Let's know Islam (203)
Welcome to this week's episode of the series Let's Know Islam. Today, we become familiar with other features of the Day of Resurrection.
Last week, we pointed out that the situation of righteous individuals and wrongdoers are different to each other on the Day of Judgement. Good-doers are happy because of their faith in God and the good deeds which they have carried out in the material world. Meanwhile, another group of individuals are sorrowful, and the ugliness of their misdeeds is evident in their countenance.
The fact of the matter is whatever mankind conducts in the material world is not wiped out. Oh the Day of Judgement, the individual's previous deeds appear in different forms and shapes. Good deeds appear in pleasant forms, while misdeeds are visualized in very ugly and frightening forms and shapes
Holy Quran has mentioned an important and cautionary point in regard to the inner nature of human deeds.
The 10th ayah of Surat al-Nisa in Holy Quran notes: "Indeed those who consume the property of orphans wrongfully, only ingest fire into their bellies, and soon they will enter the Blaze."
Focus on the true nature of deeds, acts as a strong preventive factor for those who believe in this measure, preventing them from commitment of misdeeds.
We observe that the men of God do not even think of commitment of sins, given that they have realized the true nature of deeds with their strong faith in God and their sharp minds; thereby refusing to commit misdeeds and wrongdoings. For example, given that they have realized consumption of the property of orphans is tantamount with ingesting fire, they never commit this misdeed.
On the Day of Judgement, mankind observes all of the deeds he has carried out throughout his life. On the Day of Resurrection, moments of one's life resemble packages which are opened up. If the individual has appropriately used the moments of his life, he will be happy and upbeat in the Day of Judgement. Otherwise, he will be saddened and disheartened. In regards to the Day of Resurrection, the 30th ayah of Surat Al-I'Imran in Holy Quran notes: "The day when every soul will find present whatever good it has done; and as to whatever evil it has done…"
In regard to visualization of one's deeds, a number of experts pay attention to this topic of importance from a different angle. They say that the deeds we carry out in this world and disappear in this world in the form of scattered energies, actually are not wiped out. In their view, our deeds are eternal and are archived in the file of world of nature, for good.
Currently, the development of science has proven that material and energy are never wiped out. But, they constantly change. In the view of thinkers, on the Day of Judgement, upon God's instruction, these lost energies are transformed into material in different forms. Good deeds appear in interesting and beautiful forms, while wrongdoings appear in ugly shapes.
The 49th ayah of Surat al-Kahf in Holy Quran refers to the presentation of humans' deeds on the Day of Resurrection, noting: "The Book will be set up. Then you will see the guilty apprehensive of what is in it. They will say, 'Woe to us! What a book is this! It omits nothing, big or small, without enumerating it.' They will find present whatever they had done, and your Lord does not wrong anyone."
On the Day of Judgement, everything speaks up, reporting the major and minor deeds of mankind. On the Day of Resurrection, wrongdoers are afraid of the divine court of justice, and the punishments that await them.
