Does Islam or Muslims believe in reincarnation?

No, Muslims do not believe in reincarnation. But we believe in life after death. Islam teaches us that our souls are returned to our bodies in the grave after the death and we will be questioned about three things:
  1. Who we used to worship?
  2. What was our way of life?
  3. Who was the Prophet sent to us?

Then after the end of the world, there will be a Day of Resurrection where everyone will be raised up back from their graves and gathered together for judgement. Our deeds will be weighed and we will be rewarded or punished accordingly.

Allah says refuting those who claim reincarnation (interpretation of the meaning): Do they not see how many of the generations We have destroyed before them Verily, they will not return to them. [ Ya-Sin 36:31]....... “Everyone shall taste death. Then unto Us you shall be returned”[ al-‘Ankaboot 29:57] ......... “The disbelievers pretend that they will never be resurrected (for the Account). Say (O Muhammad): Yes! By my Lord, you will certainly be resurrected, then you will be informed of (and recompensed for) what you did; and that is easy for Allah” [ al-Taghaabun 64:7]

Q.Recently, I came across a book called “Many Lives, Many Masters” by Dr. Brian Weiss, which speaks of Reincarnation. It explains that reincarnation is a belief in Hinduism, Buddhism and even Christianity. I know that as muslims we do not hold to this belief but can you give some thoughts on this subject for me please as far as Islam is concerned. What exactly is reincarnation?

A. Reincarnation (often equated with transmigration) refers to the belief that after the end of one’s life, the soul moves into another living form.

It is often connected with a belief that the actions of the soul in one’s life determine the future existence. It is a belief found within Hindu traditions, Greek philosophy, some traditions of Christianity and other theological systems.

As for Islam, it totally condemns this belief of reincarnation/transmigration of the soul. There is no place for this in Islam, and there is no teaching of the Quran and the Sunnah that indicates to it.

Islam believes in the concept of resurrection which necessitates a piece of the original body to initiate the formation of the resurrected body.

According to the doctrine of reincarnation, the soul is moved into a completely new and separate body in this world. The advocates of this belief do not believe in paradise, hell and all the matters of the hereafter. Resurrection however, is the returning of the soul to the same body in the hereafter (not in this world), and this is the belief of Muslims.

And Allah knows best.

Just a little tip - Islam doesn't believe anything since Islam is not a person.
Allah informs us through prophets and through what we observe and are convinced of.

If a person leaves the planet 2000 years ago and is born again - yet spends 21 years of his life til marriage almost totally clueless as to his past identity, the best thing to do is to use one's faculties of understanding to think about why and also how above beyond our limited knowledge and comprehension Allah the most high who created the person is.

Anyways, in case anyone gets the wrong assumption, did the mahdi or jesus save our great great grandparents? Nope. It's an individual wake-up process until death.
Min kum man yureed ad dunya wa min kum man yureed al aakhirah.

A wise person is the one who learns from his failings and successes, and thereby achieves salvation, an even wiser person is the one who learns from the failings and successes of others and thereby achieves salvation.

Most of us know that Allah is way above ad-dajjal and everything else beyond any measure, however masihulllah and masih ad dajjal are both referred to as Al Masih (wiped/anointed/crowned), going through the ahadith and previous scripture should give us an idea about how the capabilities of both are sometimes confusing - and purposefully so.
Ultimately, they both reside in each individual and have done so long before the "two" existed, one quality will be prevalent at death, and whether you're literate or not, you might be able to tell by a mark - or lack thereof.......

Anyways, each individual will either get to paradise or to hell, and if some of us live to see the "J ohn Connor - it is time" and "iron man" scene with an establishment of the kingdom of Allah - vicegerency on the path of prophethood - on earth, we can consider it a mercy and ease for our children and others - after severe trials, with a better chance of getting to paradise and being saved from hell - only afterwards- and it's still a temporary passing stage before the very near end.

Anyways, I digress.

I believe that each human being is reincarnated as they are born through the natural process - since we existed and testified about our Rabb when we came out of the back of Adam, the clay that we get our flesh from is however shared by many and recycled via vegetation and cattle and dung and the cycle continues so it's highly unlikely that the original flesh is required for reincarnation (which is basically installation of a soul in a vessel).

When you think about it, it's a sign, the son of man heals the blind and the leper by Allah's leave, raises the dead by Allah's leave, and breathes into a bird and it is given life by Allah's leave. By and around the time of return, the process is repeated by the sons of men (and darpa), and the dajjal pretends it's like Allah, and even arrogantly claims to have supreme authority like when pharaoh claimed "ana rabbukum al a'laa" before he got K.O d out of the game.

Invasive BCI research has targeted repairing damaged sight and providing new functionality for people with paralysis. Invasive BCIs are implanted directly into the grey matter of the brain during neurosurgery. Because they lie in the grey matter, invasive devices produce the highest quality signals of BCI devices but are prone to scar-tissue build-up, causing the signal to become weaker, or even non-existent, as the body reacts to a foreign object in the brain.
In vision science, direct brain implants have been used to treat non-congenital (acquired) blindness. One of the first scientists to produce a working brain interface to restore sight was private researcher William Dobelle.

Dobelle's first prototype was implanted into "Jerry", a man blinded in adulthood, in 1978. A single-array BCI containing 68 electrodes was implanted onto Jerry’s visual cortex and succeeded in producing phosphenes, the sensation of seeing light. The system included cameras mounted on glasses to send signals to the implant. Initially, the implant allowed Jerry to see shades of grey in a limited field of vision at a low frame-rate. This also required him to be hooked up to a mainframe computer, but shrinking electronics and faster computers made his artificial eye more portable and now enable him to perform simple tasks unassisted.[32]

In 2002, Jens Naumann, also blinded in adulthood, became the first in a series of 16 paying patients to receive Dobelle’s second generation implant, marking one of the earliest commercial uses of BCIs. The second generation device used a more sophisticated implant enabling better mapping of phosphenes into coherent vision. Phosphenes are spread out across the visual field in what researchers call "the starry-night effect". Immediately after his implant, Jens was able to use his imperfectly restored vision to drive an automobile slowly around the parking area of the research institute.[33] Unfortunately, Dobelle died in 2004[34] before his processes and developments were documented.

Sounds like something out of universal soldier 1, only imagine if the camera complete with lens like a bulging out grape were connected to wifi or 4g from darpa or hollywood offices and he wasn't wearing them, now imagine the nightmares of subconsciousness. Weird that the scientist turned up dead and his process and research methods were "undocumented" despite the fact that it was phase 2 and two years into an installation, I'm sure a patent lawyer would raise their eyebrows, and so would anyone who understands fda.....
No wonder so many people wake up thinking God told them to shoot up a school - or the oklahoma building....

Closed-circuit television, also known as video surveillance, is the use of video cameras to transmit a signal to a specific place, on a limited set of monitors.

Leprosy is curable with a treatment known as multidrug therapy. Treatment for paucibacillary leprosy is with the medications dapsone and rifampicin for six months. Treatment for multibacillary leprosy consists of rifampicin, dapsone, and clofazimine for 12 months. A number of other antibiotics may also be used.
