عنوان مقاله [English]
The immortality of Soul is an issue tied up to one fundamental doctrine of Abrahamic Religions (particularly Islam and Christianity), i.e. the life after death. One of the theories about the perpetuity of soul is immortality in terms of reincarnation; in its celebrated term, it carries two meanings at least:
1- The journey of soul through the cycle of reincarnation of bodies. 2- reincarnation in the framework of bodily resurrection. That is to say, our souls would adopt a physical body in the hereafter life appropriate to it and similar to that of this life.
Our method is descriptive-analytic and reference to main texts and holy scriptures of the two religions. In what follows, the author has demonstrated that Islam and Christianity are unanimous in the rejection of the cycle of reincarnation, both proposed the theory of resurrection, instead. However, the literal meaning of many verses of the Bible and the Qur’an and narrated traditions from prophets and their successors suggest that bodily resurrection will happen in the form of elemental body i.e. in the structure of corporeal reincarnation.
