7 Bad Habits That Get You Killed In The Grave
Death is unavoidable for all living breathing beings, but how does it happen?
The pleasures gained or the punishment of the grave? Everything hinges on one’s actions
throughout one’s life. Grave punishment, also known as Adhaab of Qabr in Islam,
is a punishment meted out by Allah SWT to those who have died as a result of doing
prohibited things during their lifetime. Allah SWT will not punish His servant who
follows all orders and avoids all prohibitions with the punishment of the grave.
Those who sin and refuse to obey Allah’s commands, on the other hand, will face the
punishment of the grave. The reason for the grave punishment is frequently forgotten
and even undervalued, so the reason is usually carried out.
As Muslims, we must therefore understand the reasons for the grave’s punishment.
The following are the reasons for the grave’s punishment and the punishment that will
be meted out to those who disobey it: Contents Table of Contents
Many people lie in their daily lives, and while lying can be beneficial at times, it is still a sin.
People who lie will be tortured in the grave for the rest of their lives;
their mouths, noses, and eyes will be ripped out with sharp
hooks at the back of their heads regularly.
2. Neglecting Salah
They’d be spread out on the ground, with a man on top holding a large rock.
The man will hurl the rock at those who fail to perform salah regularly until
their heads are crushed. The man would then pick up the rock and hurl it at their
restored heads, causing them to crumble once more.

Zina is an Arabic term for fornication and adultery, in which a man engages in sexual activity
with a woman with whom he is not legally married. This is true regardless of whether or not the
parties involved are married. In English, on the other hand, fornication is used when one of the
parties is a single person, whereas adultery is used when one of the parties is a married person.
In other words, if a couple engages in Zina, one of them will be charged with fornication,
while the other will be charged with adultery.
Adultery, or Zina, is a sin that Allah despises. Some people continue to commit adultery,
such as having an affair. Zina can torture the dead indefinitely.
Men and women who commit Zina (adultery) will be thrown naked into a baking
the pit-shaped hole that is narrow at the top and wide at the bottom.
A raging fire burns beneath the pit, and every time it flares up,
they scream and jump up, almost falling out. They returned once the storm had
passed (to the bottom).
4. Riba (Interest)
Riba is the taking of essential assets for the sake of vanity.
This act is one of the causes of the grave’s punishment for sin. Riba is frequently performed
in terms of debts. A person who practices usury during his lifetime will find himself
swimming in rivers of blood, with a man standing on the river’s bank throwing stones
at him whenever he tries to get out. A rock would be thrown into the man’s mouth,
causing him to fall back into the river. Every time he tried to get out of the river of blood,
it happened again.
Arrogance is one of Allah Azza Wa Jalla’s most despised characteristics because it is the
behavior of the devil. Humans acting arrogantly are no different than the devil,
whom God curses for being arrogant. Those who walk by dragging their lower garments
out of pride will be swallowed by the earth, and their bodies will slowly sink into the
earth until the Day of Resurrection.
The failure to keep oneself from peeing is a major sign that leads to grave punishment.
Although the punishment for those who do not clean themselves of urine is not specified,
it is stated in the hadith that “most of the torments of the grave are caused by
urine” (H.R. Ahmad) As a result, we must keep ourselves free of urine and clean
ourselves properly at all times, especially before praying; ensure that our clothes
are clean and not soiled with urine.
A person who is a kafir or a hypocrite is one of the most despicable acts that will
result in grave punishment.
Various grave torments will await them including furniture from Hell being prepared for them
a Hell door being opened for them their graves being narrowed and them being struck with a large hammer with tremendous power, which will turn a mountain to dust when struck. They will be told of the torment that awaits them in the Afterlife even in the grave, and they will hope that that time will never come.
