Chapter 161

Supplication for the Deceased after Burial






Hadith 946


Abu `Amr (also called Abu `Abdullah and also Abu Laila) from `Uthman bin `Affan radiyallahu anhu   reported: After the burial of a dead man, the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa would stand by the grave and say,

"Ask Allah to forgive your brother and supplicate for him for steadfastness because he is being questioned (about his deeds) now.'' [Abu Dawud].


Commentary: We are told in this Hadith that two angels question man in the grave. Allah helps a true believer in answering correctly. He says to the angels, "Allah is my Rabb. Islam is my religion. And the man sent by Allah as His Prophet is Muhammad. :Saws:  '' A condemned person will say, "Aa, Aa, I do not know.'' We are, therefore, particularly instructed that after the burial of a fellow-Muslim, we should supplicate beside his grave for his being firm-footed against the ordeal to which he will be subjected.

Hadith 947


Amr bin Al-`as radiyallahu anhu used to say: "When you have buried me, keep standing near my grave till (for the time it takes to) a camel is slaughtered and its meat is distributed, so that I may feel your nearness and know what to reply to the angels sent by my Rabb.'' [Muslim].


Commentary: As mentioned in the previous Hadith, the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa has instructed his followers that after a Muslim's burial, they should keep standing beside his grave for some time and pray for his firmness on facing the interrogating angels in the grave. `Amr bin Al-`As, too, made a will to this effect.

The reference made to Imam Ash- Shafi'i (Rahimahullah) about the recitation of the Qur'an beside a Muslim's grave is in disagreement with the Prophet's Sallalahu aleihi wa practice. What has come to us from the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa as his Sunnah in this respect is the act of supplicating, and it will be appropriate to confine to it. Aside from it, the reference made to Imam Ash-Shafi'i seems to be of doubtful authenticity. Because according to Fath Al-Bari, Tafsir Ibn Kathir and some other books, Imam Ash-Shafi'i rejected the view that the benefit of reciting the Qur'an could be transmitted to
the dead.
