Believer's Fearlessness in the Grave and Presentation of Heaven to Him

Hadrat Abu Hurairah (Allah be pleased with him) reports the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) to have said:

"When a dead body is placed in the grave he is made to sit without fear and the following questions are put to him:

"What was your deen (in the world)?" He replies, "I had embraced Islam." He is then asked, "Who is he (according to your Faith)?" He replies, "He is Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of  Allah be upon him), He came to us with open miracles and we affirmed them." He is asked again, "Have you  seen Allah?" He replies, "Nobody can see Allah (how could then I see?)"

Thereafter,ventilator is opened towards the Hell and he looks at the Hell and finds that burning flames are eating each other. After that he is told how Allah saved him from the torment of fire. Then a ventilator is opened which brings the Heaven to sight and he looks at the Heaven. Thereupon he is told that this Heaven is his abode  because he remained alive on Faith and died on the same Faith and Allah willing, he will be raised from the  grave on the Day of Resurrection on the same Faith. The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

"The unbelieving person, when made to sit, looks embarrassed in his grave. He is then asked, "Which deen did  you follow?" He replies, "I don't know." Thereafter he is asked about the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) : "Who is he (according to your faith)?" He replies, "I have to say what others  have said." Following this he is shown the Heaven and looks at the Blessings and Favours of Almighty Allah.  After that he is said, "you are deprived of all of these because of your disobedience to Allah. Thereafter a  ventilator towards the Hell is opened and when he sees terrifying flames eating each other he will be told, "This  is your abode, because you lived on doubt, died on doubt and Allah willing, you will be raised from your grave  on the same belief."
