Can Shaheed or martyrs hear us?

Can a shaheed hear us ? I mean if my father is shaheed can he know that I cry for him and will he get my messages to him ? Will he be a part of my happiness and joy or not ?


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

Allah says in the Glorious Quran: And say not of those who are slain in the way of Allah: "They are dead." Nay they are living though ye perceive (it) not. Quran [2:154]

In the light of the above guidance of the Glorious Quran, it is indeed true that the martyrs are alive, but we are not in a position nor do we have such knowledge that we can perceive that.

The life in the grave is not like the life of this world. The martyrs are alive in al-barzakh. Life of al-barzakh comes in between life in this world and life in the Hereafter.

Dear sister, the basic principle concerning the dead is that they do not hear the words of the living humans, as Allah says in the glorious Quran: “but you cannot make hear those who are in graves” Quran[ 35:22]

Dear sister, the martyr cannot know what is happening on the earth and nor can the living make them hear anything. And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
