Death is a condition that all living beings must eventually experience. It is a condition through which all memory, thought and other bodily functions cease to exist. It is the condition that causes the body to decay and return to the dust of the earth.

When death comes upon a person, he no longer exists until he is remembered on the day of resurrection. He will be resurrected whether he is good or bad. Some will be resurrected to life and some will be resurrected unto damnation.

When man dies his breath goes forth and he ceases to exist. He becomes a dead soul. There is no soul that goes forth, only his breath of life. Man is only dust of the earth and the breath of life. Death is the separation of the dust and the breath.
