For a Muslim, it is a compulsory condition of belief that a Muslim believes on the Judgment Day. Every Muslim believes that every one of them will die and be in their graves, and then there will be a final day when the world will come to its end and at that day, Allah Almighty will set up His court and reward people according to their deeds.
In Quran, Allah Almighty clearly depicts different scenarios of the judgment day. He clearly mentions the scenario and what kind of condition would the unbelievers and those who have disobeyed Allah be in. the lines below give the judgment day in light of Quran.
Allah Almighty says in Quran:
“The trumpet is blown and those in the heavens and those in the earth swoon away, except those Allah wills. Then it is blown a second time and at once they stand upright, looking on. And the earth shines with the Pure Light of its Lord; the Book is put in place; the Prophets and witnesses are brought; it is decided between them with the truth; and they are not wronged. Every self is repaid in full for what it did. He knows best what they are doing.” (39:68-70)
In these ayahs, Allah Almighty clearly sketches the whole scenario of the judgment day and the way the court will be set up. According to these ayahs, on the judgment day, the trumpet will be blown twice, once all in the heaven and earth would faint and the second time they all will rise and the formal procession would commence. The earth would be shining and all the witnesses will be called upon and every person would be rewarded or punished according to their deeds.
As far as the matter of nonbelievers is concerned, on Day of Judgment they will be in a quite painful plight. Regarding them, Allah Almighty says in Quran:
“They will say, “Alas for us! Who has raised us from our resting-place? This is what the All-Merciful promised us. The Messengers were telling the truth.” (36:52)
In this ayah, Allah Almighty tells the condition of the non-believers, who when raised from their graves will see the judgment day there will be in extreme pain and lament on their plight and then will remember the day when Messengers told them about the judgment day and they did not heed to their teachings and ridiculed any such day.
Further in Quran Allah Almighty tells about the situation and the plight in which the wrongdoers would be in the following verses:
“The Day when a wrongdoer will bite his hands and say, “Alas for me! If only I had gone the way of the Messenger! Alas for me! If only I had not taken so-and-so for a friend! He led me astray from the Reminder after it came to me.” Evil always leaves man in the lurch.” (25:27-29)
In this ayah it is evident that the wrongdoers will then lament and wish if they had stayed on the right path, had good company which followed the right path he or she would not have been in this situation.
Regarding the blood relations of lineage coming to rescue of a person on the judgment day, Allah Almighty says:
“When the Deafening Blast comes, the Day a man will flee from his brother and his mother and his father, and his wife and his children: on that Day every man among them will have concerns enough of his own.” (50-33-37)
In this ayah it is evident that on the judgment day no one would come to the rescue of anyone, rather, everyone will be concerned with him or herself. The selfishness will be to such an extent that no father no mother or no brother will come to the rescue of his siblings or off springs.
In short, the judgment day is a fact, therefore, it is imperative that a Muslim follows the message of Quran, stays on the right path so that at the Day of Judgment he or she is not amongst the ones who lament about their deeds, rather he or she must be amongst those who will rejoice at that day.
