SURE SIGNS OF DAY OF AL-QIYAMAH

The Sure Signs and descriptions of Al-Qiyamah in the Qur’an are generally agreeable as follows:

1) There is a set time for it;
He questions: “When is the Day of Resurrection?” At length, when the sight is dazed and the moon is buried in darkness, and the sun and moon are joined together that Day will Man say; “Where is the refuge?”
Qur’an 75.6-10
2) That this event is inevitable;
In that is a Sign for those who fear the penalty of the Hereafter: that is a Day for which mankind will be gathered together: that will be a Day of Testimony. Nor shall We delay it but for a term appointed.
Qur’an 11.102-7
3) The verses revealing Al-Qiyamah will be collected from all over the Qur’an, promulgated, recited and explained;
Move not thy tongue concerning the (Revelation of Al-Qiyamah), to make haste therewith. It is for Us to collect it and to promulgate it: But when We have promulgated it, follow thou its recital: Nay more, it is for Us to explain it.
Qur’an 75.16-19
Concerning what are they disputing?
Concerning the Great News. [5889]
About which they cannot agree.
Verily, they shall soon (come to) know!
Verily, verily they shall soon (come to) know!
surah 78:1-5 Al Naba’ (The Great News)
“5889. Great News: usually understood to mean the News or Message of the Resurrection.”
Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur’an, Amana Corporation, 1989.
4) Prophesied Sure Signs of Allah (SWT) will confirm Al-Qiyamah;
Nafas al Rachman, breath of the Merciful, experienced daily by those taking part in Al-Qiyamah (The Resurrection) (Photo taken 1st August 2008 in Russia of the Nafas al Rachman which, though invisible to the naked eye, can be felt as Cool Breeze or Wind of the Resurrection flowing from hands, head and other parts of the body.)
We will show them Our signs in all the regions of the earth and in their own souls until they clearly see that this is the truth.
Qur’an 41.53
It is Allah who sends forth the Winds so that they raise up the Clouds,
And We drive them to a Land that is dead,
And revive the earth therewith after its death:
Even so (will be) the Resurrection!
surah 35:9 Fatir
5) Qur’an to be used as Allah’s (SWT) Warning to humankind;
We know best what they say; And thou are not one to overawe them by force. So admonish with the Qur’an such as fear My Warning!
Qur’an 50.45
 
6) During Al-Qiyamah Allah (SWT) will not address those who veil His Revelations by distorting the Qur’an;
Those who conceal Allah’s revelations in the Book, and purchase for them a miserable profit – They swallow into themselves naught but Fire: Allah will not address them on the Day of Resurrection, nor purify them: Grievous will be their Penalty. They are the ones who buy error in place of Guidance, and torment in place of Forgiveness. Ah! What boldness (they show) for the Fire!
Qur’an2.174-6
He will return you (on the Day of Judgment) reverted back to when you were first created. A section guided, and a section will go astray.
Qur’an 7.30
7) The messengers of Allah (SWT) on Earth will deliver Good News of Al-Qiyamah, and they must prevail;
Allah has decreed: “It is I and My messengers who must prevail”: For Allah is One full of strength, able to enforce His Will. Thou will not find any people who believe in Allah and the Last Day, loving those who resist Allah and His Messenger, even though they were their fathers or their sons, or their brothers or their kindred. For such He has written Faith in their hearts, and strengthened them with a Spirit from Himself. And he will admit them to Gardens, beneath which Rivers flow, to dwell therein (forever.) Allah will be well pleased with them, and they with Him. They are the Party of Allah. Truly it is the Party of Allah that will achieve Felicity.
Qur’an 58.21
8) Believers will be bitterly divided over the Good News;
Concerning what are they disputing? Concerning the Great News about which they cannot agree. Verily, they shall soon (come to) know! Verily, verily they shall soon (come to) know!
Qur’an 78.1-5
So he gave nothing in charity, nor did he pray! – But on the contrary, he rejected Truth and turned away! Then did he stalk to his family in full conceit! Woe to thee, (O man!), yea, woe! Again, woe to thee, (O man!), yea, woe!
Qur’an 75.31-35
9) Jesus (pbuh) would be one of the Signs of the Hour;
And (Jesus) shall be a Sign (for the coming of) the Hour (of Judgment: therefore have no doubt about the (Hour), but follow ye Me: this is a Straight Way.
Qur’an 43.61
10) Qur’an to be used as proof of authenticity to humankind regarding the Message of Al-Qiyamah;
Verily in this (Qur’an) is a Message for people who would (truly) worship Allah. We sent thee not, but as a Mercy for all creatures.
Qur’an 21.106-7
11) There will be a Caller from a place quite near who will declare and commence the Resurrection;
Verily in this is a Message for any that has a heart and understanding, or who gives ear and earnestly witnesses (the Truth). . . And listen for the Day when the Caller will call out from a place quite near. The Day when they will hear a (mighty) Blast in Truth: That will be the Day of Resurrection.
Qur’an 50.37-42
12) Many humans will be unaware that Al-Qiyamah is taking place;
And on the day when the Hour riseth the guilty will vow that they did tarry, but an hour – Thus were they ever deceived. But those to whom knowledge and faith are given will say: “The truth is, ye have tarried, by Allah’s decree, until the Day of Resurrection. This is the Day of Resurrection, but ye used not to know.”
Qur’an 30.55-57
13) During Al-Qiyamah Allah (SWT) will not purify those who hide His Revelations by misinterpreting the Qur’an;
Those who conceal Allah’s revelations in the Book, and purchase for them a miserable profit – They swallow into themselves naught but Fire: Allah will not address them on the Day of Resurrection, nor purify them: Grievous will be their Penalty. They are the ones who buy error in place of Guidance, and torment in place of Forgiveness. Ah! What boldness (they show) for the Fire!
Qur’an 2.174-6
14) Faces of those who believe that Al-Qiyamah has commenced will be nadirah (shining and radiant), while those of disbelievers basirah (dark, gloomy, sad and frowning);
Some faces, that Day, will beam (in brightness and beauty) – Looking towards their Lord; And some faces, that Day, will be sad and dismal.
Qur’an 75.22-24

 

THE UNIVERSAL EXPECTATION OF THE MAHDI (MESSIAH, COMFORTER)

Then there is expectation that “the Mahdi, according to Islam, and in particular its Shiite branch, is the Savior to come at the time of the Last Judgment to save the world. It is interesting to recall that Mahdi, in Sanskrit, is the contraction of Ma Adi (Primordial Mother) in the same way that the returning Savior according to Buddha, Maitreya, is a contraction of Ma Treya (Trigunatmika). The function of the Mahdi is similar to those attributed to the Kalki of the Hindus, the Maitreya of the Buddhists or the Christ King of the Christians.”
In addition to verses of the Holy Qur’an there are many traditions, hadiths, sayings of Imams and Muslim scholars contributing to a common consensus of the signs of the “Hour” which, if taking the religious pulse of modern times, raises the question of whether these things are already upon us:
“The Apostle of God said: `There will come a time for my people when there will remain nothing of the Qur’an except its outward form and nothing of Islam except its name and they will call themselves by this name even though they are the people furthest from it. The mosques will be full of people but they will be empty of right guidance. The religious leaders (Fuqaha) of that day will be the most evil religious leaders under the heavens; sedition and dissension will go out from them and to them will it return.’ ” -ibn Babuya, Thawab ul-A’mal
All these momentous events are to be preceded by warnings and announcements attempting to bring people back to the religion of Allah (SWT) and the Straight Path, after they have divided themselves into factions and sects which, “disown each other and curse each other” (surah 29:25). A warning to precede the penalty, which must be delivered before any punishment is meted to the transgressors, is a cardinal sign of Allah’s (SWT) mercy and justice. Any religious scholar preaching that Allah’s (SWT) Wrath of Doomsday will erupt suddenly on this unsuspecting world is surely deceived by Iblis. The following verses assure the arrival of messengers or apostles before any chastisement:
Whoever goes aright, for his own soul does he go aright; and whoever goes astray, to its detriment only does he go astray: nor can the bearer of a burden bear the burden of another, nor do We chastise until We raise an apostle.
Qur’an 17.15
And if We had inflicted on them a penalty before this, they would have said: “Our Lord! If only Thou hadst sent us a messenger, we should certainly have followed Thy Signs before we were humbled and put to shame.
Qur’an 20.134
Nor was thy Lord the one to destroy a population until He had sent to its center a messenger, rehearsing to them Our Signs; nor are We going to destroy a population except when its members practice iniquity.
Qur’an 28.59
