Hadith on Hereafter: Allah keeps believers steadfast in the grave

Al-Bara’ ibn ‘Azib reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The verse, ‘Allah keeps firm those who have faith in the firm word,’ was revealed about the punishment in the grave. It will be said to him: Who is your Lord? He will say: Allah is my Lord and Muhammad is my prophet. That is the meaning of the words of Allah Almighty: Allah keeps firm those who have faith in the firm word, in the worldly life and in the Hereafter.” (14:27)
