Salaamu Aleykum our beloved Tariqah family members
Can you please tell me exactly what happens to the soul at the point of death and it’s journey thereafter. Where does it go before Janazah, and then what happens, assuming the soul is part of Naqshbandi Tariqah, under the wing of our beloved Mawlana Sheikh Nazim (May Allah SWT give him a long healthy life – Ameen). Where does the soul reside up until the Day of Judgement?
Alaykum as salam,
Everything that you ask is described in detail in Ibn al-Qayyim’s book Kitab al-Ruh translated and published as ‘The Soul’s Journey after Death.’ As for Murids of Mawlana the we believe that we will benefit from his intercession as described in the Hadith that the Awliya shall intercede for whom they wish among the Umma. May Allah ease for us the
pangs of death and resurrect us among the righteous.
