Surah Al-Hajj, Verse 1:
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اتَّقُوا رَبَّكُمْ إِنَّ زَلْزَلَةَ السَّاعَةِ شَيْءٌ عَظِيمٌ
O mankind! Fear your Lord and be dutiful to Him! Verily, the earthquake of the Hour (of Judgement) is a terrible thing.
He (swt) goes on to describe the events of that day:
“The Day you shall see it, every nursing mother will forget her nursling, and every pregnant one will drop her load, and you shall see mankind as in a drunken state, yet they will not be drunken, but severe will be the Torment of Allah.” [22:2]
Indeed, the agony of the hour is very frightening. One will feel so much pain he will appear to be as if he is drunk i.e out of his mind! The nursing mother will forget her young one; see how merciful we are with our young ones, we would deprive ourself of so many things just so they are happy, what then will make us forget them completely? & yet again, the pregnant one would deliver her baby, not a care about the state of the baby? Subhanallah
And it out of the mercy of the Most Merciful that He warns of such a day & tells us to have taqwa (conciousness, fear) of Him so that we won’t have to face such, as on that day, the severity of the ones punishment will be according to his sin; some will be get to be under a shade while for some, they will drown in their sweat, May Allah (swt) protect us all, amin.
We implore Allah to gift us with more from His ‘Gems’ & make of those who live with the whole Qur’an, in heart & in mind, ameen
