Torture and Enjoyment in the Grave. Question of two Munkar and Nakir

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيم

Praise be to God the Creator of the world, the One Who exists without beginning, without end, without location , without a “how” and Who does not depend on time. Nothing resembles Him in anyway and He hears and sees everything without organs. Whatever you imagine, God is different from that. May the elevation in degree and preservation of his community of what he fears for it, be granted to our master MuHammad Al-‘Amin, the Honest One, who called for following Islam, the religion of truth, the religion of all the Prophets: of the First, Adam, to the last MuHammad.

Allâh, ta`âlâ, said in the Qur’ân:

﴿وَمَا يَنطِقُ عَنِ الْهَوَى إِنْ هُوَ إِلا وَحْيٌ يُوحَى﴾

(wa mâ yanTiqu `ani l-hawâ. in huwa illâ waHyuy yûhâ)

It means: « He (Prophet MuHammad) does not convey to the people out of his own inclinations. Rather, he conveys what Allâh reveals to him. » [Ayahs 3-4 of Suratun-Najm]

Allâh, ta`âlâ, sent Prophet MuHammad, the son of `Abdullâh, the son of `Abdul-MuTTalib, with the true Religion. Allâh ordered MuHammad, Salla lLâhu `alayhi wa sallam, to convey the message to the people, which he fulfilled. He conveyed the message truthfully and bravely.

Everything that the Prophet told is true and right, whether it is among the issues of Halal or Haram, the stories of the prophets, or matters that will happen in the future during this life and in the Hereafter.

Among the matters that the Prophet informed about are: the torture in the grave and the enjoyment therein, and the questioning by the two angels: Munkar and Nakir.

The torture in the grave

It is obligatory to believe that Allâh tortures all the accountable blasphemers in their graves. Allâh orders the harmful insects of the Earth to eat their bodies. Also, He orders the Earth to close in on them. Other types of torture will also be inflicted on them. Their graves will become like ditches of Hell. On the other hand, the Muslims who are major sinners, and died without repenting are of two groups:

Those tortured in their graves.

Others forgiven by Allâh from being tortured therein.

The enjoyment in the grave

It is obligatory to believe that Allâh endows his pious Muslim slaves with enjoyment in their graves. Among the enjoyment is for their graves to be lit up like the light of a full moon, and to be widened seventy (70) cubits[1] by seventy (70) cubits. There are also other types of enjoyment.

The questioning of the two angels Munkar and Nakir

It is obligatory to believe in the two angels Munkar and Nakir. They are navy blue and they ask the dead person in his grave: “What did you say about this man MuHammad?” If the dead was Muslim he will say: I bear witness that he is the slave of Allâh and His Messenger. If he was among the blasphemers, he will not say the Two Testifications of Faith. The angels will hit him with a hammer between his ears. Had the mountains been hit with this hammer, they would have melted away.

The questioning by the two angels happens to the Muslim and the blasphemer alike. However, the perfect Muslim will not be frightened or bothered by the questioning, because Allah will make his heart steadfast. The prophets, martyrs, and children (who died before pubescence) are exempted from the questioning in the grave.
