Is the soul aware of what is happening after death?

Q: My father died 2 days ago, he was not really a pious man. He died because the required doctor didn't reach on time to treat him. My father is in Sudan. I have 2 questions,

1. Does the soul of my father know what he is going through after his burial?

2. Will Allah reward him because he died because of negligence of the doctor?


1. Obviously.

2. For patience and perseverance there is a magnificent reward.

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