What Does The Quran Say About The Afterlife?

The Quran is considered by many to be the direct word of God, but how does it explain what happens after death? There are numerous references to the afterlife throughout the Qur’an, including descriptions of Heaven and Hell, but what do these verses mean?

A perfect blend of traditional Islamic learning and modern convenience, our free online academy will guide you through key aspects of the Qur’an and how to interpret them properly.

Why would Allah want us to read about Jannah and Jahannam?

Since most of us, at least in western society, are non-Muslims, reading about heaven and hell isn’t something we are comfortable with. Some people think that if they ask Allah for forgiveness and refrain from any major sins, then they will be forgiven upon death and enter paradise. But isn’t there more to it than that? In reality, everyone who does not believe in Islam and does not live according to its laws is going to go to hell.

How can we prove such a thing as fact? Well, if we look at what Allah has said about both Jannah (paradise) and Jahannam (hell), then you will realize how very great a sin you have committed by rejecting Him.

In what way does knowing the details help us avoid their pitfalls?

Knowing what lies ahead will only make it more difficult to resist its temptations. That’s why Allah only mentioned a few details about heaven, and that’s also why He didn’t mention any details about hell. Don’t ask Allah to describe your ultimate reward to fill you with hope or your ultimate punishment to deter you from evil; instead, focus on how much you can gain right now by fulfilling His commands and how much you stand to lose by neglecting them.

Why was paradise created in an ‘Everlasting Life’?

As Prophet Muhammad said, He who created death and life to test which of you is best in deed. This is proof that when we die, we are reborn. Once we’re good enough as a soul, Allah gives us eternal life and lets us enjoy paradise. If our sins were bad enough, Allah will behead us and let us rot in our graves until Judgement Day. We can make up for sin by doing good deeds after death, helping others, and spreading love. As Muslims, we follow what’s written in Quran about heaven as well as what’s been stated by Prophet Muhammad on his sayings (hadith).

Is there anything we should be doing on Earth before we get there?

Every day we are presented with a choice. We can either live for ourselves, or we can live for something bigger than ourselves. Islam, like Judaism and Christianity before it, puts forth many answers to what is commonly referred to as the meaning of life.

For Muslims, one such answer is that we should be good stewards of creation so that when we pass on from it, our works will remain behind us, and people will benefit from them forever. Thus, Islamic teachings suggest that your aim in life should be one of constant striving and service to humanity—not just for yourself but for everyone else as well.

How can I improve my chance of getting into paradise?

This is a question that many young Muslims have. However, I am sad to say that no one can get into paradise except those who enter it by their own deeds, either good or bad. If a person enters Paradise by Allah’s will, then he will be given all of its blessings and rewards that we have been promised in our religion.

If a person does not enter paradise on his own, no one will guide him, and he will not be guided to any other place but Hellfire. A perfect example from Islam would be Prophet Muhammad (saws). He was a man who struggled for his faith more than anyone else. 

He was persecuted and tortured for 13 years before being granted victory over Mecca. But after that victory, he continued to struggle for his religion until he died at age 63. Yet despite all of these struggles, every time Prophet Muhammad (saws) went to sleep, Jibreel came down with a new revelation from Allah telling him what needed to be done next. And if you look at how many revelations were sent down during his lifetime, it amounts to thousands upon thousands!

Why would Allah allow some Muslims into paradise without being good people?

According to Islam, it is up to Allah, not man, whether a person enters paradise or hell. Man’s only responsibility is to live according to Allah’s teachings. If he does his best and believes in his heart that he will be rewarded for doing good deeds, then he may gain entry into heaven; otherwise, if he gives in to sin and believes that he will be rewarded for it even though it goes against Allah’s teachings, then he may end up in hell.

Those who are allowed into paradise do so because they made their journey through life according to God’s rules—that is all it takes. It does not matter what religion a person has practiced during his lifetime: if one has lived their life by Allah’s laws, then they are welcome in heaven.


Paradise is a beautiful place where, in addition to receiving all of our wishes, we will never get sick, become old or die. There will be neither sadness nor suffering in paradise. All inhabitants of paradise live there eternally in peace and happiness. We should consider that paradise is real as Allah, who created everything and knows everything, has promised it. Allah said: He has prepared for those who believe and do good works beautiful dwelling places in gardens beneath which rivers flow (Chapter 18).
