    This passage suggests RasulAllah ﷺ was alive even without his soul...

    SubhanAllah and JazakAllah Br Saeed.
    Does that mean the ruh is within the actual body of Rasoolullah?
    I also recently read that the Ruh was in the 4th heaven. So these must be both valid opinions?

    Hadrat Abu Hurayra (RadhiAllahuanhu) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (alaihis-salat-o-was-salam) said,

    ما من أحد يسلم على إلا رد الله على روحى حتى أرد عليه السلام

    "No-one greets me except Allah has returned my soul to me so that I can return his salâm".

    From Abu Hurayra, in Abu Dawud (6:214) with a sound (Sahih) chain. This hadith has been adduced by the scholars as the legal proof for the validity and modality of visiting and greeting the Prophet Peace and Blessings be Upon Him.

    Imam Jala al-Din Suyuti (RahimuAllah) said that

    "radda" means "`ala al-dawâm," i.e. permanently, and not temporarily. In other words, Allah does not return the rûH and take it back, then return it again and then take it back again, but He returned it to the Prophet permanently, and the Prophet is alive permanently.

    In the light of the hadith and scholarly opinion the Blessed Ruh of Holy prophet Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa(alaihis-salat-o-was-salam) rests in Madinah munawwarah in his blessed Grave.
