The word eschatology means the study of last things. It is part of theology concerned with last events of history, or the ultimate destiny of humanity. However, this concept is commonly referred to as the "end of the world" or "end time".

But in Grand Qur’ān the concept of two worlds is presented and explained in detail. The subsequent era of present world is the start of a new world described by word: . It is a relational word. 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, or other to the earlier mentioned object. It is related to: the present world which has built-in semantic feature of "lowly - lower".

The doctrine of eschatology thus relates to: the present world. As against this: the Subsequent Era - the last world, the concept of eschatology would be alien to it.

Grand Qur’ān has depicted the Subsequent Era - the last world so simplistically and picturesquely that one can visualize it as a living experience exactly as he is experiencing the present world. Grand Qur’ān is par excellence in inner-referencing. Both the worlds are a living reality even by their number of mention, both are mentioned 115 times in Divine Discourse.
