I lost my dear and loving father in late November. My mother and I wanted him to be buried in his home country overseas, but the people who were with us told us to bury him here. I really wish to know if we can take his body to his homeland overseas after his burial?:cry: It makes me so sad that if we were all to move from here, we would leave him alone in this country :cry:

I also had some general questions about the soul...can it watch over us? What exactly does the Quar'an say about the soul?

Wasalaam, and thank you.

Sorry about your loss. Maybe you should talk to a Sheikh...And I don't think a soul can watch over their loved ones because it goes off to the skies...And it is a soul after all not a Supreme Being to watch the earth which is very very distant...

.
And they ask you (O Muhammad) concerning the Ruh (the Spirit): say the Ruh (the Spirit) is one of the things, the knowledge of which is only with my Lord. And of knowledge you (mankind) have been given only a little.[17:85].


..... Sheikh Faisal Mawlawi, Deputy Chairman of the European Council for Fatwa and Research, states:

“Dead people don’t know what takes place in the life of the living, for they are existing in a different world. Yet, it’s reported that the dead person hears the sound of the people’s footsteps when they leave the cemetery after the burial. Also, on the Day of the Badr the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, addressed the dead amongst the disbelievers.


We can say that all these narrations refer to the close period to the burial. But, after that phase of time the dead person transfers to another world in which he can never feel what is going on the earth.

This is based on the Qur’anic verse: “But you cannot make hear those who are in graves.” (Fatir: 22)”

The Soul's Journey After Death



In the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful



This important book covers an area about which most people have very little knowledge but which is at the same time, of vital interest to all human beings. It outlines what happens to the human soul from the moment of death until the arrival of the Day of Judgement.
It describes the death profess itself, the exact relationship of the soul to the body, the states of the soul after it leaves this world, and the nature of the ongoing relationship between the dead and those who are still alive. Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyyah was born into a scholarly and virtuous family in 691 AH/ 1292 A.D. At that time Damascus was a centre of literature and thought. Many schools were located there and he studied and graduated under the protection, direction and sponsorship of his father. He was particularly influenced by his Shaykh and teacher Ahmad b. Taymiyyah, and also by Ibn ash-Shirazi amongst others. Layla Mabrouk, an eminent, contemporary, Egyptian scholar has skillfully abridged a classic work by the well know scholar.
