BismEm


The conscientious ones with an unshakable faith often think how to create awareness among others regarding the Day of Judgment.  Many ordinary folks who seldom reflect are of the opinion that they have heard much about the Last Day and waited long enough.  Some of these people get impatient while many deviate completely.  Also, a lot of those who practice Faith as a ritual presume that the Day of Judgment is too far away, probably millions of years, and thus they needn't worry nor think much about it.

How to correct this incorrect notion that has crept into the minds of the unthinking people?

The answer is simple for those who read and understand the contents of the Noble Quran and remember it.

Almighty Allah has asserted that the day and time of the Day of Judgment will remain undisclosed until it actually happens.  None of the Prophets were given any information about it either, except that it is bound to happen sometime in the future.  Its exact day, time and year are known to Allah ONLY.

A person who has firm faith in Allah and trusts every word of His will never consider becoming slack simply because the Day of Judgment may seem far away.  Its undisclosed time will never be an excuse for a genuine believer to trail behind.  It will surely never be a reason for them to allow their trust in Allah to weaken.  A believer accepts the promise of Allah without a shred of doubt.  Whether or not the Day of Judgment is close or far is exclusively the concern of Allah only.  The concern and task of a believer during earthly existence would be to strengthen their iman and subsequently improve their conduct.

Everyone, and particularly those with weak iman who may tend to become laggards by presuming that the Last Day is far off, need to keep in mind the ultimate reality concerning their own death  -  the last day on earth of every individual.  As stated throughout the Quran, the duration from the time of death till we are raised again on the Day of Judgment - whether it be a single day or 50 million years or more - will seem to us like a day or two, or perhaps an hour or two.  After death time is naught, and time is no more required during death.

"And on the day when the Hour riseth the guilty will vow that they did tarry but an hour - thus were they ever deceived."  (30:55)

"On the day when they see that which they are promised (it will seem to them) as though they had tarried but an hour of daylight."  (46:35)


A thoughtful analogy to explain this phenomenon is when a person undergoes surgery.  From the time they are wheeled into the operating room, anesthetized and till the time they regain full consciousness could be as long as three, four or five hours or more.  Yet when they do awaken they completely lose track of time and it seems to them only a little while  from the time they were taken into the operating room.

The Day of the Decision is just as sure as death itself.  Working hard for that Day is to be done with the firm conviction of the FACT that practically as far as each one of us are concerned, the Last Day will occur minutes or hours after death.  And death is never too far.  It can happen to anyone, any where, any time.  It has happened to many already right before our eyes.

May Allah (The Most High) grant the best of guidance to all of us who look for it.  Ameen.

Mash'Allah, sister.  All your writings teach us matters that are so very important.  This is a very educative piece.  Yes, very rightly concluded .... as far as each one of us are concerned, the Day of Judgment is just a few hours after death.  It only shows how little time we have and how much of it we waste in works that carry little value outside the sphere of this world.  Not to mention, that little time is also very uncertain and can be even less than we think.

May Allah reward you to the fullest for your nice thoughts and your desire to inform others, my sister.  Ameen.

Thank you for your thoughtful comments sister Ruhi.  True this life is short and tough.  From the practical view point, the Day of Judgement comes soon after it ends.  And all we need to do is to make our best efforts in this short life to get a good report from Him on the Day of Judgment.  Even if we don't achieve our goal, we just need to try our very best. 

May Allah help those who love Him.  Ameen.

That's another dynamic piece you've written sister Heba.  May God Almighty reward you in abundance for sharing the truth.  People need to know it.  A further clarification of this topic takes me to some verses of Surah Bani Israel.

"And they say: When we are bones and fragments, shall we forsooth, be raised up as a new creation ?   Say: Be ye stones or iron Or some created thing that is yet greater in your thoughts! Then they will say: Who shall bring us back (to life). Say: He Who created you at the first. Then will they shake their heads at thee, and say: When will it be ? Say: It will perhaps be soon;  A day when He will call you and ye will answer with His praise, and ye will think that ye have tarried but a little while."  17:49-52  Surah Bani Israel

Praise be to Allah, the Greatest.

MashAllah sister Heba, what a brilliant piece you've penned.  How important and how logically true!   Yes absolutely, as far as we are concerned, each person's death and the Day of Reckoning will happen almost together.  That's the way Allah, The Greatest, has ordained it.  And all His arrangements are ever so perfect in every way.  However much we praise Him, it cannot be enough.  The most important prayer and wish for us it to acquire acceptance by Him on that Day.  I pray for strength within ourselves to make the efforts required for believers to find guidance.  And, may Allah consider our efforts appropriate by granting us the wisdom for acquiring His guidance, for only then can we make ourselves acceptable on that Day.

Salvation on the Day of Judgment will undoubtedly be the most wonderful thing for every soul.  There's NO doubt about that.  But we must know that we have to work a little hard for it in this world by putting in our best efforts shunning evil of every kind.  And the first step towards the development of will-power necessary for shunnng evil is strengthening our Faith in Him.  Without Faith, a person's will-power remains unpredictible and can sway at any time.    

Thank you so much for this work dear sister.  It cannot but deeply inspire every conscientious soul.  

Praise be to Allah, The Highest.  And peace and blessings on beloved Mohammed, the final Messenger and Seal of the Prophets.

"And unto Allah belongeth the Unseen of the heavens and the earth, and the matter of the Hour (of Doom) is but as a twinkling of the eye, or it is nearer still. Lo! Allah is Able to do all things."  (16:77)  Surah An-Nahl

Here is another verse with the very obvious reference that the Day of Judgment is not going to be a long wait. 

Alhumdulilah.

Those who fear their Lord in secret and who dread the Hour (ofdoom).21:49
Who know that they will have to meet their Lord, and that unto Him they are returning.2:46

jazak Allah sis heba  may Allah reward u for true reminder .
 u have clearly conveyed the whole message beautifuly mashallah  !  so true remembering death is importent rather than waiting of death or day of judgement.reminders of death increase the religiosity of believers being aware of the value of time when the person keeps death in his/her mind in addition to his/her ignorance of the time and place where death will overtake This becomes a strong motive to seek a good end and die in a state of abedience of Allah so such person would fill their time with good deeds.Before it is too late, all people are called to reflect on their way of life, about the purpose of existence and the end. Certainly to Allah will be the return. He made His Message clear and said:
 
And whoso desireth the Hereafter and striveth for it with the effort necessary, being a believer; for such, their effort findeth favour (with their Lord).17:19
But Allah reprieveth no soul when its term cometh, and Allah is Informed of what ye do.63:11

Lo! Allah hath bought from the believers their lives and their wealth because the Garden will be theirs: they shall fight in the way of Allah and shall slay and be slain. It is a promise which is binding on Him in the Torah and the Gospel and the Qur'an. Who fulfilleth His covenant better than Allah? Rejoice then in your bargain that ye have made, for that is the supreme triumph.9:111

I pray more and more people turn toward Allah seeking His guidance before it's too late for them.  Ignorance, materialism and skepticism have become so widespread in the world that most people, even many "Muslims," take it as a joke if you mention to them about the Day of Judgment.  They hardly understand how much precious time they are wasting, because once the soul passes out of the body, the time is over.  

Thank you so much for quoting those wonderful Verses, sister.
