يَوْمَئِذٍ يَتّبِعُونَ الدّاعِيَ لَا عِوَجَ لَهُ وَخَشَعَتِ الْأَصْوَاتُ لِلرّحْمنِ فَلَا تَسْمَعُ إِلا هَمْسًا On that day they follow the summoner who deceiveth not, and voices are hushed for the Beneficent, and thou hearest but a faint murmur – Quran, 20:108

عن جابر بن عبد الله ، قال : دخل النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يوما نخلا لبني النجار ، فسمع أصوات رجال من بني النجار ماتوا في الجاهلية يعذبون في قبورهم ، فخرج النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فزعا ، فأمر أصحابه أن يتعوذوا من عذاب القبر On the authority of Jabir b. Abdullah, he said, The Prophet, God bless him and grant him peace, entered one day the palm groves of Bani Najjar, and heard the sounds of men from Bani Najjar who had died in the age of ignorance being punished in their graves. The Prophet, God bless him and grant him peace, exited alarmed, and ordered his companions to seek refuge from the punishment of the grave. – Musnad Ahmad b. Hanbal
