Does the Prophet sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam come to the Dead?
Question:

Does the Prophet sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam himself come to the dead, or does his image come to them?
Answer:

The coming of the Prophet sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam or anyone else who has gone to his Lord is from among the matters of the unseen which are known to none except what has been established by the Revelation and conveyed to His creatures. Therefore it is not for anyone to go into the subject of the unseen except in accordance with a revealed text (i.e. from the Qur’aan or the Sunnah) – and there is no evidence in the Qur’aan or the Hadith that he sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam comes to the dead, neither personally nor through his image. He will only assemble with the people on the Day of Resurrection, when they ask him to intercede for them with their Lord, in order to remove them from their situation, among other things which it is reported are especially for him on the Day of Resurrection, And Allaah is the Granter of success.
