Barzakh is the name given by the Mohammedans to the time and condition of the soul between death and tlie resurrection. The souls of the believers partake, even in this state, of a part of the blessedness to follow; on the other hand, the souls of the unbelievers are banished to the place of punishment, the seventh heaven. The souls of the prophets go directly into Paradise; the martyrs, however, live in the bodies of beautiful green birds, which eat of the fruit of the trees of Paradise.
