What Happened When Muhammad Mehfooz Shaheed’s Grave Was Dug

A Shaheed has great value in the eyes of Allah, it has been said in the Quran

وَلاَ تَقُولُواْ لِمَنْ يُقْتَلُ فِي سَبيلِ اللّهِ أَمْوَاتٌ بَلْ أَحْيَاء وَلَكِن لاَّ تَشْعُرُونَ

“Those who are killed in the cause of Allah: Do not call them dead.” In fact ! they are living, though you can not perceive that life”.


ATV’s Morning Show host Farah Hussain has been conducting the show very well. This time she interviewed the brother of Muhammad Mehfooz Shaheed, who received Nishan-e-Haider. The brother of the Shaheed told her something that was really shocking. He told her that when his brother got the Nishan-e-Haider it was decided that the Shaheed’s dead body will be shifted to another grave. Many people were against the idea because naturally the corpse would have been eaten up by then.

He said that when the grave was dug six months after his brother passed away, a rain cloud appeared out of nowhere and it started drizzling. The grave smelled really good and when the coffin was being lifted there was fresh blood coming out of it. The body looked like it had been buried only minutes ago. Also, the flowers on the coffin were still fresh.
