Haani the freed slave of Uthmaan Ibn Affaan (radhiAllaahu anhu) said: “Uthmaan would stand near a grave and weep until his beard became wet, it was said to him, “Whenever Paradise is mentioned in front of you, you do not weep; and when the Fire is mentioned in front of you, you do not weep; but when the grave is mentioned in front of you, you weep.

When he was questioned regarding this, he would reply: “I heard the Messenger of Allaah (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) say:

Verily the grave is the first station of the Aakhirah (Hereafter).

So if a person finds goodness in the grave, then everything after it will be even better.

And if a person finds evil in the grave – refuge from Allaah is sought – then everything a person will face after the abode of the grave will only be more evil.

The Messenger of Allaah (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) would also say:

I have never seen anything, except the grave is more severe than it.

 

إن القبر أول منازل الآخرةت

المرجع: رواه الترمذي ( 2308 ) وابن ماجه ( 4567 )

عن هانئ مولى عثمان بن عفان قال :

كان عثمان بن عفان إذا وقف على قبر بكى حتى يبل لحيته فيقال له : قد تَذكر الجنَّةَ والنَّار فلا تبكي وتبكي مِن هذا ؟ فيقول : إن رسول الله  صلى الله عليه وسلم قال :

إن القبر أول منازل الآخرة فإن نجا منه فما بعده أيسر منه وإن لم ينج منه فما بعده أشد منه

 وقال رسول الله  صلى الله عليه وسلم

ما رأيت منظرا إلا والقبر أفظع منه:
