Salaam, an interesting khutbah that deals with a subject that is rarely discussed: Death and the hereafter.
The Imam talked about near death experiences (These normally prove that consciousness continue after death) he did mention the phase of the grave and then went on to explain that when we die we do not feel time because we have no consciousness likening death to sleep and referring to ashab al khaf.
I am not sure where the Imam stands on this subject. If he thinks that consciousness somehow vanishes after death, then I will have to disagree with him.
According to the Quran the Hadeeth and modern science, consciousness does survive physical death. There are numerous Ayat in the Quran that confirm that.
Ayah No 99-100 surat al Mumnun: Ø­Ù?تÙ?Ù?Ù? Ø¥Ù?ذا جاءÙ? Ø£Ù?Ø­Ù?دÙ?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù? اÙ?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?تÙ? Ù?اÙ?Ù? رÙ?بÙ?Ù? ارÙ?جÙ?عÙ?Ù?Ù?Ù? (99) Ù?Ù?عÙ?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù? Ø£Ù?عÙ?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù? صاÙ?Ù?Ø­Ù?ا Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?ا تÙ?رÙ?Ù?Ù?تÙ? Ù?Ù?Ù?اÙ?Ù? Ø¥Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?ا Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ø©Ù? Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù? Ù?ائÙ?Ù?Ù?Ù?ا Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù? Ù?Ù?رائÙ?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù? بÙ?رÙ?زÙ?Ø®Ù? Ø¥Ù?Ù?Ù? Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù? Ù?Ù?بÙ?عÙ?Ø«Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù? when death comes upon one of them he says o lord let me go back to where I left so I can do a good deed, no it is a word he is uttering and behind them is a barrier till they are resurrected
Ayah No 93 Surat al Anâ??aam: Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù? تÙ?رÙ?Ù? Ø¥Ù?Ø°Ù? اÙ?ظÙ?Ù?اÙ?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù? Ù?Ù?Ù? غÙ?Ù?Ù?رÙ?اتÙ? اÙ?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?تÙ? Ù?Ù?اÙ?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?ائÙ?Ù?Ù?Ø©Ù? بÙ?اسÙ?Ø·Ù?Ù? Ø£Ù?Ù?Ù?دÙ?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù? Ø£Ù?Ø®Ù?رÙ?جÙ?Ù?ا Ø£Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?سÙ?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù? اÙ?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù? تÙ?جÙ?زÙ?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù? عÙ?Ø°Ù?ابÙ? اÙ?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù? بÙ?Ù?Ù?ا Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?تÙ?Ù?Ù? تÙ?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù? عÙ?Ù?Ù?Ù? اÙ?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù? غÙ?Ù?Ù?رÙ? اÙ?Ù?Ø­Ù?Ù?Ù?Ù?

Ø¢Ù?Ù?اتÙ?Ù?Ù? تÙ?سÙ?تÙ?Ù?Ù?بÙ?رÙ?Ù?Ù?Ù? and if you can see the Unjust wrongdoers in the agony of death and the angels extend their hands demanding them to yield their souls Today you will be punished with humiliation for having attributed to God something that is not true, and for having persistently scorned His messages in your arrogance!
Then we have a powerful detailed description of the process of death and what happens immediately after, at the end of surat El-waqiâ??ah ayat 83-96.
I am not sure if, after reading these ayat, it is safe to say we have no consciousness after death.

All this and Allah knows best
