Comparative Study of the Resurrection in the Avesta, the Bible, the Talmud and the Quran with an Emphasis on the Qualities and Characteristics of the Paradise
Abstract:   (8501 Views)

The issue of resurrection has been manifestly mentioned in the Avesta, the Bible, the Talmud and the Quranand only in the Pentateuch Torah,there is no explicit reference to this point. The Old Testament does not include descriptions of the Paradise, but the Avesta and the New Testament contain such general description of the Paradise as ‘a place of comfort and happiness’, ‘the best life’ and ‘the eternal life’. The detailed attributes of the Paradise and its blessings, more similar to what the Quran mentions, are found in the oral tradition of Judaism, the Talmud, and in the books of Zoroastrianism, which reveal their Devine nature and the unity of their origin. In addition, the issue of resurrection and the attributes of the Paradisehave been dealt with comprehensively and in detail in the Holy Quran in comparison with the books of Zoroastrianism, Judaism and Christianity. This is indicative of distortion of the previous scriptures, the higher position of Islam in the evolutionary course of religions and the superiority of the Holy Quran to other scriptures.

Keywords: the Quran, the Resurrection, attributes of the Paradise, the Avesta, the Torah, the Bible, theTalmud.
