I wonder if the concept of Reincarnation has been clearly refused in Qur'an/Islam. If so, in which verse/hadith?

Wikipedia defines Reincarnation as:
One of the primary beliefs of Islam is the belief in the Hereafter, resurrection, the Paradise and the Hell.
Allah says (interpretation of the meaning]:
And He says (interpretation of meaning):
He also says [interpretation of the meaning]:
And He says (interpretation of the meaning):
And He says concerning the disbelievers who think they will not be resurrected (interpretation of the meaning):
Allah says refuting those who claim reincarnation (interpretation of the meaning):
Which means “do you not learn a lesson from those nations whom Allah destroyed before you of those who disbelieved in the Messengers. They came to this world only once, and will not return to it."
There are several hadeeth as well which mention and confirm resurrection. For example:
The idea of reincarnation is rejection and denial of resurrection and hereafter and it has been refuted by texts of Islam.
According to this verse there is no reincarnation in Islam
There are verses which contradict Reincarnation other than Barzakh itself which clearly contradicts it (since you're asking for them specifically):
And a hadith on this matter from Alī ibn Mūsā al-Riḍā:
Reincarnation is not in accordance with the Qur'an or Sunnah. In Islam we believe in the hereafter, meaning we die in this life and and are brought back to life in the next. The concept of reincarnation is that someone dies and then begins a new life in a new form. Islam rejects this concept, we believe that when we die we go to the Barzakh and we stay there until The Day of Judgement. Furthermore the concept of reincarnation basically means one doesn't die, just begins a new life in a new form/body, but Allah says:
Short answer is no.
According to the Quran:
The analogy of life in the dunya(the here now/the near/the low) is what the Quran is pointing out. Life of a soul is symbolized as the droplet of water coming from the heavens/sky/samaa (notice not akhirah/laters/which is not necessarily the end, i.e. life after the dunya that could be once, twice, thrice etc.). This water mixes up with other creation such as the various kinds of plantation. This symbolizes the different kinds of species this life of a soul can attach to. This may imply that it's attachment to the current host is dependent on the worthiness of this soul's deed in it's past life.
The barzakh polemic can be solved by pointing out that once this life detaches from it's manifestation in the dunya, it then reaches an intermediate state (the barzakh) where the soul awaits for a trial..at this point the soul cannot return back to the manifestation in the past dunya where it is once attached to. It awaits a new allocation of a later life (the akhirah) and the cycle begins again.
There is no concept of Re-Incarnation in Islam. In islam, there is Re-birth, but only once. And that is that when a person dies, he will be again given life only at the day of judgment and that life will be eternal, never ending. There is no birth-death-birth-death.... life cycle in Islam
There is no Reincarnation belief in Islam, but the Reincarnation comes from Islam.
Almost all kind of corrupted and baatil mis-beliefs comes from ancient Islam ummats. After their nabis die, their original Islam beliefs start to corrupt over time, and they finally become mythologies and these kind of mis-beliefs (like Reincarnation).
That is the reason why the mythology and Abrahamic religions look so much alike.
