Thinking of death makes most people uneasy. All religions have slightly different views about what happens after death.
Buddhists and Hindus don’t believe in hell; they believe in reincarnation. Muslims believe in the “Torment of the Grave” and also Hell. Muslims hope to avoid suffering in Hell by depending on their good works and the mercy of Allah.
Christians hold to what Prophet Isa said about life after death. In the Injil, Mark 10:45, Isa says, “The Son of Man came to give his life as a ransom for many.”
What do these words mean in how Christians handle the fear of death? What’s the most significant difference between a Muslim’s and Christian’s key to their eternal salvation and life after death? Watch this video to answer those questions.

iqra Toqeer says
Christians have no fear of death, because Jesus promised his followers that they will be in Heaven after they die. Jesus will give them an eternal life.
Death is not to be feared. Rather, it is to be welcomed with open arms. Ancient wisdom has proven that reincarnation is a more rational argument of improving all life on Earth.
“For a fire is kindled in mine anger, And shall burn unto the lowest hell, And shall consume the earth with her increase, And set on fire the foundations of the mountains.”
(Deuteronomy 32:22 KJV)
“And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; and in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.”
(Luke 16:22-26 KJV)
