What happens with a muslim who`s soul has passed away to meet Azrain(Death Angel)? What happens then?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

The angel of death extracts the soul of a person with the order of Allah Ta’
ala. If the person was a Muslim and obedient, his soul is extracted with
ease and if he was a non-Muslim or a sinful Muslim, his soul is extracted
with extreme pain.

The soul of an obedient Muslim is wrapped with honour by the angels
accompanying the angel of death and his soul is taken to the heaven through
each sky. The angels of every sky praise and welcome the soul and upon
reaching the seventh sky, Allah Ta’ala orders the angels to place the soul
to rest in Illiyyeen (a sacred place above). The soul of a disbelieving or
sinful person is thrown into a sack and upon reaching the first sky, the
angels reject him and it is ordered that his soul be dumped into the Sijjeen
(a prison underground). May Allah Ta’ala grant our souls peace and honour
upon our death, Aameen.

and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
