    Well once you die, you are in a deep sleep. According to the Bible you are conscious of nothing at all. (Ecclesiastes 9:5) Your body just simply returns back to the dust. (Genesis 3:19)

    However, death is not just the end. You sleep until Jesus resurrects you according to John 5:28,29.

    No to an unknown place, but right here on earth. Once the earth has been cleaned up and all the wicked people will be removed (Psalms 37:9-11,29) Then we will have the hope of seeing our dead loved ones again. The earth will be peaceful, and only meek righteous people will be here. Then we will have the prospect of living here forever on earth free of sickness and tragedy.

    When I am about the die, I sincerely hope I have the presence of mind to come up with a great exit line, like Oscar Wilde's "Either that wallpaper goes, or I do."

    Someone will have to pay between $7,000.00 and $10,000.00 for a decent funeral for you. Hopefully, you left enough insurance to pay for it all.

    If you leave a will, your estate will have to go into probate. The person you left everything you possessed will have to pay a lawyer about $1250.00 and wait six months to take possession of any real estate.

    If you leave no will, your heirs will fight over your possessions and have to hire lawyers.

    You sleep through it all and the lawyers and the funeral home laugh all the way to the bank.

  • I can't answer this question in a metaphysical explanation; I don't know. Physically, one would lose consciousness and all other aspects of self.

    You die, that's it.

    Scriptures say:

    After King Solomon observed that the living know that they will die, he wrote: “As for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all.” He then enlarged on that basic truth by saying that the dead can neither love nor hate and that “there is no work nor devising nor knowledge nor wisdom in [the grave].” (Ecclesiastes 9:5, 6, 10) Similarly, Psalm 146:4 says that when a man dies, “his thoughts do perish.” We are mortal and do not survive the death of our body. The life we enjoy is like the flame of a candle. When the flame is put out, it does not go anywhere. It is simply gone.

    Jesus Christ spoke about the condition of the dead. He did so with regard to Lazarus, a man whom he knew well and who had died. Jesus told his disciples: “Lazarus our friend has gone to rest.” The disciples thought that Jesus meant that Lazarus was resting in sleep, recovering from an illness. They were wrong. Jesus explained: “Lazarus has died.” (John 11:11-14) Notice that Jesus compared death to rest and sleep. Lazarus was neither in heaven nor in a burning hell. He was not meeting angels or ancestors. Lazarus was not being reborn as another human. He was at rest in death, as though in a deep sleep without dreams. Other scriptures also compare death to sleep. For example, when the disciple Stephen was stoned to death, the Bible says that he “fell asleep.” (Acts 7:60) Similarly, the apostle Paul wrote about some in his day who had “fallen asleep” in death.—1 Corinthians 15:6.

    the journey after death;

    Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam who passed away in 632, related:

    “Gabriel came to me and said, ‘O Muhammad, live as you wish, for you shall eventually die. Love whom you desire, for you shall eventually depart. Do what you please, for you shall pay. Know that the night-prayer[1] is the honor of a believer, and his pride is being independant on others.’” (Silsilah al-Saheehah)

    When we die, we will not lose consciousness in the sense of a soul which separates from the body. The soul, which is an enigma for scientists, is of such a nature that when it parts from the body, the body chemistry immediately begins to decay and returns to its constituent substances with no more sense left in the body at all.

    Is the soul also destroyed? Is it so dependent on the body that it must live in a constant bond with the body?

    According to Islam, it is true that in the case of other animals when the body dies, life ends.

    In the case of humans, when life ends the body dies, not the soul.

    The soul is only mentioned in connection with human beings not in relation to animals. The body dying or life ending is one and the same thing.

    In case of human beings the word soul (rooh) is used and this has developed to a degree that it has the capability of becoming independent entity in itself, a spiritual form which can live after the separation. What is the nature of that form?

    We don't know much about it, but this much, at least, the scientists have discovered is that energy bundles can survive as energy bundles. Previously, they used to rubbish the belief in souls, but they now admit that what they have discovered leads us to the possibility of some sort of human energy living in an organised form as separated from the physical existence of man.

    That is what will happen in the first instance. The soul will have a consciousness of some sort.

    In the first appearance before God, it will be adjudged briefly, and it will know from then on in which direction it is going to develop.

    Further development of the soul will require aeons of time, in which it will develop in such way that a body will be created from within that soul and that body will give birth to a soul. That is to say a separation will be made in that existence so that a centre of thinking, a centre of entity, will be created around that part of the soul, which in comparison will appear to be material, but it will not be material. So it is only a matter of degrees.

    God is the ultimate of spiritual refinement.

    So all those who happen to be at subsequent smaller level or a cruder level, cannot conceive exactly the spiritual nature of God which defies form. But it does exist and that existence is proved through the works of God, beyond that we cannot reach.

    But we have some experience about the soul, here (in this world), which can lead us to believe in a phenomenon which may occur after our death.

    This is experienced in two ways. One way is through the dreams. In dreams, things happen which appear to be real, but they defy the natural laws of our daily experience. We can walk through walls; we can see things of the past; we ca experience being in countries which we have never visited and yet feel, during the dream, as if every thing is real. We can meet our dear ones who have died and enjoy meeting them and talking to them.

    As one is dreaming, one really believes that things are exactly as they are happening in any physical form, yet nothing is created. Something like that will happen to the soul but this event will have a quality, not exactly the same, but similar to that of our new identity within our dreams.

    The founder of the Ahmadiyya Community, Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, the Promised Messiah (as), builds this subject further in his great historic book, The Philosophy of the Teachings of Islam by reminding us that it will not just be a dream existence.

    A new creation will be formed out of the essence of man's personality which becomes separated (from his body) at the time of his death. That essence will be composed of his views, his thoughts, his attitude, his goodness, his evil, his acts of defiance of the Word of God or his obedience to the Will of God.

    All these according to the Promised Messiah, continuously make a personality within us. So an entity is born within us which we ourselves create. We create our hell or heaven without realising. But he said, one day some evil person may suddenly be awakened and he would be absolutely exasperated to realise that he has destroyed himself. What he is, is a rotten thing.

    The good people gradually gain the realisation of their nobility to such a degree that their realisation becomes the very reward of their nobility itself. So, once awakened, the human conscience creates hell for the evil people and heaven for the good people.

    In short, the Promised Messiah pointed out that this is not in vain, this is not accidental.

    This does not happen in case of animals. There is no such sense of nobility or evil actions and their consequences among the animal kingdom.

    God has specifically evolved man to such a degree that his acts would create a soul in him and his heaven and his hell would be born out his own actions. They will be given a form by the Act of God. This form will be a new creation and it will be a long time in the making. So when the last call is made, before resurrection, all human souls would have acquired a new form, a new body, a new spirit within the spiritual body, and then they would acquire the faculty of suffering, not the suffering of a physical fire, (it is a different form of suffering). It is a different type of 'fire' which we sometimes experience through extreme repentance, sense of shame or sense of exposure of our crimes.

    In short this is what is going to happen to us after our death. While we live we should try to create a healthier soul within ourselves, a healthier soul which can only be created if we become true within.

    In the end let me quote the words of an earlier questioner, '. .... if we achieve a pure heart, such a pure heart will be saved from the hell', and in the words of the Promised Messiah:

    `Fire it is no doubt, but all such people will be saved from fire who have true love of God in their hearts'.

    So, the final analysis, purity of heart or love of God is one and the same thing. God bless you.
