Written by: AY Mol

In the traditional concept, the Afterlife was approached using the ancient understandings of the universe. Because of this, most views on the afterlife are mythological using metaphorical expressions and viewing it as something not linked to a natural system within the universe. With the emergence of the materialistic Western science, the concept of a Hereafter was ridiculed since it concerned spirituality, something that is believed to lie outside empirical knowledge and thus improvable. But with new theories coming from the fields of cosmology and quantum physics, the universe shows to be far more complex and far less material. On the lowest levels of existence, all matter turn into quanta-energy and information and follow laws and systems very different from the higher levels where energy is in the forms of light and matter.

The Qur'an constantly reminds us that we must understand this universe to understand God's system:

3:190-191 إِنَّ فِى خَلْقِ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ وَٱخْتِلَٰفِ ٱلَّيْلِ وَٱلنَّهَارِ لَءَايَٰتٍۢ لِّأُو۟لِى ٱلْأَلْبَٰبِ

Verily, in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the succession of night and day, there are indeed messages for all who are endowed with insight,

ٱلَّذِينَ يَذْكُرُونَ ٱللَّهَ قِيَٰمًۭا وَقُعُودًۭا وَعَلَىٰ جُنُوبِهِمْ وَيَتَفَكَّرُونَ فِى خَلْقِ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ رَبَّنَا مَا خَلَقْتَ هَٰذَا بَٰطِلًۭا سُبْحَٰنَكَ فَقِنَا عَذَابَ ٱلنَّارِ

[and] who remember God when they stand, and when they sit, and when they lie down to sleep, and [thus] reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth: "O our Sustainer! Thou hast not created [aught of] this without meaning and purpose. Limitless art Thou in Thy glory! Keep us safe, then, from suffering through the fire (as we burn away our potential for further development)!

The Qur'an itself uses, next to allegorical expressions, the current natural universe as an example for the new universe, and refers to it being part of the same system, but on different levels. The human psyche or self (nafs in the Qur'an), is determined as something that exists apart from a biological body, but uses a biological body as a vehicle to interact with the universe. The human psyche and all its deeds and thoughts are part of the information storage of the universe on the quanta level. As explained by professor Seth Loyd:

“The Universe is made of bits. The way in which the Universe registers and processes
information determines what it is and how it behaves. It has been known for more than a
century that every piece of the Universe - every electron, atom, and molecule - registers
bits of information."

And science philosopher Ervin Laszlo:

“There is no evident limit to the information that interfering vacuum wavefields could
conserve. In the final count, they could carry information on the state of the whole

27:75 وَمَا مِنْ غَآئِبَةٍۢ فِى ٱلسَّمَآءِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ إِلَّا فِى كِتَٰبٍۢ مُّبِ

And there is nothing hidden in the heaven and the Earth but it is in a clear Record.

Very interesting article. Last year I started reading Seth Lloyd's "Programming the Universe" but stopped midway because the complicated quantum physics explanations became too overwhelming. I will be taking a quantum physics intro course in the college in the near future and hopefully I can continue reading the book with my newfound understanding.
