Assalam-o-alaikum! I saw dead body of my sis wrapped in kafan. My mother kept it folded in washing machine. The people came for janaza, white sheet of cloth was laid on floor, the dead body was placed in middle around which people sat in circle. I felt sad for her. Then I saw 2 pieces of clothes which are usually put over dead bodies, one was red the other was black in colour. On the red one Ya Ali + Quranic verses were written in golden. On the black one the name Zafar and Quranic verses were written in silver. I told my mother to put red cloth on me when I die. Then I thought to how can I be buried next to grave of Hazrat Ali (R.A), as I am female and he is male and not even my amaal are up to the mark! Then I picked the black piece and asked my mother that has Zafar 5 children?
audhu billah mina ‘sh-shaytani ‘r-rajeem,
Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem,
wa `alaykum salam,
Insha-Allah you and your sister will “die before you die” with the blessings of Sayyidina Ali (a.s.), Ahl al-Bayt, and Sayyidina al- Mahdi (a.s.).
