Allah's peace and blessings beyond each and every one of you I writings in the 90s. Among the books, which I wrote is one called
funeral rites in Islam.
This is the hardback design, and it was based on technology to deal with Barney, his work on funeral rites in Islam. It isn't a direct translation it's presented using material from his work as well as from other works on funeral rites because of the fact that so much shirk is involved in funerals, that most people are completely lost, they have no idea. They're engaged in practices, etc, which are not in conformity with Islam at all.
And rites around the graves etc, is what leads to shirk, worshipping those who are dead and even worshipping Prophet Muhammad Salah Salem, etc. So there needed to be something in English when there are things written in Arabic, but nothing in English at the time on the funeral rites as a book, there were writings, articles, etc, which could be found in other texts, which were published texts which included all of the aspects of Islam etc.
But this was dedicated to the funeral rites and Hamdulillah. It received a good welcome amongst English readers who benefited tremendously from it, especially in countries that are far away from the original centers of Islam, masha Allah, we ask Allah to accept it, and let it be a foregone or clarify clarifier for many who are confused about dealing with the dead, Baraka Luffy comes from Rama to live over a cat
