A Treasury of The Qur’an

Heaven And Hell

They underrate the might of God. But on the Day of Resurrection He will hold the entire earth in His grasp and fold up the skies in His right hand. Glory be to Him! Exalted be He above all that they associate. The Trumpet shall be blown and whoever is in the heavens and whoever is in the earth shall swoon, save whom God wills. Then it shall be blown a second time and they will stand and look around them. The earth will shine with the light of its Lord and the Book will be set in place. The prophets and witnesses shall be brought in and all shall be judged with fairness: none shall be wronged. Each soul shall be paid in full for what it has wrought, for He is well-aware of what they do. Then the disbelievers will be driven into Hell in companies. When they draw near, its gates will be opened, and its keepers will say to them: “Did not messengers come to you from among yourselves, reciting to you the signs of your Lord and warning you of the meeting of this day?” They shall say: “Yes, indeed.” And thus the punishment which the unbelievers have been promised shall be fulfilled. It shall be said: “Enter the gates of Hell, to dwell therein forever.” Evil is the dwelling-place of the arrogant. Then those who feared their Lord shall be led into heaven in companies to Paradise. When they draw near, its gates will be opened and its keepers shall say: “Peace be upon you! Well you have done. Enter Paradise and dwell therein forever.” They will say: “Praise be to God, Who has been true to His promise to us and has made us inherit the land, that we may dwell wherever we wish in Paradise.” How excellent is the wage of those that labour. And you will see the angels encircling about the Throne, hymning the praises of their Lord. Mankind will be judged with fairness and it will be said: “Praise be to God, Lord of the Worlds.”
