Islamic Peace: Hi all readers! In this article I will explain the sentences spoken by the earth and the grave every day. Those sentences are reminders for us to always do good deeds. The goal is for our happiness after we die someday.
Abdurrahim bin Ahmad al-Qadli in Daqqa’iqul Akhbaar fii Dzikri al-Jannati wa an-Naar explained, that Anas bin Malik radliyallahu ‘anhu said, every day the earth calls for ten sentences;
First; O son of Adam, you walk on my back and place back in my stomach.
Second; You acted on my back and you were tortured in my stomach.
Third; You laugh on my back and you cry in my stomach.
Fourth; You eat unclean food on my back and you eat caterpillars in my stomach.
Fifth; You rejoice on my back and you grieve in my stomach.
Sixth; You are collecting unclean things on my back and you are melting in my stomach.
Seventh; You are stylish (arrogant) on my back and you become despicable in my stomach.
Eighth; You walk happily on my back and you grieve in my stomach.
Ninth; You walk in the light on my back and you sit in the dark in my stomach.
Tenth; You walk in a group on my back and you sit alone in my stomach.”
In a hadith it is explained, that every day the grave exclaims three times, “I am a house of solitude, wild stars, scorpions, and snakes. I am the house of darkness. I am a home of caterpillars. What have you prepared for me?!”
It is said, that every day the grave cries out five times, “I am a house of solitude, so make it calm for you by reading Quran. I am a house of darkness, so light me with evening prayer (Tahajud prayer), I am a land house, then bring a bed in the form of good deeds, I am a house of poisonous snakes, then bring the antidote in the form of “bismillahirrahmanirrahim” and shed tears (regretting sin), I am the house where Munkar and Nakir ask grave questions, so often say لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ (there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah) on my back so you can answer it.”
All Readers! That is a brief explanation of the sentences spoken by the earth and the grave every day. May be useful! Amen!
I think that’s enough for this article. May be useful!
