A Secret of Allah’s ﷻ Secrets

Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm: ‘قُلِ الرُّوحُ مِنْ أَمْرِ رَبِّي’, ‘Quli r-Rūĥu Min ‘Amri Rabbī’, ‘The soul is by command of my Lord.’ (Qur’ān 17:85). The soul is a secret among the secrets of Allah ﷻ, says Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla in Qur’an ‘Azimu sh-Shan. What is a soul? Only Allah ﷻ knows what it is.

Allah ﷻ created souls and everyone has a soul. The soul is for living creatures and people. No need to look into how it is. However, its duty in this world is when Allah ﷻ blows it into the body of a person while in the mother’s womb after 40 days, it stays with him until he dies. And then this soul is captured. Azra’il ‘alayhi s-salam takes it. Based on the deeds everyone did: if they belong to hell, all souls wait in hell until their owners come. If they belong to paradise, the souls wander in paradise. It is like this.

There are silly people now who want to interfere in everything they know and don’t know. Also, there is a group who says that the soul leaves a person and enters another one. They call it reincarnation or something strange. There is not such a thing. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is not in need to place them from one to another.

When the soul comes back on Judgment Day, it remains in the body forever either in paradise or in hell. Therefore, saying: “It will leave you and enter an ant. It will leave the ant and enter a rabbit. And it will enter a human after the rabbit” and so on, there is not such a thing. It is impossible logically as well. There are billions of people. If it was so, that wouldn’t be enough.

The soul is a secret among the secrets of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. As we said, when Allah ﷻ created us and gave us a soul, its duty lasts forever. It will leave us for some time after we die. And after the resurrection, the same soul will be given back and will stay in the same body. It will be brought back to life from earth. It will be questioned. And then they will be together forever.

May Allah ﷻ make our souls from those of paradise, because the soul will be questioned equally for the badness people do. And it will be punished. May Allah ﷻ protect us. May Allah ﷻ protect us and not separate us from Iman.

People nowadays think these things are simple. They say things as they like, “No, I accept this. I don’t accept that. I want this. I don’t want that”. This is not up to your pleasure. It is the order of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. He ﷻ does as He ﷻ likes. And He ﷻ doesn’t do what He ﷻ doesn’t like.

Yet, they say our souls enter animals and so on. Apart from that, even animals don’t like what people nowadays do. And they are so happy with their condition, they say “Fortunately, Allah ﷻ didn’t create us as humans and we didn’t go on these silly ways.” Even they are are happy with their states. May Allah ﷻ give guidance to people insha’Allah. And may He ﷻ give us strong Iman.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
