N A M A Z – E – W A H S H A T
(PRAYERS TO BE OFFERED FOR THE DEPARTED SOUL ON THE NIGHT OF BURIAL)

It is MOST Important to Give Sadaqa on behalf of the deceased ON the FIRST Night of Burial .This has MANY beneifts & can only be achieved by giving sadqa on the first night when it is MOST needed by the deceased .

Sayyid Ibne Tawus has narrated from the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.a.) that the most difficult for the dead person is the first night in the grave, so have pity on your dead ones and give Sadaqah on their behalf so that their difficulty is reduced and if there is nothing to give in Sadaqah you must pray two rakats prayer.
Namaz Wahshat can be recited as under

645. It is befitting that on the first night after the burial of a dead person, two Raka’ats of wahshat prayers be offered for it. The method of offering this prayers is as follows:
In the first Raka’at, after reciting Surah al-Hamd, Ayatul Kursi should be recited once and in the second Raka’at, Surah al-Qadr should be recited 10 times after Surah-al-Hamd;

and after saying the Salam the following supplication should be recited: Alla humma salli ‘ala Muhammadin wa Ali Muhammad wab’ath thawabaha ila qabri ……(here the name of the dead person and his father’s name should be mentioned).

646. Wahshat prayers can be offered in the night following the burial of the dead body at any time, but it is better to offer it in the early hours of the night after ‘Isha prayers.

647. If it is proposed to transfer the dead body to some other town or its burial is delayed owing to some reason, the wahshat prayers should be deferred till the first night of its burial.

Mullah Fateh Ali Sultaan Abadi relates that whenever he used to hear about the death of anybody, he would pray Salaatul Wahsha; the prayer recommended to be prayed for the deceased, and ask Allah to protect him especially in the first night in the grave from loneliness.

Well a certain man died and the Mullah prayed for him as was his custom. The Mullah met a friend of his who told him that he had seen the dead man in his dream, and was told that his condition had been miserable but when the Mullah prayed for him the torture was removed.

The dead man prayed for the Mullah for showing such consideration and kindness to him. (DAR UL SALAAM VOL 2 PAGE 315)

Another Prayer
In the first rakat after Surah Hamd recite Surah Tawheed twice and in the second rakat after Surah Hamd recite Surah Takathur 10 times and after the Salaam say:  Allaahumma sale A’laa Muhammadinw wa aale muhammadin wab atha thawaabaha ilaa qabre dhaalikal mayyite f….alaan ibne falaan

Thus the Almighty this very moment would send thousands of angels to the grave with heavenly garments and they turn the narrowness of the grave into vastness till the time the bugle would be blown and would make the good deeds of the worshipper shine like the sun and elevate him 40 grades.

Fazilat/Merits  of Namaz-e-Wahshat

Shaykh Thiqatul Islam Noori has narrated directly from Fath Ali Sultanabadi that he says he had the habit that whenever he heard of the death of a family member or a friend he would pray two rakats prayer of the night of burial and gift the Sawab. “No one knew about this practice of mine. One day I met a friend. He said: Last night I had a dream in which I saw a person who had died that day. I asked him about his well being and inquired about the conditions after death. He said that after my death I was in a terrible difficulty because my deeds were very bad. Till the time this person recited two rakat prayer. And he mentioned your name. This two rakat Namaz saved me from the punishment. May Allah have mercy on the parents of this person who did this favour to me.

It is narrated from Imam Sadiq (a.s.) that whenever there is narrowness and severity on the dead body the Almighty widens his grave and removes the narrowness and says that this widening is because you had recited Namaz-e-Wahshat for such and such believer brother.

Marhum Haaj Mulla said: At this time the person asked me what that prayer was? I explained to him the method of this prayer and those things that are beneficial to the dead ones. They are as follows:

  1. In order to be safe from the Wahshat-e-Qabr (terror of the grave) one should perform the ruku properly. Thus it is related from Imam Baqir (a.s.) that one who performs the ruku properly does not have terror in the grave.
  2. Recite “Laa ilaaha illallaahul Malikul haqqul Mubeen” a hundred times daily. One who recites this is safe from poverty and terror of the grave and affluence pulls him towards itself and the doors of Paradise open up for him.
  3. Recite Surah Yasin before going to bed.
  4. Recite Namaz-e-Lailatul Raghaib which is mentioned in the A’maal of Rajab on the eve of the first Friday of the month of Rajab.

It is narrated from Imam Sadiq (a.s.) that whenever there is narrowness and severity on the dead body the Almighty widens his grave and removes the narrowness and says that this widening is because you had recited Namaz-e-Wahshat for such and such believer brother.

Junaid Baghdadi and Behlool Dana – The Wise Fool Of Baghdad

July 7th, 2017, posted in ChARACtERs, MESSAGEs, POEPLes, Scarface'S DIARY, STORiES, Sufism

Behlool simulated madness, though he was not mad. Junaid Baghdadi a scholar and Sufi of repute, knew him very well. One day as they met, Junaid Baghdadi requested him to give him some counsel and admonition.

You do not need any advice. You are a well known scholar,” Behlool said.

But Junaid Baghdadi insisted. Behlool gave in and said: “Well, I shall ask you three questions. If you answer them correctly, you will be advised.

And then he proceeded to ask: “Do you know how to talk?” “Do you know how to eat?” “Do you know how to sleep?

Junaid Baghdadi found these simple. He said: “I know how to talk. I talk with a low voice, politely and to the point, so that the listeners are not at all offended. I eat after having washed my hands, say Bismillah before I commence, and chew the food properly. When I finish, I thank Allah (SWT). Before I go to sleep, I do my Wudu (Ablution) and retire to a clean bed. Then I bear witness to my faith and sleep.

Behlool stood up and started walking away. He said: “I thought you were quite learned. You do not know the most elementary things of Islam.” But Junaid Baghdadi would not let him go. “Please guide me,” he enjoined.

Well,Behlool said, “It is no use talking softly if it is a lie, remembering Allah (SWT) before eating has no meaning if the food you eat is forbidden or usurped or that the food has been bought from the money of an orphan, a widow or a fellowman. And what is the use of sleeping with Wudu (Ablution) and all the recitations if your heart is full of malice, jealousy and enmity towards your brother in faith? He who sleeps with a clean heart sleeps a religious man. Do you understand? These are the principles. The rest are all secondary virtues.

Bohlool and Serious Advice

It is said that Bohlool mostly spent his time sitting in a graveyard. One day, as usual, he went there. Abbasid Caliph Haroon Al-Rashid passed by, desiring to hunt. When he arrived near Bohlool he asked, “Bohlool, what are you doing?

I have come to visit such people who don’t backbite, don’t expect anything from me and don’t cause me pain in any way.

Will you tell me something about Qiyamah (The day of Resurrection), Sirat (Bridge), and the questions and answers about this world?

Tell your slaves to kindle a fire and place a flat iron pan over it till it becomes red-hot.”
Abbasid Caliph Haroon Al-Rashid ordered it and it was done.

O Abbasid Caliph Haroon Al-Rashid !! I will stand barefoot on this pan and introduce myself. I will describe whatever I have eaten and worn. After that, you also stand barefoot like I did, introduce yourself, and describe whatever you have eaten and worn.

Abbasid Caliph Haroon Al-Rashid agreed.

Then Bohlool stood on the hot pan and quickly said, “Bohlool, a bundle (of tattered clothes), barley bread and vinegar.” He said this and immediately came off; his feet were not burned at all. When Abbasid Caliph Haroon Al-Rashid‘s turn came, he couldn’t introduce himself the way he wanted to, his feet got burned, and he fell off.

O Abbasid Caliph Harun Al-Rashid !! Qiyamat’s questions and answers are like this. Those who worship Allah (SWT), are content, and stay away from greediness of the world’s rank and dignity will easily pass Sirat (Bridge), but those who are attached to worldly majesty and splendor will be arrested with troubles.
