Which enters paradise? Soul, body or both?
Let us look at Noble Verses 17:98-99 "That is their recompense, because they rejected Our Signs. And said, 'When we are reduced to bones and broken dust, should we really be raised up (to be) a new creation?
See they not that Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth, has power to create the like of them? Only He has decreed a term appointed, of which there is no doubt. But the unjust refuse (to recieve it) except with ingratitude."
Let us look at Noble Verses 75:3-4 "Does man think that We cannot assemble his bones? Nay, We are able to put together in perfect order the very tips of his fingers."
Let us look at Noble Verses 89:27-30 "(To the righteous soul will be said:) O (thou) soul, in (complete) rest and satisfaction ! 'come back thou to thy Lord-Well pleased (thyself), and well-pleasing unto Him! 'Enter thou, then, among my devotees! 'Yea, enter thou my Heaven!'"
Let us look at Noble Verse 31:28 "And your creation or your resurrection is in no wise but as an individual soul: For Allah is He Who Hears and sees (all things)."
There is no contradiction in the above Noble Verses !.
In Noble Verses 13:5, 17:98-99, 20:55, 34:7 and 75:3-4, Allah Almighty clearly Says that He will recreate our bodies in Judgement day or in the day of ressurection.
For Noble Verses 89:27-30 and 31:28, when our bodies ressurect from desolved sand in the day of ressurection and become fresh bodies again, we will live in those bodies for a period of 50,000 years until the very last person gets his verdict on whether to enter heaven or hell. See Noble Verse 70:4, which referes to the Day of Judgment, where our judgment will take 50 thousand human years to finish before the very last person of mankind enters either heaven or hell. The phrase "Day of Judgment" in Arabic doesn't mean one day. It means multiple days (50,000 years).
When a person recieves his verdict, if he recieves hell, then he and his body shall enter hell where his body will pay for all the sins it commited along with his soul by feeling the pain of the body as we do now in our current life. If he recieves heaven, then he and his body (sould and body) will enter paradise where he shall live in it for eternity in full pleasure, see Noble Verses 76:13,17, 47:16-17 and 55:56, where Allah Almighty explains some of the physical pleasure that we will have in paradise.
Note: In Noble Verses 89:27-30 and 31:28 above, Allah Almighty talks to the righteous souls promissing them heaven, but doesn't state that only the soul will enter the heaven !. Throughout the Noble Quran, Allah Almighty sometimes refers to us or calls to us by our spirits/souls only. However, this doesn't negate our bodies. See Noble Verses 91:7-10 and 75:1-15 where Allah Almighty refers to us by our souls first.
