‘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)


أَءِذَا مِتْنَا وَكُنَّا تُرَابًا وَعِظَٰمًا أَءِنَّا لَمَبْعُوثُونَ 16  أَوَءَابَآؤُنَا ٱلْأَوَّلُونَ 17  قُلْ نَعَمْ وَأَنتُمْ دَٰخِرُونَ 18  فَإِنَّمَا هِىَ زَجْرَةٌ وَٰحِدَةٌ فَإِذَا هُمْ يَنظُرُونَ 19

16.  When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then, forsooth, be raised (again)?


17.  And our forefathers?


18.  Say (O Muhammad): Yea, in truth; and ye will be brought low.


19.  There is but one Shout, and lo! they behold-

16.  ‘A-‘izaa  mitnaa  wa  kunnaa  turaabanw-wa  ‘izaaman  ‘a-‘innaa  lamab-‘uusuuna


17.  ‘Awa  ‘aabaaa-‘unal-‘awwaluun.


18.  Qul  na-‘am  wa  ‘antum  daa-khiruun.


19.  Fa-‘innamaa  hiya  zajratunw-waahidatun  fa-‘izaa  hum  yanzuruun.



It is commanded: When it is said to them: You will be brought back to life again after death and you will be asked about your deeds, then they say: What did you say? After death we shall become dust. Being spoiled, our body will be mixed up in the earth. Perhaps our bones will remain in existence for a few days. Our forefathers were expired long ago. Their bones would have been disappeared. Will our bodies and the bodies of our forefathers come into existence again after being dust? We are unable to understand it. How do you say such thing contrary to reason?


As answer to their question, it is commanded: Say to them: It certainly will happen because it has been decided by Allaah Almighty. Entire human beings will be reproduced again after death. They will be rendered contemptible in the next life as a punishment who do not believe today in the life after death.


Listen concerning it that how the people will be brought back to life! The Trumpet will be blown and its Sound will shake the entire mankind. This one Sound will be enough for bringing all of them to life again after death. They entire will stand up without any delay as soon as they will hear this Sound, whether they would be in any form or condition. Being astonished they will begin to see hither and thither that how this Sound was; which raised them up.
