Status of souls after death

I want to know that on death the soul is transferred to ‘Alam-e-Arwah’ (temporary dwelling for souls). What happens there? When we recite Qur’an for them do they get informed about it? And lastly whether they know what is happening in their home in this world?


We know very little about what happens to humans after their death except for the fact that the diehard criminals shall start getting punished and the outright successful shall getting rewarded immediately after death. We have no idea as to whether they know what’s happening in their homes. However, one thing is clear, they won’t get the benefit for anything that is recited for them after their death, because God has clearly declared: “No man shall benefit from anything except for what himself had done.”
