"0 Soul at peace, return unto your Lord, well-pleased and well- pleasing! Enter among My servants! Enter My Garden"…

'The Grave'...the Grave is a word that inspires fear. We are pained when it is mentioned. We are not aware of the delight it can contain. Indeed, the bliss of the Grave is better than any delight that this world can offer. The Messenger, blessings and peace be upon him, said, 'When the believer is near to death, the angels of mercy come to him. When his soul is taken, they place it in a piece of white silk and bear it to the gate of Heaven. They say, 'We have never smelled a sweeter fragrance than this!" His soul is asked, "How is so-and-so? How is so- and-so?" It will be said, "Let him rest. He has just come from the suffering of the world!"... (NASA'EE)

The Grave or the Inter space is the third stage of human existence. The first is the domain of the mother's womb with all the constriction and the three darknesses it contains. The second is the domain of this world in which we grow up, which we are familiar with and from which we acquire good and evil and the means to happiness or misery. The third is the domain of the Inter space which is wider and vaster than the domain in which we now live - the domain of this world.

The fourth and final stage is the Everlasting Domain which comprises the Garden and the Fire. There is no domain after it for it is the Domain of Eternity.

Allah the Great says, 'Whoever obeys Allah and the Messenger, they are with those whom Allah has blessed, the prophets, the sincere, the martyrs, and the righteous. Very excellent companions they are. The souls who are in bliss enjoy this state from the moment of death.

Question: What is the Islamic ruling about a male wearing a ring?

Answer: A male is allowed to wear a sterling silver or silver plated ring with the condition that the silver content of the ring does not weigh more than 4.374 grams (1 Mithaal).

Wearing a silver ring is only considered a Sunnah for those who need to stamp with it, such as a Sultan, judge (Qadhi), trustee, author, etc.

It is best - for other than those who need to use a ring for stamping - not to wear a ring.

ولا يتختم الا بالفضة فيحرم بغيرها كحجر .... وترك التخم لغير السلطان والقاضي أفضل

قول الاختيار ؛ التختم سنة لمن يحتاج اليه كالسلطان

والقاضي ومن في معناهما

(فتاوى الشىامى ج٦ ص٣٦٢)

Frozen food labeling

I have changed my system for labeling homemade freezer meals. I used to carefully note in large clear letters, "Meatloaf" or "Pot Roast" or "Steak and Vegetables or "Chicken and Dumplings" or "Beef Pot Pie."

However, I used to get frustrated when I asked my son what he wanted for dinner because he never asked for any of those things. So, I decided to stock the freezer with what he really likes.

If you look in my freezer now you'll see a whole new set of labels. You'll find dinners with neat little tags that say: "Whatever," "Anything," "I Don't Know," "I Don't Care," "Something Good," or "Food." Now no matter what my son replies with when I ask him what he wants for dinner, I know that it is there waiting.
