The Last Day
It is an adjectival phrase. It is mentioned in 26
Ayahs and is always paired with believing Allah the Exalted. The
stems from Root:
ء خ ر. It signifies relative order of existence of objects
with time-flow reference. It refers to existence later-last in time-flow
relative to first-prior-earlier existent object; and last to the first,
other to the earlier mentioned object. Nothing in the created realm could be
described in absolute terms—void of relativity since they have order of
The events of the Last Day of termination of our
universe and life are mentioned by choice of such words that
portray them picturesquely enabling us to perceive as if we are
watching their footage. The scenes are full of extreme horror.
The Day will start with first blow in the trumpet
(39:68). It is the sound only that has energy to disintegrate
the whole universe by breaking its equations. On that day all
living creature will die natural death, collectively. We will
study and watch the happenings of the Last Day in a separate
paper captioned "Horrible
Events of the Last Day", Allah the Exalted so willing.

"We have accepted the belief in Allah the

Know you the Christians and
Jews, turnabout of your faces confronting the East and the
West is not the Virtue-Magnanimous Conduct.
On the contrary; the
Virtue-Magnanimous Conduct is of that person: Who consciously and
heartily believed in Allah the Exalted and the Last Day; and the
Angels; and the Book:
one peculiar Book, Qur'aan; and the Chosen and
Elevated Allegiants of Allah the Exalted;

only twice in the married life] in accordance with
the known norms of the society.
However, a priority-precedence in exercise of same right for

clean-pious for you the society.
Realize that Allah the Exalted absolutely knows everything while you people do not
know about everything. [2:232]
O those/you, who
consciously proclaim to have accepted/become believers, listen!
You should not render your gifts of
generosity as worthless scum by reproach/pronouncing account of

And Allah does not appreciate and approve
those who spend their wherewithal only for pomp and show off to people;
[this evidently reflects that in fact]
and they neither believe in
Allah nor in the Last Day.
Shai'taan be a close comrade of someone-dominating his mind and heart;
thereby, he is worst for association. [4:38]
And what burden would it have
caused them if they believed in Allah the Exalted and the Last Day?
And what burden
would it have caused them if they had spent some of the sustenance Allah the Exalted has bestowed upon them?
And Allah the Exalted is Ever Aware of
