(Fatwa: 1029/1183/N=9/1434)

(1) If the deceased is a pious believer his rooh (soul) is treated with comfort and peace, otherwise it is inflicted with punishment and pain.
(2) In fact it is baseless; there is no evidence in the reliable sources which support it. (Ashraful Jawab, p 168, published by Umar Farooq, Shah Faisal Colony, Karachi)
