As for the hypocrite and the doubter then he will say if it is said to him “Who is your Lord?”

He will say “I do not know.”

“Who is you Prophet?”

He will say, “I do not know.”

“What is your Religion?”

He will say “I do not know.”

Even if, in this world, he was a learned person and he memorised texts and explanations and he memorised the language and he was a most eloquent speaker and a fine talker. But if he did not have Imaan (true faith), then he will stammer in the grave and he will be unable to answer. When he is asked about these matters he will stutter and say, “Hah, Hah, I do not know, I heard the people saying something, so therefore I said it.”

So a door will be opened to the Fire for him and his grave will be made tight upon him until his ribs intertwine (cross over). And its fierce wind and heat come upon him and bedding from the Fire will be laid out for him.
[For the full hadith refer Abu Dawood, 4753; Ahmad, 18063 (Classed as sahih by al-Albaani)]
Prophet ﷺ said:
_“Seek refuge with Allaah from four things: from the punishment of Hell Fire and from the punishment of the grave and from the trials of life and death and from the trial of al-Maseehud-Dajjaal (the false Messiah)._
[Bukhari 1311, Muslim 589]
These narrations should wake us up and make us reflect about whether we are upon the straight path or not.
Ya Ibn Adam! Are you ready to face this as you are now?
What then, keeps you from striving to prepare?
