Hadith Explanation

Visualize the Day of Resurrection

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Whoever wants to visualize the Day of Resurrection, let him recite, ‘When the sun is wound round, loses its light and is overthrown’ (Surah Takweer), ‘When the heaven is cleft asunder’ (Surah Infitaar), and ‘When the heaven is split asunder’ (Surah Inshiqaaq).” [Tirmidhi]

These three Surahs deal specifically with the Day of Resurrection. They describe how the sky will be split and cleft asunder, how the sun will be wound round, how the stars and planets will fall and be scattered, and other terrors that will happen on that Day. People will come forth from their graves to either prisons (in Hell) or palaces (in Paradise), after their records have been examined and they have been taken by their right or left hands, or seized from behind.

“Say (O Muhammad): ‘Truly, those of old, and those of later times, all will surely be gathered together for an appointed meeting of a known Day.’” [Quran: Surah Waqiah, Ayaat 49-50]
