Alam Barzakh
« on: February 25, 2013, 02:53:39 PM »
Asalamu Alaykum Dear Brothers and Sisters

I have a question about Alam Barzakh.Allah(S.T)says in Quran Rab Al-Alameen which means God of the 2 worlds but what about Alam Barzakh where when we die we stay there until the day of judgment and then again we resurrect and after that we go to the other world
so there will be 3 worlds,this world that we are living in,Alam Barzakh and the other world which we will stay there forever
can anyone explain this to me please?

Wa Salamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatu Jamee'an

Barzakh: Linguistically, “Barzakh” means a veil, barrier or partition between two things. Ibn Abbas (radhi allahu anhu) defines Barzakh as, a Hijab (a partition of veil). Adh-Dhahhak (a Tab’ieen scholar of Tafseer) says: ‘Barzakh is the stage between this world and the Hereafter.’[al-Qurtubi’s Tafseer, vol.12, p.150.] Al-Qurtubi, in his exposition on these various interpretations states: ‘The Barzakh is a barrier between two things. It is the stage between this world and the other world - from the time of death until the time of Resurrection. Thus, whoever dies enters the Barzakh”[ al-Qurtubi’s Tafseer, vol.12, p.150]  All these various explanations point to one underlined fact, that the soul after having separated from its worldly body, enters into a realm behind which there is a barrier forbidding any return.
