of his burial into the grave, to the extent that he will see the Noble Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم lowering him into the grave with his own merciful hands. (Afzal-us-Salawat ‘ala Sayyid-is-Sadat, pp. 151)

15. Consoler of the grave

After shouldering a bier, Sayyiduna Ibraheem Bin Adham عَـلَيْـهِ رَحْـمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ الۡاَکۡرَم said: May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ bless me in my death. Then a hidden voice said, ‘And also after death.’ Upon hearing this, I became afraid. When people had buried him, I sat beside the grave and started pondering over matters of the Hereafter. All of a sudden, a very handsome man came out of the grave, wearing neat and clean clothes which was giving off a fragrant smell. He said to me, ‘O Ibrahim!’ I said, ‘Labbayk’, then I asked him, ‘May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ have mercy on you! Who are you?’ He replied, ‘I am the one who said, ‘And also after death’ from the Takht. I asked his name. He replied that his name was Sunnah and he was sympathetic to human beings in the world and is Nūr (light), a friend and consoler in the grave and a leader and guide to paradise on the Day of Judgement. (Sharh-us-Sudoor, pp. 204)

16. Nūr of Tahajjud

The Beloved and Blessed Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم once said to Sayyiduna Abu Zar Ghifaari رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ: How much of preparation do you make when setting out for a journey! What would be the preparation for the Day of Judgement! O Abu Zar (رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ)! Should I not inform you about the thing that benefits you on the Day of Judgement? Sayyiduna Abu Zar Ghifaari رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ humbly said: May my parents be sacrificed for you, please tell me. So the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said: In the extreme heat of summer, observe fast, for the Day of Judgement and offer two Rak’aat Salah in the darkness of the night so that there could be light in the grave.

18. Call to righteousness

Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ once sent a revelation to Sayyiduna Musa عَـلٰى نَبِـيِّنَا وَعَـلَيْهِ الصَّلٰوةُ وَالسَّلَام: Learn good things yourself and also teach them to others. I will brighten the graves
