Destruction Of The Universe And Souls
Posted 06 July 2012 - 01:40 PM
I thought about this question right before I fell asleep (i.e. before my soul temporarily left my body.) Allah swt speaks about the ultimate destruction of our physical universe in the Quran. He swt mentions how this universe was created and will eventually be rolled back together with everything in it. I understand this means that all physical life forms, angels and Jinns will taste death, but what will happens to the souls in the barzakh?
In other words presumably most of the human souls would've already been dead by the time Allah swt rolls back the universe, and so will these souls also be caused to not-exist when the day comes, prior to resurrection?
The question also applies to Heaven and Hell, will they be destroyed or will they be left alone; if not, is it because they reside in different dimensions (i.e. 1st heaven "our universe" vs. other heavens)
Hope someone will shed some light into this topic
