The day of Resurrection

The last phase of our existence, and the second stage of the life after death is Resurrection. 
This will be the beginning of the life that has no end i.e., the eternal life. This is the end of which there is no end. In the Holy Quran, Resurrection has been described by various characteristic names, each gives a definite explanation of the event related to the Resurrection. 
Though, a lot of Quranic verses and hadith of the Holy Prophet ( sallahu alayhi wasallam) and Imams are there to enlighten us about the events that will take place one after the other, but still the complete picture of resurrection is beyond our comprehension. 
It is a very vast subject. The words, terms, and expressions that we have in the vocabulary of all the spoken languages are not sufficient to encompass the variety of things related to this subjects.
Nearing the end of time, the trumpet will be blown and creation will cease to exist.  God, Almighty, says:
“And the Trumpet will be blown, and all who are in the heavens and all who are on the earth will swoon away, except him whom God wills.” (Quran 39:68)
It will be blown a second blowing, and all creation from the beginning of time till the end of time will be resurrected.  God, the Exalted, tells us:

“And the Trumpet will be blown (i.e.  the second blowing) and behold!  From the graves they will come out quickly to their Lord.” (Quran 36:51)

Day of Judgment 


As humankind awaits the decree of Almighty God, they would be standing under the sun, which would be brought close to them.  Al-Miqdad b. al-Aswad, one of the Companions, said: ‘I heard the Messenger of God saying:

“The sun will be a distance of a mile from the creation on the Day of Resurrection.  People will sink in their perspiration according to their deeds.  Some would sink in their perspiration till their ankles, while others would sink in it to their thighs and waists; yet others, would sink in it till their mouths!”‘ (Saheeh Muslim)
If anyone of us, today, was to sweat on a sunny day, they wouldn’t be able to wait to hit the showers… the Day of Resurrection will be 50 000 years long.  The Prophet said:
“That day will be 50 000 years long, after which a person will be admitted into Paradise or cast into Hell.” (Abu Dawood)
Peoples’ hearts will be pounding, not knowing what would become of them.  God describes to us the horrors of that day.  He says:
“On the Day you see it every nursing mother will be distracted from that [child] she was nursing, and every pregnant woman will abort her pregnancy, and you will see the people [appearing] intoxicated while they are not intoxicated; but the punishment of Allah is severe.” (Quran 22:2)
Even the believers who believed in truth will be severely worried.  God says:
“And they who give what they give while their hearts are fearful because they will be returning to their Lord.” (Quran 23:60)
Aishah, may God be pleased with her, said: “Are they those who drink liquor, and steal?”  The Prophet answered:
“No, Aishah, they are the ones who fast, pray and give out in charity, but are fearful that their deeds would not be accepted from them.” (Saheeh Muslim)
Court Procedure:
This will be a unique Court of Justice, where no one can deny from what he had done. Quran confirms;

“ On the Day when their tongues and their hands, and their feet will testify against them about their actions. On that Day Allah will pay them back their just dues, and they will realize that Allah is the truth.” (24:24-25)

Allah (swt) has prepared a written record of every individual. This written record will be given to him on the Day of Judgment. Quran clearly states on this matter.

“The works of each man, We have bound about his neck. On the Day of Judgment, we shall confront him with a book spread wide open, saying: Read your book, enough for you this day that your own soul should call you to account”. (17:13)

This confirms that a Video film of our whole life is being prepared and on the Day of Judgment, Allah (swt) will give the same Video cassette to us to see everything which we had done in this world.
Quran says:

“O woe unto us! what is about this book: it had not left any small or big thing without recording it thoroughly:”

The good people will be given their book in their right hands and will be asked to proceed to Jannat, while the bad people shall get their book in their left hands and will be thrown out into the Jahannum(hell).

So my dear brothers and sisters have u ever thought of this ? ? ?
Please be prepared for hereafter this life is temporary remember it always.
Stop wasting time and star repenting and thanking.You don't have much time left.What if u die the next second??
