Near-death Experiences: Afterlife from an Islamic perspective (Paperback)
A near-death experience (NDE) is a profound personal experience associated with death or impending death.
When positive, such experiences may encompass a variety of sensations including detachment from the body, feelings of levitation, total serenity, security, warmth, the experience of absolute dissolution, and the presence of a light.
When negative, such experiences may include sensations of anguish and distress.
Islam teaches that there is life after death, and this is known as Akhirah.
In Islam, it is Allah (God) who decides when a person dies.
Those who have performed more good deeds than bad will enter Jannah, or Paradise. Jannah is a place described as a 'garden of everlasting bliss' and a 'home of peace'. In Jannah, there will be no sickness, pain, or sadness.
Those who have performed more bad deeds than goodwill enters Jahannam or Hell. This is a place of physical and spiritual suffering.
