Communicating with Spirits through Séances [1]

What is the Islamic position with respect to bringing back the spirits of the dead? When one studies the texts related to this point, he will conclude with certainty that such an act is absolutely impossible. Allah سبحانه و تعالى has informed us that the spirit is from the unseen which man cannot possibly fathom or reach.

Souls of the Dead Meeting with People Who are Awake

posted by Seifeddine-M on 12th November 2014 - 0 comments
It is a common concept among some people and cultures that the souls of the dead can and do come back to the earth and converse with the living (who are awake). In order to assess the validity of such a claim it is essential to explore the various literature relating to this issue. From the sources available, research can only lead to a conclusion that it is neither possible nor proven that the souls of the dead return to the world of the living, meet with them, converse and so on. This conclusion is based on the texts of the divinely revealed law, and the following evidence from the Qur'aan and the Sunnah clearly affirms such a stand.

Remembrance of Death and Restraint of Wishes

posted by Seifeddine-M on 16th December 2010 - 0 comments
Allah, the Exalted, says: [b]"Everyone shall taste death. And only on the Day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full. And whoever is removed away from the Fire and admitted to Jannah, he indeed is successful. The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception (a deceiving thing).'' [/b](3:185) [color=red]"No person knows what he will earn tomorrow, and no person knows in what land he will die...''[/b] (31:34) [b]"...when their term comes, neither can they delay nor can they advance it an hour (or a moment).''[/b] (16:61) [b]"O you who believe! Let not your properties or your children divert you from the remembrance of Allah. And whosoever does that, then they are the losers. And spend (in charity) of that with which We have provided you, before death comes to one of you, and he says: `My Rubb! If only You would give me respite for a little while (i.e., return to the worldly life), then I should give Sadaqah (i.e., Zakat) of my wealth, and be among the righteous [i.e., perform Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah) and other good deeds].' And Allah grants respite to none when his appointed time (death) comes. And Allah is All-Aware of what you do.''[/b] (63:9-11)
