This book is a product of Islamic Book Service Pvt Ltd, which focuses on publishing Islamic Books under the light of Quran and Hadeeth (Hadees)."
DEATH AND INHERITANCE: THE ISLAMIC WAY is the English version of Ahkam-i-Mayyit originally written in Urdu by Dr. Abdul Hai 'Arifi, longtime President of Daml-Uloom, Karachi and a highly revered spiritual master in this pan of the world and an authorized deputy of the great Maulana Ashraf Ali of Thana Bhawan, India. This is an indispensable handbook of rules and regulations governing important aspects of death among Muslims. The purpose is to bring basic information on what has to be done in the light of the teachings Of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) when death approaches near, when it takes if place and all that follows in its wake. Since Muslims who are unaware of the correct conduct in this respect are likely to remain deprived of rewards from Allah, Darul-Uloom has published a revised edition of this book in Urdu as a service to the community.
The late Dr. Abdul Hai, during his life-time, had worked on this final authentic version in collaboration with the following reputed scholars:
Maulana Muhammad Yusuf Ludhianavi, Madarsah al-Islamiyyah al-'Arabiyyah, Binnori Town, Karachi
Maulana Sub fan Mahmud, Professor of Hadith, Darul-Uloom, Karachi
Maulvi 'Abdur Rauf, Nai'b Mufti, Darul-Uloom, Karachi
Mufti Muhammad Rafi 'Usmani, President, Daryl-Uloom, Karachi.
For Brother Muhammad Shameem who has prepared the present English version this has been an exercise in love and sacrifice. He has set aside an earlier translation he had already completed from the second unrevised edition during his stay abroad. Since his return to Pakistan, he has done it all over again to bring the subject out in its most authentic form. May Allah bless him for his effort in the way of Allah and make it beneficial for Muslims who read English in many parts of the world. Amin.
