ABSTRACT
The concept of Spirit (ruh) is researched during the whole history of philosophy. Muslim theologians have made clear its uses and implications in their works. It is explained both spirit and soul. The question of definition or destination of soul was always central. Some scholar surely accepted its existence without body and defines the ruh as a spiritual substance, imperishable, single and simple. According to those scholars, human body can have feeling, animation or perception by the means of spirit. Much of the discussion about spirit or soul in Islamic thought and works of theology has centered on the relationship between the ruh and holy (aljism). So another problem has occurred if spirit or soul is a problem of the invisible world. This paper examines the Muslim scholars' opinion about the subject. For ease of reference, the ideas discussed in that paper have been grouped under some headings.
