Question: Does the dead person see? And how far can he see?
Answer: Shaykh Muhammad bin Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen رحمه الله answered:
The deceased person does not see the seeing which is known in the dunya (this life), because by dying he has lost his senses, but he sees that which he sees in his grave from the world of the hereafter, and his grave is expanded for him for as far as he can see if he is a believer, and he sees the two angels when they question him about his Lord, his religion and his prophet.
As for that which relates to the affairs of the dunya he does not see it, because he is veiled from the affairs of the dunya as a result of dying.
