Once our Prophet (P.B.U.H.) sat to a grave and told: The grave talks daily and say: O man: have you forgotten me: I am the hot bed of insects: I am the place of torture and catastrophe. I am tormentor of all the humans save those fortunates for whom I am broadened. Then our Prophet (P.B.U.H.) concluded saying: The Grave is either a garden of paradise or a ditch of the hell
Once Hazrat Ali (K.W.) visited the graveyard, accompanied with Kumail. When he reached it, he cast a glance at the graves and addressed the buried and told: O occupants of the graves: O residents of the deserted place: O dwellers of solitude and estrangement: Tell us about you: As far as our case is concerned, our properties and assets have been distributed, and our children reduced orphans, and over wives remarried. This is our predicament. What is your situation? He kept silence for a while, then looked at Kumail and told: O Kumail: If these grave-dwellers be allowed to utter, they could say that the best provision is the piety. Then Hazrat Ali burst into tears for a long while and told: O Kumail: The grave is a container of the works and this is well-obvious to those who are about to die.
It is a common sight now-a-days that people smoke even in the graveyards. They go for entertainment while interment as they are in merriment, and discuss worldly topics ignoring the fact that the Grave is the entrance to the world hereafter. Please concentrate on the life thereafter when you see this Entrance.
