THE SOUL’S ABODE AFTER DEATH: CONTACT WITH OTHER SOULS

by it.ibrahim 0 Comments

The souls of the righteous believers meet each other, according to the orthodox Islamic view. This position is based upon the hadeeth in which Masrooq reported that on one occasion the companions said to Allaah’s Messenger (PBUH), “It is not right for us to part company with you in this world because when you die and are raised up [into the heavens], we will not be able to see you.” Then Allaah, the Exalted, revealed the following verse: “Whoever obeys Allaah and the Messenger will be in the company of those whom Allaah has shown favor—the Prophets, the affirmers of truth, the martyrs and the righteous. What a wonderful company they are.” According to Ibn al-Qayyim, this “wonderful company” is established in this life, in the barzakh and in the Hereafter. Man is with whom he loves in these three stages of his soul’s existence, since there is no evidence restricting it to this life and Paradise only.
