The Ambiya (Alayhimus Salaam) being alive in their graves
http://ihyaauddeen.co.za/?p=4198Q: I have a problem understanding the belief about Hayat-un-Nabi. What does it mean? I have heard from many scholars that to oppose this belief isdeviation, but I can't even begin to understand it. Does it mean that our Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is alive just like us in his grave?A: It is an established fact that all the Ambiyaa (Alaihimus Salaam) are alive in their graves. This is proven through authentic Ahaadith which reach thelevel of tawaatur (most authentic category of hadith). Undoubtedly we are all aware that every soul shall taste death. Hence, the Ambiyaa and shuhadaaare no exception to this rule and experience death like the rest of mankind. Allah Ta`ala says: 
﴿
Indeed you (O Muhammad [Sallallahu alaihi wasallam]) are to taste death and they will also taste death. (Surah Zumar, verse 30)However, in regard to the Ambiyaa and shuhadaa they are blessed with life after death in their graves which resembles the life of this earthly abode.The rest of mankind's life in the grave is a life linked with the soul. Hence, with the passing of time, their bodies decompose and only the soul remainsin the life of the Barzakh. As far as the Ambiyaa and the shuhadaa are concerned, the life they receive is a special life which resembles the life in thisworld. Their souls as well as their bodies are preserved in their graves. Allah Ta`ala says regarding the shuhadaa: 
:
﴿
Do not say regarding those who have been slain in the path of Allah that they are dead. Instead, they are alive, but you do not perceive. (Surah Baqarah,verse 154) 
﴿
:
 Never regard those slain in the path of Allah as dead. Rather, they are alive in the presence of their their Rabb and provided with sustenance. (SurahAle Imraan, verse 169)
 
The Ulama explain that if this is the condition of the shuhadaa, who are of a lower status than the Ambiyaa, then what doubt will one have regardingthe Ambiyaa that they also receive the same privilege and honour of being given life after death. Instead the Ulama explain that the life the Ambiyaaenjoy is of a far greater level than the life of the shuahadaa. Hence, upon their demise their nikaah with their wives do not terminate and their wealth isnot distributed as inheritance among anyone. As far as the shuhadaa are concerned, upon their demise, their nikah terminates and their estate isdistributed.Hereunder are authentic Ahaadith relating to this subject with the statements of the Muhadditheen and Fuqahaa: 1)1. Hazrat Anas (Radiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: "The Ambiya are alive in their graves and they performSalaah." [1]2)

)2. Hazrat Abu Hurairah (Radiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: "Hazrat Isa (Alayhis Salaam) will descend fromthe skies (before qiyaamat) as a just ruler and he will travel to Makkah Mukarramah for Hajj or Umrah. Thereafter he will come to my grave and greetme with salaam and I will reply to his salaam. [2]3)

)3. Hazrat Anas (Radiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: "On the night of ascension (me'raaj) I passed by Musa(Alayhis Salaam) and I found him standing in Salaah in his grave." [3]4)

)4. Imaam Muslim (Rahmatullahi Alayh) also reports in his Kitaab, "Saheeh Muslim" that Rasulullah (Sallallhu Alayhi Wasallam) said: "I once sawmyself amongst a group of Ambiya and I saw Isa (Alayhis Salaam) and Ebrahim (Alayhis Salaam) standing in Salaah." [4]
 
5)5. Hazrat Abu Hurairah (Radiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: "Whoever recites Salaat on me at my grave, Ihear the Salaam; and whoever recites salaat upon me from afar, it is conveyed to me (via the Malaaikah)." [5]6)

)6. Hazrat Aws bin Aws (Radiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “The most virtuous of all days is the day of Jumu’ah. It was on this day that Aadam (Alayhis Salaam) was created, the trumpet will be blown on this day and on this day people will be caused tofall unconscious. Hence, recite abundant durood upon me on this day. Your durood will be presented before me.” One Sahaabi asked Rasulullah(Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam): "O Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallm), how will our durood be presented upon you after your demise whereas your  body will decompose after death?" Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “Allah Ta’ala has made it haraam upon the earth to consume the bodies of Ambiyaa.” [6]7)

)7. Hazrat Ibn Abbaas (Radiyallahu Anhu) reports: "We were once travelling with Nabi (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) between Makkah Mukarramahand Madinah Munawwarah when we passed by a certain valley. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) asked us: 'Do you know which valley is this?'We replied that this is the Valley of Azraq. Nabi (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: 'I see Nabi Musa (Alayhis Salaam) passing through this valley inthe condition that he is placing his fingers in his ears supplicating to Allah Ta’ala and reciting the talbiyah of Hajj.'" Nabi (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)also mentioned aspects regarding the complexion and hair of Nabi Musa (Alayhis Salaam) which the narrator Dawood did not remember. Hazrat IbnAbbaas (Radiyallahu Anhu) further says: "We travelled some distance ahead until we came to a mountain-pass whereupon Nabi (Sallallahu AlayhiWasallam) asked us as to which mountain-pass this was. We replied that it was the mountain-pass of Harasha or lift. Nabi (Sallallahu Alayi Wasallam)thereafter said: 'I see Nabi Yunus (Alayhis Salaam) on a red she camel wearing a woollen jubba holding onto the fibre halter of his camel passingthrough this mountain-pass while reciting the talbiyah.'"
