Do people meet their relatives who passed on after they pass away?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q. My mother passed away. The only person my brother and I had was my mother. We cannot eat, drink and sleep properly since she passed away. Will we meet our mother after we die?

A. After the demise of a person, the soul of a person meets other souls of people who passed away before him/her. (Fataawa Mahmoodiyyah 1/613) Thus, the same would apply to meeting ones family and relatives after ones demise.

We make Dua to Allah to ease your grief and unite you with your family in Jannah. Ameen.

Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
