This Revised Enlarged Edition of one of the most popular and comprehensive guide on the Death of a Muslim in English is based upon the authentic Teachings of Pious Scholars of Islam and outlines the method of acquiring success in this world & the Akhirah (Hereafter).
This New Edition is conveniently divided into user-friendly chapters for ease of reference and deals with Spiritual and practical issues:
* What to do upon the approach of a Muslims death and how to register a death; how to correctly bathe, shroud and bury the janazah; how to perform the janazah Salah. Common shortcomings on these occasions are highlighted: delaying janazah; feeding hordes of visitors; depriving women of their rightful inheritance; collective Quran completion ceremonies; etc.,
* What to do in cases of stillbirth, miscarriage and accidents;
* How to spiritually and practically cope with bereavement;
* Eye-Opening episodes related to death, the grave and poems based upon the epic Dars-e-Ibrat & Muraqabah Maut are related to make fascinating reading;
* How and when inheritance should be distributed and performance of those Sunnah deeds, which truly benefit the deceased;
* New fill-in copies of Health-Care Proxy & Living Will, Last Will & Testament are included…no need now to search for the will;
* The apparently daunting task of Probate and Grants are addressed in a simple step-by-step manner; the often ignored but prohibitive issue of Inheritance Tax is tackled with suggestions on how to legally avoid this voluntary tax on death.
