4.Allah's Creation of the Soul, in Accordance with His Saying, {And they ask you

concerning the soul. Say, "The soul: its knowledge is with my Lord. And of knowledge, you(mankind)have been given only a little."}[Al-Israa' 17: 85]

     Allah (Glorious & Exalted) created the soul and placed it in the human being and other creatures, for a fixed term, until Allah (Mighty & Majestic) reclaims it, taking back the soul. For He (Noble & Sublime) decreed death and extinction for man and other living creatures, according to the Saying of the Most High, {Whatsoever is on it (the earth)will perish. * And the Face of your Lord full of Majesty and Honor will abide forever.}[Al-Rahman 55: 26-27]

     Then, Allah Almighty will return the soul to the human being and to other living creatures (such as animals and birds), to serve him with his accounting and recompense. And so it shall be for the others. That will happen on the Day of Judgment (in the realm of everlasting life).

     So, if he was a good believer, he will go to Allah's Heaven: the realm of blessing and the achievement of His good pleasure.

     And if he was a disbeliever, an idolater, and atheist, a corrupt person, etc., he will go to the Hellfire: the realm of misery, due to His displeasure (Noble & Sublime).

     Allah (Mighty & Majestic) created the soul and made it a cause of man's life, and the life of other living creatures, for He (Noble & Sublime) is the One Who causes the causes and creates them. That is for a great and noble wisdom that only He (Noble & Sublime) knows.

     If we examine closely and contemplate this soul that Allah Almighty created and made a cause for the life of human beings and other creatures, we would still be sure of the Absolute Power of God, the Creator of the soul and the greatness and wondrousness of His creation of all things.

     Modern science is incapable of studying the soul, even with all its modern technological means, since the bases and foundations for such a study are not available; they are not even known. That is why the soul, which was created by Allah Almighty, placed in the human body, and made a cause for its life and the life of other living beings, is one of the mysteries (Noble & Sublime) of His creation. Indeed, it is a sign of the wondrousness of His design and evidence for the greatness and absoluteness of His Power (Noble & Sublime).
