15.THE FUNDAMENTAL LESSON OF THE QUR'AN
Then Chaitanya Mahaprabhu said: "The fundamental lesson of the Qur'an is that the soul is eternal and obtaining the vision of Allah, the soul remains there fully absorbed in bliss."In the Holy Qur'an (75.22-23) there are these statements:"Some faces, that Day, will beam,Looking towards their Lord."This means that when the righteous finally meet Allah they will see Him and their faces will beam with joy.Once the Prophet of Islam said: "Those believers who are in the highest honor with Allah will see His Divine Face morning and evening and compared to this all other pleasures of Paradise will be lightly esteemed and for¬gotten."28Let us also see what is the opinion of some prominent Muslim scholars.The author of Jowhara (p. 107-112) says: "It is possible to see Allah in this world as well as in the next. In this world it has been granted to Muhammad only. In the future world however, all believers will see Him; some say only His eyes, others say His whole face, others say every part of His body."29Thus the soul is eternal and when the pure soul attains the abode of Allah, he will see Allah directly. In such a pure exchange of feelings he will remain there fully absorbed in bliss.
