Education through Simplification

The angels Munkar and Nakeer question one in the grave. There are differing words about what they will ask about Rasulullah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). One narration says, 'What do you say about this man?' and one says, 'Who is this man who was sent among you' and there are others. The angels will question in different manners depending on the person. The angels talk for longer or shorter periods of time depending on the person as in some Hadiths additional question or remarks are present. And Allah knows best.

Part of long hadith narrated by Abu Dawood, 4753

So his soul is returned to his body and there come to him two angels who make him sit up and they say to him, ‘Who is your Lord?’ He says, ‘Allaah.’ They say, ‘What is your religion?’ He says, ‘My religion is Islam.’ They say, ‘Who is this man who was sent among you?’ He says, ‘He is the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).’ They say, ‘What did you do?’ He says, ‘I read the Book of Allaah and I believed in it.’ Then a voice calls out from heaven, ‘My slave has spoken the truth, so prepare for him a bed from Paradise and clothe him from Paradise, and open for him a gate to Paradise.’ Then there comes to him some of its fragrance, and his grave is made wide, as far as he can see.

Some people think, 'I'll be a profligate and just learn these answers by heart and enter Jannah'. That world is different to this world; the heart will speak what it contained. A person will answer according to what his actions were.

Question 1

Question 2

Question 3

Question 3 [version 2]

Additional Question 4 [as found in above Hadith mubaarakah]

Great colouring-in trees to observe progress in establishing Salaah. It is quite ingenious because by colouring the leaves in, you can see how healthy your tree is and this should give you an indication of Imaan!

Sadly, when many Muslims are asked who the 4 Rightly Guided Caliphs were, they have no answer.
Sayidina Irbad ibn Sariya narrates from our Messenger s :

'You must then follow my sunnah and that of the rightly-guided caliphs. Hold to it and stick fast to it. Avoid new matters [in the religion], for every new matter [in the religion] is an innovation and every innovation is an error'. [Abu Dawud]

If we do not know who they are, then how are we going to follow them? What a shame and loss to Imaan. This love should be inculcated from an early age.

Their names and nicknames. This can be coloured in:

A few thoughts on the temperament of all 4 are available here and here.
A short list of facts about each one is available here.

Short Vowel Sounds

Long Vowel Sounds

I didn't find the Arabic name for the 2nd type of Dhamma which is called 'Ulta Pesh' in South Asia. This means 'upside down/other way round Dhamma' and that's how I've tried to translate it into Arabic.

Nouns are of three types in terms of nu

1. Singular

2. Dual

3. Plural

The following diagrams show how to make the Arabic Singular, Dual and Plural forms for Nouns in each of the 3 Grammatical Cases:

1. Nominative case المرفوع

2. Accusative case المنصوب

3. Genitive case المجرور

In the Singular form the following Vowel Sounds are used in each of the 3 Grammatical Cases:

In the Dual form the 2 cases of Jarr and Nasab are combined. Therefore, it is the duty of the individual to recognise which case the word is in, by their knowledge of Arabic grammar.

The Plural form [3 or more] is more complicated. There are two types of plural and in one type, there are different ways to make the male and female plural.
