Salam,

I have been told and I read it in a book (but can not remember the name of the book or the author, although I think it was an ayatollah) that when a person does intiqaal to the next world, the souls are still able to return to their families on Thursday nights. Is this true?

If so, is there any way of being aware of their presence?

What do they see?

I know this is probably a long shot, but is there any way of being able to communicate with them?

Thanks for all your help. I am not coping very well with my loss and I just need to know that somehow he is still with me but feel free to tell me it is not the case if it isn't.

Khuda hafiz.

Optional={option} and content=Prepare Yourself, I guarantee that Imam Reapperance is near! U can't imagine it!The souls come but not in the form of what U can imagine! They can return in a form of bird or any other form. I have seen it islamic movies which describes the prove of my statement. Well Your father is no more in trouble there and I mind it sis!

Visitation of the Dead to Their Families

Here are two authentic ḥadīth about the deceased visiting their families. According to these aḥādīth, the deceased visits his family at least every Jumu`ah, during the beginning of dhuhr or shortly before that. Also, based on deceased’s merits and actions he can visit his family every day, every two days or every three days.

From Hafṣ bin al-Bakhtarī from Abī `Abd Allāh (Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã) said: “Verily, the (dead) mu’min (believer) visits his family, and he see what he loves and he is veiled from what he dislikes. And verily, the (dead) kāfir (disbeliever) visits his family and sees what he dislikes and is veiled from what he likes.” He (Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã) said: “And from them are those who visit every Jumu`ah, and from them are those who visit in proportion to his actions (a`māl)”

And Isḥāq bin `Ammār asked Abā al-Hasan al-Awwal (Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã) about a (dead) believer visiting his family? So he (Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã) said: “Yes”. He (Isḥāq) said: “How often?” So he (Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã) said: “It is in proportion to their merits, from them are those who visit every day, and from them are those who visit every two days, and from them are those who visit every three days”. He (Isḥāq) said: “I saw during the course of his speech, that he (Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã) said: “They at least (come) on Jumu`ah.” So he (Isḥāq) said: “At what time?” He (Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã) said: “During dhuhr (noon), or shortly before that. Allāh sends with him (the deceased) an angel, who makes him see what gladdens him, and conceals from him what he dislikes, so he perceives happiness and returns qurrah al-`ayn (i.e. delighted)”

and

salat of hadiya mayyit: http://www.isijmarhumeen.com/Namaz-e-HadiyatMayyat.php

That's great, thank you. I'm really sorry to keep going on but do you know what the niyat would be for the namaz e Hadiya mayyit?

thats actually a really good question, u have to remember that ur ibada is for Allah (aj) only and for no one else, thus ur niyyat is always qurbatan illalah.

However all u need to do is think that the sawab of this act should be gifted (hadiya) to the deceasced.

He isnt lost lalala, everytime you think of him he is with you. But regarding his spirit literally visiting: i dont know a specific dua (is interesting to see previous answers), but as well as trying those, just simply supplicate to Allah for a greater awareness for yourself, greater 'intuition' etc, so if he is visiting, you can be open to it to sense it.

Fee amanillah

Read Ghufaila prayers..it works miracles. I've been told that all your hajaats will be granted. You can pray for your father in the qunoot. My gran whom I grew up with passed away this year so I know that coping with death is not easy. Personally, I am at peace now because I know she is in a better place. After her death I dreamt of her a few times, so did my mum and other relatives and she seemed happy and joyous. Every time you remember your father just send a salawat or any dhikr in his niyya. On Thursday nights don't forget to send a fatiha for his soul. With time we get used to the loss of our loved ones, that's life. Also if he never made a Hajj pilgrimage you can send someone to go on his behalf next year, he will get the rewards for it.

Just remember to be a good, God fearing person because I've heard that parents will also be judged based on the a'maal of their children..

Yes, I lost my father.

Sister,

Maybe you would, like everybody else, hate me for saying this---but that is what I have learnt by living with my loss for the last 15 years-----we do not cope with it, we just live with it, for the rest of our lives---from the moment of it is, it stays with us--side by side, stride by stride, step by step----sometimes like a dull pain and sometimes like a malevolent entity---it would assail you out of no where---while you are working in the kitchen, in library, sitting alone or chatting with other with artificial joviality---sometimes you won't even know but then touch your face and realize it's wet with tears; from now one you would unconsciously search for the face who resemble him and yearn to hear to voices which have the same pitch---even if you try not to--and you won't even try not to---you would keep on recalling all the sweet things said, all bitterness expressed, the hurt you might have caused and the disappointment which you could have saved.

It's a companion for life, Sister, it won't go anywhere. The way you are a part of him and he yours--pain of having him gone is also now a part of you.

As far as the other question is concerned, you got some good suggestions---though once I tried and looked for ways of seeing her in front of me--but then gave up soon; something in my heart told me that I would never see her again, not now, not in this world--I have to cross the bridge to see her on the other side of life; then she would be there---not the cancer eaten , swollen and silent young woman I saw for the last time but the beautiful , spirited and intelligent young girl who was my mother......till that day I would keep on reliving the 6.5 years I lived with her.
