Description from the publisher:
We inevitably go through the journey starting in this life, and extending into the grave, before our final abode in the hereafter, in the process, we pass through stages of sickness, death, and the intermediate life in the grave (al-Barzakh). These are the subjects with which ?The Inevitable Journey? deals over a sequence of four titles: I. Sickness: Regulations & Exhortations II. The Islamic Will & Testament III. Funeral Regulations IV. Life in al-Barzakh.
Vol I - Sickness: Regulations & Exhortations
This book is the first in the series. It deals with a subject that afflicts the human being, in various forms, from birth until death. It strikes as light as a simple cold or allergy, and as hard as a plague or cancer. It keeps the human being under check, reminding him of his weakness, and giving him a chance to turn to the One Who possesses to afflict and cure. It deals with sickness, its regulations, and lessons associated with it. Furthermore, it contains an extensive coverage of regulations relating to the disabled. Despite its great importance to the Muslim, it is hard to find the subject matter of this book compiled all in one book, not only in English, but in Arabic as well. We thank Allah (SWT) for facilitating this.
Vol II - The Islamic Will & Testament
We inevitably go through the journey starting in this life, and extending into the grave, before our final abode in the hereafter. In the process, we pass through stages of sickness, death, and the intermediate life in the grave (al-Barzakh). Writing a will is a religious obligation on every capable Muslim. It protects against many problems and conflicts that could arise after a persons death. This obligation is more emphasized in the West; Failing to write a well founded will may result in the distribution of ones estate in discord with the Islamic law, and may lead to losses for some of the rightful inheritors.
Vol III - Funeral Regulations
This book is the third in the series. It deals with the actual occurrence of death, and all lessons and regulations relating to it. It includes a close-to-complete translation of al-Albani's Ahkaam ul-Janaa'iz. In addition, it contains extensive supplementary material, and an enhanced presentation with tables and diagrams, making it a useful handbook, reference, and source of admonishment concerning death. We believe that this is the first book in English presenting this material, based on purely authentic evidence, to this level of depth, breadth, and practicality. Indeed, we offer praise and thanks to Allah (SWT) for facilitating this.
Vol IV - Life in al-Barzakh
Covers the moment of death, the soul's trip to the heavens, the final test, the righteous and the sinful in al-Barzakh, saviours from the grave's punishment, communication with al-Barzakh, and things that benefit the dead.
