The 3 Questions Asked In The Grave





When the servant is placed within his grave and the dirt is cast upon him and the people depart from him returning to their families, the two angels will come to him in his grave to ask him 3 questions.

His soul will be returned to him within his body and he will be made to live the life of the Barzakh.

It is not a life similar to the life of the Dunyaa (world). It is a life which Allaah is the Most Knowledgeable concerning its details. They will make him sit up

What Happens In The Grave After Burial

Narrated by Al-Bara' ibn Azib (may Allaah be pleased with him) that We went out with the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him) accompanying the bier of a man of the Ansar. When we reached his grave, it was not yet dug. So the Messenger of Allaah (Pbuh) sat down and we also sat down around him as if birds were over our heads. He had in his hand a stick with which he was scratching the ground.

He then raised his head and said: Seek refuge with Allaah from the punishment in the grave. He said it twice or thrice.

He hears the beat of their sandals when they go back, and at that moment he is asked: O so and so! Who is your Lord, what is your religion, and who is your Prophet?



Two angels will come to him, make him sit up and ask him:

1. Who is your Lord?

He will reply: My Lord is Allaah. They will ask him:

2. What is your religion?

He will reply: My religion is Islam.

3. They will ask him: What is your opinion about the man who was sent on a mission among you?

He will reply: He is the Messenger of Allaah (Pbuh)

They will ask: Who made you aware of this? He will reply: I read the book of Allaah, believed in it, and considered it true; which is verified by the words of Allaah: "Allaah establishes those who believe with the word that stands firm in this world and the next."

Then a crier will call from Heaven: My servant has spoken the truth, so spread a bed for him from Paradise, clothe him from Paradise, and open a door for him into Paradise. So some of its air and perfume will come to him, and a space will be made for him as far as the eye can see.

He also mentioned the death of the infidel, saying: His spirit will be restored to his body, two angels will come to him, make him sit up and ask him:

1. Who is your Lord?

He will reply: Alas, alas! I do not know.

2. They will ask him: What is your religion?

He will reply: Alas, alas! I do not know.

3. They will ask: Who was the man who was sent on a mission among you?

He will reply: Alas, alas! I do not know.

Then a crier will call from Heaven: He has lied, so spread a bed for him from Hell, clothe him from Hell, and open for him a door into Hell.
Then some of its heat and pestilential wind will come to him, and his grave will be compressed, so that his ribs will be crushed together.

One who is blind and dumb will then be placed in charge of him, having a sledgehammer such that if a mountain were struck with it, it would become dust.

He will give him a blow with it which will be heard by everything between the east and the west except by men and jinn, and he will become dust. Then his spirit will be restored to him.



(Sunan Abi Dawud 4753)

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: "When the deceased or he said when one of you - is buried, two angels, black and blue eyed come to him. One of them is called Al-Munkar, and the other An-Nakir. They say: 'What did you used to say about this man?' So he says what he was saying (before death) 'He is the slave of Allaah' and His Messenger. I testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allaah and that Muhammad is His slave and His Messenger.' So they say: 'We knew that you would say this.' Then his grave is expanded to seventy by seventy cubits, then it is illuminated for him. Then it is said to him: 'Sleep.' So he said: 'Can I return to my family to inform them?' They say: 'Sleep as a newlywed, whom none awakens but the dearest of his family.' Until Allaah resurrects him from his resting place.“ "If he was a hypocrite he would say: 'I heard people saying something, so I said the same; I do not know.' So they said: 'We knew you would say that.' So the earth is told: 'Constrict him.' So it constricts around him, squeezing his ribs together. He continues being punished like that until Allah resurrects him from his resting place."

(Jami` at-Tirmidhi 1071)

Narrated by Ibn `Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings be upon him) said, "When anyone of you dies, his destination is displayed before him in the forenoon and in the afternoon, either in the (Hell) Fire or in Paradise, and it is said to him, "That is your place till you are resurrected and sent to it."

[Sahih al-Bukhari 6515]
