Narrated by B.Tomac
As we know, the Quran refers to the event known as ‘death’ as an experience which every ‘soul’, i.e. every ‘individual human consciousness and spirit’, will ‘taste’.
But what exactly is meant by the word ‘taste’? With what intention is this word used?
The word taste is usually used in reference to nice and pleasurable things. The original Arabic word ‘dhaika’ is also used in the same way. Hence, death is actually a pleasurable, taste-filled event for the conscious spirit, who will have become free from the constraints of the physical-biological body and all its limitations!
Every individual will eventually change dimensions through tasting death. The Quran uses the phrase ‘tasting death’ to imply this transition of dimensions.
