‘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)

وَيَوْمَ نُسَيِّرُ ٱلْجِبَالَ وَتَرَىٱلْأَرْضَ بَارِزَةً وَحَشَرْنَٰهُمْ فَلَمْ نُغَادِرْ مِنْهُمْ أَحَدًا 47

 وَعُرِضُوا۟ عَلَىٰ رَبِّكَ صَفًّا لَّقَدْ جِئْتُمُونَا كَمَا خَلَقْنَٰكُمْ أَوَّلَ مَرَّةٍۭ بَلْ زَعَمْتُمْ أَلَّن نَّجْعَلَلَكُم مَّوْعِدًا 48


47.  And (bethink you of) the Day when We remove the hills and ye see the earth a leveled plain, and We gather them together so as to leave not one of them behind.


48.  And they are set before thy Lord in ranks. (And it is said unto them): Now verily have ye come unto Us as We created you at the first. But ye thought that We had set no tryst for you.

47.  Wa  Yawma  Nusayyi-rul-jibaala  wa  taral-‘arza  baariza-tanw-wa  hasher-Naahum  falam  nugaadir  minhum  ‘ahadaa.


48.  Wa  ‘urizuu  ‘alaa  Rabbika  saffaa.  Laqad  ji’-tumuuNaa  kamaa  khalaq-Naakum  ‘awwala  marratim-bal  za-’amtum  ‘allan-Naj-‘ala  lakum-maw-‘idaa.




Nusayyi-ru – (We shall drive, We shall remove), this word has come out from sa-ya-ra. Sayr means “to walk, to remove”.


Maw-‘idan – (the Day of Judgment), its origin is wa-‘a-da. The words maw-‘id (promise, time or place) and mii-‘aad (the time of a promise, term etc.) are from the same origin. Here it aims “the Day of Resurrection”.


Baariza-tan – (opened), it aims that the earth will be a leveled plain. Neither there will be hills and nor verdure.


It is commanded: Remember that Day when the earth will be seen entirely a leveled plain. That Day will be the Day of Resurrection and We shall gather all the mankind in that Field; choosing them one by one. None of them will be left over. All human beings, who lived in the world, will be gathered at one place. And all of them will be produced before Allah Almighty duly arranged in ranks. Then they will be threatened that: Did you see? You are present personally and alone before Us leaving everything, in the same condition in which you were created at first. Otherwise you had thought and used to say also that “The Day of Resurrection is a blunder only. It is not any God’s determined thing that necessarily it would happen.” Our Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) tried his best to guide you and you used to hear the Verses of Holy Qur’an but you did not believe that “On a Day, the entire human beings would have to be present before Allah Almighty”. Look today! This is the Day of Appearance in Our Court.
