What is reincarnation and what are its different forms? Is it real or is it suppositional and not only it has not took place, it isn’t possible as well; in every case what is its relation with resurrection and the eternal world hereafter? This question strikes the minds of many people who see themselves between reincarnation and resurrection. I will try to study – with the help of God - the essence of reincarnation, in this article, and its different types and the reasons presented by the believers of reincarnation and some of the criticisms of the main idea and of its proofs; and then will investigate its relation with resurrection. I have used rational and experimental methods in this research. The result of this research is that it denies all the forms of worldly (molki) reincarnation; inability of the theory of reincarnation to ensure the outputs of resurrection, incompatibility of the absolute and infinite worldly reincarnation and the hereafter; and incompatibility of limited worldly reincarnation with resurrection of the body.
