 BismEm


This question came to my mind after reading Verse 21:104 today. 

"The Day when We shall roll up the heavens as a recorder rolls up a written scroll. As We began the first creation, We shall repeat it. (It is) a promise (binding) upon Us. Lo! We are to perform it."  (21:104)  Al-Anbiya.

As you can see, it's a wonderfully overwhelming Verse and a thoroughly inspiring reminder.  I am asking myself that on the Last Day will only the earth be destroyed or the entire heavens?  Of course, only Allah would have the answer.  But would anyone have an opinion on this topic?

Also, when Allah says "As We began the first creation, We shall repeat it."  What might this be referring to?

Obviously Verse 21:104 indicates the destruction on the Last Day which will include destruction of the earth and beyond.  In my opinion, this definitely includes the destruction of the solar system and maybe also beyond it.  But exactly how much of the universe or the heavens might be destroyed is known to Allah only.  The universe is very vast.  It's infinite from the human perspective.  Therefore, none except Allah knows of the extent of its destruction on the Last Day. 

Within our solar system (which includes all planets, their moons all moving on their different orbits, and the sun) there is a balance between all bodies based on the power of gravitation, therefore destruction of earth or any other planet within this solar system will apparently disturb that balance, creating chaos in the entire solar system resulting in its destruction.   What kind of far-reaching affect this would have on the rest of the universe is only known to Allah. 

The words in Verse 21:104 that say "As We began the first creation, We shall repeat it."  refers to the resurrection of the dead .. everyone will be raised, questioned and their fate decided by Allah.   This obviously refers to the inhabitants of this earth.  Everyone will then be assigned the next life either in Paradise or Hellfire which will be permanent.

And only Allah knows best.

JazekAllah khair.  Thank you for your opinion, my sis. 

May Allah Almighty grant all of us the maximum of guidance prior to that Day.  What a Day it will be !!  Those who have worked hard for it will welcome it while the heedless will dread it. 

O Allah, upon Your Name only will I die and live.

Very, very nicely explained as always sister Heba. 

We need to beg Allah each single day of our earthly lives with the necessary efforts of hard work to grant us success on that Day.  Ameen, my dearest Allah, ya Rab-ul-Alameen. 

Yes, sis Ruhi.  I too like your du'a very much.  InshAllah, will recite it daily.

This is another excellent topic which we discussed in our fortnightly Zoom discussion yesterday.  Thank you Sister Heba, and thank Sister Ruhi for the question.  I read out Sister Heba's explication. 

By reading Surah Al-Qiyamah V.75:8-9  in which The Almighty describes the Last Day "And the moon is eclipsed And sun and moon are united,"  This refers to the sun and the moon colliding.   So, if the sun in the solar system collides with the moon, it will likely effect other planets too, at least those planets that are closer to the earth  or closer to the sun like Mercury, Venus and Mars and they too will likely be destroyed.  But only Allah Almighty has the precise knowledge of this aspect and the extent of its destruction.  It's very possible that the fallout of this destruction will be beyond our solar system.  And of course we do know for sure that planet earth will be completely finished.

Very correct observation brother TS.    I had put up some similar questions earlier - Some questions on Surah Al-Qiyamah.

Yes, well perceived brother.

Ya Allah, think of those who will live in that era of this planet to watch the destruction on the Final Day.   InshAllah, the believers will be protected.  But for the disbelievers ... just imagine .. .. it will be the hardest day ever.

May Allah Almighty protect us and guide us so we never face His wrath.  Ameen ya Rab.

Ameen, ameen.   That's true Sister.  It will be a very, very tough day for those who watch that destruction among the disbelievers.
