Shaykh Muhammad Saalih al-Munajjid https: We believe in the punishment in the grave for those who deserve it, and in the questioning in the grave by Munkar and Nakir about one’s Lord, one’s religion and one’s prophet, as has come down in ahadith from the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, al-aqerdah in reports from the Companions, may Allah be pleased with them all.

And Allaah knows best. It was not only after the act of creation that He could be described as ‘the Creator’ nor was it only by the act of origination that He could he described as ‘the Originator’.
His angels, His books, His messengers, the Last Day, and belief that the Decree – both the good of it and the evil of it, the sweet of it and the bitter or it – is all from Allah. We believe in being brought back to life after death and in being re- compensed for our actions on the Day of Judgement, and al-‘Ard, having been shown them and al-Hisab, brought to account for them.

The al-aqeedqh nature of the decree is Allah’s secret in His creation, and no angel near the Throne, nor Prophet sent with a message, has been given knowledge of it.
He is beyond having limits placed on Him, or being restricted, or having parts or limbs. Everything happens according to Allah’s will, knowledge, predestination and decree.

And that he is the seal of the prophets and the Imam of the godfearing and the most honoured of all the messengers and the beloved of the Lord of all the Worlds.
His will overpowers all other wills and His decree overpowers all stratagems. A man’s Islam is not secure unless it is based on submission and surrender.
