Can we to with Ghosts, Jinns etc?
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Comment: Everybody must have heard the stories of the unphenominal & unphenominal sighting, and many must have experienced it.
Yes, I guess almost everyone might have heard the stories of the unphenominal sightings; and they are basically just that: stories! There is no concrete proof given by anyone regarding these sightings, and in my humble opinion these stories are but a combination of fear, phobia, imagination and Hollywood fantasy!
Your Comment: In the old times I am not interested but Is it possible for any human in this 21st century to see, feel or talk to the people of the other side I mean Angels, Ginns, Ghost (Dead people Souls/spirits), Imams, Caliphs Etc?
It is not possible for human beings in the 21st century to talk to the Angels, souls of dead people, etc. Although some people do claim to talk to the Jinns, there is no concrete proof. And again in my opinion it is a combination of fear, phobia and imagination of the people who claim to correspond with the Jinns. Allah has created the Human Beings and the Jinns as two distinct creations and they have very little to do with each other. Both live in their own spheres of creation as decreed by their Lord and Creator and they are independent of each other.
Your Comment: What does Islam and Quran say can we humans see, feel or talk to the people of the other side or not?
In light of the Holy Quran, Allah has mentioned the creation of the Angels, the Jinns and the Human Beings. The Angels do not have a will of their own, and they simply obey the commands of Allah Subhanah. Only the Human beings and Jinns have been given a free will and they have the capacity to choose between right and wrong, Truth and falsehood, obedience and dis-obedience to their Creator, and formulate their own paths.
Only the Prophets of Allah and some specified people (like Hadrat Maryam, etc.) received and spoke to the Angels who came as Messengers from Allah. Angels do not come and correspond with normal people. Allah has assigned them their duties like recording the deeds of every individual, protecting the individual according to the commands of Allah, taking out the soul of the person at the time of his death, and at times they are sent by Allah to destroy the habitations of the ungrateful and disobedient peoples. Other than the Messengers of Allah and some specified people in the Quran, it is not possible for human beings to see, feel or talk with the Angels.
Like the human race, the Jinns are a creation of Allah. They are born, they die, and spend their lives similar to ours in a sphere of their own. They have their own sets of trials and tribulations, worries and happiness, pain and relief, obedience and dis-obedience to Allah, etc. like the human beings. They too have a free will to choose between obedience and dis-obedience, right and wrong, Truth and falsehood; and they too will be gathered by Allah on the Day of Judgment to give a full accounting of their deeds.
They are a distinct creation from the human race, and the human beings and jinns have very little or no real interaction between each other.
Some people do claim to see and conversate with the Jinns, but mostly these accounts are either heresay or imaginations of the people. Allah Alone Knows Best.
Ref: Ghosts of dead people.
There is absolutely no such thing, and since there is no such creation as ghosts, no one can see, feel or talk to them! When one dies, the angels take the soul of the dead to a holding place known as barzakh. No soul can leave that place of barzakh and no human can connect with the souls in barzakh. All the stories that one hears about ghosts and souls of the dead people returning to earth to correspond with their loved and/or hated ones, are nothing but lies and fabrications.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
