Bodily resurrection is one of the most important issues in the field of religion. Proving and explaining it as well as answering its relevant objections have constituted one of the most fundamental concerns of theologians, religion philosophers, and other men of faith. One of the objections to the materiality of resurrection is the theory of the eater and the eaten, variously answered by Islamic thinkers. However, receiving inadequate responses, it has ensued serious problems. Using the findings of genetics, this paper presents a new version of the theory of the main components of the body (one of the responseswith a focus on hadith) that will prove bodily resurrection, be generalizable, and make sense to common readers.
