Human Existence Before Worldly Life

Question

I want to know when soul was created by almighty? We all know that Allah created human being from clay. Then what about soul? Was our soul there even before we came into this world?


Answer

The Holy Qur'an tells us that humans have a kind of existence before birth. The Qur'an refers to a primordial covenant with Allah that was contacted by all the humans. This means that humans were there in some form before their birth. However, the mode of existence as well as the place of existence is not known. Nor does the Qur'an tell us anything about the time of the creation of human soul.
