Punishment of the grave and delicious Grave, There or Not?

Question From:

Bapak Muh. Saifuddin,

There are religious leaders who say, that the punishment of the grave and tomb no favors. This statement is different from my belief all along, that the pleasure and torment of the grave was there. Based on this fact, what the appropriate arguments to reject suggestions made hujjah these religious leaders?


According to the hadeeth narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim, mentioned that in the grave later, people will be given a cue to the results of his deeds in the world and its results. The good will get the heaven and the wicked will be the Fire. Hadith referred to reads:


إِنَّ أَحَدَكُمْ إِذَا مَاتَ عُرِضَ عَلَيْهِ مَقْعَدُهُ بِالْغَدَاةِ وَالْعَشِيِّ إِنْ كَانَ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ فَمِنْ أَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ وَإِنْ كَانَ مِنْ أَهْلِ النَّارِ فَمِنْ أَهْلِ النَّارِ فَيُقَالُ هَذَا مَقْعَدُكَ حَتَّى يَبْعَثَكَ اللَّهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ[رواه البخاري ومسلم]


It means: "Verily, when the death of one of you, then dinampakkan to him every morning and evening, where he lives. If it includes expert heaven, then sorgalah place. And if he is an expert hell, then hell where he lives. Then it says: "This is where you live, until then you resurrected on the Day of Resurrection." [Hadith History of al-Bukhari and Muslim from Ibn 'Umar]

With the demonstrated good results that will be given later, is a pleasure. Conversely, when shown a result that will be given to someone who does evil, a punishment or chastisement.

In addition, also found a history which mentions the punishment of the grave, such as the hadeeth narrated from Ibn Abbas, when the Messenger of Allah passed by two graves, he said:


إِنَّهُمَا لاَ يُعَذَّبَانِ فِي كَبِيرٍ أَمَّا أَحَدُهُمَا فَكَانَ لَا يَسْتَبْرِئُ مِنْ اْلبَوْلِ وَأَمَّا الْآخَرُ فَكَانَ يَمْشِي فِي النَّمِيمَةِ ثُمَّ دَعَا بِجَرِيدَةٍ رَطْبَةٍ فَشَقَّهَا نِصْفَيْنِ فَقَالَ لَعَلَّهُمَا خَفَّفَ عَنْهُمَا مَا لَمْ يَيْبَسَا [رواه البخاري ومسلم]


It means: "Verily, they are not tortured grave, because of the large. One of them was tortured because they do not clean from urine, and the other one because like the pit. Then the Prophet asked to be taken midrib dates and split it into two, as he said: "Hopefully their ease during both dry yet." [Hadith History of al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Regarding the punishment of the grave for those who commit sin, it is not in doubt, remember the Prophet's guidance is always read at the time of prayer (prayer after tahiyyat end), the contents of which begged the protection of four things: the torment of Inferno, from the torment of the grave, from defamation of life and slander die, and begged protection from defamation Antichrist. This basis, among others narrated by Muslim.
