Answer

(Fatwa: 353/186/D=1432)

(1) A deceased person gets benefit if he is buried beside the grave of a pious person but its condition and quantity is not known.
(2) The soul sees whatever happens with the dead body like bath and coffin etc before burial and remains in the hold of angels and enters into the body after burial. (Sharh al-Sudur by Suyuti, p. 39) It is not proved from any authentic hadith that the soul ever comes home and sees the activity of family members. (Fatawa Mahmoodia, Vol. 1, p. 605
