On the Day of Resurrection, thousand of terrifying things will happen, they are the event that the Qur’an has been telling us about, and the prophet Muhammed (PBUH) explained to us.
Anas ibn Maalik (May Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “As people will be raised on the Day of Resurrection, the sky will Tatush upon them.” The Prophet’s saying, ‘Tatush upon them,’ has two possible meanings: light rain will fall down upon them from the sky or the heat will be sweltering. And Allah knows best.
And Allah (SWT) said: “Think they not that they will be resurrected (for reckoning), on a Great Day, the Day when (all) mankind will stand before the Lord of the Alamin (mankind, jinn and all that exists)?’ – al-Tahreeq Qur’an 83:4-6.
However, it is established in As-Saheeh that they will be standing in sweat that will reach halfway up their ears; in another Hadeeth, it is indicated that people will be different in that regard, each according to his deeds.
In the Hadeeth of intercession: “Verily, the sun will come near the slaves (of Allah) on the Day of Resurrection; it will be a single mile away from them. At that juncture, they will be known according to their deeds.”
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) related that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “On the Day of Resurrection, sweat will go in the earth the distance of 70 [Ratan – outstretched arms]. It will indeed reach the mouths of people or up until their ears.” Ath-Thaur, one of the narrators of the Hadeeth, wasn’t sure which it was. (Ahmad) Muslim and Bukhaaree related it as well, each with his respective chain.
In a narration related by Ibn Al-Mubaarak, ‘Abdullah ibn Al-‘Araar said, “On the Day of Resurrection, feet will be like arrows in a horn. The happy one is he who will find a place to put his feet. The sun will approach their heads until the distance separating it and their heads will be — he said one of the following – a mile or two miles. The intensity of its heat will be multiplied 99 times.”
Sun Will Remain Above Their Head At a distance of Arm Spans
Another terrific event that will happen on the Day of Resurrection is the fact that the sun will be lower near the head of humans.
Al-Waleed Ibn Muslim related that Mugheeth Ibn Summee said, “The sun will remain motionless above their head at a distance of some arm spans. And the doors of the Hellfire will be opened; its smells and poisons will breeze up to them, and its breaths will flow over them, to the degree that rivers will flow from their sweat, rivers that will be more putrefied than corpses. Meanwhile, the fasting ones will be in their tents, in the shade of the Throne.”
Jaabir (May Allah be pleased with him) related that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “At the Mawqif (where people will stand for accountability), sweat will adhere to a person until he says, ‘0 my Lord, for You to send me to the Hellfire is easier for me than the state I find myself to be in now — though he knows what is in the Hellfire in terms of severe punishment).”
– The chain of this narration is weak.
From Al-Bidaayah Wan-Nihaayah
In conclusion, the terrific event that will happen on the Day of Resurrection are really serious, and it is sad how many people don’t take the afterlife as a serious matter, however, Allah (SWT) and His prophet (PBUH) have told us about these events so that we will know what will be the end result of anyone who disbelievers the rule of Allah.
May Allah solid our faith and make our end better than we ever think of, may He forgive all our sins.
And Allah knows best.
