"Good and contented spirits" are told to "depart to God's grace." They leave the body "as simply as a drop from a waterskin," are wrapped in a fragrant shroud by angels, and sent to the "seventh heaven," where the record is stored. These spirits are then restored to their bodies as well. The souls of those who have been condemned to hell are described as "being thrown into a lake of fire."
The Bible does not say how or when the soul leaves the body, only that it happens after death. However, there are several theories about how this happens.
One theory is called "spiritualism." It says that the soul departs the body at exactly the moment that life leaves it. So, for example, if a person is shot with a gun they may feel pain for a few seconds or minutes after the bullet hits the body, but then their soul has left their body and can no longer experience pain.
At this point, the mind continues functioning without the presence of the soul. It makes decisions, feels emotions, and thinks thoughts. This part of the human spirit is called "the ego." It is the part that decides what we will eat, drink, think, and do. The ego also gets angry, afraid, jealous, and proud. It is responsible for controlling these functions of the body and mind.
After death, the soul is separated from the ego.
The soul travels through the air world, which is inhabited by malevolent spirits. These spirits want to drag the soul towards hell, and the soul must discover the strength to remain with God. This is a judgment on the sins of the soul. After 40 days, the spirit finds its home in the afterlife. Here it waits for another human being to call upon its name and write down its spirit. Only when this happens will the spirit be allowed into heaven.
After death, the soul receives two gifts from God: faith to continue living in prayer and hope that things will get better after death.
What is required of us while we are alive? That we believe in Jesus Christ and follow him. Through his love given for us, he has redeemed us from death and sin. With his help, we can face every trial that comes our way.
What must we do now to be saved? That we admit our need for salvation through Jesus Christ and accept his gift of eternal life.
After 100 years, the spirit finds its home in paradise.
The angels then arrive at the highest heaven, but the doors are closed to the evil soul. As a result, the soul is cast into hell, or the underworld, where it will be tormented until the Day of Judgment. Hell is a permanent place of punishment and suffering. It was created by God for the wicked.
In Islam, when a person dies their soul goes to Heaven. But, if the person was not a Muslim then their body has to be buried or placed in water so that it can be used by others. After this time has passed, the soul can join the believers in Heaven as long as they are willing to be admitted.
Here on Earth we only see a small part of what happens after death. However, in Islam we know that everyone has a day of judgment when they will be rewarded or punished for their deeds.
