In the name of Allah, most Kind, most Merciful
Surah 69 (Haqqa)
*The Great Event to Come*
Verse 15-18: On that Day shall the (Great) Event come to pass. And the sky will be rent asunder, for it will that Day be flimsy, and the angels will be on its sides, and eight will, that Day, bear the Throne of thy Lord above them. That Day shall you be brought to Judgment: not an act of yours that ye hide will be hidden.
The promise of the last hour and the final account is a core aspect of belief as a Muslim. The description provided shows that what we see as stable will change on that day. Unfortunately, this mighty event is often overlooked and forgotten. A further reminder and exposition of this event is highlighted in Sura Waqia (56) Verses 1-6:
“When the Event inevitable cometh to pass, then will no (soul) entertain falsehood concerning its coming. (Many) will it bring low; (many) will it exalt; When the earth shall be shaken to its depths, And the mountains shall be crumbled to atoms, Becoming dust scattered abroad, And ye shall be sorted out into three classes…”
The significance of the event is the establishment of the day of judgement… where all our actions will be judged.
Continues tomorrow…Insha Allah
