Given the fact that man’s body is transformed into a new one in every eight years, the question arises as to which one of these bodies are resurrected and brought to justice on the Day of Judgment?

The answer to the above question is that the soul is the center of reward and punishment, happiness and agony, pleasure and pain. Hence, if the body suffers a pain, it is because of the soul to which it belongs. In case the soul is taken away from the body, there is left nothing except the flesh which, if cut into pieces, will not involve or entail any pain.

Why? That is because the body is soulless. Therefore, when it comes to implementing justice, punishing anyone of a human being’s bodies would not be against justice even though he may not have committed a crime with it. That is because the body is like a cloth put on a criminal who is supposed to be flogged.
