Allah Ta`ala takes the soul by Him. Then He releases it if life is destined for that person. Then he wakes up. Else Allah Ta`ala holds the soul by Him and that person dies during sleep. ”Allah reçoit les âmes au moment de leur mort ainsi que celles qui ne meurent pas au cours de leur sommeil. Il retient celles à qui Il a décrété la mort, tandis qu’Il renvoie les autres jusqu’à un terme fixé. Il y a certainement là des preuves pour des gens qui réfléchissent.”(39:42). There are hadith that says the virtue of sleeping with wouzu, that the rouh goes and make sajdah of Allah.
