Being buried next to a sinful person


1- In some Kitaabs stories are mentioned of pious people getting buried next to sinful people due to the punishment on the sinful it has effected the pious in the grave and caused the pious to get old and have white hair etc, is it proven from Quran and ahadith that burying a pious person next to a sinful person will harm the pious person in any way?

2- Is it proven from Quran and ahadith that a person who has passed away feels and knows when he is bathed, shrouded etc and who is doing it?


1. Don't pay attention to this. After all, the company of the pious in this world and the next is a desirable thing. Work towards that and have a deep love and liking for the righteous and pious and Allah will take care of you insha-Allah. Dreams are sometimes just guesswork and sometimes they are incorrectly reported. Hence you are not supposed to be paying attention to this type of matters.

2. Allah willing, he may have this information.

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