Book Name:Shaitan kay baaz hathyar
Islamic brothers must not be ignored. Let it not be that the poor long for your sympathies, condolences, participation in Īṣāl-e-Šawāb ritual and ‘call to righteousness’ through individual effort but you take no note of this.
On the contrary, if a wealthy person has died and you rush to offer condolences to his family members in a very humble and flattering manner, make heaps of Īṣāl-e-Šawāb for their pleasure and arrange for the key responsible persons of Dawat-e-Islami to phone them and offer condolences, this is not a good attitude. Similarly, if you inquire unnecessarily whether they (i.e. the family members of the deceased) have phoned so-and-so VIP or responsible person of Dawat-e-Islami or not, this is also not appropriate. I hope that the wealthy may also be realizing what I mean. They should also ponder over the way they participate in the funeral of the father of their gatekeeper as well as the way they attend the funeral of the father of any political leader or a social reformer or a businessman that they have a relation with! Who is unaware of people’s interest in attending the funeral of a worldly personality and their carelessness in attending the funeral of a poor person!
The number of attendees in the funeral of a poor person is usually small even if he is a Ṣalāĥ-offerer and a virtuous person. This should not happen. The rich people should also have a sympathetic attitude towards their servants and gatekeepers.
