Question

Assalaam alaikum. pliz i would like to
know if it is true that every human will
be squeezed by land in the grave except
the prophets.

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord
of the Worlds. I testify that there is
none worthy of worship except Allah,
and that Muhammad is His slave
and Messenger.

It is confirmed in an authentic
narration that when Sa’d ibn Mu’aath,
may Allah be pleased with him, was
buried, the grave squeezed him once,
and then the Prophet said: “Had
anyone escaped from the squeeze of the
grave, it would have been Sa’d ibn
Mu’aath as he was squeezed once and
then his grave was expanded.”

Some scholars explained the squeeze of
the earth in the grave by saying that we
are created from it (clay) and it is like
our mother. We were absent from it for
a very long time, and so, when we
return to it, we are cuddled by it in the
same manner a mother cuddles her son
after a long absence. Hence, whoever is
obedient to Allah, the earth will squeeze
him in a soft manner, and whoever is
disobedient, the earth will squeeze him
in a violent and brutal manner as a way
of being discontent with him due to the
Wrath of Allah on that person.

The scholars stated that the
Prophets, may Allah exalt their
mention, are not squeezed by the earth
in their graves when they are buried,
because they are infallible and because
of their great status with Allah. They
are also different from other people as
their bodies are not decayed in their
graves.

Allah Knows best.
