Respected Sister,

Think of Hadith narrations. The whole story sounds like a fabricated Hadith.

"GAMES PEOPLE PLAY" is a great little book worth your reading. The very name of the book should answer your query :-)

Do not mind relationships. People are people. They can play games as a group :-)

BURYING THE BODY AS A TRUST
Conveying hearsay as ‘seen’ is one of the greatest crimes people can commit on people.
- Dr. Shabbir

To my knowledge, Muslims are the only people in the world who carry this silliest of beliefs as if it is an Article of Faith. It is said that a body can be buried temporarily at one place and entrusted to the earth to be exhumed and taken to another town at a later date, even after years. And lo and behold! The body will come out fresh as a rose since the earth will keep her trust and not let it decay. That was silly, but now the crime: You will find people telling you that they have witnessed it happening. Conveying hearsay as ‘seen’ is one of the greatest crimes people can commit on people. As a physician, I have repeatedly supervised exhumations and, invariably, found the bodies rotten and stinking according to the laws of nature.

SHE WAS SITTING UP IN THE GRAVE!
August 15th, 2008 by Dr. Shabbir

1957:

As a little child, I was visiting with my parents a village where one of my uncles lived. Two of my older teenage cousins told me a hair-raising story.

They said: A woman had died last week. Accidentally, a police officer dropped his pistol in the grave and the grave had to be opened to retrieve the pistol! “What!” - exclaimed the little Shabbir. They said, “It’s true, believe it or not.” They also presented a friend as witness. Allah had blessed the little Shabbir with a critical mind. He won’t accept anything irrational. So, he found it hard to believe that a grave would be opened for a pistol, but they continued, “We saw that the beautiful woman was sitting up nude in the grave. Her long hair were tied to her big toes and she was screaming with pain.”

I asked my dad to take me to the police officer but no one knew anything about him. So, my kind and compassionate father, who always liked to satisfy the curiosities of children, took me to the Imam of the village Masjid. The Imam Masjid said that he was present at the scene and that he had made sure to see the horrible scenario he saw. The woman used to style her hair and the doom of the grave was sure to befall her. I asked him why he would see an unclothed woman, even dead. He responded, “Beta, Shara’ mein sharm nahin.” (There is no shame in Shari’ah). What again? Isn’t modesty an integral part of Faith?

I was not satisfied but my kind dad stopped me from arguing with an elder who was, in addition, an ‘Aalim (a man of knowledge).

Fortunately, the next morning I got hold of a small local newspaper.

It had a CLARIFICATION NOTICE FROM THE POLICE DEPARTMENT: “There is a rumor circulating in Pasrur and around that a grave was opened only because a police officer’s pistol was accidentally left in it. The rumor is totally unfounded and FALSE. Your police department is here to serve you and not to cause any inconvenience to the citizens.”
