Can a dead muslim feel the feelings of his close relatives after his death? i.e their sorrows, weeping, happiness and they are remembering him or not after him/her?
Is the soul of a good muslim can come in the world to know about his family.
I heard that the soul come to the place where he/she died for forty days.
Do we feel or see the souls of our close relatives? What is the reality of dreams about dead ones?
Praise be to Allaah.
person dies, he moves from this world to another realm, and his soul does
not come back to his family and they do not feel anything of him. What is
mentioned (in the question) about the soul coming back for forty days is a
myth that has no foundation. Similarly the dead person does not know
anything about the circumstances of his family, because he is absent from
them, in a state of bliss or torment. But Allaah may inform some of the dead
of some of the circumstances of their families, but this is not necessarily
so. There are some reports, which cannot be relied upon, that say that the
deceased may know something about his family’s circumstances. With regard to
dreams, some of them are true and some are the playing of the Shaytaan. The
living may come to know something of the circumstances of the dead via true
dreams, but that depends on the sincerity of the one who sees the dream,
whether the dream is a true dream and the ability of the one who interprets
these dreams. Yet despite that we should not be certain of what the dream
says, unless there is some evidence to indicate that. For a living person
may see his deceased relative in a dream, advising him to do things or
saying some things to him which he may know are true if they match reality.
There have been some cases in which dreams matched reality and others where
there is no evidence to suggest that the dreams are true. And some dreams
are known to be untrue. So dreams are of three types. We must pay attention
to that when dealing with news, reports and stories that have to do with the
circumstances of the dead.
