  • Quran 23:112-115 – Life Of This World Of 1 Day Or Part Of 1 Day

    Posted by Muhammad Talha on January 2, 2023 at 7:07 am

    When people will say this on the judgement day, will they say it right after they will be made alive or do they see it after they see how long the day of judgement is?

    I mean will they be commenting on the life of the world independently or in comparison to day of qayamat?

      God) says: For how many years did you stay on earth? They reply: We stayed for a day or part of a day. Ask of those who are able to keep count of this. Says He (God): You stayed but for a short while, if only you had known (how short it was to be and acted accordingly)! Or did you think that We created you in vain, and that you should devote all your time to play and entertainment, and that you would not be brought back to Us? (Qur’an, Surah al-Mu’minun, 23:112-115).

    It is their subjective feeling, therefore they would be different.

    See the following verses

    يَتَخَافَتُونَ بَيْنَهُمْ إِن لَّبِثْتُمْ إِلَّا عَشْرًا ‎﴿

    ١٠٣﴾‏ نَّحْنُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا يَقُولُونَ إِذْ يَقُولُ أَمْثَلُهُمْ طَرِيقَةً إِن لَّبِثْتُمْ إِلَّا يَوْمًا

    The comments are an independent guess and is right in accordance with how we humans comment on our past life at times (e.g. it went like a flash, it was just a matter of yesteday etc etc.). This becomes further clear in Quran 20:103-104 where someone would guess 10 days instead of one. This is not an actual quantification at their end, rather the same human linguistics which we adopt in showing the temporary nature of the past or this life specifically when seen in the hindsight.
