The Souls Journey after Death By Ibn Al-Qayyim
Title of the book is “The Souls Journey After Death”. An abridgement of Ibn Al-Qayyim’s Kitabar-Ruh. Commentary by Layla Mabrouk. When somebody dies, our sorrow and tears, our weeping and mourning soon cease. The funeral rites, the Thursday ceremony and finally the forty-day ceremony are held and then all is forgotten. We say to ourselves, the living go of the dead. We forget or pretend to forget that he is in fact. He faces the future all alone, hidden away in the earthworms, buried under the earth in a desolate grave. He was in the light. He was surrounded by beauty and spaciousness and now he is enclosed in narrowness and gloom. He was in bliss and he is now in torment.
All this, however, is measured by the criteria that are completely different from those that we, the living, use. We can not perceive these things with our eyes or our inner senses or even our ears. The dead person is completely aware of them, but according to the criteria of the next world. What are those criteria? What is death, What is life in the Nest World, the world after death? Questions, many questions come to mind.
This book is a comprehensive answer to all of these questions, which is based on the Quran, the Sunna, the Traditions and what is the greatest scholarship have said. Read in English language, download in pdf format to read offline.
