After the death Allah will demand an account of all of your good and bad actions on the day of judgement then He will decide what to do with you .
Whether to put you in heaven or hell !

Which was put to words by a man, therefore flawed, along with the christian bible. I say this because it's said that Jehovah/Allah is the only perfect being, but the bible and quran was written by man. Since man is flawed, his actions are subject to judgement. And since man is prone to lies and misinformation, it can be said the what is written in the bible/quran is false. I'm not questioning your faith in a higher power, if it's helped you be a better human being, then so be it.

Quran is only book without any mistakes !
before its revelation men has changed the teachings of other sky books but it is free of mistakes !
Allah says in Quran that He has revealed this book and He is its defender !!!
this book is universal and presents code of life not only for Muslims but for all human beings :D. I hope you understood :)

not to sound ignorent but is it a single file line to "get in"? millions of people die every day. how long until it's your turn?
Report as
But unless Allah/Jehovah came down and put the word to paper in front of the whole world to see, we can deduce that what is written is flawed. I'm not questioning the fact that the bible/quran is a great guideline to live by, just that what is said within might not be the truth of Jehovah/Allah's word

Yes, religious teaching propose that we go to Limbo before Judgement at which we will go before the Creator and Satan to atone for our sins before being reborn in Paradise on Earth or returning to Limbo for eternity as punishment for not following the teachings of Jesus or Muhammad. And Satan isn't the devil or Lucifer, Satan is the angel that acts as a prosecuting attorney in Heaven for your actions on Earth

No, that was not my question. I am asking about muslims who believe the teachings of Quran and Islam like yourself. How good is good enough to go to heaven? Have you done enough for example, or does anyone ever know for sure they have done enough good that it balances out the bad? Or is it a kind of mystery that is only resolved when you finally die and find out. That's my question. Thanks.
Report as
No one knows that how much good actions will balance their bad deeds !
You are right it is the mystery which will be divulge by Allah only on the day of judgement !
If you have devoted your life for good things but have done one sin which is not acceptable to Allah , you will be given punishment in hell then after its completion Allah will put you in heaven !
This world is the examination room where every one IS performing THEIR PERFORMANCE but no one thinks of result ! The result will be given by Allah on the day of judgement ,!

No, agnostics are a 'wait and see' type and 'Oh, Lord Jesus, please don't let this happen to me!'

I'm a little more scientific minded behind creation. Something caused the big bang to happen, to change the universe from pure energy to mass and matter. I don't believe in little grey men in flying saucers or giant engineers on LV-223 but don't doubt the possibility of parallel realities because ancient peoples did see something happening in their world that lead them to tell tales of religious experiences. At this point, parallel universes could explain paranormal phenomenon and ghost stories.

There's also theories that time is not linear but existing all at once with every possible outcome of every decision or scenario existing at once.

@esabel...thanks for your response about not knowing how much good is good enough to get to heaven, and that it is a mystery until you die. It is very different from Christianity in that way, and different from what is in the New Testament and I can see how very hard that would be. Christianity is different because it is based on assurance because we believe it is the work of God and not based on the balance scales of good works vs bad deeds. We believe it is the reason Jesus came and died to pay for our sin. We are not able to pay for it ourselves. We would say, there is not enough good we could ever put on the other side of the scale. You probably know all that already. Thanks. G

@JulieBuckner no offense, by any means. But by definition, Agnosticism is 'wait and see'

Agnosticism is the view that the existence or non-existence of any deity is unknown and possibly unknowable. More specifically, agnosticism is the view that the truth values of certain claims—especially claims about the existence or non-existence of any deity, as well as other religious and metaphysical claims—are unknown and (so far as can be judged) unknowable.

Jesus taught with illustration's as we can see in Mathew 13:34: "all these things Jesus spoke to the crowds by illustrations. Indeed, without an illustration he would not speak to them, all those texts talk about fire what does fire do? it burns right and destroyes? if you burn a chair what will happen? it will no longer be a chair! All those scriptures are talking about death and people that know the truth but don't listen, those people once they die they die and don't have the hope of Resurrection, all those texts don't go in hand with Ecc 9:5, that the dead are not conscious of nothing, they don't go to heaven or hell, they are simply resting like if they were in a deep deep sleep, so think of this if Jesus said what is in ECC then why would he right about fire? he was talking with illustrations! and the meaning of hell is tomb or place of rest

In Islam, the life is to worship Allah. The term "Worship" covers all acts of obedience to Allah.
The true Muslim sticks to this purpose throughout all the stages of his life, whether he is a child, adolescent, adult, or an old man.
Worshipping Allah makes life purposeful and meaningful, especially within the framework of Islam. According to Islam this worldly life is just a short stage of our life. Then there is the other life. The boundary between the first and second life is the death stage, which is a transitory stage to the second life. The type of life in the second stage a person deserves depends on his deeds in the first life. At the end of the death stage comes the day of judgment. On this day, Allah rewards or punishes people according to their deeds in the first life.
Words I love to Conclude.
It is time to find out about Islam. It is time to find out about the truth by using your own Mind.
A Time for Thought.
A Time for Change.
A Time for Action.

Allah says :

( 100 ) That I might do righteousness in that which I left behind." No! It is only a word he is saying; and behind them is a barrier until the Day they are resurrected.

( 101 ) So when the Horn is blown, no relationship will there be among them that Day, nor will they ask about one another.

( 102 ) And those whose scales are heavy [with good deeds] - it is they who are the successful.

( 103 ) But those whose scales are light - those are the ones who have lost their souls, [being] in Hell, abiding eternally.

( 104 ) The Fire will sear their faces, and they therein will have taut smiles.

( 105 ) [It will be said]. "Were not My verses recited to you and you used to deny them?"

( 106 ) They will say, "Our Lord, our wretchedness overcame us, and we were a people astray.

( 111 ) Indeed, I have rewarded them this Day for their patient endurance - that they are the attainers [of success]."

( 112 ) [Allah] will say, "How long did you remain on earth in number of years?"

( 113 ) They will say, "We remained a day or part of a day; ask those who enumerate."

( 114 ) He will say, "You stayed not but a little - if only you had known.

( 115 ) Then did you think that We created you uselessly and that to Us you would not be returned?"

( 116 ) So exalted is Allah, the Sovereign, the Truth; there is no deity except Him, Lord of the Noble Throne.

( 117 ) And whoever invokes besides Allah another deity for which he has no proof - then his account is only with his Lord. Indeed, the disbelievers will not succeed.

First our immaterial soul and spirit will be separated from our physical body. Second, we will immediately receive the judgment that will determine our eternal destiny. Those who have trusted in Christ's payment on the cross for our sins will enter into eternal life in the presence of God. 2 Corinthians 5:8 states, "We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord." There will be no delay in a state of unconsciousness many call "soul sleep." We will immediately be in God's presence. There is no second chance and there is no cycle of reincarnation. Our eternal destiny is determined by the decision we make for Christ here on earth.

According to the Bible in Ecclesiastes 9:5,6 we read: "For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all, neither do they anymore have wages, because the remembrance of them has been forgotten. Also, their love and their hate and their jealousy have already perished, and they have no portion anymore to time indefinite in anything that has to be done under the sun."

These verses tell us that when we die it is like we are in deep sleep. We are completely unaware of our surroundings, our last memory is from the last moment that we were awake.

However, the Bible gives us hope for the future in John 5:28,29: "The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment."

As the Catechism says, death puts an end to human life as the time open to either accepting or rejecting the divine grace manifested in Christ. In other words there are no opportunities to grow in holiness, no second chances. After we die we immediately stand before the judgement seat of Jesus and He will reward us based on how we have lived our lives, on how we have responded to the blessings and graces He gave us. This is called the particular judgement, because it refers to each of us individually. If we have died in the state of grace, we will go to Heaven or spend some time in purgatory. If we have died in a state of mortal sin, we will immediately go to Hell. Many of our culture are afraid of death. Why? Probably because they do not really grasp the meaning of life. We need to prepare ourselves for death by living our lives as Jesus calls us to, by loving Him with all our strength and loving our neighbors as ourselves. Many of the great saints longed for their time on earth to come to an end so that they could go home to be with the Lord. They were unafraid of death because they understood the purpose of life and lived it: They loved.

Hope this helps! - ManOfKnowledge

Just like anp1215 said, Ecclesiastes 9:5 says that the dead are conscious of nothing at all. So we are in a sleep like state when we die. But it's comforting to know that our Creator, Jehovah God, has promised for us a resurrection in the future. Revelation 21:4 says "and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."
This is a beautiful promise for the future, and it's comforting to know that death does not end it all.

You said you want the truth, not opinion? The only real truth would have to come from the one who created life. That truth is found in God's word the Bible. examine it for yourself.

Gen. 3:19: “In the sweat of your face you will eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken. For dust you are and to dust you will return.”
Eccl. 9:10: “All that your hand finds to do, do with your very power, for there is no work nor devising nor knowledge nor wisdom in Sheol [“the grave,” KJ, Kx; “the world of the dead,” TEV], the place to which you are going.”

Condition of the dead?
Eccl. 9:5: “The living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all.”

Ps. 146:4: “His spirit goes out, he goes back to his ground; in that day his thoughts [“thoughts,” KJ, 145:4 in Dy; “all his thinking,” NE; “plans,” RS, NAB] do perish.”

Ecclesiastes 9:5 says that the dead are simply dead and they don't have conscious of anything, they are like in a deep deep sleep. That scripture gives us a sigh of relief because we know that they didn't go to suffer in a hot place or play the harp in heaven, they are simply sleeping and not suffering or enjoying themselves, but the bible also gives us a good hope, John 5:28, 29 states: "Do not marvel of this because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs (graves) will hear there voice and come out." Yes! we can have the opportunity to see our loved ones again, but not in heaven but on earth, and not in the sad conditions we are in but in peace like Psalms 37:10,11 sais: "And just a little while longer and the wicked one will be no more; And you will certainly give attention to his place, and he will not be. But the meek ones (good ones) will posses the EARTH, and they will indeed find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace." What a wonderful promise and hope! It's not a human or powerful governor that promises to see our loved ones again in peaceful circumstances but our loving and all powerful creator

Allah would send the grave angels to come into your grave they would ask you some questions if you answer those questions right you would be treated with care and respect
but if do not answer those questions correctly than the angels will punishment that you will never forget. you will get punished until The Day Of Judgement. This was said in the holy Quran.



And trust me
this is the truth

Hence why the Quran is not so popular among Christians...if you don't answer correctly you get a punishment you'll never forget? AKA Hell? Grave angels? One big judgement day that has yet to come?? Sounds nuttier than a fruitcake...With all do respect, sounds like a lot of fear based religion...

it is not fearful if you are a good person
and yes many Christians know of the religion but you don't maybe

At Ecclesiastes 9:5 The Bible talks about how we as living people are conscious of the fact that one day we will die but dead people are not conscious of anything at all. The dead are basically in the state of a deep sleep and they have nothing to do with life anymore which is brought out in Ecclesiastes 9:10. Jesus many times talked about how people were "asleep" in death. At death you just go into a deep sleep.

After the body dies the soul/spirit which is eternal but not like most people think. It will continue on in the next cycle. What is the next cycle, well that depends on you and what you still need in order to grow. This experience/life isn't the end. Energy doesn't die it just changes form and continues on.

Ecclesiastes 9:5 says, "For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all." They are not in any pain. They're in a state of inactivity.

However, the Bible does promise us that we will be able to see our dead loved ones again. Acts 24:15 says, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.”

For mor information on this topic, I suggest reading, “Real Hope for Your Loved Ones Who Have Died” found here:
http://www.jw.org/en/publications/books/bible-teach/real-hope-for-your-loved-ones-who-have-died/

I hope this helps!

Jehovah God gives us a clear answer to that question in his written word, the Bible.
Eccl. 9:5,6 states, "For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all, neither do they anymore have wages, because the remembrance of them has been forgotten. Also, their love and their hate and their jealousy have already perished, and they have no portion anymore to time indefinite in anything that has to be done under the sun." Psalms 146:4 states, "His spirit goes out, he goes back to his ground; In that day his thoughts do perish.''
What the Bible teaches about the condition of the dead is comforting. As we have seen, the dead do not suffer pain or heartache. There is no reason to be afraid of them, for they cannot harm us. They do not need our help, and they cannot help us. We cannot speak with them, and they cannot speak with us. Many religious leaders falsely claim that they can help those who have died, and people who believe such leaders give them money. But knowing the truth protects us from being deceived by those who teach such lies.

Contrary to many religious beliefs, after one dies they will just lie unconscious in the grave. Read Ecclesiastes 9:5

You know what? Captain Kirk says that "why does god need a star ship". Stop quoting: it doesn't help your point. The bible contains many things like talking snakes, talking donkeys, dragons, witches, wizards, giants, unicorns; endorses slavery, genocide, cannibalism, etc; and provides inaccurate statements such as suggesting that three flicks(oh i'm sorry, its 7) of bird blood will cure you of skin diseases and your house of mold. Quoting only demonstrates that you can pick and choose what you like; it lends no credence to your argument.

Now on to the original inquiry. You simply cease to exist. Do you ever remember falling asleep? That transition between falling asleep and waking up/dreaming? Do you remember when you were given anesthesia, what being "under" was like? That is exactly like death. Your brain may release dopamine, serotonin or DMT, causing haulinactions. There is no "soul", just the transmitting of neurochemicals which result in thoughts, emotions, memories etc... It may be harsh, but its the truth. You can live in a fantasy world with sky gods and space sperm, or you can chose reality and accept the inevitable. Even more shocking is the fact that protons my have half lives and the the universe will tear apart in trillions of years. So the best advice is to live your life to the fullest and experience as much as you can.

The Holy Bilble said that when a men is death he is a sleep.longer then night sleep.I will explain you in easy way.when a person is death God take his breath that he have given him.The death men do not know noting because he is a sleep.when you are a sleep you don't know noting right!as well when he die he don't know notting just getting a deep sleep and don't even have a dream.and as he is made by dust his body return to dust!You may say that" why you say he is a sleep"?Because when you are a sleep you awake a gain in the right time(morning).So all the people in this world will be a wake when the second coming of Jesus Christ!only in that time a godly people will be awake from there thom and will be taken to heaven!But the sinner will be still remain in there thom or in there death place.after the Godly people were taken to heaven they will a wake in badly.that day will be so sadful for them.and the everlasting fire will be drawn from heaven and they will be burn until death.In that day the sinner will be not death easly because God will make them suffer for there sin!That is call HELL!so my friend do you want to get to HEAVEN or HELL that your choice.

In the beginning when God created Adam & Eve He shed light on what happens at death!! Gen. 3:19 says talking to Adam & Eve "In the sweat of your face you will eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken. For dust you are and to dust you will return." This is also in harmony with what is said at Ps. 146:4 were it says "His sprint goes out, he goes BACK to the ground, in that day his thoughts/plans/thinking do perish."
