Other Questions 4item I have a question about the spirits’ communication with the people of the earth. Although it is a complicated and lengthy question, I request you to send me an answer to it. The question is as under: It is said that the spirits of the martyrs or the descendants of the Imams (a.s.) communicate with some people on our planet earth. As far as I know, the communication is said to have been established with individuals from certain families. When we have asked about the reason behind this communication, it has been said that since these families were good-doers (pious) and they suffered a lot difficulties in their lives, the spirits communicated with them to help them. That is to say, after much invocation and supplication, they have been able to communicate with the people of the earth. They say that they are seven spirits of seven martyrs from a single family. They also say that all the infallibles visit them. I do not know how far these stories are true. It is said that they have also something to prove that such a communication has taken place. The main question which I would like to ask is how we should react in response to such stories? Secondly, what is the Islamic law about this issue? Even if such a communication presumably takes place, how can we make sure that whatever is said by the spirits is true? It is said that the spirits communicate with some people on earth to guide them in the right path but there exist some problems in their sayings. That is to say, there is dichotomy and contradiction in their utterances. How can one make sure that they are telling the truth? What is the relationship between the soul and body? Is it that the body is in the soul or vice versa? If we were to die, and would wish to come back to this world, and Allah was to grant this wish, would we be better people after coming back? After the Day of Judgment, will Allah (swt) create another world with new people who will have their own Day of Judgment?
