Death - Do Souls of the Deceased Visit Their Homes and Family?
  • Question:

    Do the souls/spirits of deceased visit their homes and family and friends? I have heard that the good spirits are allowed by Allah SWT to visit their families.


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    I have not come across any evidence from source texts that suggest souls of the dead return to this world. However, there are prophetic reports that clearly indicate pious souls roaming in paradise.

    And Allah knows best.
