Afterwards, about 2 years ago I met this one .. we discussed many points .. his belief in the Mahdi (Abu Abd-Allah) was shaken, he wavered .. in fact he denied the program of the interpreter (the Mahdi.)
I said to him: "You cannot deny the Afterlife, as was described by the interpreter, because you understood it and were convinced .. so how can you deny it."
I mean: You still believe in it, because it is the truth.
And he could not give any answer, but only to agree .. in spite of his disbelief and denial.
So what the interpreter said in his book Man after Death http://www.quran-ayat.com/man/index.htm
Man consists of a material body + a spiritual ethereal soul.
The soul is the true man, while the body is only a mold for forming the soul.
The body dies and decays, while the soul survives and is immortal.
The soul is a true copy of the body, and will be young forever.
Names of the special senses of the body and the soul:
The eye of the body --- forms inside it the sight of the soul.
The ear of the body --- forms inside it the hearing of the soul.
The heart of the body --- forms the spiritual heart of the soul.
The mouth of the body --- forms the spiritual mouth of the soul.
Every organ of the body ---forms its ethereal copy organ of the soul.
Therefore, it is the soul that sees through the eye of the body,
and the soul which hears, not the body, but through the ear of the body.
So the soul is like the driver, while the body is like the car.
And the soul has the control over the body to drive it to where it likes, and to direct it to what it likes.
The material world and the ethereal (spiritual) world
The ethereal (spiritual) world or the Afterlife is around us, but we don't perceive it; then when we die we will realize about the other ethereal world.
Genies have their material body created from gases. In addition, they have their souls formed from the ether.
Humans have their material bodies created from elements of the earth, like sodium, potassium, iron, calcium ..etc. In addition, they have their souls formed from the ether.
The spiritual (ethereal) beings include: the human souls, genie souls, devils and angels.
The angels were human beings who lived on the planets of the previous solar system, which was destroyed in the previous Doomsday.
Then God admitted them into Paradise in Heaven, and clothed them with ethereal skins, and they became the angels.
Devils were the disobedient genies in their life in the World, then following their death they became the souls of the disobedient genies, or they became the devils.
Therefore, the 'devils' are the souls of the disobedient genies.
And Satan was their father, just as Adam was our father.
