Soul visiting the home after a person dies

Q: I want to know a thing that many people say that when anyone dies than his/her soul comes to the home for 40 days and after 40 days he/her will never come home. Is it right or wrong, if yes then tell me how and why?

A: This has no basis.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
