Wa alaykum salaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,
In the Name of Allah, Most Merciful and Compassionate
I pray that you are well, and in the best of health and spirits. May Allah grant you all good in this life and the next.
It is mentioned in a hadith,
‘When Ramadhan comes, the gates of paradise are opened, the gates of hellfire are locked and the devils are shackled.”(Bukhari)
We can deduce from this Hadith that the one who passes away in Ramadhan, will be safeguarded from punishment by the grace of almighty Allah. (fatawa mahmudiyyah 1/630) (ahsanul fatawa 4/208)
Imam Ahmed narrates in his compilation of Hadith that the messenger of Allah (sallahu alaihi wasallam) said, ’Whoever professes La ilaha illah (there is no god besides Allah) seeking the pleasure of Allah and happens to pass away in that state, he will enter paradise. Whoever fasts a day seeking the pleasure of Allah and happens to pass away in that state, he will enter paradise.’
A person who passes away in the state of fasting will enter paradise. (fatawa mahmudiyyah 1/631)
With regards to meeting one’s predecessors after death,if one is amongst the fortunate ones and successfully answers the questioning in the grave, he will get to meet whom he wants. (fatawa mahmudiyyah 1/612)
A Hadith states that when a person passes away, he meets the souls of the believers and discusses the affairs of the living. (Nasai Hadith no.1834)
And Allah knows best.
