Shaikh Ali Raoudbari – may Allah be pleased with him – narrates:


Once I placed a Derwish in the grave. I removed the cover from his head and placed his head on the ground. I had pure intention which was that Allah Almighty would see the poor state of this person and have Mercy on him. However, as I placed his head on the ground, he opened his eyes and declared, “O Abu Ali! Do not embarrass me in front of the people of the world especially those who did not respect me in the world.”


I then asked in surprise, “O my master! Are you alive even after death?”


The Derwish replied, “Without doubt I am alive as well as every other friends of Allah and according to my means, I will also certainly help you in future.” (Sharahus Sudur, 860)


As for those who are sceptics, they should bear the following advice in mind which is that the friends of Allah Almighty do not die, they actually travel from one dimension to another or they travel from one abode to another. They are able to read their Salaah in their graves, they are able to recite the Qur’an in the grave and they are also able to help and assist others from their graves. (Ruhuni Hikaayah)
