Doubt in the Hereafter

Chapter “SABAA’” – (Saba) – 34

‘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)


وَمَا يَنزِلُ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ وَمَا يَعْرُجُ فِيهَا وَهُوَ ٱلرَّحِيمُ ٱلْغَفُورُ 2  وَقَالَ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ لَا تَأْتِينَا ٱلسَّاعَةُ قُلْ بَلَىٰ وَرَبِّى لَتَأْتِيَنَّكُمْ عَٰلِمِ ٱلْغَيْبِ 3a

2b.  and that descendeth from the heaven and that which ascendeth into it. And He is the Merciful, the Forgiving.


3a.  Those who disbelieve say: The Hour will never come unto us. Say: Nay, by my Lord, but it is coming unto you surely. (He is) the Knower of the Unseen.

2b. wa  maa  yanzilu  minas-samaaa-‘i  wa  maa  ya’-ruju  fiihaa.  Wa  Huwar-Rahiimul-Gafuur.


3a.  Wa  qaalallaziina  kafaruu  laa  ta’-tiinas-Saa-‘ah.  Qul  balaa  wa  Rabbii  lata’-ti-yannakum  ‘Aalimil-Gayb.



And He (Allaah Almighty) knows also that what descends from the heaven and what ascends therein. He is Aware of the sins and errors of His servants, but does not seize themt immediately by the fortune of His Mercy and forgives their mistakes and sins, because He is the Merciful and the Pardoner.


These people, who do not believe in Allaah Almighty, say fearlessly: The Hour is nothing, so there is no danger in its coming. Say to them: The Hour will surely come whether you believe in it or deny. I say by my Lord, Who is the Knower of the Unseen that certainly it will come and seize all of you.


Those people deny the Day of Resurrection who do not have belief in Allaah Almighty. They cannot disbelieve in the Judgment Day who believe in Allaah Almighty and are convinced of His Attribute and Glory, particularly at such time when Holy Qur’an has described clearly that mankind will be held responsible of personal deeds in accordance with the Command of Allaah Almighty. Reward of good deeds and punishment of wicked deeds will be given to everyone, but full reward or punishment cannot be given in this world, because this world will be over very soon. Accordingly, a second life will be bestowed for this purpose which will begin with effect from the General Resurrection.
