FACING death is a highly traumatic business, both for those who are dying, and for those who are caring for them. There are so many fears, so many questions, so many worries about coping after the death has taken place. This book is written primarily for those who have lost loved ones and are struggling with bereavement and coming to terms with that loss.
Muslims accept the existence of life after death as a part of their faith. When faced with·the fate of death, it naturally becomes a prime concern, and colours the way the dying person and the bereaved think and act.
This book offers practical advice, not only on Islamic attitudes to the dying, and the correct procedures of burial according to the Sunnah of the Prophet, but also much to console and strengthen the bereaved, to help them though this sad but inevitable experience .
