This article explores the viewpoints of Abul-Hasan Ameri regarding the concepts of purgatory and resurrection. While Ameri does not directly address these topics, an indirect analysis of his works suggests that he perceives the world of purgatory as an intermediate state between earthly life and resurrection. Regarding resurrection, Ameri maintains that while humans cannot fully comprehend its essence, individuals can acquire knowledge of it based on their own understanding. This implies that people possess varying levels of understanding when it comes to the concept of resurrection. Ameri's beliefs on both the physical and spiritual aspects of resurrection are influenced by religious texts, philosophers, and theologians. However, due to the limited availability of Ameri's works, it is challenging to draw a definitive conclusion about his perspectives on purgatory and resurrection.
