The Prophet said, "When a human being is laid in his grave and his
companions return and he even hears their foot steps, two angels come
to him and make him sit and ask him: What did you use to say about
this man, Muhammad ? He will say: I testify that he is Allah's slave
and His Apostle. Then it will be said to him, 'Look at your place in
the Hell-Fire. Allah has given you a place in Paradise instead of it.'"
The Prophet added, "The dead person will see both his places. But a
non-believer or a hypocrite will say to the angels, 'I do not know, but
I used to say what the people used to say! It will be said to him,
'Neither did you know nor did you take the guidance (by reciting the
Quran).' Then he will be hit with an iron hammer between his two ears,
and he will cry and that cry will be heard by whatever approaches him
except human beings and jinns."

- on Monday, Imam Qastallani said, "In his book on "Jana'iz" (Funerals),
Bukhari named an entire chapter "Dying on Monday." In it there is
the hadith of 'A'isha relating her father's (Abu Bakr as-Siddiq)
question: "On which day did the Prophet die?" She replied:
"Monday." He asked: "What day are we today?" She said, "O my
father, this is Monday."
Then he raised his hands and said: "I beg you, O Allah, to
let me die on Monday in order to coincide with the Prophet's
day of passing."
Imam Qastallani continues, "Why did Abu Bakr ask for his
death to be on Monday? So that his death would coincide with
the day of the death of the Prophet passing, in order to
receive the baraka of that day... Does anyone object to Abu
Bakr's asking to pass away on that day for the sake of baraka?
Now, why are people objecting to celebrating or emphasizing
the day of the Prophet's birth in order to get baraka?"

- Note: Muslims believed that death cannot be hastened or delayed
but is decreed by Allah
(but there are hadiths that say that when a man is about to die,
he will shown his place in paradise, and then he will be asked to
choose to go or stay).
At death, the angels Munjar and Nakir
will ask the dead person if he submits to Allah and that
Muhammad is his prophet. If he answers correctly, he has rest
and peace, else he is tortured till the Day of Resurrection.
Muslims believed that they should bless Muhammad, and other
Prophets because everytime one does that, the angels will bless
the person, especially on Friday. Muhammad is said to have said:
"A man is poor if my name is mentioned in front of him and he did
not wish for me peace."
In Qur'an, we have "Peace be unto Noah among the peoples (as-Saffat 37:79),
"Peace be unto Abraham" (as-Saffat 37:109), "Peace be unto Moses and Aaron"
(as-Saffat 37:120), "Peace be unto Elias" (as-Saffat 37:130).
