When the Life on This Earth is Completed

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ 

Shaykh ‘Utsman Nuri Tufbas wrote, in “Islam, Spirit & Form”, “When the life on this earth is completed, one of the archangels, Israfil (a.s.) would blow a horn, the sur, and with the primordial sound coming from the sur, human beings will be Resurrected, and then they will gather at the place of resurrection. 

Resurrection of men on the final day is a simple act for Allah (s.w.t.) Who Created things that did not exist before.  The Qur’an Speaks of this fact as follows: 

سُوۡرَةُ مَریَم

وَيَقُولُ ٱلۡإِنسَـٰنُ أَءِذَا مَا مِتُّ لَسَوۡفَ أُخۡرَجُ حَيًّا (٦٦) أَوَلَا يَذۡڪُرُ ٱلۡإِنسَـٰنُ أَنَّا خَلَقۡنَـٰهُ مِن قَبۡلُ وَلَمۡ يَكُ شَيۡـًٔ۬ا (٦٧) 

Man says, “What!  When I am dead, shall I then be Raised Up alive?”  But does not man call to mind that We Created him before, out of nothing? (Surah Maryam:66-67) 

سُوۡرَةُ القِیَامَة

أَيَحۡسَبُ ٱلۡإِنسَـٰنُ أَلَّن نَّجۡمَعَ عِظَامَهُ ۥ (٣) بَلَىٰ قَـٰدِرِينَ عَلَىٰٓ أَن نُّسَوِّىَ بَنَانَهُ ۥ (٤) 

Does man think that We cannot assemble his bones?  Nay, We are able to Put together, in perfect order, the very tips of his fingers. (Surah al-Qiyamah:3-4) 

سُوۡرَةُ الرُّوم

يُخۡرِجُ ٱلۡحَىَّ مِنَ ٱلۡمَيِّتِ وَيُخۡرِجُ ٱلۡمَيِّتَ مِنَ ٱلۡحَىِّ وَيُحۡىِ ٱلۡأَرۡضَ بَعۡدَ مَوۡتِہَا‌ۚ وَكَذَٲلِكَ تُخۡرَجُونَ (١٩) 

It is He Who Brings out the living from the dead, and Brings out the dead from the living, and Who Gives life to the earth after it is dead: and thus shall ye be Brought out (from the dead). (Surah ar-Rum:19) 

These verses, as words of Allah (s.w.t.), Who Takes life, and Brings the dead to life, demonstrate resurrection will no doubt take place.  In the face of such an inevitable fact, one should take into account the following declaration: ‘You will die as you have lived; you will be resurrected as you have died.’  Then one should be prepared for this day.”
