And so now you're making a genetic fallacy and ignoring the contents of the article. The Qur'an speaks about eschatology (alongside theology and ontology) in almost every Surah of the Qur'an, there are chapters dedicated to the subject within Hadith collections and are hundreds of books written on the subject. Your obvious lack of research cannot be compensated by being a smug smart alack.Quoting wikipedia in regard to islam eschatology does not make you smart either... go and do more research and tell me the definitive eschatology of islam...good luck
I can tell you're not a person who is a good reader if anything, so I would advise you to start small if you actually are going to learn about the subject.
ESCHATOLOGY: ISLAMIC ESCHATOLOGY In every area of religious life, the scriptural religions have developed along courses charted between the constraints and potentialities of their sacred texts and the expectations of the popular imagination. Nowhere has this process been more evident than in the...
I could link you many things but I would be wasting my time if I didn't first know that you'd actually read them.
Why wouldn't I? you did say before:Quoting wikipedia in regard to islam eschatology
Henceforth why I would introduce you to Islamic beliefs on the spiritual realms through the one you emphasis the most there by inference, being heaven. Jannah is heaven.for muslims are only concerned about the physical death and the material world, and they are totally clueless of the second death (of ‘dead in spirit’ like them) and the spiritual salvation through the grace of God......
If you know anything about the Qur'an at all, you would know that the phrase "gardens beneath which rivers flow" crops up quite a few times in the Qur'an, and refers to heaven, the spiritual garden of eden (something both mentioned both in Jewish belief and alluded to in the new testament).
There is a very direct and comprehensive concept of salvation within Islam, one that doesn't contradict the past in the manner that Christianity strongly does.
The concept of salvation in Islam is one's faith and knowledge (as it's something sought out) in God being correlated with the way one acts in this life. The principle of responsibility and accountability of one's actions is very strongly emphasized.
The Qur'an says in Surah 2:62:
"Indeed the faithful, the Jews,the Christians, and the Sabaeans—those of them who have faith in God and the Last Day and act righteously—they shall have their reward near their Lord, and they will have no fear,nor will they grieve."
There are three main realms outside of the physical realm (the universe) of which are believed in Islam. There is Jannah (heaven), there is Barzakh (the intermediary realm, it is likely what Catholicism got it's inspiration for Purgatory from) and Jahannam (hell).
As I've said, which you took no notice of; the concept of belief in God in any theistic religion innately and explicitly means that salvation is attached to said belief. To have a theistic religion where there is no attainment of life, would be anathema, it would be also an absurdity. There is no theistic religion that doesn't believe in some form of salvation.
I advise you read Surah 17 of the Qur'an a few times, you might have a positive realization: https://al-quran.info/#17
