In 1932, bodies of two Sahaba-e-Kiraam (Hazrat Abullah bin Jabir RadiAllahu Anhu and Hazrat Huzaifah bin Al Yamaan RadiAllahu anhu) were shifted to new graves. This is a very rare picture of this occassion.Though in normal cases and circumstances the dead bodies in the grave decompose and disintegrate yet there are proofs where the dead bodies of martyrs, prophets and saints have been found intact when their graves were dug.

In 1932 A.D. (1351 A.H.) the then ruling King of Iraq Shah Faisal I, dreamt that he was being addressed by Hudhaifa al-Yamani, who said :-

"O king ! Remove Jabir ibn Abdullah Ansari and me from the bank of river Tigris and bury us at some safe place because my grave is already water-logged, (full of water) while Jabir’s grave is slowly getting water-logged."
This dream was repeated again the next night but King Faisal I, did not pay attention to it on account of his pre-occupation with state affairs. On the third night Hazrat Hudhaifa was seen in the dream by the grand Mufti of Iraq. Hazrat Hudhaifa said to the grand Mufti :- “I have been directing the king since two nights to transfer our Bodies but he has not paid any heed. Tell him emphatically to arrange for the transfer of our graves!”

So after discussing this matter, the King, his Prime Minister and the Grand Mufti decided to carry out this work. It was decided that the Grand Mufti should issue a fatwa (religious ruling) on this matter and the Prime Minister will issue the fatwa to the press, so that the public may know about this great event. It was declared that on 10th Zilhajj after noon prayers the graves shall be opened and the holy bodies shall be transferred to another place.

As it was Hajj season, pilgrims had gathered in Mecca. They requested King Faisal to postpone the event for a few days so that they all could attend the event after performing the Hajj. Hence, the King postponed this event to 20th Zilhajj.
After noon prayers, on 20th Zilhajj 1351 A.H. a large number of Muslims and non-Muslims gathered in Baghdad, and the city was heavily crowded. First when the grave of Hazrat Hudhaifa was opened water was found inside. The body was lifted with a crane in such a way that it safely came on a stretcher. Then the stretcher was lifted by the King, the Grand Mufti, the Prime Minister and Prince Farooq of Egypt and brought to a glass coffin box made especially to keep the holy bodies. The body of Hazrat Jabir was also transferred to the glass box in the same scrupulous manner.

The most marvelous spectacle was now seen by the huge crowd that had gathered to witness this great event. Both the holy bodies of these true companions of the Holy Prophet (SalAllahu Alaihi Wa aalihi wassallam) were fresh and intact while their open eyes issued forth such divine light that the spectator’s eyes were dazzled. Furthermore, their coffin, clothes, kaffan were also intact and at first glance, it appeared as if these heroes of Islam were alive. The two bodies were then taken away and buried afresh near the grave of another great hero of Islam, Salman-e-Farsi, in Salman Park which is 30 miles from Baghdad. This miracle amazed the scientists, philosophers and doctors. They were all bewildered and spellbound to witness this great miracle.

A German physiologist who had been showing a lot of interest in this was so impressed by the conditions of the bodies, which were buried for more than a thousand years, that he immediately came to the Grand Mufti, held up his hands and said, “What more evidence can there be in support of Islam. I embrace Islam so teach me about it!” Thus before thousands of people this German doctor became a Muslim. His example was followed by many Christians and Jews and for a long time it continued in Baghdad and a large number of people became Muslims as a result of this miracle.

Now let us all sit-back and think over this event and derive a lesson from this miracle. Pondering over such events is potent food for the mind and serves as an eye-opener to humanity.

Ibn Bunan al-Asbahani (رحمه الله) says: I once saw Nabi (صلى الله عليه وسلم) in a dream and asked, “O Nabi of Allāh (صلى الله عليه وسلم), have you given any special honour to Muhammad Ibn Idrees ash-Shafi’ee (رحمه الله)?” Nabi (صلى الله عليه وسلم) replied, “Yes, I have asked Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) to excuse him from reckoning on the Day of Qiyamah.” I asked, “What was the reason for this?” Nabi (صلى الله عليه وسلم) replied, “He recited a unique Durood shareef/Salawat upon me.” I asked, “What Durood/Salawat did he recite?” Nabi (صلى الله عليه وسلم) asnwered, “He would say,

Allaahumma salli ‘alaa muhammadin kullamaa dhakarahudh-dhaakiroon, wa kullamaa ghafala ‘an dhikrihil-ghaafiloon
_______________________________________ ‘O Allaah (سبحانه و تعالى), bestow Your mercy and blessings upon Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) whenever he is remembered, and bestow Your mercy and blessings upon Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) whenever he is not remembered.’
This Durood Shareef/Salawat is called Durood-e-Shafi’i because Hazrat Imam Shafi’i رضي الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰ عنه used to recite it constantly and he received glad tidings of Jannah in this world. This Durood Shareef/Salawat is of a very great significance. It brings tremendous prosperity, health, happiness and success in this and the next world.

Hazrat Allama Sakhavi رضي الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰ عنه has written in his book that Abdullah bin Abdul Hakam saw Hazrat Imam Shafi’i رضي الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰ عنهم in a dream after his death and inquired about life after death. Imam Shafi’i رضي الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰ عنه told him that because of the continuous recitation of the above Durood Shareef/Salawat, Allah Ta’ala gave him the most exalted position of the highest grade in Heaven and forgave him. Hazrat Imam Muzni رضي الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰ عنه has also narrated exactly the same story.

Friends of Allah...

During the first seven years of his commitment, Bahauddin Naqshiband (Alaihi Rehma) lived a life of valuable services ranging from serving the sick, needy, homeless and wounded animals, to cleaning up the roads that people used. He expressed the feeling of “nothingness” that peaked in his heart in the following lines:

The world is wheat, I am hay,
The world is nice, I am bad…

He also stated that he had achieved the greatest divine inspirations during the years of these services.

Because Imam Abu Hanifa (Rahimahullah) refused to issue a judicial opinion upon the personal desires of the caliph, he chose prison instead of being the chief justice of Baghdad. Thus he manifested a great example of justice and righteousness at the expense of his own life.

Imam Ahmad b. Hanbal (Rahimahullah) chose to be a tortured prisoner as a result of his opinion in the famous debate of whether the Qur’an was created or not, rather than compromising his opinion and what he believed to be the truth. In short, all these examples of bravery and strength through faith are only a few of the uncountable examples that reflect the exemplary good manners of the friends of Allah.

Allah Allah kehne se Allah Nahi milta..
Yeh Allah Walay hai jo Allah se Mila detay hai

You won’t achieve closeness with God, by only calling out God God…
The people of God are the ones who can bring you closer to Him

Junaid al-Baghdādī says that the most important condition and manner in friendship with a brother in religion is to meet him with a smiling face and make him happy, while Abū Uthmān Hirī says in this regard that it means to smile him as long as he is not committing a sin. Abū Abdullah Sālimah states that nice talk and smiling face are distinctive characteristics of the friends of Allah.

Ḥasan al-Baṣrī summarizes the good manners as follows:
“The essence of good manners is to spread goodness, not to disturb anybody and to have a smiling face.”

*(RadiAllahu Anhu)
*(Alaihi Al Rehma)

The authority of Awliya even after they pass away :

"… Allah has mentioned about the pure souls of the Awliya. This is because when the soul leaves the body, it goes towards the ‘Angelic world’ (Aalam Al-Malakoot), it swims in that world and goes quickly towards the Divine presence. Thus, because of this power and strength, it becomes amongst those who manage the affairs and transactions of this world.”

(Tafseer Al-Baydaawi under the commentary of 79:5)
