In Response To: Confusion (Muhammad Rafi Karachi)

The Qur’an does not mention the presence of ‘soul’. The term Nafs (‘Self’, 'Ego', 'Personality', 'I-am-ness', 'Me') comes closest. It is in a raw form when we are born, and then it is up to us for its refinement and development as we grow, to achieve self-actualization.

7:172 and 7:173 verses establish that all communities have received their Messengers from Allah with the Word that Allah is their Lord and to remain conscious of Him. Excuses for ignorance of Message will not be accepted on the Day of Judgment.

~ignorantia legis neminem excusat~
Ignorance of law excuses no one.

21:7 For, before you We sent none but men to whom We granted Revelation. So, (tell the deniers), 'Ask the followers of previous reminders if you know not.' [12:109, 16:43]

7:52 We have given them a Book of knowledge that explains the guidance in full detail. It is a mercy for those who accept it. (It has the Power to change Hellish societies into paradise on earth.)

7:94 We sent no Prophet to a town without Our Law of Requital trying them with adversity and tribulation in order that they might become humble.
7:95 Then We changed their plight for the better until they became affluent. Then they said, 'Even our forefathers were touched by suffering and affluence.' We seized them all of a sudden when they least expected it. [They thought that hardships and prosperity were just a matter of chance. To them the requital appeared sudden, but unjust systems insidiously move toward disaster]
