11- Mental faculties will be restored to the dead in the grave.

From 'Abdullah Ibn 'Umar (RA): The Messenger of Allah  (SWT)  mentioned the tormentor of the grave, and 'Umar asked: Will our mental faculties be restored to us, O Messenger of Allah: The Messenger of Allah (SWT)  said: «Yes, just as they are now. 'Umar said: I will put a stone in his mouth!3.
