The Grave Punishment and Blessings (Part-1)




1- Allah's hesitation to take the soul of a Believer.

From Abu  Hurayrah (RA) who said: The Messenger of Allah (SWT) said: [A«Allah. may He be exalted, said:Whoever shows enmity to some one devoted to Me, I shall be at war with him. My serA­vant draws not near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have enjoined upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him, I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him, and were he to ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it. I do not hesitate about anything as much as I hesitate about [seizing] the soul of My faithful servant: he hates death and I hate hurting him». [al-Bukhari].

2-  The presence of Shaytan  at the deathbed.

The Shaytan is most eager to be present at a person A deathbed, so that the end of a personal life may be accompanied by sin and rebellion [i.e. towards Allah (SWT), just as he is ever-eager to be present in all of a personal deeds. This is indicated in the Hadith narrated by Jabir (RA), that the Messenger of Allah (SWT ) said: A«The Shaytan is present with any one of you in everything he does; he is present even when he eats food. So if any one of you drops a mouthful of food, he should remove anything dirty on it and eat it, and not leave it for the Shaytan. When he finishes (food) he should lick his fingers, for he does not know in which portion of his food the blessing lies».


1- The Kafir seeks to return to the world when death comes.

Allah, may He be exalted, says:

(In Falsehood will they be) until, when death comes to one o f them, he says: 'O my Lord! send me back (to life),- in order that I may work righteousness in the things I neglected!'- By no means! It is hut a word he says. '- Before them is a partition till the Day they arc raised up. [al-Mu'muinun 23:99-100],

2- The agonies of death.

Al-Bukhari narrated from 'A'ishah (RA) who said: The Messenger of Allah (SWT)  said: There is no god but Allah. Truly there is agony in death'.

3- A Kafir's belief at the point of death is not acceptable.

Allah (SWT)  said: "When Pharaoh was drowning, he said: 'I believe that there is no god but He in Whom the Children of Israel believe.' Jibril told me: 'O Muhammad, if only you could have seen how I took the black mud of the sea and shoved it in his mouth for fear that the mercy of Allah would reach him"2.
