I wanted to learn more about the soul and came across this definition. “The soul, in many religious, philosophical, and mythological traditions, is the incorporeal essence of a living being. Soul or psyche are the mental abilities of a living being: reason, character, feeling, consciousness, memory, perception, thinking, etc.” but this could be argued because someone can say that the brain has these functions. Therefore What is the soul

The soul is the “command of Allah” as the Holy Quran describes. It is by which we become alive and have honor. As reported in the traditions, it is the source of belief, motion, desire, strength and potential. This is different from the self (nafs), which is the animated part of us that essentially makes us human.
