Muslim, Christian, Jew, idol-worshipper or atheist — every single person is united in the belief that death is inevitable. Death itself is not an end. Rather, it is a bridge to the next life, the eternal life of the Hereafter. The life of the Hereafter is simply a matter of either heaven or hell. Every person will eventually find his permanent abode in either one of these places. The question is: Who will gain salvation by means of his entry to Jannah (paradise) and who will be doomed to Allah Ta’ala’s wrath and punishment?

Mutual Consultation

Often a person has to make a decision pertaining to some aspect or the other. The more serious the matter, the more difficult it becomes to make the decision. According to the advice of the Qur’an and Hadith, such important decisions should never be made without prior consultation. Allah Ta’ala declares in the Glorious Qur’an regarding the Believers: “And their matters are (decided) in mutual consultation” [Surah Shura:38]. Even Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) was commanded by Allah Ta’ala to consult the Sahaba (radhiallahu anhum) in such matters of importance wherein no divine instruction had been given.

O lover of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)! Most certainly the concerns of your beloved concern you greatly. Without any doubt what he loved, you also love and what he despised and disliked, you too hate those aspects. This is obviously your condition, since you are a true lover of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). Every true and sincere lover of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) has such intense love for his beloved that, as a poet says: “Even if I wash my mouth with musk,  it will still not be worthy  enough to fulfil the right of mentioning the beloved and esteemed name of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam).” Every person is disturbed by bad odours. The stench of sin from the mouth, eyes,  ears and all the other limbs are greatly disturbing to Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). Hence his true lovers will refrain from all sins so that they do not cause any disturbance to their beloved.  Therefore, O true lover of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), consider the following Ahadith of our beloved and noble Master: (sallallahu alaihi wasallam):

* “I have been sent to destroy musical instruments” (Nailul Awtaar).

The laws of INHERITANCE are directly from the Qur’an, with a few finer details found in the Hadith as well. Therefore one must totally submit to the law of Allah Ta’ala and His beloved Rasul (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). Allah Ta’ala says: “It does not behove of a Believing man or woman that when Allah and His Rasul decree a matter that they should have any choice in that matter. And he who disobeys Allah and His Rasul has deviated a clear deviation.”
