Asalamalikum So I asked the question to a learned muslim as his answer was “I don’t know” so here I came

  • No. Allah has already created all the souls. He doesn't create new ones. – Hegao Jan 18 at 4:35
  • This question isn't answerable -as we don't know what Allah does or leaves that's beyond our knowledge. Any answer would be rather an assumption unless Allah gave us any hints by a kind of revelation. However I tend to say no because the soul according hadith is added after fertilization. – Medi1Saif Jan 18 at 17:29
  • What does the question ask in the first place? Are you asking whether God creates a new soul whenever a couple have sex? – SpiderRico Jan 18 at 18:14

Prophet (SAWW) said: “Souls are like crowds which gather together. The ones who met before get on well. The ones, who did not meet before, cannot get on very well and separate.” (Bukhari, Anbiya, 2; Muslim, Birr, 159; Abu Dawud, Adab, 19).

This hadith states that people met somewhere before they came to world. Clearly, as it cannot have happened in mothers’ wombs, it means they indeed existed before and were created before they came into mothers’ wombs. Hence meaning, Allah doesn't create a new soul everytime.
