(Information in brackets is added to assist readers in the interpretation of the verse).



The first time Allaah promised eternal life after death to the righteous among humans is in the Jewish Bible. 

1. In the Torah Adam and Eve and their children Cain and Abel are promised to be accepted by Allaah if they choose good behaviour and reject evil behaviour and Allaah tells them they have the ability to do it. 

Torah Genesis 4:6 And the LORD (Allaahsaid to Cain: 'Why are you angry? and why is your facial expression fallen? 

Torah Genesis 4:7 If you do good, shall it (your good behaviour) not be accepted? And if you do not do good (behaviour), then sin (wrongdoing by you) waits at the door; and he (sin) desires you (to do evil behaviour), but you (by doing good behaviour and rejecting evil behaviour) can rule over it (sin, meaning humans have the ability to reject wrong doing).' 

2. The Torah teaches that Allaah has placed good and evil in the world and commanded humans to choose good. 

Allaah says those who choose life on the earth will be blessed with life in the hereafter. 

Torah Deuteronomy 30:19 I (Allaahcall heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that I (Allaahhave set before you life and death, the blessing (of life) and the curse (of death); therefore choose life (the blessing), so that you and your descendants may live (with the blessing of life). 

3. Prophet Abraham Ibrahim who was not buried with his fathers is promised peace in the afterlife in Genesis 15:15 in the expression “But you (Abraham Ibrahim) shall go to your fathers in peace …” 

Genesis 15:15 But you (Abraham Ibrahim) shall go to your fathers in peace; you shall be buried in a good old age. 

4. The promise of Allaah.

In 1 above Allaah accepts Good behaviour. 

In 2 above Allaah says people and their descendants who choose the blessing of life in this world will get the blessing of life. 

In 3 above Allaah says to Abraham Ibrahim he fulfilled the command of Allaah for good behaviour in this world in 1 above by choosing the blessing of life in this world in 2 above and that his reward will be to go to his fathers in peace (which is the next life). 

Abraham Ibrahim was not buried with his fathers. 

Allaah is telling Abraham Ibrahim that “you (Abraham Ibrahim) shall go to your fathers in peace.” 

Torah Genesis 25:8 And Abraham Ibrahim expired, and died in a good old age, an old man, and full of years; and was gathered to his people.  

Torah Genesis 25:9 And Isaac Ishaq and Ishmael Ismail his sons buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which is before Mamre (Hebron today in Israel and Palestine);  

Torah Genesis 25:10 in the field which Abraham Ibrahim purchased from the children of Heth; there was Abraham Ibrahim buried, and Sarah his wife. 

Genesis 9:5 And surely I (Allaah) will require it (accounting in this life and/or in the hereafterfor (the taking of) your lifebloodby the hand of any animal (who takes your life) I will require it (accounting for what they did); and by the hand of man (by suicideeven by the hand of every man’s brother (by any human who takes your life), I (Allaahwill require (taking) the life of (that) man (in this life and/or in the hereafter). 
Note 1. Suicide is punished in the hereafter.

Daniel 12:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust (grave) of the earth shall awake (resurrected), some to everlasting life (in Paradise), and some to rebukes and everlasting loathing (in Hell). 

Isaiah 26:19 Your dead shall live, “My dead bodies shall arise, awake and sing, you that dwell in the dust (grave) for Your (Allaah’s) dew (the Torah) is like the dew of light (of guidance), and the earth shall bring to life the shades (those in the graves). 

Ecclesiastes 12:7 And (in death) the dust returns to the earth as it was and the spirit returns to Allaah who gave it.

Psalm 37:37 Mark (remember) the man (the human) of integrity (the human of truth and honesty), and look at the upright (the righteous); for there is a future (to receive Allaah’s mercy and Allaah’s blessing in the hereafter) for the man (the human) of peace (the human who strives to make peace in the world).

Psalm 37:38 But transgressors (law breakers, evil doers and peace breakers) shall be destroyed (all) together (in the hereafter); the future of the wicked shall be cut off (from Allaah’s mercy and Allaah’s blessings and they shall be punished in the hereafter).

This is not a perfect translation of the Quran because the Quran is in the Arabic language. 
The Arabic language in the Quran must be understood as it was understood over 1400 years ago. 
Allaah guides who He wills to the correct understanding of the Quran.
