Thought I would share these views for kids from Islamic countries who may be closet MetaPhysicians/Psychics/Astrologers.
It is usually a foregone conclusion in Muslim masses that this is the one and only life, and after this life, the person is raised up during the Day of Resurrection, judged, and then rewarded for eternity in different levels of Paradise or banished to Hell to suffer Eternal Torment.
The Quran [Holy Book of Muslims, Revelation received by Islam's Prophet in 610 AD Mecca]
gives graphic descriptions of Heaven and Hell. The character regularly depicted as going to Hell is the Pharoah who tried to kill the Tribe of Moses. Each and every Believer in One God is assured a passage to Heaven.
Yet, the Quran clearly states that many verses are Allegorical. Not to be taken literally.
Interestingly, not a single verse in the entire Quran denies the possibility of:
1. Parallel Universes. In fact, 7 Heavens are spoken of which could easily mean 7 Dimensions.
2. Simultaneous Existences. Concept Never discussed, and we are also clearly told that God is Able to Do All Things with a Command of "Be".
3. Out of Body Experiences and Astral Projection
5. Remote Viewing
6. Consciousness Re-incarnation across timelines.
Only Physical Reincarnation with the same DNA Body is denied as possible [Until a specific Day of Resurrection]
Acceptance of Anomalous Human Gifts:
In Chapter 18, a Mystical character is introduced who has tons of more knowledge and wisdom than even Moses. Arabic Legends call him "Khidr", some scholars connecting him to Melchizedek.
Khidr is able to see the Future like a Clairvoyant and read information about people's true intentions like a Psychic.
It is hinted that he possessed knowledge through Gnosis [Self-Learned] and was given knowledge directly from God without a revealing Angel. [In Islamic Traditions, Knowledge from God is usually shown as being received only with the assistance of Angel Gabriel]
Acceptance of Immortal Souls/Ascension:
Another verse [Chapter 7, 172] clearly proves that Human Consciousness existed way before the present physical incarnation.
Ascension from one level to another is mentioned in Chapter 84, verse 18.
Biggest Evidence of Human Immortality:
In several verses, God insists that He "Breathed of His Spirit" into Adam. God's Spirit/The Divine Spark in every Human Soul cannot in a any stretch of imagination enter a region like Hell without illuminating it with Divine Light. Thus, no Human Soul can possibly be tormented for eternity. Clearly, the verses of Heaven and Hell have to be allegorical, a way of discouragement to uneducated masses in pre-medieval ages to avoid evil acts.
Thus, Muslim children born on or after 1994 [who have an extraordinarily higher probability of being psychic, clairvoyant, recalling past incarnational memories] need not panic or feel guilty that they are unacceptable to God from a Quranic Perspective.
Every Human Being has, is and will always be acceptable to God. We are merely encouraged to do more good deeds, that's it.
This is the understanding I get from the Quran.
