WHEN DEATH ACCOST AND GRAVES WAIT A MUSLIM
A believer before speaking and work with a good deed is certainly must consider it first, and these opinion associated with the fear of Allah Ta’ala, Heaven and Hell and also punishment and pleasure of grave, then would not have to appear in a believer except good and true deeds.
And if a believer do a sin and fault, then he will see that the torture of grave and Hell is closer to him than his slipper, so he will not feel calm and peaceful until he asked forgiveness to Allah Ta’ala of all his sins, repent to Allah and cry back to Him and humble in repentance.

Infidels/unbelievers ask to be returned again to the World
حَتَّى إِذَا جَاءَ أَحَدَهُمُ الْمَوْتُ قَالَ رَبِّ ارْجِعُونِ. لَعَلِّي أَعْمَلُ صَالِحًا فِيمَا تَرَكْتُ كَلَّا إِنَّهَا كَلِمَةٌ هُوَ قَائِلُهَا وَمِنْ وَرَائِهِمْ بَرْزَخٌ إِلَى يَوْمِ يُبْعَثُونَ
[For such is the state of the disbelievers], until, when death comes to one of them, he says, “My Lord, send me back. That I might do righteousness in that which I left behind.” No! It is only a word he is saying; and behind them is a barrier until the Day they are resurrected. (Al Muminoon : 99-100)

فَإِنَّكَ لَا تُسْمِعُ الْمَوْتَى وَلَا تُسْمِعُ الصُّمَّ الدُّعَاءَ إِذَا وَلَّوْا مُدْبِرِينَ
So indeed, you will not make the dead hear, nor will you make the deaf hear the call when they turn their backs, retreating. (Ar Room : 52)

The extract of soul will be followed by the eye

When do you will be asked?
Inquiries begins when burial has finished. Rasulullah sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam when he returned from the burial then he stand facing the grave and said:
“Pray for forgiveness for your brother and ask his constancy, because he is being asked now ” (Narrated by Abu Dawud)
Barra ‘bin’ Azib Radhiallahu ‘anhu said: We set out with Rasulullah sallallaahu’ alaihi wa Sallam delivered the funeral someone from the Anshar, we turned up at the funeral. When the buried Rasulullah sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam sit facing the Qiblah and we turned around it seemed to be in over our heads there is a bird (as calm and quiet), while he holds a scepter. He looks at the sky and then look to the ground, he raised his eyes and down three times, then he said: “Ask forgiveness of Allah Ta’ala for you from torture of grave”. (He put it up two or three times), and then said: “O Allah, I ask protection from You from the torture grave” (3x) and said: “A servant who believes in good condition when it was disconnected from the world for the hereafter (sakaratul death) , will come down angels to him from heaven, their faces like a clean white sun, they take the shroud and perfume from Heaven, from your seat until they are as far the eye can see, then came the angel of death (death Malakul) sitting in (near) head your, then he (the angel) said: ‘O good soul (in another narration: quiet), out towards forgiveness from Allah Ta’ala and His favor. “Rasulullah Sallallaahu ‘Alaihi wa Sallam said: “Then the soul get out from The believer in trickle flow like water flowed, and the angel of death (malakul maut) take place (in another narration: When his soul comes out, all the angels that exists between heaven and earth, and the angels in heaven pray, and are opened for him the gates of heaven, there is no occupant of a door unless they pray to Allah Almighty that his soul was raised with them on their side). When the angel of death has taken his soul, the other angels do not leave it in the hands of just reaper despite their split second to pick it up and put it in a shroud and the perfume. That is the word of Allah Ta’ala: “…when death comes to one of you, Our messengers take him, and they do not fail [in their duties]. ‘. (Al An’aam : 61). And forth from the soul the smell of musk fragrance ever you find on this earth. ”
He extended his saying: “Then the angel went up, and they did not pass (by bringing the spirit of) a group of other angels unless they ask: ‘Who is this good soul’. The angel replied: ‘So and so the son of so and so’. They mention his name with the best name in the world when they give them up to heaven to earth, they requested that the gates of heaven opened, then opened, and the angels close to Allah Ta’ala in every sky drove up to the sky next to Him came in the seventh heaven, and Allah Almighty will say: ‘And what can make you know what is ‘illiyyun? It is [their destination recorded in] a register inscribed, Which is witnessed by those brought near [to Allah]. (al Muthaffifin : 19-21)
Then wrote in his notes on ‘illiyyin, then said:’ Bring him back to the ground. Because, indeed, I promise to man that I created them from the earth and to earth I return them and from earth I remove them at any other time. ”
Rasulullah sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam then said: “Then he return to the earth and the spirit return it to his body.” He continued: “Then he hear sandals from the people (who deliver to the grave) when they leave, then came two very fierce angels, both of them scold you, then sat and asked: ‘Who is your Lord?’. He say: ‘my Lord is Allah Ta’ala. ” Both ask: “What is your religion? ‘. He will say: ‘My religion is Islam’. Both ask: ‘Who is the man who was sent to you?’. He will say: ‘It is the messenger of Allah (Rasulullah)’. Both ask: “What deeds? ‘. Your said: ‘I read kitabullah (Qur’an), I believe it and justify it’.
Scold of angels and their questions: “Who is your Lord? What is your religion? Who is your Prophet?’. This is the last test that tested to the believers. That is when Allah said: “Allah keeps firm those who believe, with the firm word, in worldly life and in the Hereafter. And Allah sends astray the wrongdoers. And Allah does what He wills. “ (Ibrahim : 27). So he can say: ‘my Lord is Allah, my religion Islam and Prophet is Muhammad sallallaahu’ alaihi wa Sallam ‘. Then come the voice from heaven: ‘My servant is true, then stretch her tapestry of Heaven, give him clothes from Paradise and dress him, and open (for him) the door to Heaven’. Rasulullah sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: “The fragrance and goodness of Heaven come and grave cleared as far as the eye can see”.
Rasulullah sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: “Then come (in another narration: embodiment) a handsome man in a nice dressed and fragrant. The man said, ‘I give you tidings of good news, I bring you tidings of bless from Allah Ta’ala and Heaven which has an eternal delight. This is a day that promised ‘. He said: ‘And you, may Allah Ta’ala makes you happy with kindness. Who are you? Your face is a face that comes with the good. ” The man said: ‘I am your good deeds. For the sake of Allah, I didn’t know you unless you perceived the haste of obedience to Allah and slow to do sin to Him. May Allah Ta’ala reply you with kindness’.
Then the door opened for him, the doors of Heaven and Hell, and said to him: ‘This (Hell) is a return, if you disobedience to Allah, (and) Allah Ta’ala replace it with Heaven’. Then when he see the contents of the Heaven he said: ‘O Allah Hasten the Day of Resurrection so that I may return to the family and my wealth’. It will be said to him: ‘Wait’. ”
