It would help to know if fuel pressure drops when it fails, or if spark drops out. You could hook up a fuel pressure gauge that you can see from the driver's seat, and use a real time scan tool to see what is happening when it fails.

Why does my cherokee turn off while driving.Then i restart it and it runs.ALSO the motor shakes and loses power and turns off.

I would test coil and ignition module. Module has a low speed and a high speed section, so high speed part could be bad and cause unit to die, then start right back up on low speed part.
