Communication with the dead

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.


Q-1: can you dead relatives guide you in your life?

There is absolutely no way for the dead to guide those who are alive!! For guidance, the Quran and Sunnah are more than sufficient for the believers.


Q-2: is it possible to communicate wiht the dead?

Once a soul leaves this worldly abode, it is stationed in the abode of ‘barzakh’ until the Day of Judgement. None who is alive can visit or communicate with those in ‘barzakh’, and no one who is in ‘barzakh’ can revisit the earth or communicate with any who are alive.


All these modern ‘shops’ which provide services of communicating with their dead relatives and loved ones, are nothing more than con-artists and frauds who try to deceive and cheat simple people out of their hard-earned money!


Q-3: do you believe that we can have a connection wiht someone that enables us to feel when somethiing is wrong wiht them?

Human beings do not have the knowledge of the ‘unseen’, whereby they know for sure what is wrong with which person! But because Allah has bestowed human beings with intelligence and the power of reasoning, he is able to deduce the condition of the person by looking at the persons actions, behavior, color, body language, tone of his voice, etc.


But to assume that a person has an ‘automatic’ connection with another person who lives thousands of miles away without any mode of communication, is incorrect belief and assumption.


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


Your Brother in Islam,
