Whose bodies are not consumed by earth?

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Hadrat Aus (r.a.) reported that the Messenger of Allah (saws) said: "Allah has forbidden the earth to consume the bodies of the Prophets."

Related by Abu Daw'ud and Nasa'i.


It is also reported in several other authentic narrations that the Messenger of Allah (saws) said that the earth does not consume the bodies of the Martyrs who die in the Cause of Allah.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
