Soulology | Sagesse de l'âme du Coran
In the Name of Allah,
the Universally Merciful,
the Singularly Compassionate
By the soul and That which shaped it.
And inspired it (both) to lasciviousness
and to consciousness of Allah.
Successful is one who purifies it.
and failed is the one who buries it (in sins).
- The Qur'an 91:7-10
Your creation and your resurrection (from the dead) are only like (that of) a single soul. Surely Allah is Hearing, Seeing.
There is no soul but that it has a guardian over it.
To Allah belongs (all) that is in the heavens and (all) that is on the earth. And if you make known what is in your soul, or hide it, still you are held accountable for it by Allah. And He shall forgive whom He will and punish whom He will. And Allah has power over all things.
Allah does not burden any soul except with what it can bear. To its account is what it has merited (by way of goodness), and against it what it has earned (by way of the evil it did). (Pray thus) "Our Lord, do not condemn us if we forget or unwittingly do wrong. Our Lord, do not lay a load on us as You burdened those who came before us. Pardon us. Forgive us. Have mercy on us. You are our Master, so aid us against the folk who cover up (the Truth)."
Oh you soul whose self is at peace!
Return to your Lord well pleased, well pleasing.
So enter the ranks of My worshipers
and enter My Garden.
