The Corporeal Resurrection in Transcendent Wisdom

In Al-Mabda' wal-Ma'ad, Mulla Sadra underlines resurrection as an important pillar of Islam and a key principle in wisdom saying that "what is resurrected in the hereafter is the very human body with the same qualities. Whoever denies this kind of resurrection has in fact denied the religion and whoever says that another body with different qualities will appear in the hereafter has in fact denied the resurrection."Khwajeh Nasir believes that such a kind of resurrection is possible. Making use of two rational and empirical premises, Avicenna speaks of the corporeal resurrection as a function of revelation which should necessarily be accepted. Avicenna believes in spiritual resurrection as well. He says that the Mohammadan law makes us needless of having to explain the corporeal resurrection but the spiritual resurrection needs to be proven.Bringing the long-debated issue of the corporeal resurrection forward in his time, Mulla Sadra emphasizes that to prove the continuation of the existence of soul does not automatically prove the corporeal resurrection
