Universal Soul and Existence of Human Soul
• • The Universal Soul and its manifestations How souls are connected Dust Soul Plant Soul Animal Soul Human Soul Angelic Soul Universal Soul
The Muslim believe in One God (Allah) as their sustainer and creator of Soul Quran Surah Al-Isra (17: 85) Arberry They will question thee concerning the spirit. Say: ‘The Spirit is of the bidding of my Lord. You have been given of knowledge nothing except a little’ As a Shia Ismaili Nizari Muslim We believe that Allah created spirit out of nothing and it is He who is the creator of Spirit. Quran Surah Yasin (36: 12) as per Shia Ismaili Interpretation and Arbery translation“Indeed it is We who revive the dead and write what they have sent ahead 1 and their effects [which they left behind], 2 and We have figured everything in a manifest Imam. ”
Quran Surah Al-I-Imran 3: 46 -48 Arbery He shall speak to men in the cradle, and of age, and righteous he shall be. (46) ‘Lord’, said Mary, ‘How shall I have a son seeing no mortal has touched me? ” “Even so, “God said, God creates what He will. When he decrees a thing he does but says to it “Be, ” and it is. (47) and he will teach him the book, the wisdom, the Torah, and the Gospel, (48). So in reality human soul and any other soul did not exist at first but rathere was nothingness from which everything got created for which the term in Quran (Kun-fa-ya-Kun) explained above in ayat as “Be, and it is. ” So now lets go out and explore in the nature if the “Be, ” and it is - Kun faya Kun really holds true.
Mineral Soul : Each and every soil has its own special purpose. All Soils don’t allow for growth of vegetation. Genesis (2: 7): Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. Why did not God said I created him from stones ? Surah Sad (38: 71 -72): When thy Lord said to the angels, “See, I am creating a mortal of a clay. (71) When I have shaped him, and breathed My spirit in him, fall you down, bowing before him! (72). Gravel/ Stones The one who did not bow became Satan (Iblis). The same holds true to which I will come later when discussing about human and angelic soul
Because Soil has ability to absorb water, sunlight and seeds and thus in Gospel and Quran, God reminds us that Prophets are His creations and manifestations who develop due to humility: http: //www. animalplanet. com/tvshows/other/videos/fooled-by-nature-lungfish/ In Ismaili belief human soul also has to be like soil which can absorb and be humble all the times for what is given by God to him. A soil that has ability to absorb can only grow plants but not every soil grows anything here the transformation of Mineral soil to Vegetative Soil starts to occur. Quran Al-Anbiya (21: 16): We created not the heaven and the earth and whatsoever between them is, as playing; (16) So Mg, P, Si, N, O all these compounds and molecules part of mineral soul are going to be different in different places, soil p. H and everything will be different for every place and plays an important role in growth of plants.
Vegetative Soul: The minerals start to work in a very confined and silent manner. Today biological science discoveries, tissue engineering aspects and all things in nature on exploration are allowing on how these souls are working. Takwini (Mineral and Vegetative) = Meaning Silent Souls
Quranic Verse (22: 5) Arberry: O men, if you are in doubt as to the Uprising, surely We created you of dust then of a sperm-drop, then of a blood clot, then of a lump of flesh, formed and unformed that We may make clear to you. And We establish in the wombs what We will, till a stated term, then We deliver you as infants, then that you may come of age; and some of you die, and some of you are kept back unto the vilest state of life, that after knowing somewhat, they may know nothing. And thou beholdest the earth blackened, then, when We send down water upon it, it quivers, and swells, and puts forth herbs of every joyous kind.

Animal Soul • Depends on feelings and movement (in heart). • Sensory soul • (Ruh-i-hissi)
Human Soul Depends on: 1. Vegetative soul 2. Animal soul and 3. Rational soul
Vegetative soul • liver Animal soul • heart Rational soul • Cerebrum (front part of brain)
Revelation of Quran upon Prophet (pbuh) • (42: 52) • God revealed Quran to the Prophet (pbuh) in the form of a magnificent living soul and then He made it a light (Holy Spirit)
Dreams and Soul • When man sleeps, the soul does not leave the body completely, rather, its grip over some of the senses is loosened and it remains attending to itself. • Thus, in a dream man does not go anywhere, rather, he sees it within his own soul. (See: “Studies in Spiritualism and Dreams”).
Speaking (Rational) Soul • Members of the household converse with the child, such as its mother, sister, brother, father etc. , are the source of speaking soul for the child. • Thus, with this conversation speaking soul continues to enter the brain of the child through the ears and becomes complete gradually. https: //youtu. be/mbe 7 x 8 GP 2 Ds
Teaching Quran in early age
“Oh Prophet! They are asking you concerning the Spirit (ruh). Say: the Spirit is from (the world of) command (amr) of my Lord, and you have been vouchsafed very little knowledge” (17: 85) How many times is the word “ruh” (spirit) mentioned in the Quran? From the beginning to the end !! Apparently, ruh has numerous synonyms The word “RUH” is mentioned 24 times.
Single Soul • Quran AJ Arberry (31: 28) Your creation and your uprising are as but as a single soul. God is All-hearing, All-seeing. No black or white, No Christian, No muslim, No Hindu, no atheist …. all these factions and differentiations that the global community creates matter in reality we all are the same one Soul one creation. The diversity is like colors of a rainbow but in reality all that we have is sunlight. The only difference is some recognize it early in their life and some later after experiencing but eventually all realize and unite as one single soul.
