Question

Do the people who believe Allaah when they are died feel pain it is incinerated or burned away?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger. We ask Allaah to exalt his mention as well as that of his family and all his companions.

 

After the soul leaves the body, the corpse does not feel anything. Ibn 'Uyaynah, narrated from Mansoor Ibn Safiyyah from his mother said: "It was said to Ibn 'Umar, that Asamaa', the daughter of Abu Bakr, may Allaah be pleased with all of them, was in one side of the mosque [sad and lamenting] her son Ibn Az-Zubayr  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him when he was crucified. So he went to her and told her: "These corpses do not suffer anything (i.e. after death), the souls are indeed with Allaah, so fear Allaah and be patient."

We have already issued Fatwa: 84867 about the ruling of burying the dead, so please refer to it.  

Allaah knows best.
