Maut ki Holnakiyan

Book Name:Maut ki Holnakiyan

Sayyiduna Ibn ‘Abbas رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ has narrated: Whoever offers two Rak’aat Salah after Maghrib on a Friday and recites ‘اِذَا زُلۡزِلَت’ (Surah Az-Zilzaal) fifteen times in every Rak’at after Surah Al-Fatihah, Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ will reduce the severity of death (Sakraat-e-Maut) upon him; will save him from the torment of the grave and will enable him to remain steadfast on the bridge of Sirat. (Sharh-us-Sudoor, pp. 186)

Dear Islamic brothers! When a deceased person is buried into the grave, the grave squeezes the dead body; whether the deceased is a true Muslim, or an disbeliever, a righteous person or an evil person, a child or a young man, nobody can escape from this squeezing of the grave. The only difference is that a disbeliever is forcefully squeezed and his ribs pierce and interlock each other, but a true Muslim is squeezed as a mother lovingly presses her child; Without comparison, as a cat presses her kitten or a mouse in her mouth, both cases are different.

13. Benefit of reciting Surah Al-Ikhlas

The Prophet of Rahmah, the Intercessor of the Ummah صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said, ‘One who recites Surah Al-Ikhlas during a fatal illness, he will be safe from the trial and affliction and squeezing of the grave.’

14. Invocation (Wird) for the night preceding Friday

اَللّٰھُمَّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ وَبَارِكْ عَلٰی سَیِّدِنَا  مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِیِّ الْاُمِّیِّ الْحَبِیْبِ الْعَالِی الْقَدْرِ الْعَظِیْمِ الْجَاہِ   وَ عَلٰی  اٰلِہٖ  وَ صَحْبِہٖ  وَ سَلِّمْ

The saints of Islam have quoted that whoever recites this Salat-‘Alan-Nabi at least once on the night preceding Friday [the night between Thursday and Friday] on a regular basis will be blessed with the vision of the Beloved and Blessed Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم at the time of death, as well as at the time
