  • Welfare And Wellbeing Of Humans In The Life Of Judgement Day

    Posted by Abdul Sattar Ahmed on May 30, 2023 at 10:10 am


    Im currently listening to audio book of when life begins by Abu Yahya (not even halfway through). One thing that has personally bothered me is the life during judgement day after resurrection.

    The type of imagery present that the vast majority of not each everyone of us will be stressed, anxious and miserable on that day makes me feel uneasy as it feels like heading towards an inevitable doom before being judged and put into the final abide. As it is it’s unbearable to be in a stressful/anxious state for a couple of minutes but being in that state for a timespan that is far larger that a normal lifetime(thousand or millions of years) sounds terrifying and morbid.

    My question is that what is the truth about that life? If it true that even borderline good/borderline jannati/people who scored 50s out of 100 in the exam of this life also have to go through that “torture” before their judgement has passed. Plz send light on this and enlighten if there’s anything one can do to avoid this during the life of judgement. Thanks!

    إِنَّ الَّذِينَ سَبَقَتْ لَهُم مِّنَّا الْحُسْنَى أُوْلَئِكَ عَنْهَا مُبْعَدُونَ. لَا يَسْمَعُونَ حَسِيسَهَا وَهُمْ فِي مَا اشْتَهَتْ أَنفُسُهُمْ خَالِدُونَ. لَا يَحْزُنُهُمُ الْفَزَعُ الْأَكْبَرُ وَتَتَلَقَّاهُمُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ هَذَا يَوْمُكُمُ الَّذِي كُنتُمْ تُوعَدُونَ

    “However, those who have been promised a good fate by us [123] will be kept away from it. They will not even listen to its sound and will forever remain in a bliss they desire [124]. That great commotion [125] will not make them the slightest sorrowful and the angels of God will heartily welcome them, and will say: “This is that day of yours which you would be promised of.”

    (Quran 21:101-103)

    (Excerpt from Al-Bayan: Javed Ahmed Ghamidi)

    (English Rendering by Dr. Shahzad Saleem)


    [123]. This promise is mentioned earlier in verse 94.

    [124]. This is a reference to the fact that these people will never get bored by the monotony of whatever is given to them nor get tired of it and desire something new. Imam Amin Ahsan Islahi writes:

    Human beings are species who have a will and intention. For this reason, they prefer the greatest of bliss on their own conditions. To give due regard to this requirement of their nature, the Almighty has made Paradise for the believers in such a way that they can create variety according to what they desire. Not the slightest hindrance will be a barrier to any of their wishes. Obviously, this eternal bliss and creation of diversity whenever desired is something which the greatest of emperors ruling this world neither had nor can ever have. (Amin Ahsan Islahi, Tadabbur-i Qur’an, vol. 5, 193)

    [125]. This is a reference to the apprehension and calamity with which all the universe will be struck when the trumpet is blown. The horrific picture of that time can be seen in the surahs of the last group.


    Please also refer to the following comments of Ghamidi Sahab from 1:01:42 to 1:04:24

    Im sorry Umer Bhai didn’t quite understand what your trying to say above and having said that it didn’t answer my question (didn’t find anything in Ghamidi Sahibs Clip either for that matter of fact 😅). Could you perhaps explain in a more simple/straight forward way. Apologies once again 🙏

      This is answer to the point what can we do to avoid any sort of trouble (torture/stress/anxiety) on that day of judgment. To which Quran has itself given the answer that the ones who profess faith and do good deeds (as per Quran 21:94) will be kept away from any sort of trouble on the day of judgement as mentioned in the verses shared in the above reply. It will turn out to be a day of blessing for the pious instead. This is what Ghamidi Sahab is also referring in the link shared above.

      Wherever Quran talks about stress, anxiety and torture, it is always for the people who rejected the message of Allah, as can be seen in the following verses of Quran:

      Quran 74:8-10, Quran 75:22-25, Quran 54:6-8, Quran 54:46, Quran 25:25-27, Quran 20:100-112, Quran 20:124, Quran 57:12-13, Quran 17:97, Quran 6:31, Quran 39:60, Quran 39:69-70, Quran 21:40, Quran 21:47, Quran 21:97, Quran 67:27, Quran 70:43-44.

      As for the borderline cases, Quran is silent with regards to this point, but the solution to prevent any such condition is given in the Quran, which in broader terms is Faith and good deeds and these good deeds can further be divided into Al-Hikmah (Morality) and Al-Kitab (Shariat) given in Quran and Sunnah.
