Life After Death

Man lives in this World for a limited and appointed term. His knowledge about the life after death is deficient as is his knowledge of his life before birth. Almighty Allah is All Knowing and Ever Existent. He knew us when we were unborn and knows the generations which will be born from our children yet unborn. According to His message, the life in this world is a transitory stage leading to a higher, fuller and permanent existence. From the port of death we embark on a higher form of life just as a tourist leaves a cab behind at the airport to fly high in a supersonic jet. The life of this world and the life Hereafter are closely integrated.
After death is one of the most important fundamentals of Islam. The Holy Quran deals with this subject in a forceful and logical way. The unbelievers of the past and present still doubt that once we are dead and disintegrated; we could be recreated and resurrected. Almighty Allah exhorts them to consider the first creation as evidence.
This earth is a testing ground upon which it is determined, whether one will enjoy eternal bliss in Paradise or terrible agony and anguish in Hell. It is senseless to say that we are born by accident and there will be no life after death “With all the planning circumspection and mellifluous care that have gone into making of the universe, with its innumerable objects and forces for the use and service of man and with all the faculties and potentialities that man has been gifted as the most exalted of all creatures., he has not been created just to live for a few moments and then get completely annihilated.As a matter of fact the worldly life has a definite purpose and a goal towards which it is moving. Subsequently life in this world is neither to be despised nor to be given exaggerated value nor is to be frittered away in idle pursuits and gay abandoned. It is to be led in an orderly manner in conformity with the Divine laws, for the universe has not been created for pastime nor is the life of this world a mere accident. Life after death is one of the most important fundamentals of Islam. The Holy Quran deals with this subject in a forceful and logical way. The unbelievers of the past and present still doubt that once we are dead and disintegrated; we could be recreated and resurrected. Almighty Allah exhorts them to consider the first creation as evidence. Man says; “What! When I am dead, shall I then be raised up alive?” But does not man call to mind that we created him before out of nothing? (Surah 19 Verse 66-67).And they (sometimes) say; There is nothing except our life on this earth, and never shall we be raised up again.’’( Surah 6 Verse 29)
