 BismEm


"And the foremost in the race, the foremost in the race:  56:10
A multitude of those of old   56:13
And a few of those of later time.   56:14

And those on the right hand; what of those on the right hand ?  56:27
A multitude of those of old    56:39
And a multitude of those of later time.   56:40

And those on the left hand: What of those on the left hand ?   56:41
In scorching wind and scalding water"  56:42



These Verses have so much depth, Subhan'Allah, and I feel very curious to know more.  Thus the Great Quran always tells us to ponder, think and reflect.   Subhan'Allah.   Mark the words of the Verses quoted above.  The foremost in the race or the forerunners on the Day of Judgement is the category of the most righteous who will enter Paradise.  They will consist of a multitude of those of early times and fewer of those of later times.    Then comes the category of those on the right hand.   These people are also righteous but at a slightly lower level compared to the forerunners, as I understand.  They too will enter Paradise and will be a multitude of those of early times and a multitude of those of later times.  Maybe these Verses reflect that (the forerunners or the foremost in the race)  the righteousness and purity in the human heart was more to be found in olden times compared to later times.   Your opinion?

And finally comes the category of those in the left hand (V.56:41) who are unrighteous disbelievers rotting in Hellfire.

Absolutely, very thoughtfully perceived Sister.    Just look what's happening to this world at the moment.  Leading your life according to the rules of Allah is either viewed as a joke or in more hardline circles seen as something that needs to stopped or abolished.  And it's people with such mindset who are supposed to be in charge of the modern world.  The fact that Allah Almighty with HIS immense Bounty and Mercy agrees to bestow the second level of righteousness to a multitude of those of later times is much too kind of Him.    Indeed those foremost in the race in later times are very few.

Such an important point The Almighty has elucidated in these Verses.   All praise be to You, أَللّٰه عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ

Very true Sis.   I've thought of exactly that, many times.

This is amazing.    All praise be to YOU ya ALLAH.   

And yet another remarkable prophecy of the Glorious Quran. 

May we all keep trying our best for HIS guidance until we come to the end of our journey.  Nothing more important than that.

Ameen ya Allah.

For sure very thoughtfully perceived Sis Heba.    And yes, Sis Zeynab, so true.  The mentality of the majority, particularly the powerful ones, is enough evidence to show the truth of those Verses of Surah Al-Waqiah.
