After Life Beliefts for Islam

One must be cautious of his actions here on Earth because Muslims believe that a deceased person's afterlife heavily depends on the deeds he has done while he was still alive.

According to Islam, every departed is put in like a soul sleep until the Judgment Day comes. During this important day, God will judge both the living and the dead based on the things they have accomplished on Earth. Those who have done good things will then be sent to Heaven, which is described as a paradise where suffering does not exist. Wicked ones, on the other hand, will go to Hell and burn in fire as a punishment for their sins. They can, however, be forgiven by God in His own will and time.
