Quran Al-Baqarah 02 Ayaat 01-20

Dear Readers:  Following is my understanding of reading Quran.  I am only a human being who is seeking for right direction. Being human, I am full of errors and praying Allah to guide me to the right path, the path that will lead me to success.   Please read Quran and understand it yourself.  Following are my reference notes only.  Following notes should not be quoted as Quran.  Please don’t quote them.  Quran is only in Arabic and not in any other language.

Quran Al-Baqarah 02:01-20 – Ayaat from 01 to 20 in Al-Baqarah (2nd Surah of Quran) describe about three kind of people.

1) Guided people  (Ayaat 2,3,4 and 5), These are the people who follow right path.  They believe on hidden (Ghaib), they perform their prayers (Salah), they spent what they earn (Charity), they believe on Quran and on any book that was sent from God before Quran, they believe on day of Judgement.

2) Those who deny the truth.  (Ayaat 6 and 7).

3) Those who pretend to be guided people but they are not:  (ayaat 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20)

اور اہل کتاب کے ساتھ بحﺚ ومباحثہ نہ کرو مگر اس طریقہ پر جو عمده ہو مگر ان کے ساتھ جو ان میں ﻇالم ہیں اور صاف اعلان کر دو کہ ہمارا تو اس کتاب پر بھی ایمان ہے اور جو ہم پر اتاری گئی ہے اور اس پر بھی جو تم پر اتاری گئی، ہمارا تمہارا معبود ایک ہی ہے۔ ہم سب اسی کے حکم برادر ہیں

Hadith related to grave (Qabar)

Sahi Bokhari (sahih bukhari)

Ref:  http://www.usc.edu/org/cmje/religious-texts/hadith/bukhari/023-sbt.php

 

Volume 2, Book 23, Number 422:

Narrated Anas:

The Prophet said, “When a human being is laid in his grave and his companions return and he even hears their foot steps, two angels come to him and make him sit and ask him: What did you use to say about this man, Muhammad ? He will say: I testify that he is Allah’s slave and His Apostle. Then it will be said to him, ‘Look at your place in the Hell-Fire. Allah has given you a place in Paradise instead of it.’ ” The Prophet added, “The dead person will see both his places. But a non-believer or a hypocrite will say to the angels, ‘I do not know, but I used to say what the people used to say! It will be said to him, ‘Neither did you know nor did you take the guidance (by reciting the Quran).’ Then he will be hit with an iron hammer between his two ears, and he will cry and that cry will be heard by whatever approaches him except human beings and jinns.”

Volume 2, Book 23, Number 443:

Narrated Ibn Abbas:

The Prophet once passed by two graves, and those two persons (in the graves) were being tortured. He said, “They are being tortured not for a great thing (to avoid). One of them never saved himself from being soiled with his urine, while the other was going about with calumnies (to make enmity between friends). He then took a green leaf of a date-palm tree split it into two pieces and fixed one on each grave. The people said, “O Allah’s Apostle! Why have you done so?” He replied, “I hope that their punishment may be lessened till they (the leaf) become dry.”

Volume 2, Book 23, Number 456:

Narrated Anas bin Malik:

Allah’s Apostle said, “When (Allah’s) slave is put in his grave and his companions return and he even hears their footsteps, two angels come to him and make him sit and ask, ‘What did you use to say about this man (i.e. Muhammad)?’ The faithful Believer will say, ‘I testify that he is Allah’s slave and His Apostle.’ Then they will say to him, ‘Look at your place in the Hell Fire; Allah has given you a place in Paradise instead of it.’ So he will see both his places.” (Qatada said, “We were informed that his grave would be made spacious.” Then Qatada went back to the narration of Anas who said;) Whereas a hypocrite or a non-believer will be asked, “What did you use to say about this man.” He will reply, “I do not know; but I used to say what the people used to say.” So they will say to him, “Neither did you know nor did you take the guidance (by reciting the Quran).” Then he will be hit with iron hammers once, that he will send such a cry as everything near to him will hear, except Jinns and human beings. (See Hadith No. 422).
