Presence before our Lord after death
Chapter TAA-HAA – Surah – 20)
‘A-‘uu-zu Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)
(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)
قَالَ رَبِّ لِمَ حَشَرْتَنِىٓ أَعْمَىٰ وَقَدْ كُنتُ بَصِيرًا 125
|125. He will say: My Lord! Wherefor hast Thou gathered me (hither) blind, when I was wont to see?||125. Qaala Rabbi lima hashar-Taniii ‘a’-maa wa qad kuntu basiiraa.|
The people, who remained unmindful from Allaah Almighty during their worldly life, when they will be reproduced on the Day of Resurrection, then they will see nothing. They will run toward the Sound of Trumpet like blind and mad people. However, they will have this perception certainly that “we have been going to be present before our Lord”. But they will not be able to see anything with their eyes that “where they are and where are they going?” Every one of them will say with astonishment: O Lord! I had eyes in the world. I could see everything satisfactorily. What has happened with me here that I have been galloping and can see nothing?
It is found that the Real Light is acquired by means of Allaah Almighty. Apparent ayes are not able to discover the Reality. These eyes will be finished by death. And due to lack of the Light of Cognizance (Noor-e-Ma’rafat), the disbeliever will not be able to see the things of that Real World in the beginning, where he will be after coming to life again. Then he will cry: Ah! What has happened with my eyes? I cannot see anything that where have I been running?
But because the Root of Cognizance exists in the nature of human being, so although that (Cognizance) remained suppressed due to unreasonable wishes during worldly life, then that will begin to awake after death gradually. In the beginning, due to adversity of evil desires, the disbeliever will see nothing. But after that; the effect of environments will come into being slowly and gradually. And he will begin to see the Court of The Great Lord, consequence of his carelessness; nature and accounts of own deeds, the Heaven and the Hell etc. in short everything of that World. And then repentance due to wicked deeds and wonder will be begun.
