  • Face to Face : Masrur of Paradise & Maqrur of Fire


  • Perish and…..

     

    One year passed, a hundred years and then a thousand passed away. The corpses decayed within the tombs and finally turned into dust. Cities expanded to replace the ancient tombs that later

    on became houses. Then, those houses started to fall into decay and they turned into tombs again.

     

    This cycle of life continued till the trumpet had been blown, then all that were in the heavens and all that were in the earth swooned away except those that Allah pleased.

     

    All living beings passed away. The dead gathered and both the heavens and the earth were free of their inhabitants.

     

    No sound and no whisper could be heard. No one could be seen and not a single living creature could be perceived treading on the earth or passing through the heavens. The earth became

    Totally empty except for the wind that sounded its siren.

     

    Death vanquished all living beings. However, Allah the Omnipotent, the Everlasting and the Highest remained forever established on the Throne. Ages and ages passed away.

     

    Then, Almighty Allah ordained lsrafil to blow the trumpet another time, so he took the trumpet and blew it and said, "They made not a just estimate of Allah such as is due to Him. And on the Day of Resurrection the whole of the earth will be grasped by His Hand and the heavens will be rolled up in His Right Hand. Glorified is He and high is He above all that they associate as partners with Him!"

     

    In fact, this second blowing of the trumpet ushered in the Day of Resurrection. Thus, the longest day in the history began.

     

    Allah, the Almighty, says, (Truly, We did offer Al-Amanah (the trust or moral responsibility or honesty and all the duties, which Allah has ordained) to the heavens and the earth, and the mountains, but they declined to bear it and were afraid of it (i.e. afraid of Allah'? Torment). But man bore it.)

     

    Now the heavens, the earth and the mountains should perish and only mankind should be awakened (raised up) to be asked about this trust.

     

    The impressive scene of the death of the universe was both wonderful and. horrific. The day started with total devastation, for all the laws that controlled the universe and the firm rules

    That set previously galaxies into motion were devastated.

     

    As soon as the universe started to perish the dead were enjoined to be raised from death and they submitted to the Will of Allah. They were revived again in spite of the fact that their bodies had undergone millions of cycles and alteration. The bones were decayed and decomposed. Flesh, blood and bones all turned into coal within the core of the earth, then they became dust.

     

    Verily, the dead returned to a state of existence after having been nothing. The same as they had been created out of nothing the first time.
