THE TERMINATOR OF WORLDLY PLEASURES

Re: What Happens After Death by UmarIbnShittu(m): 10:59am On Oct 22, 2017
Interrogation in the Grave
Like death, the questioning of the grave is unavoidable.
Everyone who has passed away is actually alive in the
grave but the true nature of this life is beyond the realm
of human comprehension, and while in that grave, each
and every person will be interrogated about his faith.
No one will be able to abscond. For the transgressor
and the disbeliever, it will be a testing, traumatic
experience about which the Prophet (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi
wa sallam) said,
“It has been revealed to me that you
will be tried in the grave; in severity, it
will resemble the trial of al-Masīḥ al-
Dajjāl.” [1]
The interrogation of the grave is something terrifying to
behold, “[In this world], I have not seen a sight more
harrowing than the grave” [2] and our Messenger (sall
Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) was so apprehensive of it and
what comes after that one time, he stood by the side of
a grave as a burial was happening, weeping and
counselled his Companions,
“My brothers! Prepare yourself for this
day!” [3] After burying the deceased, he
would say, “Ask for forgiveness and
firmness for your brother, because he is
now being questioned.” [4]
“The grave is the first stage of the Hereafter. If a person
succeeds there, what comes after will be easier; but if
he fails, what comes after will be much harder.” [5]
Success and failure will be determined entirely by the
faith of a person and what they did during their life. In
order for us to know how to pass this most important
of tests, we first need to know what questions will be
asked. Once we know what they are, we can determine
what steps need to be taken, what preparation needs to
done, in order to succeed.
Our narrative begins at the point when the soul is
returned to the body in the grave and the deceased
hears the footsteps of the mourners as they leave. [6]
Some people will be visited by two angels; stern, dark
skinned with blue eyes, [7] voices like thunder and eyes
like lightning-bolts: Munkar and Nakīr. [8] Others will be
visited by just one of them. [9] They will make him sit
up and sit up he will, rubbing his eyes. The sun will
appear in front of him, red and dim as if just setting.
[10] If he was a true believer, his prayers will be
positioned at his head, his zakāh on his right side, his
fasting on his left and the remainder of his good deeds,
specifically charity, joining ties of kinship, good
treatment of other people, by his legs. Punishment will
approach him from each of these directions and each
of those deeds will state, “You have no means of
access here.” [11] The angels will begin to question him
but he will say, “Give me some time to pray.” They will
say, “You can do so later, first answer.” [12]
Despite their alarming appearance, the believer will
neither be terrified nor overwhelmed. [13] The angels
will ask different people different sets of questions, but
all will revolve around belief in the Messenger (sall
Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) and following him:
“It is about me that you will be tested
and about me that you will be
interrogated.” [14]
“What did you say about this man, Muḥammad (sall
Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam)?” The believer will reply, “I
bear witness that he is Allāh’s servant and
Messenger.” [15]
“What do you know of this man?” The believer will
reply, “Muḥammad, Allāh’s Messenger, he came to us
with guidance and clear proofs. We answered him,
believed in him and followed him.” [16]
“What did you say about this man?” He will reply,
“Allāh’s servant and Messenger, I bear witness that
there is none worthy of worship save Allāh and
Muḥammad is his servant and Messenger.” [17]
“What were you on?” He will reply, “Islām.” He will be
asked, “Who is this man?” He will reply, “Muḥammad,
Allāh’s Messenger (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam). He
came to us with guidance and clear proof and we
believed in him.” He will be asked, “Have you seen
Allāh?” He will reply, “None can see Allāh.” [18]
“Who is your Lord?” He will reply, “My Lord is Allāh, my
Prophet is Muḥammad.” [19]
“What did you worship?” If Allāh guided him, he will
reply, “I worshipped Allāh.” He will be asked, “What did
you say about this man?” He will reply, “He is Allāh’s
servant and Messenger.” [20]
“Who is your Lord?” He will reply, “My Lord is Allāh.”
They will ask, “What is your religion?” He will reply, “My
religion is Islām.” They will ask, “Who is this man that
was sent to you?” He will reply, “He is Allāh’s
Messenger.” They will ask, “How do you know?” He will
reply, “I read Allāh’s Book, had faith in it and believed
it.”’ [21]
Once the believer has responded, the angels will say,
‘We knew you would say this,’ [22] and a voice will then
proclaim,
“My servant has spoken truthfully,
prepare his bed from Paradise, open a
door to Paradise for him and clothe him
in the garments of Paradise.”’ [23]
Through that opening, he will look on at its beauty and
splendour. A gateway to the Fire will also open before
him and he will see it, one part consuming the other and
will be told, “Look at what Allāh saved you from, this
would have been your abode had you disobeyed
Him.” [24] Both sights will increase his joy. [25]
His grave will expand, stretching out as far as he can
see, [26] becoming a green, fertile garden, [27] and it will
be lit up like on a night when the moon is full. [28] [29]
He will ask permission to go to his family to tell them
the great news, but will be told to rest and given the
glad tidings, [30]
“You spent your days in certainty, you
died in a state of certainty, and in a
state of certainty will you be
resurrected by Allāh’s permission.” [31]
A man with a comely face, nice garments and a
pleasant odour will come to him and say,
“Rejoice, you have tidings that will
delight you: rejoice in good pleasure
from Allāh and gardens of eternal bliss.
This is your day which you have been
promised.”
He will ask, “Who are you, your face is beautiful and
bodes well?” He will reply, “I am your good deeds, by
Allāh I always knew you to be quick to do good deeds,
slow to do bad deeds, may Allāh give you the best
reward.” He will then supplicate,
“My Lord, quicken on the last
hour!” [32]
He will then fall asleep, sleeping the sweetest sleep
imaginable until resurrected and, while like this, his soul
will be placed in the body of a bird which eats from the
trees of Paradise. [33] [34] It is concerning this that
Allāh’s Messenger (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) said,
“The soul of a believer is a bird that
eats from the trees of Paradise until it
is restored to his body on the Day of
Rising.” [35]
The two Angels will also come to the disbeliever and
make him sit up, and sit up he will, terrified and
overwhelmed. [36] They will ask him, ‘“Who is your
Lord?” He will reply, “Ah! Ah! I don’t know.” They will
ask, “What is your religion?” He will reply, “Ah! Ah! I
don’t know” They will ask, “Who is this man that was
sent to you?” He will be unable to recall his name and
will be told that his name is Muḥammad (sall Allāhu
ʿalayhi wa sallam), and he will reply, “Ah! Ah! I don’t
know.” [37] He will be told, “You did not know, neither
did you follow those who did.” [38]
The same will be asked of the hypocrite, the person
beset with doubt. However, in answer to the questions,
he will say, “I don’t know, I just said what other people
were saying.” [39] They will say, ‘We knew you would
say this,’ [40] and he will be told, “You did not know,
neither did you follow those who did.” [41] He will then
be warned,
“In doubt did you spend your days, in
doubt did you die, and upon doubt will
you be resurrected by Allāh’s will.’ [42]
A voice will proclaim,
“My servant has lied, prepare his bed
from Hell for him, open a door to Hell
for him and clothe him in the garments
of Hell.”
He will then suffer its intense heat and inhale its
poisonous fumes, [43] and look on at the Fire. An
opening to Paradise will also open before him and he
will behold it in all its splendour and be told, “This would
have been your place had you only obeyed Allāh. Allāh
replaced this with that!” There will be no limit to the
depth of his anguish and despair. [44]
His grave will constrict and compress around him so
much that his ribs interlock, [45] and a man with an ugly
face, coarse garments and an offensive odour will come
to him and say, “I have news that will distress you for
this is your day which you have been promised.” He will
ask, “Who are you, your face is revolting and forebodes
evil?’ He will reply,
“I am your evil deeds, by Allāh, I
always found you slow to do good
deeds and quick to do evil deeds, may
Allāh reward you with evil.”
He will then cry out,
“My Lord, do not bring the last
hour!” [46]
A blind and deaf person will come to him carrying an
iron hammer; were he to hit a mountain with it, he
would pulverise it. [47] All of mankind, together would
be unable to carry it, let alone prevent it striking its
target. [48] He will strike the disbeliever with that rod,
crushing him and turning him to dust and everything
between the east and the west will hear it strike, except
for man and jinn. [49] Then his body will be returned as
it was and he will strike him again causing him to
scream in agony, the sound of which is heard by
everything except man and jinn. [50]
He will be set upon by seventy serpents, each having
seven heads which will proceed to maul him, [51] then
he will be rendered deaf, dumb and blind. [52]
Both the disbeliever and the hypocrite will be punished
until Allāh resurrects them. [53]
