What are the questions we will be asked in the grave?


Sayyiduna Al Bara ibn ‘Azib (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said – as part of a lengthy narration: “….Two angels will appear and ask the person:

1) Who is your creator (rabb)?

2) What is your religion?

3) Who is this man that has been sent to you? [Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam]…”

(Sunan Abi Dawud, hadith: 4720, Musnad Ahmad, vol. 4 pg. 287, Musannaf ibn Abi Shaybah, hadith: 12185 and Shu’abul Iman, hadith: 390)

Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah) has graded the above hadith as authentic (sahih)

(Shu’abul Iman, hadith: 390)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
