    Urs 1
    How to know whether he is a wali?
    Once a Janaazah, which was praised by people, passed before the Holy Prophet(saws). He said, "It has become Waajib." Another Janaazah which was spoken badly of passed by him a little later and he said the same thing. When Hadrat Umar (ra)asked him what had become Waajib, Sayyiduna Rasoolullah(saws)explained, "Jannat for the first and Jahannam for the second." He continued, "You are the witness of Allah(swt)on earth." ( Miskhaat, Kitaabu/-Janaaiz, Baabul-Mashyibil-Janaazah )
    The Holy Quran states, "We have made you the just nation so that you may give witness on people."- 2/143 .A Muslim is a witness on both the Day of Qiyaamat and in the world.
    This proves that he who is deemed to be a Friend of Allah (Wali) by the general body of Muslims is also a Wali in the sight of Allah(swt). Muslims bring to mouth only that which is established in the sight of Allah(swt).
    The visible rulings of life are emplaced after death, so he who was Muslim in his lifetime will be deemed to be one after death as well. The command of the Shariah applies to evident. A mere possibility has no credibility. Likewise, he who was a saint in his lifetime is also a Saint after death.
    A Nation, which does not honour its true servants and heroes, is an ungrateful Nation and is bound to confusion.
    "When the Munkar and Nakir (the angels who question the deceased after death), questions the wali in the grave about Allah, Islam and the Prophet (SAWS) and the Wali successfully answers the questions, they (lovingly) declare Sleep like the bride who will only be awakened by the beloved (Mishkaat). Hence the word Urs is traced to a Hadith.
    ‘Urs is the day of the passing away of the noble Saints. The word ‘Urs has been taken from the Hadith: "Sleep just like the bride." (Mishkhat) The Angels say to the Pious in the grave, "Sleep with restfulness and comfort just like a bride. In Arabic, the bride and groom are called Aroos.
    "Urs, is done annually for a saint by his disciples (Mureeds). They hold this Urs in the mosque near the grave of the saint. They recite the Qur’an and various scholars give lectures on different topics of Islam. At the end a du’a is said and then hospitality is done for the people. The hospitality is solely done for the blessings.
    To a wali, death is the culmination of a life long yearning to meet Allah and His Rasool (SAWS). A single gathering of Urs is attended by many Mashaaikh, Ulama and Sufiya.
    Ibne Ali Sheebah reports that: "The Prophet (SAWS) used to visit the graves of the martyrs of the Battle of Uhud every year. He used to send Salaams to them. The four righteous Khulafa upheld this Sunnah also, who used to visit the graves of Shuhadae Uhud (Those companions of the prophet (SAWS) who lost their lives in the Battle of Uhud, which took place in Madina). (Fatawa Shaami, Tafseere Kabeer Durre Mansoor).
    Shaami states, "Ibn Abi Shalba (ra)states that the Holy Prophet(saws)used to go to the graves of the martyrs (Shuhadaa) of Uhud every year." - Vol. 1, Baabu Ziyaaratil-Quboor.
    Tafseer-e-Kabeer and Durre-Mansoor state, "It is proven that the Prophet(saws). used to go to the graves of the martyrs every year and make Salaam to them. The four Khulafaa used to also do this."
    Hazrat Maulana Shah Abdul Aziz Muhaddith Dehlwi(ra) has written that if the day of Urs is meant for invocation or reminding for the deceased one, there is no harm. That gives benefit to the living as well as the deceased ones. (Fatawa Aziziyah)
