Call of grave according to the teaching of Islam
Call of grave:-
Your real home, ‘the grave’, calls upon you twice a day. It says; O the Child of Adam, I am the house of dreadfulness. I am place of loneliness. I am a dark cottage and full of dust and mist. There are snacks, scorpions and horrible insects inside me.
You used to walk proudly on my back. Remember! You will be tied in me. You walk on my back fearlessly but could not be able to even move when you will come inside me. You used to commit corruption and deeds which are not permissible. Remember! Inside me, the insects will eat you. You commit sins on my back, but will get damnation inside me. You used to laugh on my back but will cry inside me. You used to celebrate happy moments of your life carelessly on my back but will be sad inside me. You live arrogantly and conceitedly but will become dust inside me.
When the soul of a man is separated from his body, his body is buried in the gravel and where he is buried Muslims used to make a heap of soil as a mark of the deceased’s grave. This identity mark helps the relatives of the deceased to remember the departed soul and offer Dua and Fatiha to increase his rewards or to decrease the wrath of Almighty. His offspring and other relatives used to visit the grave and offer supplication and Fatiha for the deceased.
After death all the deeds of the deceased are cut off. This means that life is just like an examination hall and a candidate could earn the marks till the time is not lapsed. The difference is just that in the illustration of examination hall the candidates will know how much time they have to solve the question paper whereas in the case of life no one knows how much time he has and any moment would come when he will no more be counted as living person rather he will be a deceased and buried in the grave to face the consequence of his good or bad deeds.
Influence of reputation on the death:
When a man dies, his reputation is given great importance by the Almighty. If the general public dislikes and abhor about him, no matter how pious and religious he was, Almighty show His displeasure to him because the deceased could not make His creature happy. On the other hand, if general public praise the deceased, God also bestows his blessings on the said man irrespective of the fact how much sinner he was. He is pardoned by the Almighty.
