True Companion

A Beautiful Hadith

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alaihe wasallam) said: 'When a man dies and his
relatives are busy in funeral, there stands an extremely handsome man by
his head. When the dead body is shrouded, that man gets in between the
shroud and the chest of the deceased.

When after the burial, the people return home, 2 angels, Munkar and
Nakeer(names of two special Angels), come in the grave and try to separate
this handsome man so that they may be able to interrogate the dead man in
privacy about his faith. But the handsome man says, 'He is my companion, he
is my friend. I will not leave him alone in any case. If you are appointed
for interrogation, do your job. I cannot leave him until I get him admitted
into Paradise '.

Thereafter he turns to his dead companion and says, 'I am the Qur'an, which
you used to read, sometimes in a loud voice and sometimes in a low voice.
Do not worry. After the interrogation of Munkar and Naker, you will have no
grief.'

When the interrogation is over, the handsome man arranges for him from
Al-Mala'ul A'laa (the angels in Heaven) silk bedding filled with musk.

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alaihe wasallam) said: 'On the Day of Judgement,
before Allah, no other Intercessor will have a greater status than the
Qur'an, neither a Prophet nor an angel.'

Rasulullah (Sallallahu alaihe wasallam) said:

'Pass on knowledge from me even if it is only one verse'.

May Allah bestow this favour on all of u
