25- The people of heaven will welcome the good soul, and there will be glad tidings for it.
26- There will be no welcome for the evil soul, and only bad tidings for it
27- The Believer will see the Fire from which Allah (SWT) has saved him.
28- There will be a little gap through which the evil man will glimpse the Paradise which Allah (SWT) has denied him.
The Prophet (SM) said: 'The dead person is at- tended by angels. If he was a righteous man they say: 'Come out, O good soul who was in a good body! Come out praiseworthy, and receive the glad tidings of comfort and sweet scent, and a Lord Who is not angry'. They keep on saying this unitl (the soul) comes out, then they take it up to the heaven, and ask for it to be opened for him. It is asked, 'Who is this?' and they say 'So-and-so,' so (the inhabitants of heaven) say: Welcome to the good soul, who was in a good body; enter praiseworthy and receive the good tidings of comfort and sweet scents, and a Lord who is not angry. 'And they carry on saying this until they reach the (highest) heaven where Allah (SWT),may He be blessed and exalted, is. And if he was a bad man, they say: 'Come out, O evil soul! Come out blameworthy, and receive the tidings of a boiling fluid, and a fluid dark, murky, intensely cold!- and other penalties of a similar kind, to match them! [cf. Sad 38:57-58]. They keep on saying this until (the soul) comes out, then they take it up to the heaven and ask for it to be opened for it. It is asked, 'Who is this?' They say, 'It is so-and-so'. They say: 'There is no welcome for the evil soul who was in an evil body. Go back blameworthy. The gates of heaven are not opened for you. So (the soul) is sent back from the heaven, and returns to the grave.
The righteous man is sat up in his grave, not scared or terrified. He is asked: 'In what [religion] were you?' He says: 'I was in Islam'. He is asked: 'Who is this man?' He says: 'Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah (SWT). He brought us clear signs from Allah (SWT) and we believed him'. He is asked: 'Have vou seen Allah (SWT) ?' He says: 'No-one may see Allah (SWT) '. Then he is shown Hell-fire, parts of it consuming others, and he is told: 'Look at that which Allah (SWT) , may He be exalted' has saved you from'. Then he is shown Para dise' and he looks at its beauty and everything in it. He is told: 'This is your placea. And he is told: 'You were certain ( 'ala. 7- Yaqin)' you died certain, and you will be raised certain, in sha 'Allah (SWT) .
The bad man is sat up in his grave, scared and terri fied. He is asked: in what [religion] were you? He says: I don't know. He is asked: Who is this man? He says: I heard the people saying such-and-such, and I said likewise. Then he is shown Paradise, and looks at its beauty and everything in it. He is told, Look at that which Allah (SWT) has denied you. Then he is shown Hell-fire, parts of it consuming others. He is told: This is your place. You were in doubt, you died in doubt and you will be raised in doubt, in sha' Allah 8.
29- The angels smell the scent of the soul of the believer.
30- The believers welcome the new soul of a believer with more joy than the family of one who has been absent, on his homecoming.
31- When the soul joins the souls of other believers, it enjoys respite from the grief of this world.
From Abu Hurayrah (RA)' from the Prophet (SM) who said: «When the believer is taken (by death)' angels of mercy come to him with white silk' and say: Come out to the spirit of Allah. So (the soul) comes out' like the best scent of musk. Then the angels pass the soul to one another' smelling it' until they bring it to the (first) heaven. They say: What is this good scent which has come from the earth? In every heaven' the same question is asked' until they bring him to join the souls of the believers. They are more overjoyed to welcome him than the family of one who has been absent' when he comes home. They ask him: What happened to so-and-so? They [i.e. the angels who have brought
him] say: 'Leave him to rest, for he has been suffering in the world'. He says: He died, didnat he come to you?' They [the angels] say: He has gone to a place where he will have his home in a (bottomless) Pit [cf. al- Qari'ah 101:9]
