<p>Can I survive my mortal Death?An assignment for food of thoughts Submitted toProf. Dr. Najma Najam</p> <p>ByAshfaq HussainRoll No: 21Ph.D Scholar </p> <p>School of Media &amp; Communication Studies University of Central Punjab, Lahore</p> <p>Can I survive my mortal death? This was the question of the day, I thought for hours, days and night about this phenomenon. I read various studies but all in vain nothing was useful in my case. First query in mind was about possibility of the life is possible after death? Holly Quran answered my question, in holly Quraan , Surah Ali-Imran, 3:169-172 God said But do not think of those that have been slain in Gods cause a dead. Nay, they are alive! With their Sustainer have they their sustenance </p> <p>. God clarifies that there is no death for those who slain in Gods Cause. They remained alive and get their sustainer; it means life after death is possible and one way is to slain in Gods cause there might me many others way as well. Now second question was is there life is subjective or objective or in other words physical existence or spiritual presence? I believe if they dont have any physical existences than they might not have any need of sustainer for their sustenance but God is saying they are alive! With their sustainer have they their sustenance. On another occasion God says in Holly quran Surah Al-Qiyamat, 29:3-4 God Does man thinks we will not assemble his bones? Yes. [We are] Able [even] to proportion his fingertips</p> <p>Reassembling of bones and provision of sustainers means signs of physical existence for me. If life after death is only belongs to soul then there might not be any need or reassembling of bones and provision of sustainers. Religiously speaking yes I can survive my mortal death as my death will be in Gods cause. Thinking critically about the statement Can I survive my mortal death it appears that life has two different aspects one is subjective and second is objective, in other words one aspect is my physical existence and other is spiritual or virtual existence. We may not be able to survive our physical existence on earth but we can survive our spiritual existence. If we are living a worthy life then we may be able to survive our mortal death as. Aristotle, Leonardo da Vinci, Socrates and many other normal human being are still alive on earth because of their worth living life. Their work reflects them on earth and humans talks, write, and read about them represents their existing anywhere in this universe. Concluding my discussion, yes I can save my mortal death, physical or spiritual existence on earth is possible by spending a worth living life as Aristotle said An unexamined life not worth living</p>
