :: Volume 93 :: Hadith 597 Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "A man who never did any good deed, said that if he ...

To feel grief when someone has died is totally normal and so it is not a sin to feel sad. However there are things which are haram such as mourning out loud, hitting yourself, ripping your clothes and asking "why?" because then you are questioning Allah's will. Prophet Muhammad, Peace be upon him, who said: «It is prohibited for a woman who believes in ...

The hadith is in Sahih Muslim: Once the Prophet, while passing through one of the graveyards of Medina or Mecca heard the voices of two persons who were being tortured in their graves. The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "These two persons are being tortured not for a major sin (to avoid)." The Prophet (ﷺ) then added, "Yes! (they are being tortured for a major ...

Preservation of life is perhaps the most crucial objective of the Shari`ah. If one were to organize the aims of Islam and shari`ah into a pyramid, this would be sitting at the top. Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land - it is as if he had slain mankind ...

These verses of Surat At-Takwir are said to be about the Day of Judgement: إِذَا الشَّمْسُ كُوِّرَتْ When the sun is wrapped up [in darkness] وَإِذَا النُّجُومُ انكَدَرَتْ And when the stars fall, dispersing, وَإِذَا الْجِبَالُ سُيِّرَتْ And when the mountains are removed وَإِذَا الْعِشَارُ عُطِّلَتْ And when full-term ...

Surely it's not suicide. In Islam our intention and our tries are what we decide and the result is decided by Allah. So if you intend to dive and die it counts as suicide, but if you know the risk and dive for fun and adventure then it is not. Everything has a risk but the percentage is just different; in an air plane you have safety in 99% of flights; in ...

Accepting Islam is the single most important criterion that defines how any other deeds beyond that will be perceived. Allah informs us in the Qur'an that there is only one religion, which is Islam, and that anyone who does not follow Islam (even if it is not to follow anything at all) will be among the losers on the Day of Judgment: وَمَن يَبْتَغِ غَيْرَ ...

There is no clear evidence as to whether the dead can hear or see those who are alive or not. There is evidence that certain incidents took place, or still take place, where the dead can hear those who are alive, but the opinion is that such incidents are either specific to the Prophet ﷺ or specific to a time or place. The Qur'an compares the disbelievers ...

Yes, it is. The evidence cited for it includes: The Prophet ﷺ approved of the act of Bara’ bin Ma’rur: أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم حين قدم المدينة سأل عن البراء بن معرور، فقالوا: توفي وأوصى بثلثه لك يا رسول الله، وأوصى أن يوجه إلى القبلة لما احتضر، فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: أصاب الفطرة وقد رددت ثلثه على ولده When the Messenger of Allah ﷺ ...

First let me comment that the dying instant is not really an instant of time, it MAY be felt as a very long period of time by the person being dying, but not always as it depends on the person being dying. In this period of time many things may happen among them being punishments (not talking about after death, but death itself). Then we have some pre-death ...

Allah Almighty says: And there is no creature on [or within] the earth or bird that flies with its wings except [that they are] communities like you. We have not neglected in the Register a thing. Then unto their Lord they will be gathered. (Surah Al-An'aam 6:38) The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said, The claimants would get ...

This life is a test and the test is not over till death. So anything you do till you death, (and three thing after that) goes in your "book of deeds" for which you are accountable. The other thing to note is that not all sins are equal. It a great blessing of God that if we keep away from major sins, He will wash away our minor ones. Thus a major sin done ...

Can women perform salat al janaza Female can perform salat al-janaza as it's narrated in Sahih Muslim. So it's no bida'h at all if a woman performs this prayer, but a major condition for this is the presence of the corpse of the death person for whom this prayer is performed! Can women participate at the prayer (in a mosque) Most scholars say as the rules ...

Yes why not, Doesn't your dua's for their well being or asking Allah for sending them to jannah will not be listen. Or you need any reference for that. Okay here are few references for your question. The Holy Qur'an has stressed upon Muslims to pray for the welfare of other Muslims as brothers and well wishers in the Islamic fraternity; funeral prayer of ...

Salam. I think by spirit you mean soul. If yes, then you are right. When one sleeps, Allah takes his soul and may or not may not return it to his body. As Allah states in Quran: (39:42) Translation: (Sahih International) Allah takes the souls at the time of their death, and those that do not die [He takes] during their sleep. Then He keeps those ...

Great question.. The ruling for the deceased who died in a dry area is to perform Tayammum on him, since Tayammum replaces the functionality of water (performing ablution or ghusl al-janabah) when it is not available. Here are the two verses that talked about Tayammum in Surat An-Nisaa and Surat Al-Ma'idah You can also check this answer regarding your ...

The simple answer is No, it is not Kufr Hiding the sin Exposing the sin makes it worse, because it consists of two sins, the initial sin in addition to exposing it, Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "Every one of my followers will be forgiven except those who expose (openly) their wrongdoings. An ...

There is a hadith in Sahih Muslim wherein 'Amr bin Al-'As says to his son: When you bury me, fill my grave well with earth, then stand around it for the time within which a camel is slaughtered and its meat is distributed so that I may enjoy your intimacy and (in your company) ascertain what answer I can give to the messengers (angels) of Allah. However, ...

According to hadith, you will be questioned by two angels in three regards: who you worshipped, who Muhammad is, and what religion you followed. Depending on your answers, your wait in the grave - which lasts until judgement day - is made easy, or torturous. For details, there are many collections of relevant ahadith online, for example here.

Anas was a young man when the Messenger of Allah passed away and a child of ten years when Muhammad came to Medina, so he couldn't have exactly witnessed how long the Prophet lived in Mekka, but he heard it from others, so here I wouldn't give much for the amount quoted in his hadith this means you can clearly delete or forget about all the quotes about 60 ...
