WHAT IS URS SHAREEF?


Urs is the day of the passing away of the noble Saints. The word Urs has been taken from the Hadees: "Sleep just like the bride." (Mishkhaat Shareef) The Angels say to the Pious in the grave, "Sleep with restfulness and comfort just like a bride."
On the day of the passing away of a Saint or on a specific date, his admirers, disciples, followers and relatives assemble together at the grave of the Saint to obtain spiritual benefit and celebrate the anniversary with rejoice.
It is also very worthy to recite the Quraan Shareef and pass on the Sawaab (reward) to their soul and to recite Faatihah and distribute sweetmeat among those present.
