THE JOURNEY OF THE HUMAN SOUL, ADM
In words there was nothing in existence apart from Allah
Everything that one can see all around oneself such as the sky, sun, moon, birds animals, rivers and mountains were not created by themselves and nor were they created by mankind. They were not in pre‐existence and likewise Angels, paradise, hell, The Throne of Allah, The Divine Chair, The Sacred Tablet and The Pen also did not exist, and there was only Allah and nothing else. Allah created the whole of the universe including human and jinn only to know recognition and worship Him. Humans did not bring themselves into existence. That is the reason why they cannot live the kind of life they desire. Rather they should live the life according to the way their Creator wills for them. This is the only way that they can be successful forever. In Surah Mulk Allah the Exalted mentions “He has created death and life that He may test you which of you is best in deed”. (Meaning of the translation).
THE REALM OF THE SPIRITS
Allah created all of the spirits and asked them “Am I not your Lord?” Every spirit amongst mankind replied “Yes, Oh Allah You are our Lord”. Since the spirits testified to the Oneness of Allah, they have been sent to this world and are given a body in order to prove practically for what they testified in the World of Spirits.
THE TEMPORAL WORLD (Dunya)
The spirit has been sent in this world for a short period of time as a test. It has been given a body, which has different types of needs and desires. The test being that the person either uses their body to obey the command of Allah Ta’la and follow the way of The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), or will he follow the devil and his own desires.
THE INTERMEDIATE WORLD (Barzakh ‐ life after death)
The place where a person will reside in after death until the day of judgement is known as the barzakh (grave). Here the choice of a person ends. His grave will either become a garden of bliss or a pit of fire due to the bad deeds he did in the world. This world exists in a different dimension. The human eye cannot see the other side.
THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT
This Day while be 50,000 years long according to time scale. In this one day many worldly lives can be relived. On this day every person will have to give account for each and every second. In particular his youth and where he spent his resources and how he earned his wealth and what he spent it on. He will also be most certainly asked in regards to how much he acted upon his knowledge. For the pious people this day will pass very swiftly. On this day there will be three courts.
THE LIFE IN HELL
If out of His Grace and Mercy Allah does not forgive the rebellious and sinful People they will be spending a very long time in the scorching heat, valleys and rivers of Hellfire which will be made out of fire and filthy discharges of the people of Hell. The nonbelievers will abide therein forever whereas the Believers will be taken out after a period of time.
THE EVERLASTING LIFE OF PARADISE
Those people who believed and led a pious life and safeguarded themselves from sin, Allah Ta’la through His infinite mercy and grace will inhabit them forever in Paradise. The paradise of a normal inhabitant will be many times bigger than this world. Every dweller of paradise will have the height of Prophet Adam, beauty of Prophet Yusuf, age of Prophet Isa, voice of Prophet Daud, and the character of our Master Muhammad (Peace be upon them all). Allah the Majestic will directly speak to the people and show them his unrivalled and unmatched beauty. In paradise there will be no sickness, death or any other problems or difficulties. It will be for those people who have pleased their Lord in this World.
So that mankind can save themselves from the punishment of Hellfire and enter paradise a person is trained in this path as how to purify his body, mind and soul from the sins and then how to maintain their purity – this is known as Self-purification (Tazkiyah Nafs). After a person purifies himself he becomes the beloved of Allah and Allah the exalted becomes pleased and happy with that person, or else after death an extremely painful torment awaits him.
