Question

Who is our Muslim leader that we should answer when we will be asked by Angel Munkar?

Answer

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the World; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.

Every dead person (Muslim and non-Muslim) from among the Ummah that witnessed the mission and invitation of the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) will be questioned by angels in his grave about Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam).
On the authority of Anas that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said: "When a human (dead person) is laid in his grave and his companions return and he hears their footsteps, two angels will come to him and make him sit and ask him: 'what did you say about this man, Muhammad ?' A believer will say: "I testify that he is Allah's servant and His Messenger" [Reported by Imams Bukhari and Muslim ].
The above-mentioned Hadith clearly indicates that the question is about Allah's Messenger, Muhammad , (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam).
Allah knows best.
