Interesting Points Regarding Shab e Barat

on 15th Shaban Many Muslims celebrates Shab e Barat. I wanted to share some interesting points related to Shab e Barat.

People has invented a very unusual beliefs that deads comes back to their homes. So to welcome them we see they often decorates their homes with lights.

But then ALLAH says no one can come back after his/her death? See here, Qur'an, Surah Muminoon Verse 99-100

"when death comes to one of them, he says, "My Lord, send me back That I might do righteousness in that which I left behind." No! It is only a word he is saying; and behind them is a barrier until the Day they are resurrected."

So just think whom to believe? Indeed the whole world can be wrong but is it possible for words of ALLAH [SWT] to get wrong? Of course No Muslim can ever think of it.

But I often gets curious then why people visits Graveyards if they expecting their deads to visit their homes? Just think yourself, you expecting your deads to visit your home (though they aren't even coming) then again you going to Graveyard to meet whom? For picnic?

Until when we will bear the burden of our forefather's traditions? If our forefather doesn't studied IT or Engineering or Medical or if they never used Iphone then can we say because our forefathers never used or studied these things we will not use or study these streams? Nahin na? Then why such a foolish argument when it comes to religion? That too even when we have words of ALLAH SWT and Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad SAW.
