Eschatology is a dominant theme in Sanā'ī Ghaznavi’s Seir al-Ebād and Abul ʿAla Al-Maʿarri’s Risālat al-ghufrān - two works from the world of Islam in which the narrative structure is based on the journey of the soul. This study examines the concept of eschatology and briefly deals with the beliefs of different cultures and religions. It then proceeds with the study of three aspects of eschatology in the two mentioned works. The study includes eschatology in the narrative structure of the works, eschatological symbols, and ideological beliefs underlying the notion of eschatology.
