i am content with your reply to that question BUT i would like to ask you something with regards to this issue.


my brother is bait {allegiance} into a sufi silsala {clan} and one of our sufi brothers who delivers speeches says that prophet mohammed {pbuh} have although died from this world {physically} but are alive SPIRITUALLY in their grave? what do you say to this respected brother burhan?


Secondly, my brother has a picture of his late peer sahab {hazrat sufi mohammed aslam sahab{rehmatullah alai} in a plaque hung on our wall @ home. i read you response to having pictures of animals and human beings at home and how rehmat kai farishtey don`t enter suh homes.

Answer:

 

Prophet (saws) Alive Spiritually in Grave

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person,  no grave, no prophet,  no imam,  no dai,  nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


 

Your Question: one of our sufi brothers who delivers speeches says that prophet mohammed {pbuh} have although died from this world {physically} but are alive SPIRITUALLY in their grave? what do you say to this respected brother burhan?

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 255:

255    Allah! There is no god but He (Alone), The Ever-Living, The Self-Subsisting Eternal.

 

One of the Noble and Exclusive Attributes of Allah Subhanah is that He Alone is the Ever-Living.  It is the inherent nature of all creation, and I repeat, all creation without exception, that they shall perish one day!  

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 28 Surah Qasas verse 88:

88      And call not besides Allah on another god.  There is no god but He. Everything (that exists) will perish, except His Own Face.  To Him belongs the Command and to Him will ye (all) be brought back.

 

Regardless of whether one in creation is a Prophet of Allah or anyone else, if one believes that there is someone in creation who is ever-living, one would have dared to share an Exclusive Attribute that belongs to Allah Subhanah with one in creation; and that would be a manifest form of the abomination of ‘shirk’!

 

Allah is our witness, the Prophets of Allah were human beings and Allah’s slave-servants who were sent with a Mission and a Message from their Lord; and once their mission was accomplished, like all human beings, they met with their appointment of death as Decreed and Determined by Allah Subhanah.   Like all human beings who have tasted death, they too will only be raised up again on the Day of Resurrection.

 

The physical bodies of the deceased are buried in the graves, and the spirit of each in creation are returned back to their Lord and deposited in the realms of ‘Barzakh’ as Decreed by Allah Subhanah.  Neither the ones who are alive can have any contact or information regarding the spirits of the dead, nor the spirits of the dead in the realms of ‘barzakh’ have any communication or information regarding the ones who are alive! 

 

Your Question: well my point is, the late sufi sahab were a real man of allah totally piest and a vali! would hanging their picture at home still be considered wrong?

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 7.841         Narrated by Abu Talha

The Messenger of Allah (saws)  said, "Angels (of Mercy) do not enter a house where there are (animate) pictures."

 

Regardless of how good or pious a person was, even if one was the Prophet of Allah, the prohibition of the display of animate pictures by the Messenger of Allah (saws) would apply at all times. 

 

If one displays any animate picture in one’s houses, one would be in clear violation of the Sunnah and Command of the Messenger of Allah (saws).

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

Burhan
