In This Life and the Next

The Prophets (upon them be peace) had their souls returned to them after they died, and they are alive with their Lord. Our Prophet (peace be upon him) saw a group of them and led them in prayer, and he told us, and what he says is truth, that our prayers are presented to him, and that our greetings reach him, and that God forbade the earth from eating the bodies of the Prophets. I have written a book proving that they are alive. Oh God, let us live according to the Sunna of this noble Prophet, and let us die on his religion, and bring us together with him in this life and the next, for you are capable of all things.

– Imam al-Bayhaqi, Kitab al-I’tiqad.
