We fear and hate what we don't understand , hence Paul says,
Furthermore in the Bible, we encounter an equivalent to the 'fountain of youth' concept,
This is repeated by Paul who gives his own summary that Jesus gives eternal life,
Then Paul slips the accusation from Adam, over to Eve. Paul accuses all women of being responsible for the actions of Eve and says a woman can redeem herself through the pains of child "birth",
The Holy Quran does not give us episodes of 'original sin' and 'magic potions' . Instead the Holy Quran gives us facts from our Creator that death is a normal process and we live for a certain period and then return to God.
The Gospel leads some Christians to believe that Eve is the cause of all death on earth. Their interpretation is that all of God's creation was made perfect, immortal. Then when Eve sinned, she was no longer perfect, no longer immortal, consequently passing death through out the earth.
Archeological scientists give us evidence through the Fossil records clearing the felony accusations towards Eve. Fossils give us solid proof that death existed and occurred millions of years before the existence of humans. The oldest human fossil, the homo habilis skeleton has been dated to be 2 million years old, showing that humans are relatively the youngest life forms on earth.
The conclusive verification that death existed despite the activities of humans, is that fossil skeletons of monkeys were found 39 million years old, ancestors of rabbits 45 million years old, prehistoric dog and cat skeletons 64 million years old. All manifesting death millions of years before humans ever sinned. This concrete evidence again shows that death is not a transmitted curse, instead death is a natural biological process which first affected algae and bacteria over 3 Billion years ago.
Again signifying that death is universal, and no soul is exempted.
Death will catch all of us and it can not be conquered as Paul in the Bible conceives. The Quran says,
It is precisely stated in this verse that neither humans nor created idols, can have full control over death, dying is an unavoidable necrosis which those who assumed human gods could make you immortal, were wrong. The Quran debunks all fallacies of ancient flesh god parables who give us immortality through sacrifices or ritual drinks. Dying is an unavoidable occurrence similar to the sun setting.
The Divinity of this cycle is clear. If the Sun did not set, and the Night did not cover the land, then all of the earth would become barren, with a constant Sun 24 hours a day, the earth would wither away. Similarly, if humans did not die, the resources on this earth would have been depleted. We are surrounded by cycles, within and without our Universe, we also give birth, which maintains the existence of humans, so factually, both death and birth, maintains our presence here on earth.
Many cycles are referenced in the Holy Quran which generate and preserve life on our planet, if any of the numerous sequences, including death, were removed from the repeated phenomenons, the human race would fade away within a century, instead of lasting millenniums as we have been. If we observe our surroundings realistically, we need death, we can't live without it. Life and Death are a perfect pair like day and night,
Death in Islam is a transitional process, to die is nothing to remorse about,
Here we see that death itself is not the punishment, the punishments from God are prior to death and in the manner of accountability, punishments and rewards are after death.
We see that Adam, is confirmed to be mortal, who was not exempted from death, so death was not passed down from Adam or Eve, nor did Adam cause himself to become mortal, being vulnerable to death is the way God created us.
Death is a stepping stone, not a pox spreading through humans, generation after generation. The Quran lifts you up and inspires you, the Quran teaches us that we are born Muslims (in submission to God), unlike other doctrines which teach you that we are born sinners, heathens, cursed, incomplete, imperfect, infectious, inadequate, and fall short.
While the Quran teaches you are a good person, you are born an agent of God, you can do the deeds that come with faith, and if not, God is Merciful, you are not passing a death curse on to your children, God loves you and your children. You are complete and you have the power to enter Heaven without any other human assistance, No one had to die in your place, God forgave Adam at the start, God is forgiving. God takes your personal physical limitations into account and is Cherishing. The Holy Quran says,
May God have mercy on those who love Him
