Every soul shall have a taste of death

babunftccae8d09

Every soul shall have

A taste of death:

And We test you

By evil and by good

By way of trial.

To Us must ye return.

The soul does not die, but when it separates from the body at the death of the body, the soul gets a taste of death. In our life of probation on this earth, our virtue and faith are tested by many things: some are tested by calamities, some by the good things of this life. If we prove our true mettle, we pass our probation with success. In any case all must return to Allah, and then will our life be appraised of its true value.

(Surah 21: 35, translation & comentary Yusuf Ali)
