CONTRASTS: JUDGEMENT DAY:-
6:38 - There is not an animal (that lives) on the earth nor a being that flies on its wings but (forms part of) communities like you. Nothing have We omitted from the Book and they (all) shall be gathered to their Lord in the end. 859
81:4 - When the she-camels, ten months with young, are left untended;
81:5 - When the wild beasts are herded together (in human habitations);
56:4 - When the earth shall be shaken to its depth
69:14-And the earth is moved, and its mountains, and they are crushed to powder at one stroke
78:6 - Have We not made the earth as a wide expanse,
84:3 - And when the Earth is flattened out,
86:12-And by the Earth which opens out (for the gushing of springs or the sprouting of vegetations)
99:1 - When the Earth is shaken to its (utmost) convulsion,
99:2 - And the Earth throws up its burdens (from within),
3:106 - On the Day when some faces will be (lit up with) white, and some faces will be ( in the gloom of) black
75:22 – Some faces, that Day, will beam (in brightness and beauty)-
75:24 – And some faces, that Day, will be sad and dismal,
80:38 - Some Faces that Day will be beaming
80:39 - Laughing, rejoicing,
80:40 - And other faces that Day will be dust stained;
80:41 - Blackness will cover them
80:42 - Such will be the Rejecters of Allah, the Doers of Iniquity.

88:2 - Some faces, that Day, will be humiliated,
88:3 - Labouring (hard), weary -
88:8 - (Other) faces that Day will be joyful,
88:9 - Pleased with their Striving –
NOTE: 5968 – The dust on the faces of the sinners will be in contrast to the beaming light on the faces of the righteous; and the blackness in contrast to the “laughing, rejoicing” faces of the righteous. But the dust also suggests that being Rejecters of Allah, their faces and eyes and faculties were choked in dust, and the blackness suggests that being Doers of iniquity they had no part or lot in purity or Light. Another contrast may possibly be deduced: the humble and lowly may be “in the dust” in this life, and the arrogant sinners in sunshine, but the roles will be reversed at Judgement.
51:47 - With the power and skill did We construct the Firmament: For it is We Who create the vastness of space.

80:36 - And from his wife and his children,

82:6 - O man! What has seduced thee from thy Lord Most Beneficient?
82:19 - (It will be) the Day when no soul shall have power (to do) aught for another: For the Command, that Day, will be (wholly) with Allah.

70:9 - And the mountains will be like wool,
73:14 - One Day the earth and the mountains will be in violent commotion. And the mountains will be as a heap of sand poured out and flowing down.
77:10 When the mountains are scattered (to the winds) as dust;
78:7 - And the mountains as pegs
78:20 And the mountains shall vanish, as if they were a mirage.
81:3 - When the mountains vanish (like a mirage)
101:5 And the mountains will be like carded wool.
80:33 - At length, when there comes the Deafening Noise -
101:1 - The (Day) of Noise and Clamour:

70:8 - The Day that the sky will be like molten brass,
82:1 - When the Sky is cleft asunder;
84:1 - When the Sky is rent asunder,
7:54 - He created the sun , the moon and the stars (all) governed by laws under His Command.
77:8 - Then when the stars become dim;
81:2 - When the stars fall, losing their lustre
82:2 - When the Stars are scattered;
55:5 - The sun and the moon follow courses (exactly) computed;
75:9 - And the sun and moon are joined together -
81:1 - When the sun (with its spacious light) is folded up;
81:14 - (Then) shall each soul know what it has put forward.
7:37 - Who is more unjust than one who invents lie against Allah or rejects His Signs? For such, their portion appointed must reach them from the Book (of Decrees): until, when Our messengers (of death) arrive and take their souls, they say: “Where are the things that ye used to invoke besides Allah?”
NOTE:1018 – It must not be supposed that the rebels against Allah would at once be cut off in this life for their sins. They will get the portion allotted to them, including the good things of life and the chance of repentance and reformation, during their probationary period on this earth. During that period they will have a full run. After that period expires, they will be called to account. They will themselves see that the false things in which they put their trust, were false, and they will confess their sin, but it will be too late.
21:35: Every soul shall have a taste of death: And We test you by evil and by good by way of trial. To Us must ye return.

82:5 - (Then) shall each soul know what it hath sent forward and (what it hath) kept back.
82:19- (It will be) the Day when no soul shall have power (to do) aught for another:
NOTE: 6010 – The answer is suggested by a negative proposition: ‘No soul shall have power to do aught for another. This is full of meaning. Personal responsibility will be fully enforced. In this world we all depend on one another proximately, though our ultimate dependence is always on Allah, now and forever. But here a father helps a son forward, husband and wife influence each other’s destinies; human laws and institutions may hold large masses of mankind under their grip; falsehood and evil may seem to flourish for a time, because a certain amount of limited free will has been granted to man. This period will be all over then. The good and the pure will have been separated from the evil and the rebellious; the latter will have been rendered inert, and the former will have been so perfected that their wills will be in complete consonance with Allah’s Universal Will. The Command, thenceforward , will be wholly with Allah.
89:27- (To the righteous soul will be said:) “O (thou) soul, in (complete) rest and satisfaction!
89:28- “Come back thou to thy Lord – well pleased (thyself), and well-pleasing unto Him!
89:29- “Enter thou, then, among my Devotees!
89:50- “Yea, enter thou My Heaven!

56:35 – We have created ( their Companions) of special creation,
56:36 – And made them virgin pure (and undefiled)-
56:37 – Beloved (by nature), equal in age –

78:25 – Save a boiling fluid and a fluid, dark, murky, intensely cold -
88:4 - The while they enter the Blazing Fire –
88:5 - The while they are given to drink, of a boiling hot spring,
88:6 - No food will there be for them but a bitter DARI
88:7 - Which will neither :nourish nor satisfy hunger.

See: under “Judgement Day”
NOTE: 5025 - If you do not wish to go back to the wonderful things of the past, which show the power and goodness of Allah, and His justice supreme over all wrongdoing, look at the wonderful things unfolding themselves before your very eyes!
1). The space in the heavens above! Who can comprehend it but He Who made it and sustain it?
2). The globe of the earth under your feet! How great its expanse seems over sea and land, and spread out for you like a wonderful carpet or bed of rest!
3). All things are in twos: sex in plants and animals, by which one individual is complementary to another; in the subtle forces of nature, Day and Night, positive and negative electricity;, forces of attraction and repulsion: and numerous other opposites, each fulfilling its purpose, and contributing to the working of Allah’s Universe: and in the moral and spiritual world, Love and Aversion, Mercy and Justice, Striving and Rest, and so on - all fulfilling their functions according to the Artistry and wonderful Purpose of Allah. Everything has its counterpart, or pair, or complement. Allah alone is One, with none like Him, or needed to complement Him. These are noble things to contemplate. And they lead us to a true understanding of Allah’s Purpose and Message.:
THE ADJURATIONS:(of Five Signs/ Symbols - Certain of the Judgement to come)
1). Revelation is in accord with all Allah’s Signs,
2). Hereafter is inevitable,
3). We must prepare for it.
52:1 - By the Mount of Revelation;
See Note: 5038 Moses - Mount Sinai
Jesus - Mount Olives
Muhammad - Mountain of Light
52:2 - By a decree inscribed,
See Note: 5038 - Allah’s Eternal Decree reduced to writing.
52:3 - In a scroll unfolded; Spread out so that everyone who has the will can seek its guidance.
52:4 - By the much- frequented Fane;
See Note: 5039 a) The Ka’bah
b) Any Temple of House of worship dedicated to the true God.
c) The heart of man which craves with burning desire to find and worship Allah .
52:5 - By the Canopy Raised High;
See Note: 5040 - Canopy of heaven, Nature’s Temple in which all creation worships Allah.
52:6 - By the Ocean filled with swell -
See Note: 5041 - Vast, limitless, all encircling Ocean - is the material symbol of the universal unlimited, comprehensieve nature of the invisible spiritual world.
52:7 - Verily, the Doom of thy Lord will indeed come to pass.
52:11 -Then woe that Day to those that treat (Truth) as Falsehood-
NOTE: 5045 - That Day will be a Day of Woe to the wrongdoers described in two aspects, the rebels against Allah and Allah’s Truth, just as it will be a Day of Joy and Thanksgiving to the Righteous. The rebels are here described as being those who openly defied Truth and plunged into wrongdoing, or who trifled with truth, who jested with serious matter, who had not the courage to plunge openly into wrongdoing but who secretly took profit out of it, who wasted their life in doubts and petty quibbles. It is difficult to say which attitude did more harm to themselves and to others. Both are aspects of deep-seated sin and rebellion. But the mercy of Allah was open to all if they had repented and amended their lives. . .
52:17 - As to the Righteous, they will be in Gardens, and in Happiness-
53:59 - Do ye then wonder at this recital?
53:60 - And will ye laugh and not weep,-
53:61 - Wasting your time in vanities?
53:62 - But fall ye down in prostration to Allah and adore (Him)!
5124 Mere wondering will not do, even if it is the wonder of admiration. Each soul must strive and act, and Allah's Mercy will take it under its wings. (53.59)
5125 The higher issues of Life and the Hereafter are serious, and therefore all that we do in this life is serious and important. We must shun inanities and frivolities. It is no laughing time. If we only realised our own shortcomings, we should weep. But weeping by itself will not help. We must try and understand Allah and adore Him. Thus shall we be able to understand ourselves and our fellow-men. (53.60)
