Founder’s Corner: Resurrection

By Dr. Emdad Khan

As Muslims, we believe   in the life after death.

We are born, we will die, and we will be resurrected, and we will account for our activities as recorded by two angels seated in our two shoulders.

But how we give proof, for normal human being.

Allah swt compares resurrection like reviving dead earth after rain and also human being revived after sleep, as sleep is considered minor death.

In surah Fussilat, A39, Allah swt, explains, 41:39

وَمِنْ ءَايَـٰتِهِۦٓ أَنَّكَ تَرَى ٱلْأَرْضَ خَـٰشِعَةً فَإِذَآ أَنزَلْنَا عَلَيْهَا ٱلْمَآءَ ٱهْتَزَّتْ وَرَبَتْ ۚ إِنَّ ٱلَّذِىٓ أَحْيَاهَا لَمُحْىِ ٱلْمَوْتَىٰٓ ۚ إِنَّهُۥ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

41:39, And among His signs is that you see the earth devoid of life,

but as soon as We send down rain upon it, it begins to stir ˹to life˺ and swell.

Indeed, the One Who revives it can easily revive the dead.

He is certainly Most Capable of everything.

Under Covid-19, Locked Down, stay home, Allah swt has given us an opportunity to know Him, and build our legacy  by doing good to others,  in turn Allah  swt will make our life  peaceful  and give  us tranquility

We all have to return to Him, by spending only one morning or one evening or only an Hour in this life.

Let us ponder on Resurrection.  As we have seen our friends and family members leave us for good, never to return. For just society, when some is wronged unjustly, God will arrange the ultimate account for every wrongdoing, no one will be wronged and every one will be reward according to his/her Acton.

With Salaam and Regards
