Going Deeper–Afterlife for Jews and Muslims

jewish-afterlifeJews believe that at the point of death the soul will blame the body for its actions. Judgement will take place after the coming of the Messiah. Although many Jews believe that they will be punished or rewarded after death for the way in which they have lived their lives, there is no clear teaching about heaven. For the Jew the soul goes to a place of rest.

Islam teaches that Muslims have both a physical body and a soul. The soul lives on after death and waits to be judged. Akhirah is the Muslim term used for life after death. Muslims believe that, on the Day of Judgement, they will be judged for their actions in life.
