Book Name:Shaitan kay baaz hathyar
[Shar’ī ruling: To eat the meal served on Sawyam (the 3rd day of the demise) is not permissible for the people who are Ghanī (i.e. those who are not Faqīr as per Shar’ī definition of Faqīr)]. Only a Faqīr can eat it. It is better and safer for the Ghanī people not to eat ‘the funeral meal’ even after the 3rd day of the demise.
Observe the preset timing and duration of the Ijtimā’. Instead of announcing that the Ijtimā’ would start after Ṣalāt-ul-‘Ishā, announce the time according to the clock. For example, if the preset time is 9 p.m., start the Ijtimā’ exactly at that time with the recitation of the Holy Quran, followed by a Na’at (duration 25 minutes) without waiting for people to come. A Sunnaĥ-Inspiring speech (duration 40 minutes), Żikr of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ (duration 5 minutes), a heart-rending Du’ā (duration 12 minutes) and in the end Ṣalāt-o-Salām (three couplets only) with the concluding Du’ā (duration 3 minutes) should all be conducted within the stipulated duration.
Make sure that all the responsible Islamic brothers of the area, Muballighīn and other Islamic brothers including the members of Shūrā, if possible, attend this Ijtimā’. Try to persuade the Islamic brothers to travel with a Madanī Qāfilaĥ after the Ijtimā’, for the Īṣāl-e-Šawāb of the deceased.
