Two old ladies from among the Jewish ladies entered upon me and said, "The dead are punished in their graves," but I thought they were telling a lie and did not believe them in the beginning. When they went away and the Prophet (Sal-allahu-aleihi-wasallam) entered upon me, I said, "O Allah's Apostle! (Sal-allahu-aleihi-wasallam) Two old ladies..." and told him the whole story. He said, "They told the truth; the (sinful) dead are really punished, to the extent that all the animals hear (the sound resulting from) their punishment." Since then I always saw him seeking refuge with Allah from the punishment of the grave in his prayers. [Vol 8:#377]

She asked: O Apostle of Allah (Sal-allahu-aleihi-wasallam), what shall I recite (meaning) at the visiting of graves? He said: Say, Peace be on the inmates of the abodes of the believers and Muslims, and may Allah show mercy to those who predeceased us and who will succeed us, and we shall join you, if Allah wills.

Khaled said: Sura As-Sajdah (32) will argue on behalf of its reader in the grave saying: O Allah! had I been of your Book, accept my intercession for him; and had I been not your Book. efface me from it. It will then become like a bird which will spread over its wings upon him and will intercede for him and will prevent the punishment of the grave from him. And he said about Surah Al-Mulk (67) in a similar manner. [Part of Hadith - 2176]
