What is the soul of journey in islam? What is the definition of soul journey

The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, has related certain scenes from the realm of the grave, the Last Day and the Next World, that we stop and reflect and prepare for the last breath and beyond.

On the authority of Abu Hurayra (may Allah be well pleased with him) the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) once said:

“When the soul of a believer leaves their body, it is received by two angels who raise it to the heavens. He then mentioned the sweetness of its fragrance emitted from the believer’s soul. The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) further said that the inhabitants of the heavens say:

‘Here comes a pleasant, right acting soul from the earth. May the blessings of Allah be upon the body in which it resides.’

And then it is carried by the angels to its Lord, the Exalted and Glorious. He says:

“Take it to its destined end the grave that is a garden from among the gardens of the Garden.

The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) then made mention of the foul smell of the soul of the unbeliever as it leaves the body and of its being cursed.

“The inhabitants of the heavens say, ‘Here comes an impure soul from earth’ and it will be said: ‘Take it to its destined end, a pit from among the pits of Hell.’

Abu Hurayra then reported that The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) placed the thin cloth which was with him upon his nose while making mention (of the foul smell) of the soul of an unbeliever. (Muslim, Janna, 75)
