Islam interprets death as the transfer of man from one stage of life to another.
According to Islam, humans possess eternal life, which know no end.
Death which is the separation of the spirit from the body, introduces man to another stage of life in which felicity or disappointment depends upon good or evil deeds in the stage of life before death.
The Holy Prophet (sas) has said: “You have been created for subsistence, not annihiliation. What happens is that you will be transferred from one house to another.”
