Punishment starting from the grave

Q: The burning from the ankles, knees, waist, etc., will it start from the grave or will it be delayed till the Day of Judgmant?

A: Punishment of a criminal starts from death. It continues into the grave and thereafter into the hereafter.

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