Belief in the final day

In the name of Allah, the Compasionate, the Merciful

the servant of Uthman, Radi Allahu Anhu, recalls, "Whenever Uthman (RAA) would stand over a grave he used to cry, his beard would moisten from the tears.  Some would ask him, 'When Heaven and Hell are mentioned you do not cry, but when the graveis mentioned you collapse crying, how come?'  He (RAA) would say: I hear the Prophet (SAAS) say, 'the grave is the first stage of the Hereafter, whoever passes it will be at ease after it, and if he does not pass it he will be in the most horrific of conditions.'  I also heard him say, 'Never have I seen a sight more horrifying than the graveyard.'In the hadith of Jibraeel, when he came to the Prophet (SAAS) and asked him about Islam, Eeman, and Ihsan, the Prophet (SAAS) said about Eeman,
"Eeman is to believe in Allah, His Angels, His books, His Messengers, the Final Day, and divine decree, the good and the bad thereof." 

Today we shall talk about the Final Day.  It has been asked,"when shall the Final food, drink, and abode was, they pleaded,"Who will tell our brothers about us, that we are alive in Paradise and being amply provided for, so that they will not turn away from Jihad or abandon the battlefields.  Allah ta'ala said: "I shall tell them!"  The verse was then sent down: [Think not of those who are killed in the Way of Allah as dead, Nay, they are alive with their Lord, provided for/ They rejoice in what Allah has best owed upon them of His Bounty, rejoicing for the sake of those who havenot yet joined them (i.e. not yet martyred) that on them no fear shall come, nor shall they grieve.]   - Aali Imran 3/169-170Let us sit and listen to a one of the Ansar men.  When we reached the grave - before the man was buried - the Prophet (SAAS) sat down (facing the Qiblah)and we sat down encircling him.  We sat still as if birds were on our heads, silent.  The Prophet (SAAS) had a stick in his hand with which he would scratch up the sand.  [He gazed at the sky and then down to the ground, repeating this three times]  Then he said,"Seek the protection of Allah from the punishment of the Prophet (SAAS) had a stick in his hand with which he would scratch up the sand.  [He gazed at the sky and then down to the ground, repeating this three times]  Then he said,"Seek the protection of Allah from the punishment of the them one of the shourds of Paradise and Hanoot. 
They sit down around him as far as the eye can see. Then the Angel of Death comes and sits by his head and pronounces, 'Oblessed soul, come out to the forgiveness and pleasure of Allah.'  The soul will then come out like a drop of water coming out of the mouth of a waterskin.  And the Angel of Death will take it.  [Until his soul comes out, every angel between the heavens and earth will soul, the (other angels) do not leave it in his hand for a moment; immediatly they take it and wrap in the shroud and scent it with Hanoot. 

This is the meaning of Allah's words: [...When death approaches any of you, Our Angels take his soul, and they never fail in their duty.]- An'am 6/61 At that moment a scent shall emerge fromthe soul, a scent not unlike the finest musk found on earth.  They shall take the soul up so-and-so' using the best names that they were addressed with in this world. (They shall go on) until they reach the first heaven.  They shall ask for it to be opened and it shall open for them.  In each heaven, those registered in Illiyun. 
Then Allah (SWT) will say, 'Take him back to the earth for this was my promise: I created them from it, I shall return them to it, and I will resurrect them from it again.He will be taken back to the earth, and his soul will be returned to his body.  [And he will hear the footsteps of his companions as they leave him.]  Two stern Angels will come to him, [rebuke him] and sit him among you?' He will say, 'He is the Messenger of Allah (SAAS).'Yu Thabbitul Allahu al ladheena Aamanu bil Qawl ath-thabiti fil Hayatid Dunya wa fil AakhirahA voice will call from Heaven, 'My slave has Allah reward you with good.'Then a gate of Paradiseand a gate of Hell will open for him.  And it willbe said, 'this is your place if you had disobeyed Allah, but Allah has fiven you this instead of that.'  When the Angel of Death comes and sits at his head and says, ' Come out O evil soul to the anger and wrath of Allah!'

The soul will be draggedout of his body with as much difficulty as a many-pronged skewer like the foulest stench of dead flesh ever experienced on earth.  They will take the soul up and whenever they take it past a group of angels, they will say, 'Who is this evil soul?'  They shall say, 'It is so-and-so, son of so-and-so,' using the worst names he was addressed with on earth. (They will go on) until they reach the first heaven; they will ask for it to be opened for
