Assalamualaikum brothers and sisters,
I am quite curious about the body - soul relationship in human beings. What I wanted to know is :
Can the soul have senses (see, hear, smell, etc.), speak, or move on its own without a body for it to use? Can it think for itself?
Does it depend on the body for such things?
Is the soul self aware/conscious of itself when separated from the body?
If its possible, please provide sources from the Quran, hadiths, or works of muslim scholars.
