Visualize your grave

Whenever he passed by a graveyard, Sayyiduna ‘Uthman (radiyallahu ‘anhu) always wept so bitterly that his beard would get wet.
Someone asked, “Why is it that you do not weep as much when mention is made of Jannah and Jahannam?” He replied, “I have heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) say, “The grave is the first of the many stages of the Hereafter. Whoever fails to succeed in the grave will find the stages thereafter to be even more difficult.”

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2308, Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 4267)
