Most people do not believe in the sending to the Next Life, because they think that the body is to be resurrected; therefore, they deem such thing most improbable, but the true thing is not like what (most Muslims, Christians, Jews and others think):
In other words, most Muslims, Christians, Jews and others are wrong
But in fact the body will not be resurrected
, because it is useless, while the true man is the soul or the spirit, which will go to the world of souls or the Afterlife:
Quran 36: 77-83
, which mean:
[Ubayy, the son of Khalaf al-Jumahi came to the Prophet – salam to him – carrying by his hand a rotten bone, and said: “You claim that your Lord resurrect the dead, but who can bring this back as it was!?” and he smashed it with his hand!
Therefore, this aya was revealed:]
Do not man [: the associater] see that We created him from scanty [seminal] fluid
, and that he
has become a manifest opponent?
And he tells Us an example [of the decayed bones] and forgets about his own creation [that he was created from seminal fluid]; he says: "Who can revive the bones when they are decayed!?"
Say [Mohammed, answering him]: "He revives them, That Who created them at the beginning [from seminal fluid]; He is All-Knowing about everything in the creation."
Who made for you fire out of the green tree, that you may kindle fire out of it.
Therefore, is not [God], Who created the heavens and the earth, All-Able to create the like of them? Yes, indeed; He is the Creator [of everything], the All-Knowing.
His command, when He intends [to create or destroy] anything, is to say to it “Be", and it is [as He intends.]
So glory be to Him f Who owns all things, and to Him you [all] shall be returned [after death.]
So as such will We restore the rotten bones into seminal fluids out of which We create the fetus in the womb of the mother, then they will be born, then they will grow to become human beings like themselves.
The indication of this is His saying – be glorified – in this soora 36: 81
, which means:
(Therefore, is not [God], Who created the heavens and the earth, All-Able to create the like of them? Yes, indeed; He is the All-Creator, the All-Knowing.
In addition, God – be glorified – said in the Quran 17: 99
, which means:
(Have they not seen that God Who created the heavens and the earth is Able to create the like of them?
Moreover He has appointed for them a term, of which there is no doubt; yet the wrong-doers refuse anything but to disbelieve [and deny the truth.]
The meaning: God – be glorified – can make a field or a garden on those graves, and such bones will be the manure for the trees which will absorb them from the earth. And so there will form fruits on such trees, out of which men will eat to become seminal fluid in their bodies. Afterwards, this seminal fluid will go to the womb of mothers by means of the sexual intercourse, then they will become fetus, then they will be born, grow and become human being like them.
I myself [the interpreter Mohammed Ali Hassan] saw many graveyards have now become a farm, houses or shops.
He means: Ubayy, the son of Khalaf.
So God – be glorified – did not emphasize on the resurrecting, but He said: If He likes He can resurrect them. This is confirmed by His saying – be glorified – in the Quran 80: 21-22, which means:
(Then He causes him to die, then to be buried in a grave. Then if He wills, He may resurrect him.)
Then He – be glorified – said in the following aya, which means:
(No, [He wills not to resurrect him; because] he has not carried out [the duties, to] which He has commanded him.)
It means: you take wood for fuel.
In the past they used to kindle the fire from trees in two ways; that was when they had not the match sticks; so they had special trees: some of them called the tree of the ‘Murkh’ and the other the tree of the ‘Ifar’.
Therefore, when they wanted to kindle fire, they struck a stick from the first tree with a stick from the second tree, and on their friction, the fire would kindle as does the match stick inflame.
The second way: They took some of the tree bark, put it on their trigger, and struck the trigger with the pebbles and so sparks would issue between the pebble and the iron piece and so the tree bark would inflame, of which they would kindle their fire-wood.
That which they put on the trigger for burning was called ‘Quw’. This ‘Quw’ might also be made from melon crust, as was also made from cotton after mixing it with some substances aiding the inflammation.
The meaning: Nothing of the creation or destruction may be difficult to Him.
This is to exalt Him above having any disability.
The interpretation is by Mohammed-Ali Hassan Al-Hilly.
