Do dead people feel everything in their graves, and is the punishment and bliss of grave on the soul or on the body?

In the case of death, the body remains in the ground while the soul is in the interspace between the two worlds. An ‘interspace’is something which separates two things: heaven and earth, or this world and the Next World. In other words, it is the period between death and resurrection.

An ‘interspace’is something which separates two things: heaven and earth, or this world and the Next World. In other words, it is the period between death and resurrection. The bliss or punishment of the Interspace is not the same as the bliss and punishment of the Next World. It is something that happens between this world and the Next World. Despite the fact that the soul is in the interspace between the two worlds and the body is inside the earth, the’ two are still connected. Consequently, the bliss or punishment happens to both of them. We have likened this condition to the sleeping state, but naturally there is a distinction


In sleep, the soul subsists fundamentally in the body. It emerges as something like a ray to the heavens ·so that the sleeper has a dream in which he feels either happy or miserable. He experiences either bliss or punishment in his sleep. In death, the soul subsists fundamentally in the Interspace, not in the body. When Allah the Great desires bliss or punishment for the soul, He connects it to the body. It is in Heaven, but at the same time it looks at and is connected to the body in the ground



the mind does not change at death, but that only the body and limbs change. Thus, the dead man has intelligence and is able to perceive and know the varieties of pain and pleasure, nothing in his mind having been transformed.
Update: For the percipient mind does not consist of these members of ours; rather it is a thing concealed, without length or breadth . The faculty which perceives things consists of every part of one which does not rot away; and were a man’s every limb to be scattered abroad leaving nothing but the percipient part, which... show more For the percipient mind does not consist of these members of ours; rather it is a thing concealed, without length or breadth . The faculty which perceives things consists of every part of one which does not rot away; and were a man’s every limb to be scattered abroad leaving nothing but the percipient part, which can neither be dissolved or divided, then that man would be whole and would still exist and continue.
Update 2: So it is after death: for this part is not invaded by death and cannot be liable to extinction
