The three questions in the grave

We make so much preparation for our lives in this world. If there is a test, we are awake whole night trying to memorizing the answers. What about the three questions that will be asked in the grave? Do we know the answers – are we prepared for the grave? Life is not certain. Only certainty is Death, but we don’t know when it might take us.

The Messenger of Allah (sallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said, “Verily the grave is the first stopping place for the Hereafter; so if he is saved therein, then what comes after is easier than it. And if he is not saved therefrom, then that which comes after is harder.” [Hasan: At-Tirmidhee, Ibn Maajah, al-Haakim: from ‘Uthmaan.]

The three questions in grave asked by the angels Al-Munkar and Al-Nakeer

1. Who is your Lord?

2. Who is your prophet?

3. What is your Deen/Religion?

May Allah save us from the punishment of the grave. Ameen!

The six pillars of Iman

As muslims who surrender completely to Allah (SWT) the creator of the Heavens and the earth, we are required to believe in six things to complete our Iman:

1. Allah

a. Allah is maker of everything, owner/master of everything in this universe.

b. Worship is only for Allah. No one or nothing else is worthy of worship.

c. Names & Attributes of Allah

2. Angels

3. Books

The Taurah, The Gospel, The Quran etc

4. Messengers and Prophets

5. Last day or the Day of Judgement

6. Qadr(Divine Decree) – the Good and Bad of it.
