“Seeing death as the end of life is like seeing the horizon as the end of the ocean.” – David Searls
Since time immemorial, the question of the afterlife has perplexed the mind of the human being. Is our experience after death one of eternal nothingness, or one of spiritual fulfillment and nearness to God? Is this world even the real world, or do we simply exist on earth as travellers, awaiting the time in which our senses are heightened and our faculties enhanced? The concept of the afterlife is steeped in mystery, but Islamic thought sheds great light on its existence, its nature, and what we as human beings can do to prepare. This presentation, entitled ‘Life after life’ discusses these issues with reference to the Holy Qur’an.
