The Day Of Resurrection – Tafseer Soorah An-Nabaa by Shawana Aziz

Belief in the Day of Resurrection gives meaning and purpose to our brief stay in this transient world. It is the believer’s goal to win the Pleasure of His Lord by worshiping Him alone, fulfilling His Commands and refraining from His Prohibition during his worldly life-span. On the Day of Judgment, his fate will be decided in accordance with his record of deeds; he who fulfils his obligations will be rewarded with eternal bliss in Paradise, and he, who fails to be a believer will be doomed to eternal Hell-Fire.
Those who reject the idea of being brought back to life are unable to understand the reality of this life and are ever confused about what lies beyond death. In their bewilderment, they concoct mysterious stories about what, if anything, happens to the soul after death.
Those who reject resurrection also cannot explain why certain things happen like, birth and death, why some people suffer while others commit the most heinous crimes against humanity and go unpunished?
Such uncertainty in belief causes misery in life. Self-indulgence overwhelms man and he races against time to achieve physical pleasures – by hook or by crook – for fear that his time will come to an end before he can enjoy life’s pleasures. Destructive behavior and immoral attitudes take the lead because disbelief in resurrection makes following any moral principle worthless. Man becomes inconsiderate of his fellow men. Consequently, the whole society suffers from chaos, greed, transgressions and intolerance.
On the other hand, a believer in resurrection focuses on his ultimate goal and does not let trivial pleasures of the world distract him. He is always satisfied with little provision and his soul is free from cravings and greed because he knows that what is in store for him in the Hereafter is much more than this world can offer. The Prophet (S) said, “The world is a prison for the believer and a paradise for the disbeliever.” [Saheeh Muslim].
