The Reality of Reincarnation

From Ahmed Al-Hassan Wiki

Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (as) was asked the following...

"Is Reincarnation true?"
"…It is true. The soul never dies."See answer from June, 2015 on BBS Forum

Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan clarified that in every age there is a return (raja) and that this time we are living in now is special because all the Prophets, Messengers, and the Pure ones are gathering in this age to support the Qaims Imam Mahdi (as) and his Vicegerent Ahmed Al-Hassan (as).

Find proofs for the fact that reincarnation is mentioned in Islam in the article Reincarnation in Islam.

Reincarnation - In The Beginning

Long ago, God gathered the Angels and commanded them to Prostrate to Adam (pbuh) but filled with too much pride and envy - Satan refused.

God told Satan and those he swayed to get out — accursed - and so began the battle between darkness and light.

Satan said to God: {My Lord! Then respite me till the time when they are raised} (15:36) and God did not accept his request: {He said: So surely you are of the respited ones till the day of the Known Time.} (15:37-38)

Imam Sadiq (pbuh) said, “So when the day of the Known Time comes, Satan and all of his followers since the creation of Adam (as) till that day, appear.”

And in this - is a huge secret revealed to us by Muhammad and the family of Muhammad (pbuta) - that we are now living in that known time, and that Satan (is) employing every evil messenger, tyrant, oppressor, and tactic he possibly can to delay this day from happening, because he knows that his end is near…

This episode states that:

  • Aba Sadiq a.s. told us that in the future, reincarnation will not just be widely accepted, but people will address one another by their previous incarnations
  • Aba Sadiq a.s. said that most of these cases of past life regression of children and adults remembering past lives are true
  • Imam Ahmad Al-Hassan confirmed that the prophets had the ability to not just send one prophet but many prophets to different times for different missions

Biblical proof for reincarnation

"Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped, and said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD. - Job 1:20-21

"Generations come and generations go, but the earth remains forever. The sun rises and the sun sets, and hurries back to where it rises. The wind blows to the south and turns to the north; round and round it goes, ever returning on its course. All streams flow into the sea, yet the sea is never full. To the place the streams come from, there they return again… What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun." – Ecclesiastes 1:4-9

"Your dead shall live; their bodies shall rise. You who dwell in the dust, awake and sing for joy. For your dew is a dew of light and the earth will give birth to the dead... " - Isaiah 26:19

Biblical proof for the reincarnation of Prophets

Christian Scriptures state that John the Baptist (pbuh) is the reincarnation of Elijah (pbuh).

In the Bible, Matthew 11:7–15, Jesus (pbuh) said:
"I tell you the truth: Among those born of women there has not risen anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it. For all the Prophets and the Law prophesied until John. And if you are willing to accept it, he is the Elijah who was to come' Whoever has ears, let them hear.”

In the Bible, John 3-12, Jesus (pbuh) also said:
"Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?
Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?
Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.
If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?"

In the gnostic document Pistis Sophia we find a closer description:
"Moreover in place of the soul of the ruler which he was appointed to receive, I found the soul of the prophet Elias in the æons of the sphere; and I took him thence, and took his soul and brought it to the Virgin of Light, and she gave it over to her receivers; they brought it to the sphere of the rulers and cast it into the womb of Elizabeth. So the power of the little Iaō, who is in the Midst, and the soul of the prophet Elias, they were bound into the body of John the Baptizer. For this cause then were ye in doubt aforetime, I when I said unto you: 'John said: I am not the Christ,' and ye said unto me: 'It standeth written in the scripture: When the Christ shall come, Elias cometh before him and maketh ready his way.' But when ye said this unto me, I said unto you: 'Elias verily is come and hath made ready all things, as it standeth written, and they have done unto him as they would.' And when I knew that ye had not understood that I had discoursed with you concerning the soul of Elias which is bound into John the Baptizer, I answered you in the discourse in openness face to face: 'If ye like to accept John the Baptizer: he is Elias, of whom I have said that he will come."

Furthermore in the gnostic gospel Pistis Sophia, Jesus (pbuh) prophecises that his diciples will come back with him (reincarnate in the end of times) and rule the world:
"And when Jesus had heard these words, he said: "Finely [said], Matthew. Now, therefore, amēn, I say unto you: When the perfect number is completed and the universe is raised hence, I will take my seat in the Treasury of the Light, and ye yourselves will sit on twelve light-powers, until we have restored all the orders of the twelve saviours to the region of the inheritances of every one of them."

Life after Death Studies, Near Death and Out of Body Experiences

It is the question of all questions: What happens to us when we die?

Is there more to us than our physical body? Will our existence continue after our body stops functioning or is our consciousness nothing but a byproduct of the complex processes in our brain?
Join us when we intend to uncover the mysteries of human consciousness

Is human consciousness a byproduct of our physical existence?

Or does our consciousness exist separate from our body?
