I have never heard of such a statement! I do not know about other sects but Shi'ites all believe every one has soul, be it man or woman. If you ask what soul is then there is a verse in Quran that warns we cannot understand the soul's meaning (maybe because no human can see human from outside in, like we cannot see the spherical shape of the earth until we ...

Yes they have. But their soul is different from that of humans. Quran says: And there is no creature on [or within] the earth or bird that flies with its wings except [that they are] communities like you. We have not neglected in the Register a thing. Then unto their Lord they will be gathered. http://tanzil.net/#6:38 This verse says animals will ...

Yes, the soul does depart from the body when one is asleep, and returns by the permission of Allah: اللَّهُ يَتَوَفَّى الأَنْفُسَ حِينَ مَوْتِهَا وَالَّتِي لَمْ تَمُتْ فِي مَنَامِهَا فَيُمْسِكُ الَّتِي قَضَى عَلَيْهَا الْمَوْتَ وَيُرْسِلُ الأُخْرَى إِلَى أَجَلٍ مُسَمًّى إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لآيَاتٍ لِقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ Surat Azamar Ayah 42 ...

First of all: I would like to get sources about this topic. You haven't even mentioned sources that is holding up your statement or question. And you want sources or evidences against it?

There is no clear evidence as to whether the dead can hear or see those who are alive or not. There is evidence that certain incidents took place, or still take place, where the dead can hear those who are alive, but the opinion is that such incidents are either specific to the Prophet ﷺ or specific to a time or place. The Qur'an compares the disbelievers ...

First let me comment that the dying instant is not really an instant of time, it MAY be felt as a very long period of time by the person being dying, but not always as it depends on the person being dying. In this period of time many things may happen among them being punishments (not talking about after death, but death itself). Then we have some pre-death ...

The questions you ask about ar-rūḥ (soul, Arabic: الروح) are similar to the questions that the Prophet ﷺ was asked, and Allah addressed similar questions in the Qur'an: وَيَسْأَلُونَكَ عَنِ الرُّوحِ ۖ قُلِ الرُّوحُ مِنْ أَمْرِ رَبِّي وَمَا أُوتِيتُم مِّنَ الْعِلْمِ إِلَّا قَلِيلًا And they ask you, [O Muhammad], about the soul.

Yes animals do have souls but no other has any match with humans' soul because humans are best creature of Allah.

At the time of death, the angel of death is dispatched to retrieve the soul from the person (al-An`am:61). The form these angels take depends on the state of belief of the person.

Whether a dead person's soul travels back to Earth to visit family or friends is a matter of the unseen that only Allah knows that we would only come to know through revelations from Allah to His prophets or messengers.

No. The spirit has left the realm of the world (dunya). It will not be moving or walking around the world. [There is no Islamic evidence to suggest so, for either the believer or disbeliever].
