When Death arrives workshop ...Notes PArt 2 ( Condolences,What benefits the deceased,visiting graves)
Assalam alai kum sisters ,
Alhamdulillah was fortunate enough to attend a workshop on " When Death arrives " by an amazing speaker Sr. Rashida Petersen at MArkaz al Huda,Twar.,Dubai. It was a 3 day workshop and discussed about Arrival of Death,Iddah,Condolences,what benefits the deceased,burial in Islam. On the 3rd day we had a live demo of washing and shrouding the body as well as Salatul Janazah. The first thing which Sr. RAshida said in the demo was," Look sisters,this is your final costume...No designer wear,expensive clothes just 2 pieces of white cloth." This session moved me to tears. Also it was very informative ..just cleared so many misconceptions about Funeral rites especially washing of the body. In gulf countries Alhamdulillah the washing of the dead body,shrouding,salatul janazah are all done by experts who are aware of Sunnah way. But in other countries especially for woman it is done by a close relative who is most of the times not aware of Sunnah procedures related to it. I have ulpoaded the notes related to it on this link. Do visit and download it,READ it,SHARE it . Its very beneficial and informative Alhamdulillah. MAy Allah help us to implement these Sunnah practices in our funeral and O RAbb guide our progeny and relatives so that our final ghusl,shrouding,burial be done the Sunnah way too and protect us from punishment of grave. Aameen Ya Rabb.
