The Prophet of Allaah (salAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said:
“When a deceased person is laid in his grave, he hears the sound of the footsteps of people as they go away. If he is a believer, the prayer will stand by his head, the fasting will be to his right, alms to his left, and all other good deeds of charity, kindness to relations, and good behavior will be by his feet.”
~ [Ahmad]

Then two fearsome, dread-inspiring angels, called Munkar and Nakeer, visit the soul to ask it about its religion, God, and Prophet. The believing soul sits upright in its grave as Allaah (subhaanahu wa ta’aala) grants it the strength to answer the angels with full faith and certainty.

A tense ceasefire has officially come into effect in Gaza after Israel and Hamas agreed to a 72-hour pause in their three-week conflict. The United States and United Nations brokered the temporary truce to allow for humanitarian relief and bring both sides to the table for talks on a longer-term halt to hostilities.

After a night of heavy bombardment, shelling continued in the Gaza Strip and rocket fire from Hamas hit Israel minutes before the ceasefire began at 8am on Friday local time. An Israeli army spokesman said it was looking into reports four Palestinians were killed and 15 wounded by tank fire nearly two hours after the truce began.

Delegations from Israel and Palestine are due to convene in Cairo for negotiations to be mediated by the Egyptian government.

BAJAU LAUT, PHILIPPINES

Those who have seen “Cast away” with Tom Hanks probably imagined what it would be like drifting on a small boat in an open sea. But it is hard to believe that there is actually a community spending ever hour of every day out on the open water. The Bajau community charts the waters of the Sulu Sea off the southwestern coast of The Philippines with many going their whole lives without ever setting foot on dry land. In fact, the community only sets foot on land to bury their dead or to construct new boats. And would you believe that they claim to suffer from land sickness when they leave their boats?
