What does happen to the soul after death?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Do the soul think about what is happening to them? Could the soul of my Mother be waiting and disturbed about us? please give me the answer I am so worried.


According to the Shari’ah, once the soul (Rooh) leaves the body after death,
in the case of a believer, his Rooh is preserved in a sacred place called
Illiyyeen. In the case of non-believer, his soul is placed in the Sijjeen.

It is possible the deceased is aware of the actions and deeds of the living.
That is so if Allah wills.

and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
