Death and the life in the hereafter – The Quranic Perspective by Ejaz Rasool 23 May 2021

In this video

Our death is a fact of life – we question it and try to find some plausible reason to justify its existence – various religions try to address it by providing various explanations which end up as our beliefs. The Quran also deals with this issue by appealing to the human intellect and reasoning. It addresses the issue at a very fundamental level of the existence of our ‘I’, its consciousness, our attributes of choice and intent, the functioning of the Law of Requital and by providing the evidence of the creation of the universe and then relating all these to the creation of Adam.
The Quran states that since man possesses choice and intent which he gets through ‘Divine Energy’ (23:14) and this gives him his strong sense of identity through his ‘I’. He is provided with a physical body which has an expiry date while his ‘I’ remains ageless. Being physical he is placed on this planet with a view to participate in further creation in this worldly life.

1. Two concepts of life
