Details of the Question
Does the spirit get old like the body? Our body is born as a baby, grows up and gets old; does our spirit get old in the same way?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

The real nature of the spirit cannot be known fully. The spirit does not have the quality of getting old like the body. However, human spirit improves with belief and worshipping. Unbelief and sins worsen human spirit; that is, they lower it. Thus, the spirit can both be improved and worsened.

This issue is explained in the chapter of at-Tin:

"We have indeed created man in the best of molds, Then do We abase him (to be) the lowest of the low,- Except such as believe and do righteous deeds: For they shall have a reward unfailing."
