Book Name:Madani Wasiyat Nama

If only I am blessed with martyrdom under the shade of the Green Dome and the Minarets in Madīna-tul-Munawwaraĥ whilst beholding the most Revered and Renowned Prophet    صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰى عَـلَيْـهِ وَاٰلـِهٖ وَسَـلَّم. And, if only I am blessed with burial in  Jannat-tul-Baqī’. Otherwise, alas, wherever I am predestined to be…

1.       If I am found taking my last breaths, perform all rites in accordance with Sunnaĥ. Turn my face towards the Holy Qiblaĥ and read out Sūraĥ Yāsīn to me. Continue to recite the Kalimaĥ ayyibaĥ aloud till my departing soul comes to my chest.

2.       After my soul leaves my body, perform all rites according to Sunnaĥ e.g. hastening in shrouding and burial; because delaying these things in order to gather a large number of people is not Sunnaĥ. The rulings described in Part-IV of the book Baĥār-e-Sharī’at should be acted upon.

3.       The size of the grave should be in conformity with Sunnaĥ. Make a Laad as it is Sunnaĥ[1].


[1] There are 2 types of graves: (1) Coffin type (2) Laad. To make a Laad, a grave is dug first and then, within the dug grave, the ground is further dug towards the Qiblaĥ for placing the deceased person in it. Making Laad is a Sunnaĥ. If the ground is suitable, then do make the Laad, but if the ground is soft then, there is no harm in preparing the coffin type grave. The gravedigger may suggest that   the slab be laid in a slanting position in the interior side but you should not listen to him.
