In this article, Gazzali's ideas concerning death and life in grave are examined. Gazzali's ideas concerning these subjects are based on his ideas about human and soul. According to him, death entails the end of functions of both herbal and carnal souls' influence on man. Humane soul, on the other hand, does not cease to exist after life, rather it continues to exist. This humane soul can permeate even into the smallest piece of human body. Man either suffers torments or becomes happy in the grave with his own body regarding his vices or virtues revealed by him in this world.
