When people die, they stay between this life and afterlife. It's called Barzakh. Al-Barzakh is generally viewed as the barrier between the physical and spiritual worlds, in which the soul awaits after death and before resurrection on Qiyamah (Judgement Day). At the state of Barzakh, people get questioned, showed what they did in their life and ...

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.

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 ...

Accountability for actions is for all creatures that have a soul (humans, jinns, and animals) . Accountability for belief is only for humans and jinns. Eternity in heaven or hell is only for humans and jinns. Accountability for actions I will only address animals in this section, as it goes without saying that both humans and jinns are accountable for their ...

The definition of soul is: The spiritual or immaterial part of a human being or animal, regarded as immortal. Spirit is defined as: The nonphysical part of a person that is the seat of emotions and character; the soul. Both of them are two synonymous English words that have the same meaning. So, there is no difference between soul and sprit in ...

But is there any mentioning in Quran about the size/ volume of soul of human being? No. Quran doesn't mention about size or volume of the soul. In fact it is not a physical thing, hence cannot be measured. This shall help you better understand it. http://www.irfi.org/articles/articles_51_100/nature_of_soul.htm

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 ...

Yes animals do have souls but no other has any match with humans' soul because humans are best creature of Allah. An interesting analogy can be drawn with the following verses where Prophet Jesus (pbuh) blows something into clay birds to make them into a living being 003:049: ...'I have come to you, with a Sign from your Lord, in that I make for you ...

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. Say, "The soul is ...

The english translation of Tafsir Ibn Kathir is abridged and omits some of the hadith cited after this sentence: There are Hadiths that mention that Allah took Adam's offspring from his loins and divided them into those on the right and those on the left.

There is a certain delicacy when Quran speaks about Allah. I think Surah Tawhid is a great measure. Specifically و لم یکن له کفوا احد. If our spirit was of the same essence of Allah then we could countering Allah in that aspect. From the book of Al-kafi: From Imam Al-Sadiq: الصّادق (علیه السلام)- عَنِ الْأَحْوَلِ قَالَ: سَأَلْتُ أَبَاعَبْدِاللَّهِ (...

Allah the Almighty says in the Qur'an addressing his prophet (): And they ask you, [O Muhammad], about the soul. Say, "The soul is of the affair of my Lord. And mankind have not been given of knowledge except a little." (17:85) This verse say that none but Allah knows about the soul! So only trough Allah we can gain knowledge about it!

There are two distinct words “nafs” and “rooh”, which are both translated as “soul” in English. The word rooh is the same as the English word for soul. Nafs, however, is slightly different. The word nafs is defined as “a feature of the soul. This feature continuously directs people to committing sin.”★ The desire to commit evil acts, such as lying and ...

You have first to distinguish between spirits and Ghosts. Also notice that when human die, this doesn't mean that their souls (spirits) go to other world! what other world!! who knows?! With respect to your question, this is true, but is it spirits! souls! ghosts! who knows!! The prophet Slieman (Solmon) before had made a war with ghosts and since that ...

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. The people around him see the effects of these things happening, but not the events themselves. The angels either give him good news of what is to come or bad news. Death is ...

According to Islamic doctrine, when a person dies, his soul resides in barzakh. The word barzakh means "obstacle" or "barrier". It is a place where the souls will reside until the Day of Resurrection. Allah almighty, may he be glorified and exalted, said regarding barzakh (interpretation of the meaning): [23.99] Until when death overtakes one of them, he ...

There doesn't seem to be a clear direct hadith/narration regarding this issue, but there can be inferred of some/several hadiths that: Apparently, Azrael gets the souls of animals. As a relevant narration which can confirm it, is that: I have no power of doing anything without the permission of Allah, even to get the soul of the flight (mosquito). Ref....

Whether you are going to Heaven or hell depends on what you have done with your life, all the good deeds you have done. If willingly give your soul to the evil, which is more like a suicide, you will end up in hell.

Oh, what it is claimed would definitely be wrong as: we have heard of people kidnapping children and sacrificing them to the evil for their selfish purpose...and also we heard of the illuminati ...they also are sacrificing people to the evil.. My question is that If someone kidnaps me by force... and they sacrifice me (killed me) Would I go to ...

Yes, the souls of Muslims can meet and communicate after death, Source. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: فَيَأْتُونَ بِهِ أَرْوَاحَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ فَلَهُمْ أَشَدُّ فَرَحًا بِهِ مِنْ أَحَدِكُمْ بِغَائِبِهِ يَقْدَمُ عَلَيْهِ فَيَسْأَلُونَهُ مَاذَا فَعَلَ فُلاَنٌ مَاذَا فَعَلَ فُلاَنٌ فَيَقُولُونَ دَعُوهُ فَإِنَّهُ كَانَ فِي غَمِّ ...

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. In the absence of any such revelations, one will not be able to tell the cause of seeing deceased people in one's dream. The potential of ...

As‘salaamu alaikum! Souls are definitely created things, although I do not know the mystery of how Allahu ta alaa made them nor what he created them from. I only know that ALL THINGS, except Allahu ta alaa Himself, are created things. That necessarily includes the souls. But I can substantiate my claims directly from the Qur‘an.... “When your Lord drew ...

What happens in the grave to believers or disbelievers is a matter of ghaib (unseen, non-attendance) that we only come to know of through verses of the Qur'an or authenticated hadiths of the Prophet ﷺ, neither of which address any of your questions. We do not know if a buried body feels the decay process of their body; and if it is the case, we do not know ...

Regardless of how a person's remains are buried (or not buried), they will be judged and given their punishment or reward. For example, the man in this hadith: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "There was a man amongst the people who had suspicion as to the righteousness of his deeds. Therefore he said to his family, 'If I die, take me and burn my corpse and throw my ...

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]. It will be taken by the Angels into the next realm (Al Barzakh) and follow the proceedings there. That is where the spirit will be moving (by the lead of Angels). ...
