About The Book

This important book covers an area about which most people have very little knowledge but which is, at the same time, of vital interest to all human beings. It outlines what happens to the human soul from the moment of death until the arrival of the Day of Judgment.

It describes the death process itself, the exact relationship of the soul to the body, the states of the soul after it leaves this world, and the nature of the ongoing relationship between the dead and those who are still alive. Layla Mabrouk, an eminent, contemporary, Egyptian scholar has skillfully abridged a classic work by the great medieval scholar, Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyya who was a leading student of Ibn Taymiyya.

About The Author

Muhammad ibn Abu Bakr (also known as Ibn al-Qayyim ("The son of the principal") or Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah ("Son of the principal of the (school of) Jawziyyah")) (1292–1350 CE / 691 AH–751 AH) was an Arab Sunni Islamic jurist, commentator on the Qur'an and theologian.

Although he is sometimes referred to as "the scholar of the heart", given his extensive works pertaining to human behaviour and ethics, Ibn al-Qayyim's scholarship was focused on the sciences of Hadith and Fiqh.
