What do deeds look like?

SHAFAQNA – According to narrations, each of our deeds will show themselves into shapes in the hereafter, for example, deeds like Salaat, fasting, Zakat, Hajj, helping religious brethren and Welayah will be shown as six angels and inside the grave will protect the body from six sides. The angel of Welayah will be placed above the head and in charge of other angels [1].

Imam Sadeq (AS) said: When a believer is placed in a grave, Salaat will be placed on his/her right hand side, Zakat will be on the left hand side, all the good deeds will be above the head and the patience will be on the other side. When the two angels will come for questioning, the patience will tell the Salaat and the fasting: Defend your owner otherwise I am ready to do so [2].
