Surah Hajj (22) 12/11/2015


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sura Hajj (22)

The frightening reality of the day of Judgement

Verse 1&2 “O People! Fear your Lord. The catastrophe of the Last Hour shall be terrible indeed: The Day you shall see it, every mother giving suck shall forget her suckling-baby, and every pregnant female shall drop her load (unformed): you shall see mankind as in a drunken riot, yet not drunk: but dreadful will be the wrath of Allah.”

Allah begins this sura reminding the reader of the terror of the  Day of Judgment. The terror will be as a result of people realising that the end is upon them and that the Day of reckoning is upon them.   Upon that realisation they are terror stricken and that which a mother holds dearest to her, namely her suckling, will be of no consequence to her.  To an observer this can only happen to one who is intoxicated, but the reality of the accountability will cause people to behave in such a way so as to abandon those things nearest and dearest to them.  The escape for dear life and hoping to escape accountability will cause miscarriage of the unborn child, due to physical distress, and the atmosphere will be one of utmost chaos.  Cross reference sura 80:33-42.
