Interrogation in grave

Q:

Asslam-o-Alaikum!

 I hope you are well. My question is what kind of muslims will be able to answer those questions in grave and what kind of muslims will not be able to answer those questions in grave? Jazak-Allah.

Regards,

Anaiza Malik

Wa `alaykum As-Salamu waRahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

The true believers who die in a state of faith will be able to answer all the questions put by the angels correctly. The angels will support them.

Allah says:

“Allah will strengthen or give firmness to those who believe in the firmly rooted word, both in this world and the Hereafter, but the evildoers He leaves to stray: Allah does whatever He will.” (Qur’an 14: 27)

This blessing will be extended at the time of interrogation by the angels. That is why the Prophet (peace be upon him) ordered us to pray to Allah to bestow firmness on the heart of a person after we have buried him or her.

In other words, the hearts of the believers will be firm when they are faced with questions from the angels. And thus, they would be able to answer the questions.

The lesson we learn from this is that we ought to strive hard to remain steadfast in the practice of Islam and pray to Allah to keep our hearts firm and save us from going astray and losing our faith.

One of the prayers of the Prophet was:

O Allah, You are the twister and turner of hearts. Make my heart firm and steadfast on Your religion and the Truth.

Almighty Allah Knows best.
