THE PHYSICAL PUNISHMENT OF SINNERS IN THE GRAVE

From Samurah Ibn Jundub: The Messenger of Allah  (SWT) often used to ask his Companions: Has any one of you seen a dream?" So whoever Allah (SWT)  wished to do so would tell of a dream he had seen. One morning' he told us: "Last night' two persons came to me (in a dream)' and said to me: "Let's go!" So I set off with them' and we came to a man who was lying down' with another man standing over him holding a big rock. He was throwing the rock down on the other man's head' smashing it. The rock rolled away' and the thrower went after it and brought it back. By the time he came back to the man' his head has been restored' then he proceeded to do the same thing again. I said' ' Subhan-Allah  (SWT) Who are these two?' (My two companions) said to me: 'Go on' go on!'.

"So we went on' and came to a man lying flat on his back' with another man standing over him holding and iron hook. He put the hook in one side of the man's mouth and tore off that side of his face to the back (of his neck)' and then tear his nose likewise from front to back' and his eye from front to back' and then do the same on the other side of the man's face. He had hardly finished on the second side' when the first side was restored' so he went back and started again. I said: ' Subhan-Allah (SWT) ! Who are these two?' (My two companions said: 'Go on' go on!'.

"So we went on' and came across something like a Tannur[a kind of oven: usually a pit lined with clay for baking bread].- I think he said: In it there was much noise and voices.- We looked into it' and inside it were naked men and women' with flames coming up to them from underneath; When the flames reached them' they cried loudly. I asked' 'Who are these?' (My two companions) said: 'Go on' go on!'.

"So we went on and came to a river- I think he said: red like blood- and in the river there was a man swimming' and another man on the bank who had gathered many stones. The man who was swimming came to the one who had gathered many stones' and opened his mouth' and the man on the river-bank placed a stone in his mouth. The man in the river swam away' then came back' and every time he came back' he opened his mouth and a stone was put in it. I asked (my two companions)' 'Who are these two?' and they said to me' 'Go on' go on!'

"So we went on, and came to an ugly man' with the most repulsive appearance you have ever seen. Beside him was a fire' and he was kindling it and running around it. I asked: 'Who is this?' (My two compa- nions) said to me: 'Go on' go on!'.

So we went on, and came to a garden of deep green dense vegetation' with all sorts of spring colours. In the midst of the garden there was a very tall man' so tall that I could hardly see his head. Around this man were more children than I had ever seen. I asked: 'Who is this? Who are they?' My two companions said: 'Go on, go on!'.

"So we went on and came to a river- I think he said: red like blood- and in the river there was a man swimming' and another man on the bank who had gathered many stones. The man who was swimming came to the one who had gathered many stones' and opened his mouth' and the man on the river-bank placed a stone in his mouth. The man in the river swam away' then came back' and every time he came back' he opened his mouth and a stone was put in it. I asked (my two companions)' Who are these two? and they said to me' 'Go on' go on!'.
