stages of the hereafter according to islam

We are here with a very useful content for our readers who are curious about the stages of the hereafter. Here are some things to know about the hereafter and their explanations with hadiths .

When people are sent to the world, people live in a time period determined for them and then they die. Man does not mingle and die after death.

Rather, it is taken into account to account for all the work it does in the world. We call this “ account day ”. On the day of the account, the balance (scale) is established and everything but everything that people do is weighed in this infallible balance and given to it.

There are stages of the hereafter. In other words, he does not enter heaven or hell right after he dies. After passing through some stages, it becomes clear where it will arrive. The stages of the afterlife are as follows;


On the Day of Resurrection, after people are resurrected, they account for every work they do while in the world . This is called “sash.” The verses and hadiths related to Haşir are as follows;

“On the Day of Resurrection, people will gather in a place like white, white, pure flour. Nobody will have a sign (house, vineyard, etc.) there.”

Bukhari, Rikak 44; Muslim, Münafikun 28, (2790).

Hasir square is a place like the flour flour with the term of hadith sharif. So this is a flat area and nobody has any shelter here, where people account for what they do in the world.

Haşir verse:

“When people are restored (brought together), they are enemies (they worship other than Allah) and do not recognize them from worshiping them. (Ahqaf 6)

In this verse, again, Allah (swt) will point to the people who do evil by talking about people’s accountability about what they do in the world. Because here the provision will only belong to Allah (swt).


Another phase of the hereafter is the apocalypse. Mahşer is the square from which the humor was established. Every person who comes to life comes here. In other words, those who died when they were babies came here, and those who died when they were old came here and account for it.

Hadith related to Mahşer:

“On the Day of Resurrection, people are barefoot, streaked, foamy and saggy, sweaty, sweaty, and thrown in their throats, like a gem.” He said. Hz. Sevde says: On this I am

“O Messenger of Allah! Alas! What a misfortune; people will look at each other’s shame.” I said. Hz. Prophet (pbuh)

“No! People – that day – are too busy to see them.” He said, “That day, each person from them has enough work and trouble.”

As it is understood from this hadith, people will be naked while gathering in the aphorism, and people will not even look at each other but even see each other. Because it is the place where the apocalypse, the balance of the balance is set up, and it is so horrifying that the mother will escape from her son, her father. Everyone will worry about saving themselves.

The verse about Mahşer:

“When that noise-making / apocalyptic day comes, the person will escape from his brother, mother, father, wife and sons / children. That day, each person has enough work and trouble. it is brilliant, smiling and joyful. And there are some faces that day, it is dusty, the darkness has fallen on them. These are the disbelievers and those who have gone astray. ” (Abese, 80 / 34-42)

There is a section in this verse that supports the hadith, and it is mentioned that people will run away from each other in the apostate. The verse mentions two different sections. These are the first section “those with bright faces”; While living in the world, those who live life as commanded by Allah (cc) are people who escape from what they say “do not” that does what God says “do”. On the day of the apocalypse, they will come to the apocalypse with bright faces and joy. The second section is “people whose faces are dusty and covered by darkness”. These are people who do not heed the orders and prohibitions of Allah while they are in the world and do not believe in the future of the Day of Judgment. In the verse, these people are referred to as “infidels”.

Trial balance

While continuing to explain the stages of the hereafter in verses and hadiths, we move on to another stage, the “trial” stage. Trial balance is a symbolic scale and its charity and sherry is without any loss. Although it is a scale that weighs to what extent the orders and prohibitions of Allah (cc) are fulfilled, no one knows exactly how the balance is the balance.

The hadith related to trial trial:

According to the Judge, our Prophet (saas) says:

“Doomsday Mizan is established. Even heaven and earth can attract them. The angels ask, “O Lord, who will deem this will work?”

Allah replies to his angels as follows; “Which of my servants do I want to be treated?” He replies. Then the angels say, “O Allah, who has been in all sorts of shortcomings, we have not worshiped you properly.”

As it is understood from this hadith sharif, the trial balance is a sensitive scale that does not leave anyone’s right to jot. So much so that it is a strong and sensitive scale that can weigh them even if there is a place with heavens on it.

The verse about trial trial:

“We set up scales of justice for the Day of Judgment. No injustice is ever made to anyone. We bring it to the (justice scale) even if it is as much as a mustard grain. As the accountant, we (everyone) is enough. ”(Surat al-Enbi, verse 47)

“Whose (reward) scales outweigh those who are the real liberators. Whom their scales are light, they have also pityed themselves. (Because they are) in eternal hell. ” (Surah of the believer, 102-103)

Amel Notebook

The book of deeds is the notebook recorded by the angels called “tenant clerk” for everything people do while they are in the world. When the accounts are compromised, the deeds are given to some people from the right, some to the left, some to the front and some to the back. But there is no deficiency in this book of deeds.

Hadith related to the deeds:

“What makes a good job earns reward as much as those who do it, either in life or after death. The sin of this is written, even if it leads the bad business, until it is abandoned. ” [Taberani]

Verse about deeds:

“Wow, how did this book to us, small and big, counting and pouring everything we did without leaving anything” (Surat al-Kehf, 49)

As it is understood from the verse, nothing is left in the book of deeds. In other words, whoever worked badly and whoever worked badly, everything is written in the book of deeds as it is and is brought before the person on the Day of Resurrection.

Sırat Bridge

After the calculations are given, people cross the Sırat Bridge, which is between Heaven and Hell. Those who are heavenly pass through the bridge and enter the promised paradise. On the other hand, the Hells fall from the Sırat Bridge, which has fires underneath, and enter hell.

Hadith on the Bridge of Sirat:

Hazrat Enes (ra) recounts: “O Messenger of Allah! Intercesse me on the Day of Judgment! ” I said to our Prophet (pbuh): “I will do it!” They said again: “Where can I call you and find you?” I said, “Call me when you call me first!” They said, “If I can’t meet you (there)?” I said, “Call me next to Mizan!” They said, “If I can’t meet you there?” I said, “Call me next to the basin! Because I do not go beyond three positions! ” decreed. (Tirmidhi, Apocalypse)

Verse about Sırat Bridge:

“Show us the right path, the path of those whom you give blessings to…” (Fatiha- 6-7)


Another of the stages of the hereafter is intercession. After all the accounts have been given, those who have some sins although they are believers will intercede to those who are permitted by Allah (swt). The intercessors are only the Prophet and the martyrs. Other than that, nobody can intercede to anyone.

Hadith related to intercession:

“My intercession is for those who have sinned more than my community.” (Tirmidhi “Sıfatü’l-Kıyame” 2359)

What is to be understood from this hadith is not people who are in sin swamp. They are the ones who have some mistakes and are really sincere even though they are believers.

Verse about Intercession:

“(They) do not intercede to anyone else who has attained the consent of Allah.” (Surat al-Enbi, 28)

In this verse, there is a situation that affirms the hadith. In other words, no one will be intercessed, except that Allah has given them intercession.


After calculating on the Day of Judgment about what people do in the world, their destination will be determined. If a person lived in the world as Allah wanted and struggled to gain His (cc) consent, he would enter heaven. Paradise is a place where there is much more than the blessings given in the world and it is a place to stay forever.

Hadith about heaven:

“There are some people who will enter heaven, their hearts are like a bird’s heart (as opposed to rakik and be thankful).” (Muslim, Paradise 27)

The verse about heaven:

“There is more beauty and more to the beauty makers. Neither blackness nor brutality surround their faces, they are the people of heaven; they will stay there indefinitely. ” (Yusuf-26)


While in the world, hell is the place where people who do not comply with Allah’s orders and prohibitions, who partner with God, rebel against Allah and do not fulfill their servant responsibilities. Hell is a place where there is such torment that pain cannot be described with any pain in the world, and pain is not eternal.

Hadith about hell:

“The hellfire was lit for a thousand years. So that it turned red. Then it was burned for another thousand years, so that it became white. Then it was burned for another thousand years. Now it is black and dark.” (Tirmidhi, Hell)

It is pointed out how bad Hell is in the hadith sheriff and gives information about the fire of hell.

Verse about Hell:

“The truth is, whoever comes to his Lord as a criminal-sinner, there is no doubt, there is hell for him. In him, neither can he die, nor can he be resurrected.” (Taha-74)
