Will Resurrection be Physical or Spiritual?

MSA quoted J and wonders: "Will u be meeting the Lord in person on Judgment Day." - J. 
Will the resurrection of humans, Jinns and idols on the Day of Judgment be physical, or their spirits would be raised? An answer to this question will help answer your interesting question! 

Answer: In Surah Yasin it states: This Day We will seal [on] their mouths, and will speak to Us their hands, and will bear witness their feet about what they used to earn.

MSA quotes and asks: "In Surah Yasin it states: This Day We will seal [on] their mouths, and will speak to Us their hands, and will bear witness their feet about what they used to earn." 
Is the above statement a literal or allegorical one? If it is literal, then would human hands get vocal cords to speak to Allah, and their feet have eyes to bear witness to what the bearers of feet had done during their stay on earth? Kindly respond. Thanks. 

My Response: In Surah Fussilat (Explained in Detail), it states: 

2 A Revelation from (Allah), Most Gracious, Most Merciful;-
3 A Book, whereof the verses are explained in detail;- a Qur'an in Arabic, for people who understand;-
4 Giving good news and admonition: yet most of them turn away, and so they hear not.

19 On the Day that the enemies of Allah will be gathered together to the Fire, they will be marched in ranks. 
20 At length, when they reach the (Fire), their hearing, their sight, and their skins will bear witness against them, as to (all) their deeds.
21 They will say to their skins: "Why bear ye witness against us?" They will say: "Allah hath given us speech,- (He) Who giveth speech to everything: He created you for the first time, and unto Him were ye to return.
22 "Ye did not seek to hide yourselves, lest your hearing, your sight, and your skins should bear witness against you! But ye did think that Allah knew not many of the things that ye used to do! 
23 "But this thought of yours which ye did entertain concerning your Lord, hath brought you to destruction, and (now) have ye become of those utterly lost!"  
24 If, then, they have patience, the Fire will be a home for them! and if they beg to be received into favour, into favour will they not (then) be received.
54 Ah indeed! Are they in doubt concerning the Meeting with their Lord? Ah indeed! It is He that doth encompass all things! 

This might also be of interest: 

In Surah Az-Zumar, it states: 

53 Say: "O my Servants who have transgressed against their souls! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah: for Allah forgives all sins: for He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
54 "Turn ye to our Lord (in repentance) and bow to His (Will), before the Penalty comes on you: after that ye shall not be helped.
55 "And follow the best of (the courses) revealed to you from your Lord, before the Penalty comes on you - of a sudden while ye perceive not!-
56 "Lest the soul should (then) say: 'Ah! Woe is me!- In that I neglected (my duty) towards Allah, and was but among those who mocked!'-
57 "Or (lest) it should say: 'If only Allah had guided me, I should certainly have been among the righteous!'- 
58 "Or (lest) it should say when it (actually) sees the penalty: 'If only I had another chance, I should certainly be among those who do good!'
59 "(The reply will be:) 'Nay, but there came to thee my Signs, and thou didst reject them: thou wast Haughty, and became one of those who reject faith!'"
60 On the Day of Judgment wilt thou see those who told lies against Allah;- their faces will be turned black; Is there not in Hell an abode for the Haughty?
61 But Allah will deliver the righteous to their place of salvation: no evil shall touch them, nor shall they grieve.
62 Allah is the Creator of all things, and He is the Guardian and Disposer of all affairs.
63 To Him belong the keys of the heavens and the earth: and those who reject the Signs of Allah,- it is they who will be in loss.
64 Say: "Is it some one other than Allah that ye order me to worship, O ye ignorant ones?"
65 But it has already been revealed to thee,- as it was to those before thee,- "If thou wert to join (gods with Allah), truly fruitless will be thy work (in life), and thou wilt surely be in the ranks of those who lose (all spiritual good)".
66 Nay, but worship Allah, and be of those who give thanks.
