Death- what happens in the grave

Rasulullah (Sallalloho alaihe Wa-aalay wasallam) said: “When a man dies and
his relatives are busy in funeral, there stands an extremely handsome man by
his head. When the dead body is shrouded, that man gets in between the
shroud and the chest of the deceased.

When after the burial, the people return home, 2 angels, Munkar and
Nakeer(names of two special Angels), come in the grave and try to separate
this handsome man so that they may be able to interrogate the dead man in
privacy about his faith. But the handsome man says, “He is my companion, he
is my friend. I will not leave him alone in any case. If you are appointed
for >interrogation, do your job. I cannot leave him until I get him admitted
into Paradise”. Thereafter he turns to his dead companion and says, “I am
the Qura’an, which you used to read,sometimes in a loud voice and sometimes
in a low voice. Do not worry.

After the interrogation of Munkar and Naker,you will have no grief. When the
interrogation is over, the handsome man arranges for him from Al-Mala’ul
A’laa (the angels in Heaven) a silk bedding filled with musk.  Rasulullah
(Sallalloho alaihe Wa-aalay asallam)
said: On the Day of Judgement, before
Allah, no other intercessor will have a greater status than the Qura’an,
neither a Prophet nor an angel. Rasulullah(Sallalloho alaihe Wa-aalay wasallam) said: “Pass on knowledge from me even if it is only one verse”. > > > May Allah
bestow this favour on all of us and we could learn and understand Qura’an.
