What Quran Say about Reincarnation

Here let’s look at what other religions or beliefs says about the reincarnation ; 

Reincarnation according to Hinduism :

A soul reincarnates again and again on earth till it becomes perfect and reunites with it Source. During this process the soul enters into many bodies, assumes many forms, and passes through many births and deaths. This concept is summarily described in the following verse of Bhagavad Ghita :

” Just as a man discards worn out clothes and put on new clothes, the soul discards worn out bodies and wears new ones” (2.22)

Reincarnation according to Budhism :

Something has to reincarnate, following the dictates of karma. When asked about the differences between people in the matters of life span, illnesses, wealth, etc., the Buddha taught:

Men have, O young man, deeds as their very own, they are inheritors of deeds, deeds are their matrix, deeds are their kith and kin, and deeds are their support. It is deeds that classify men into high or low status (Majjhima Nikaya 135,4).

If there is no real self, who inherits the deeds and reincarnates? The Buddha answered that only karma is passing from one life to another, using the illustration of the light of a candle, which is derived from another candle without having a substance of its own. In the same manner there is rebirth without the transfer of a self from one body to another.

Reincarnation according to Islam :

Islam doesn’t agree with the reincarnation theory.  Let us look at what Allah Almighty said in the Noble Quran: “From the (earth) did We Create you, and into it Shall We return you, And from it shall We Bring you out once again.  (The Noble Quran, 20:55)” ” ‘And Allah has produced you from the earth, Growing (gradually), And in the End He will return you Into the (earth), And raise you forth (Again at the Resurrection).’  (The Noble Quran, 71:17-18)”

“Nor will they there Taste Death, except the first Death; and He will preserve Them from the Penalty Of the Blazing Fire.   (The Noble Quran, 44:56)”

” ‘Is it (the case) that We shall not die, except our first death, And that we Shall not be punished?’  Verily this is The supreme achievement!  For the like of this Let all strive, Who wish to strive.  (The Noble Quran, 37:58-61)”

From the above Noble Verses, we clearly see that Allah Almighty created us to die only once.  This clearly refutes the reincarnation theory from the Islamic perspectives.

Anyone would like to add what does the bible say about reincarnation ?
