1. According to hadiths, the believer who is able to answer the three questions from the angels sent to the grave for questioning will be given a garden from paradise and will have a pleasant experience inside the grave. Based on this alone, would the person experiencing this still have anxiety on the day of judgement?
2. Would this blessing of the grave already give them an indication as to how their fate will be decided? Does being blessed in the grave and the lack of punishment mean that the fate has already been decided by Allah Ta’ala?
1. According to the level of his istiqaamat and firmness, Allah Ta`ala grants him serenity, peace and composure.
2. Yes. The grave is like the passport and visa. If the visa and passport are right then you get to know of this from the time the soul is departing.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
