The interpreter of the Quran and the Bible said:
"It has become obviously clear to me, and I have become certain – according to what I myself had seen in the spirit world, and according to what I had read in the heavenly books: the Torah, the Gospel and the Quran – that:
the 'soul" [or the human spirit] is the true man; so it is the soul that will be judged, and it is the soul that will be rewarded or punished. It is the soul that perceives the pain and pleasure, and will go into either Paradise or Hell.
While as regards the body, it isn't more than a mould inside which the soul is formed , and it will not be needed after death, and it is not necessary to bring it back to life again; because souls are perpetual forever, do not die or vanish;
but some of them will be in prosperity, and some of them will be in Hell: each one according to his faith and work; so that if he is one of the believers and righteous people, then his resort will be in Paradise and he will be in everlasting happiness; while if he is one of the disbelievers or associaters [i.e. those who associate some partners whom they worship together with God], then his resort will be into the Fire so that he will be in an everlasting suffering.
God – be glorified – said in the Quran 2: 154, which means:
(And say not of those who are slain in God's way: 'They are dead.' No, but they are alive [by their souls], though you perceive [them] not.)"
