Baqi Graveyard
Baqi Graveyard
That thing which is inevitable in everyone’s life is death: Every soul will taste death… (Quran 21:35)



The purpose of living this temporary life and then facing death: ‘Glorious is the One in whose hand is the Kingdom (of the whole universe) , and He is powerful over every thing, The One who created death and life, so that He may test you as to which of you is better in his deeds. And He is the All-Mighty, the Most- Forgiving.’ (Quran 67:1-2)



‘The smart person is the one who takes control of their self and acts for what which comes after death...’ (Tirmidhi) ‘Remember frequently the thing that cuts off pleasures ,’ i.e. death.’ (Tirmidhi) ‘The hearts become rusty just as iron does when water affects it.’ On being asked what could clean them the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam replied, ‘A great amount of remembrance of death, and the recitation of the Quran.’ (Tirmidhi)



The pain at the time of death, when the soul is separated from the body, is extremely severe. But for a believer, death’s agony turns into joy when he realises that he is to meet Allah and that Paradise awaits: ‘Whoever loves to meet Allah, Allah (too) Loves to meet him; and whoever hates to meet Allah, Allah (too) Hates to meet him!" Aisha radhiallahu anha said to the Prophet sallallahu alaihi was sallam: ‘But we (all) dislike death!’ He replied: ‘It is not like this, but it is meant that when the time of the death of a believer approaches, he receives the good news of Allah's Pleasure and His Blessings upon him, and so at that time nothing is dearer to him than what is in front of him (the meeting with His Lord). He therefore loves the meeting with Allah, and Allah (too) Loves the meeting with him…’ (Bukhari)



Among the things we can do to secure a better life after death is: 1. Reading the Quran which will comfort us after death, in the grave and beyond. (Tirmidhi) 2. Charity from which people continue to benefit. 3. Knowledge we taught others about Islam from which they benefit. 4. Kids who pray for us. (Muslim)
