The Prophet (SM) said: "When the soul of the be- liever comes out, two angels receive it and take it up- he mentioned its good scent- and the people of heaven say: 'It is a good soul, which has come from the earth; may Allah  (SWT)  bless you and the body which you occupied'. The soul will be taken up to its Lord, then it will be said: Take it to its destiny

41-  The believer will sleep in his grave.
42- The deceased  will  long to tell  his  family of his good news.

The Messenger of Allah  (SWT)) said: "When the de- ceased is buried, two black-and-blue angels come to him' one called al-Munkar and the other called al- Nakir. They ask: 'What did you use to say about this man?' He will say that what he used to say was: 'He is the slave of Allah  (SWT)  and His Messenger, I bear wit­ness that there is no god but Allah (SWT)  , and that Muham- mad is His slave and Messenger. They will say: We knew that you would say thisa. Then they will expand his grave for him, seventy cubits by seventy' and light it for him. Then he will be told' 'Sleep'. He will say: 'I want to go back to my family and tell thema. They will say: 'Sleep like the groom who should not be woken by any except those he loves most'- until Allah (SWT)   will resurrect him from his place of rest.

- If he was a hypocrite' he will say: 'I heard the peo- ple saying such-and-such' and I said likewise. I do not know'. They will say: 'We knew that you would say this'. Then the earth will be told' "Press him'; so it will press him and his ribs will be crushed together. It will continue to punish him until Allah (SWT)   resurrects him from that place13.

43- The grave of the believer will be filled with green- ery until the Day of Resurrection.

The Prophet (SM) said: "When a person is placed in his grave and his companions leave him' he can hear their footsteps. Then two angels come to him'

sit him up' and ask him: 'What did you use to say about this man?' i.e. Muhammad. The believer will say: 'I bear witness that he is the slave and Messen- ger of Allah (SWT)  '. Then he will be told: 'Look at your place in Hell-fire' which Allah (SWT)   has exchanged for a place in Paradise'. So he will look at them both. Then his grave will be widened for him' to a distance of seventy cubits' and it will be filled with greenery until the Day of Resurrection.
