166. TORMENT BEGINS IMMEDIATELY AFTER DEATH

 There are several ‘sayings’ of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) which revealed that the sinners would be tormented and good people would be rejoicing in the world of souls i.e., in the graves, after death. Muslims also believe in it.

 But certain people refute the above view for the reason that nothing has been said in Quran regarding the dwelling in graves known as ‘Qabr’ and of the torment that would found therein.

Even though there are not found any verses in Quran regarding the torment in the Qabr (grave) directly, there are found certain other verses in the Quran which imply such ideas. This is one such verse.

In this verse 6:93 Allah says that the Angels would say “This day you are awarded doom of degradation”, while gathering the lives (souls) of the wrong-doers

Actually disgraceful punishment known as Hell would be inflicted upon them only when this world was destroyed, when the Day of Judgment occurred and when they were enquired therein after several thousand years ever since their souls (lives) were gathered.

But this verse reveals that the Angels would say ‘this day you taste the torment’ while gathering the souls (lives) of the wrong-doers. That is, the torment begins at the very moment when the souls (lives) are gathered.

As an elucidation Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) has said, there is torment in Qabr(grave). It would not contradict Quran.
