Q.

How far does a soul of any human being travel after death? What happens if any person dies on moon? How will his soul come back to earth to take rebirth (without a space shuttle)? Or will his soul linger on moon or in space? What has happened to Kalapana Chawla's soul who died in space?

Knowledge of the nature of the soul, however, is only with Allah, as we read in the Quran what means,let us discuss in detail regarding soul.

[And they ask you concerning the soul. Say: " the soul is one of the things, of which the knowledge is only with my Lord. And of knowledge, you (mankind) have been given only a little. "] (Al-Israa 17:85)

With respect to the eternity of the soul, Allah reveals in the Quran that there was a time that we did not exist except, of course, in Allah s infinite knowledge.

[Has there not been over Man a long period of Time, when he was nothing not even mentioned? Verily We created Man from a drop of mingled fluid, in order to try him: So We gave him (the gifts), of Hearing and Sight.] (Al-Insan 76:1-2)

[But He (Allah) fashioned him (Man) in due proportion and breathed into him something of His spirit. And He gave you the faculties of hearing and sight and feeling and understanding: Little thanks do you give!] (As-Sajdah 32:9)

The whole confusion rests with ur idea of movement of soul ! Know well that there is no movement without space and time. Its only in the physcial dimension there is the appreance of space and time. In the dimension of soul there is no space or time. Soul simply remains, it doesnt travel or enter or exit. Bodies rise and fall in soul !

Nice question......soul is nothing but preta or ghost...soul can travel as the wind blows ... it cant withstand the flow of wind...it has to sit in a train to go to another place... as it has no weight, it cant travel on its own, due to wind flow.......when a person dies on moon, he can wait until a new shuttle comes there and sit in it, without the knowledge of those inmates...

Good qn. but i hope ur serious about it. there is a transmigration of soul. it needs no medium. not all atmas go to naraka or swarga lokas. great saints who acieved siddhi go to the vishnu loka thru the surya mandala. pl find further details ( if u wish to learn more) thru learned ones. so what matters is the spirituality one achieves not mundane fame or where they pass away.

The soul is not affected by time/place/any of the five natural powers. This means that it cud travel anywere even beyond this universe. Who knows there cud be several earths in this very universe.

God is omnipresent and soul is just a fraction of the God,as soon as the soul leave body it will became the part of the God ,and there is only one God for this whole universe .Please read the following text
"Purnamada purnmidam purnaaat purnmudchyate
purnasya purnmadaya purnmewavashishayate "

its translation says The invisible is the Whole,the visible too is Whole.From the whole ,the visible universe of infinite extension has come on.The Whole remains the same ,even though the infinite universe has come out of it.
