Hills will not remain solid

Chapter Naml”- (The Ant) – 27

‘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)

 وَيَوْمَ يُنفَخُ فِى ٱلصُّورِ فَفَزِعَ مَن فِى ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَمَن فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ إِلَّا مَن شَآءَ ٱللَّهُ وَكُلٌّ أَتَوْهُ دَٰخِرِينَ 87  وَتَرَى ٱلْجِبَالَ تَحْسَبُهَا جَامِدَةً وَهِىَ تَمُرُّ مَرَّ ٱلسَّحَابِ صُنْعَ ٱللَّهِ ٱلَّذِىٓ أَتْقَنَ كُلَّ شَىْءٍ إِنَّهُۥ خَبِيرٌۢ بِمَا تَفْعَلُونَ 88

87.  And (remind them of) the Day when the Trumpet will be blown, and all who are in the heavens and the earth will be terrified, save him whom Allah willeth. And all come unto Him, humbled.


88.  And thou seest the hills; thou deemest them solid but they will be moving like passing of clouds; the doing of Allah Who perfecteth all things. Lo! He is Aware of what ye do.

87.  Wa  Yawma  yunfakhu  fis-Suuri  fa-fazi-‘a  man  fis-samaawaati  wa  man  fil-‘arzi  ‘illaa  man  shaaa-‘Allaah.  Wa  kullun  ‘atawhu  daa-khiriin.


88.  Wa  taral-jibaala  tahsabuhaa  jaamidatanw-wa  hiya  ta-murru  marras-sahaab.  Sun-‘Allaahil-laziii  ‘atqana  kulla  shay’.  ‘InnaHuu  Khabiirum-  bimaa  taf-‘aluun.



Daa-khiriina – (meek, humbled), this word is plural from daakhir, which is the subject from dakhara. Dakhara means “to be lowered with humility”. Another word “Sagaarun” has also the same meanings as daakhir for saagir i.e. humble, helpless, weak etc.


‘Atqana – {(He) perfected, made complete}, it is in past tense from the word ‘itqaan, which has been derived from taq-nun. Taq-nun means “stableness, durability and strength”. ‘Itqaan means “to fix everything at proper place”.


It is commanded: What do you ask concerning the last Day? On that Day, the Horn will be blown by ‘Israafiil (the name of an Angel who will sound the last Trumpet on the Day of Resurrection). The entire people will be terrified except those; to whom Allaah Almighty will save from perplexity. They all will come to Him humbled and bowing their heads. The mountains, which you see and think rigid at one place, will be moving as passing like clouds. Allaah Almighty has created everything with great skill. It is His Contrivance that we see the mountains solid, but on that Day; we shall see them overhead passing like clouds. In short, every thing will be ruined and reproduced as it was in the beginning. The earth will be changed, upon which Allaah Almighty will gather the people and they will be set in array. Then their deeds will be reckoned. Indeed, He is Acquainted with that which you do.
