Soon the Last Hour will come

Surah Baniii ‘Israaa-‘iil (The Children of Israel) – 17

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast)

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

أَوْ خَلْقًا مِّمَّا يَكْبُرُ فِى صُدُورِكُمْفَسَيَقُولُونَ مَن يُعِيدُنَا قُلِ ٱلَّذِى فَطَرَكُمْ أَوَّلَ مَرَّةٍ فَسَيُنْغِضُونَ إِلَيْكَ رُءُوسَهُمْ وَيَقُولُونَ مَتَىٰ هُوَ قُلْ عَسَىٰٓ أَن يَكُونَ قَرِيبًا 51

يَوْمَيَدْعُوكُمْ فَتَسْتَجِيبُونَ بِحَمْدِهِۦ وَتَظُنُّونَ إِن لَّبِثْتُمْ إِلَّا قَلِيلًا 52


51b.  Then they will say: Who shall bring us back (to life)? Say: He Who created you at the first. Then will they shake their heads at thee, and say: When will it be? Say: It will perhaps be soon.


52.  A Day when He will call you and ye will answer with His Praise, and ye will think that ye have tarried but a little while.

51b.  Fasa-yaquuluuna  manyyu-‘iidunaa.  Qulil-lazii  fatarakum  ‘awwala  marrah. Fasa-yungi-zuuna   ‘ilayka  ru-‘uusahum  wa  yaquu-luuna  mataa  huu.  Qul  ‘asaaa  ‘any-yakuuna  qariibaa.


52.  Yawma  yad-‘uukum  fatas-tajiibuuna  bi-HamdiHii  wa  tazunnuuna  ‘illabistum  ‘illaa  qaliilaa.  (Section 5)




Yungi-zuuna – (they will shake), origin of this word is ‘Angaaz which has been derived from nagaza Nagaza means “to move, to shake”, ‘Angaaz means “to shake, to change position, to wink”.


It is commanded: These people will ask you again: Right! Then Who will return us towards the original form? You should say to them: He will bring you back to life Who created you at the first, while there was no sign of you. On this reply they will shake their heads as mock, as though they have already reached the depth of the matter; that nothing is kept in these things. Then they will ask again: When? You should say in its reply: I don’t know clearly, perhaps it will be soon. It is not so much difficult to reproduce you. By a Cry; you all will get up from your graves or wherever you will be, and by praising Allah Almighty; you entire people will be present before Him, and you will begin to say unconsciously: Ah! Why has this Hour come just now? We had stayed in the world even a little while.
