In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Humans: A composite of body and Soul
It is important to understand that humans are composed of outer physical bodies and inner spirit (Rouh). The outer shell (body) is composed of materials from this earth while the inner spirit (Rouh) is not from elements of this earth rather from the command of Allah (SWT). These two components are nourished from the same source from which their initial elements of composition came from. Therefore, the body needs to be sustained and nourished from elements which come from the earth while the spirit (Rouh) body needs to be sustained and nourished from elements which are specifically recommended by Allah (SWT) and Sayyidina Rasul-ullah (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam).
This is the greatest truth which escapes the hearts and minds of those who don’t believe in Allah (SWT) and unfortunately Muslims of today are also looking in the wrong place for spiritual nourishment and inner peace and contentment.
