Death with love / hatred towards Ahlebait(as)

Imam Baqir(as) said:
The one who dies and has hatred towards Us Ahlebait(as) in his heart and the one who befriends Our i.e. Ahlebait(as) enemies, Allah(swt) will not accept any of his deeds.

Regarding the Almighty’s words in Sura-e-Baqara, Verse 28:

كيف تكفرون بالله و كنتم امواتا فاحياكم ثم يميتكم ثم يحييكم ثم اليه ترجعون

How do you deny Allah and you were dead and He gave you life? Again He will cause you to die and again bring you to life, then you shall be brought back to Him.

Imam Abu Muhammad Hasan Askari (s.a.w.s.) narrates from the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) who said:

Then He will make you die in this world. And those who believe in the Messengership of Muhammad and Wilayat (Imamate) of Ali will get peace and rest in their graves through divine bounties and those who deny the two matters, will be entangled in the punishment of Allah in their graves.

Then in the Hereafter you will be made to turn towards Him, in such a way that after remaining alive in your graves, you will be killed. Thereafter, on Judgment Day, you will become alive and rise up; and if you have obeyed divine commandments in the world, as its reward, you will be granted things which were promised to you and if you had indulged in sins, you will be surrounded by divine punishment. 

Someone from the audience asked: O Allah’s Messenger! Will there be reward and punishment in the grave also? 

His Eminence replied: Yes, by one Who sent Muhammad, making him His true messenger; and pious, clean, guide and guided; has also made his brother, Ali, a fulfiller of promises, full of truth, selected one, who hastens to Jihad, one who always is in accordance with the wish of Allah, the possessor of all moral virtues, winner against enemies of truth with the help of Allah, knower of all sciences, friend of His friends, enemy of His enemies, doer of all good deeds, discarder of all bad things and deeds, disgracer of satan, defeater of all rebels and evildoers and the self of Muhammad and his shield in times of difficulties. 

I and my brother Ali Ibne Abi Talib (a.s.) who is the servant of the Lord of the lords, and higher than all intelligent and wise persons and excellent in the knowledge of Holy Quran and the most beloved of Allah after Muhammad, both of us, have faith in the truth that one gets bounties in the grave and Almighty Allah grants much pleasure to His friends and also there is punishment in the grave, whereby He chastises His enemies and multiplies the harshness of that punishment. It is so, because one who is a faithful believer and who befriends Muhammad and his progeny and who considers him, after Muhammad, his leader and Imam and behaves like him and testifies his (Ali’s) words as his Imam and regards Ali’s deeds as desired, good and proper and who also obeys the Imams who are in the progeny of Ali (a.s.) and when the Command of Allah demanding his life, the death which no one can postpone and when the angel of death, along with his assistants arrives before him, what he sees is that Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah, is standing on one side of his head and the chief of successors, Ali (a.s.), is on the other side and at his feet, on one side is Hasan (a.s.) and on the other side is Husain (a.s.). He also observes that all around him are all the virtuous people who are leaders of the faithful, friends of the sons of the Holy Imams (a.s.). That bedridden believer looks at them and also talks with them, but Allah Almighty does not allow his voice to reach the audience just as He prevents our sight (appearance) from the eyes of the common people so that their faith in this unseen truth may multiply their reward. 

Then that faithful believer says: Messenger of Allah! May my parents be sacrificed for you and O Legatee of Messenger of mercy! May my parents be sacrificed for you and O Lions of His Eminence, Muhammad (s.a.w.s.) and his pious progeny and leaders of the youths of Paradise (Hasan and Husain)! May my parents be sacrificed on both of you. And turning towards others in the gathering around him, says: O companions and supporters of Muhammad and Ali (a.s.) and of his sons, welcome. I was extremely eager to have a look at your honors and at this moment, your arrival has given me pleasure beyond bounds. O Allah’s Messenger! This angel of death has come to capture my soul and I have not the least doubt that this angel values me, because I love you and your brother Ali (a.s.). 

Then the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.) tells the angel of death: Do as desired by the Almighty in dealing with ourselves and our lover and servant. The angel of death submits: O Allah’s Messenger! Please just ask this gentleman to raise his eyes and see the bounties readied for him in Paradise. So His Eminence (s.a.w.s.) asks that believer to raise his eyes and see for himself. Suddenly that believer is able to observe that the rewards allowed for him are beyond his imagination and innumerable. Then the angel says: How can I not be lenient to one whose reward is so fabulous and limitless and to meet whom the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) and his purified progeny arrive. Had Allah Himself not made death a hard event passing which is a must for everyone I would have never captured this believer’s soul. Therefore, the manner designed for your honor and for other Prophets and Walis will be adopted in this man’s case also because death has to be given by Almighty’s command. 

Thereafter the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) tells the angel: We entrust this our brother to you. Please deal very nicely with him. Saying so, the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.), along with aforesaid companions, returns to Paradise. Curtains are lifted up from the eyes of that believer and he sees those pious beings after their departure and tells the angel of death: O angel! Take my soul speedily and do not let me remain here, because now I cannot bear separation from the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) and his purified progeny. So please make me join them quickly. Then the angel picks up that man’s life very easily, so easily as if someone pulls out a strand of hair from a lump of kneaded flour. Though apparently, you see that he is in great trouble but in fact, he is quite at ease.

When that believer servant enters his grave, he sees all the great personalities again. When the angels, Munkir and Nakeer arrive, one of them tells the other: Since His Eminence, Muhammad, Ali, Hasan and Husain (a.s.) and their other pious personalities are present here with this gentleman, it is our duty to honor all these great personalities. So they advance and submit Salaam and Durood individually, first to the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) and thereafter to Ali (a.s.) and then to other noble souls. 

Then they say: O Allah’s Messenger! We have observed your honors’ arriving here to greet this gentleman. But had Almighty Allah not desired that all the angels here should know the excellence of this noble man and what will hereafter be heard from us, we would not have questioned him at all. But to obey the divine command is obligatory. Therefore we are obliged to ask all questions to him. Thereafter they ask that believer: Who is your Lord? What is your religion? Who is your prophet and who is your Imam? Which is your Qibla (direction in which you worship) and who is your brother-in-faith? That man replies: Almighty Allah is my Lord, Muhammad (s.a.w.s.) is my prophet, Ali (a.s.) the legatee of Muhammad (s.a.w.s.) is my Imam and the holy Kaaba is my Qibla. All those who befriend and love Muhammad and Ali (a.s.) and their friends are my brothers-in-Islam and I testify that no one except only One Allah is worthy of worship and that no one is His partner and I witness that Muhammad is His servant and messenger and that his brother, Ali, is Wali of Allah and that all from his progeny, who have been made Imams are the Ummah’s Caliphs and supporters of truth and establishers of Justice. 

After hearing all this from that believer, the interrogators (Munkir and Nakeer) tell him: Since you lived and died on this belief, you will, if Allah wills, also be raised on this belief on Judgment Day. You will rest and reside in the place of bounties with those whom you love and befriend. 

Then the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said: Then death comes to one who is the enemy of our friends and the friend of our enemies and who honors our opponents with our titles, at the moment when the angel of death approaches him, the Almighty Allah makes him see his leaders (who had led this offender wrongly and whom this sinner believed to be his gods) in such a severe punishment that even a glance at them almost kills him. The heat of the punishment in Hell, which is being meted out to those misguiders also reaches him. When it becomes unbearable for him and he wails, the angel of death addresses him: O offender, sinner, denier, infidel! You left the friends of Allah and adopted His enemies. Today none of them are able to help you the least in any way. At that moment such a severe chastisement is poured on that fellow that it would be enough to kill the whole world. Later when he is lowered in his grave, he finds a window open wherefrom he can see the bounties of Paradise. The questioner angels ask him to look at the bounties of which he has deprived himself. Thereafter a window towards Hell is also opened for him to see the punishment of Hellfire, which start entering his grave. He cries out: O Lord! Please do not establish Qiyamat (He imagines that the Day has arrived).
