Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Are there any hadiths that tells us about the punishments of the grave a muslim woman suffers from if she does not wear hijab and proper islamic clothing in this world? If so could you mention them with their sources please. I`ll appreciate it very much. Jazakallah

Hadiths punishment of no hijab veli
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisaa verses 13-14:
13 Those are limits set by Allah: those who obey Allah and His Messenger will be admitted to Gardens with rivers flowing beneath to abide therein (for ever); and that will be the Supreme Achievement.
14 But those who disobey Allah and His Messenger and transgress His limits will be admitted to a Fire to abide therein: and they shall have a humiliating punishment.
Dear and beloved Sister in Islam, the guidance of the Glorious Quran is extremely clear….if one obeys and follows the guidance and Commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws) one will be shown Mercy; and if one intentionally disobeys the Commands and guidance of Allah and His Messenger (saws), they will have an extremely severe accounting in the Presence of their Majestic Lord on that Inevitable and Tumultuous Day of Judgment!
Your Question: ….Are there any hadiths that tells us about the punishments of the grave a muslim woman suffers from if she does not wear hijab and proper islamic clothing in this world?
To the best of our knowledge, there are no ‘hadiths’ in the authentic and established Sunnah which specifically list the punishments a believing woman will suffer in her grave if she disobeys the clear Command and guidance of adorning herself in the ‘hijaab’; but without an iota of a doubt, if one intentionally disobeys or denies or rejects any obligatory Command of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one should prepare oneself for an extremely severe accounting in the Presence of their Majestic and Supreme Lord.
Sahih Muslim Hadith 6840 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah
Allah's Messenger (saws) said: ‘There are two
types, amongst the denizens of Hell, I have yet not seen them! One possessing
whips like the tail of an ox and they flog people with them. (The second one)
the women who would be naked in spite of their being dressed, who are seduced
(to wrong paths) and seduce others with their hair high like humps. These women
would not get into Paradise and they would not even perceive the odor
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
