Does Life After Death Exist?

Where did the idea, that there is life after death come from?

We know for certain, that no Human Being that died; has ever returned from the grave, to tell us about a life in the Hereafter.

So where did this concept about life after death come from?

It came from the very first Revelation, given to Mankind, from the All-Mighty Creator.

If it was not for our Creator telling us about a Paradise (Heaven) and Punishment (Hellfire), after our Earthly life has ended; Mankind would never have been able to envision a life after death.

In fact if it wasn’t for The Creator Revealing knowledge about Himself; Mankind would never know anything about, The Lord-Creator of the Heavens and Earth.

MAN’S EARLY WORSHIP

Early Man, worshiped the physical creation as their god.

They worshiped the objects they saw in the sky (Sun, Moon, and the Stars); they worshiped mountains, they worshiped the thunder and lightening; and they also worshiped other Human Beings as their gods.

You may ask the question, “why did they feel the need to worship anything at all”?

The reason is because of how Human Beings have been created.

We have been created to show gratitude. We have been created to be thankful.

Early Human Beings knew that they were not responsible for the edible plants and fruit that grew, all around them.

They knew that they were not responsible for the rain, and rivers that they needed to quenched their thirst.

They knew that they were not responsible for the animals that they ate.

They knew that there was something greater than themselves; who was providing all these things that sustained their lives.

They just didn’t know who or what it was.

So they thanked the parts of the physical creation that they were familiar with.

The Sun gave them light and warmth; so some early Humans worshiped the Sun.

The Moon and the Stars gave them light in the night.

The Stars also gave them the direction for their travels.

In some primitive societies; they sacrificed virgin girls to appease their gods.

These virgins girls were the best that they could offer; so that their gods would continue to provide them with the necessities to sustain their lives.

When The Revelation came from The Creator; He told Mankind that HE was The One responsible for providing everything that sustained their lives.

That He Alone is The Creator of all creation.

That He is The Creator of the Sun, Moon and Stars; and the Earth that we live on.

And that all our gratitude should be to HIM.

To acknowledge that HE Alone should be worshiped.

He Revealed that HE Alone should be thanked, for HIS Goodness to Mankind.

He Revealed that nothing should be worshiped except HIM.

MAN’S PURPOSE IN LIFE

Our Creator also revealed the purpose of our life in this world.

We are to serve HIM in this world.

We serve HIM by being good to each other.

To not steal, cheat or abuse each other.

And if we do any of these bad things; then we must earnestly ask HIM for HIS Forgiveness.

The goal of our life in this world is the Hereafter.

Everything we do in this life is being recorded.

This life is a testing ground.

All Human Being are being tested in our behaviour on Earth.

And this is why the Life After Death is important.

And it is only in the Next Life (after death) will a full account be taken of our behaviour in this life.

Without an accounting for our behaviour in this life; our life would be meaningless.

That would mean that a person responsible for doing evil things, would be no different than a person who does good things.

They would both die and then nothing would happen.

But our Creator tells us in HIS Revelations, that those who do bad will receive their punishment for doing evil; and those who do good, will be rewarded for their goodness.

THE PLOT OF EVILDOERS

Wicked people for many centuries; have been trying to convince Humanity, that there is no Life After Death.

They say that people should do whatever they want to do in this life.

They claim that whatever you do; whether it is good or evil; it doesn’t matter because death will end our existence.

That have been trying to convince Mankind for centuries; that there is no Life after Death.

They say that after death, there is nothing.

But those of us who believe in the Revelations (Torah, Gospel, Qur’an) from our Lord-Creator; knows that there will be a Final Day of Judgment.

A Day when we will know if our good deeds outweigh our bad deeds.

O people! It is better to strive to do good; and ask HIM for forgiveness, for our faults; before we die in this Life.

After we die, there is no coming back to make amends for our conduct in this life.

This is what HE Revealed in the *Qur’an: 

With The Name of The One True **G-D, The Merciful Benefactor, The Merciful Redeemer

(O mankind), your G-D is ONE G-D. as to those who believe not in the Life After Death, their hearts refuse to know, and they are arrogant.

Undoubtedly The One G-D does knows their secret thoughts, and what they reveal: verily HE loves not the arrogant.

When they are asked, “What is it that your Lord-Creator has Revealed?”

They mockingly say, “Fairy-tales from the past!”

Let them bear, on the Day of Judgment, their own burdens in full, and also (something) of the burdens of those without knowledge, whom they misled.

Alas, how grievous the burdens they will bear!

Those before them did also plot (against the righteous): but G-D shook up their structures from the foundations, and the roof (of their dwellings) fell down on top of them from above; and the Wrath seized them from directions they did not perceive.

Then, on the Day of Judgment, HE will cover them with shame, and say: “Where are MY ‘partners’ concerning whom you used to argue (with the godly)?”

Those endued with knowledge will say: “This Day, indeed, are the Ungodly covered with shame and misery,-

“(Namely) those whose lives the Angels take in a state of wrong-doing to their own souls.”

Then; they would offer their excuse, and submission (to G-D), “We did no evil (knowingly).”

(The Angels will reply), “No, but verily G-D knows all that you did;

“So enter the Gates of Hell, to dwell therein. Thus evil indeed is the abode of the arrogant.”

To the righteous (when) they are asked, “What is it that your Guardian-Lord has revealed?”

They reply, “All that is good.”

To those who do good, there is good in this world, and the Home of the Hereafter is even better and excellent indeed is the Home of the righteous,-

Gardens of Eternity which they will enter: beneath them flow (pleasant) rivers: they will have therein all that they wish: thus does The One True G-D reward the righteous,-

(Namely) those whose lives the Angels take in a state of purity, saying (to them), “Peace be on you; enter you the Garden, because of (the good) which you did (in the world).”

Do the (ungodly) wait until the Angels come to them, or there comes the Command of your Lord-Creator (for their doom)?

So was the behavior of those (past generations) who went before them.

But G-D wronged them not: no, they wronged their own souls.

But the evil results of their (bad) deeds overtook them, and that very (truth about being judged) at which they had scorned hemmed them in.

(And these other verses)

O Mankind!

If you have a doubt about the Resurrection (after death) consider that ***WE created you out of dirt, then out of sperm, then out of a leech-like clot, then out of a morsel of flesh, partly formed and partly unformed, in order that WE may manifest (G-D’s power) to you;

And WE cause whom WE will to rest in the wombs (of their mothers) for an appointed term, then do WE bring you out as babies, then (foster you) that you may reach your age of full strength;

And some of you are called to die, and some are sent back to the feeblest old age, so that they know nothing after having known (much), and (further), you see the Earth barren and lifeless, but when WE pour down rain on it, it is stirred (to life), it swells, and it puts forth every kind of beautiful growth (in pairs). 

This is so, because The One True G-D is The Reality: it is HE Who gives life to the dead, and it is HE Who has power over all things.

(End of Qur’anic verses)

*The verses of the Holy Qur’an were revealed to Muhammed the son of Abdullah in Arabia in the 7th century.

It was revealed to him over a 23 years time period.

The Revealed Verses came from G-D’s Angel Gabriel.

Muhammed just like the majority of Arabs at that time; could neither read nor write. 

The Revealed Verses were pressed unto his heart and mind by Gabriel.

Muhammed then recited the verses to his followers and the majority of them memorised it.

Shortly after Muhammed passed away from this Earth;the Revealed Verses were compiled in the form of a book by his son-in-law Uthman.

Uthman was the third leader of the Muslim community, after Muhammed had passed away.

After the Qur’an was completed in the form of a book; Uthman gathered hundreds of the Muslims who had heard and memorised the Revealed Verses as given by Muhammed.

The complete Qur’an was recited to them; and they were asked if the verses were exactly in the same sequence and order as they had heard Prophet Muhammed recite it.

Everyone of them agreed. The written words of G-D’s Revelations to Muhammed; was the same as they had memorised it.

Many non Muslims may not be aware that the order of the Verses in the Qur’an, are not in the same order, as they were Revealed to Muhammed.

For instance the First and Last Revealed verses of the Qur’an, are in the middle of the Qur’an.

These verses are not at the beginning and nor at the end of the Qur’an.

In fact many of the early Revelations given to Muhammed, are actually at the end of the Qur’an.

Muhammed recited it in the order, as he was instructed to, by the Angel Gabriel.  

**G-D instead of god. When god is spelt backwards it is dog. This is not a respectful spelling of a word to be used in reference to the All-Mighty Creator of the Heavens and Earth.

***WE, US, OUR are references in the Holy Qur’an to all of the forces of power (Angels) under the control of The Creator. They manage all creation. They are totally obedient to The All-Mighty G-D, and obeys HIS Commands without question.
