Questions abound about what happens after death. In Western societies, in particular, there is a great deal of speculation on these matters. Muslims, however, have answers to these questions. Islam tells us what we can expect when we have finally make our exit from this world ; we are also given ample guidance as to how we may best prepare ourselves and earn the rewards of Paradise in the Hereafter .
In this book, Husayn al-‘Awayishah outlines the Islamic teaching on death and the grave . It is an essential reading for any Muslim who wants to know more about this topic from the authentic sources of Islam
Praise be to Allah: we praise Him and seek His help and forgiveness. We seek refuge with Him from the evils of our own souls and deeds. Whomever Allah guides, no-one can lead astray, and whomever He leaves astray, no-one can guide. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah Alone Who has no partner, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His Slave and Messenger. As a continuation of the Bidayat al-Salikin series, Allah has enabled me to produce this book, The Grave-Punishment and Blessings. I believe that it was necessary to present this information to my Muslim brothers, because the punishments and blessings of the grave are topics which have to do with 'Aqidah, topics which we must know about.
