Barzakh, al-

Source:
The Oxford Dictionary of Islam What is This? Covers the religious, political, and social spheres of global Islam in the modern world

    Barzakh, al-

    Mentioned briefly in the Quran. Understood in the popular imagination as the time between individual death and resurrection. Barrier between deceased and realm of living. Some questionable traditions suggest that circumstances experienced in barzakh are conditioned by the behavior of the deceased while alive. Modern Muslim thinkers deemphasize barzakh, focusing instead on individual accountability and the Day of Judgment.
