The Imaam said, “Be cognizant of the fact that whether the dead can hear or not is an issue of the Unseen related to Barzakh which no one except Allaah عز وجل knows about, so it is not allowed to delve into it based upon qiyaas and opinions, rather, in affirming and negating, one halts at the text about it.”

And he said, “Coming to deductions based upon the intellect … has no place in any issue related to the Unseen.”
