1. I do call to witness the Resurrection Day;
2. And I do call to witness the self-reproaching Spirit.
3. Does man think that We cannot assemble his bones?
4. Nay, We are able to put together in perfect order, the very tip of his fingers.
5. But man wishes to do wrong (even) in the time in front of him.
6. He questions: "When is the Day of Resurrection?"
7. At length, when the sight is dazed
8. And the moon is buried in darkness
9. And the sun and moon are joined together that Day will Man say;
10. "Where is the refuge?"
11. By no means! No place of safety!
12. Before the Lord (alone), that Day will be the place of rest.
13. That Day will Man be told (all) that he put forward, and all that he put back.
14. Nay, man will be evidence against himself,
15. Even though he were to make excuses.
16. Move not thy tongue concerning the (Qur'an), to make haste therewith.
17. It is for Us to collect it and to promulgate it:
18. But when We have promulgated it, follow thou its recital:
19. Nay more, it is for Us to explain it:
20. Nay, (ye men!) but ye love the fleeting life,
21. And leave alone the Hereafter.
22. Some faces, that Day, will beam (in brightness and beauty) -
23. Looking towards their Lord;
24. And some faces, that Day, will be sad and dismal,
25. In the thought that some backbreaking calamity was about to be inflicted on them;
26. Yea, when (the soul) reaches to the collarbone (in its exit),
27. And there will be a cry, "Who is a magician (to restore him)?"
28. And he will conclude that it was (the Time) of Parting;
29. And one leg will be joined with another:
30. The Day the Drive will be (all) to thy Lord!
31. So he gave nothing in charity, nor did he pray! -
32. But on the contrary, he rejected Truth and turned away!
33. Then did he stalk to his family in full conceit!
34. Woe to thee, (O man!), yea, woe!
35. Again, woe to thee, (O man!), yea, woe!
36. Does Man think that he will be left uncontrolled, (without purpose)?
37. Was he not a drop of sperm emitted (in lowly form)?
38. Then did he become a clinging clot; then did (Allah) make and fashion (him) in due proportion.
39. And of him He made two sexes, male and female.
40. Has not he, (the same), the power to give life to the dead?
surah 75:1-40 Al Qiyamah (The Resurrection)
(Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'an, 1989.)
Those Who Reject The Good News
Yea, when (the soul) reaches to the collarbone (in its exit),
And there will be a cry,
"Who is a magician (to restore him)?"
And he will conclude that it was (the Time) of Parting;
And one leg will be joined with another:
The Day the Drive will be (all) to thy Lord!
surah 75:26-30 Al Qiyamah (The Resurrection)
(Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'an, Amana Corporation, 1989.)
The "thought that some backbreaking calamity was about to be inflicted on them" will haunt those who reject His Call to witness the Day of Resurrection and the self-reproaching Spirit. Their conscience will begin to prick that throughout their lives they rejected the messengers of the Resurrection.
These verses above notify of the time of approaching death when the moment of truth and fear will dawn as the soul is about to depart back to Allah. This surah mocks those transgressors who disbelieved the Announcement (An-Naba) of Qiyamah and now, at the point of imminent death, begin to finally fear the coming judgment.
There will now dread the impeding death and damnation into the Pit of Fire for they had rejected Allah's Message of Mercy, despite all His irrefutable proof, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, and revelations. All their prayers and fasting will come to nil for they did not believe the Great Event of Al-Qiyamah, the Night of Power and Fate - "The night of perfect measure is better than a thousand months. The Angels and the Holy Spirit descend in that night with the permission of their Lord on every errand: with peace until the rise of dawn.” (The Holy Qur'an 97:3-5)" - upheld to be better than a Thousand Months of Ramadan. Be forewarned, Deniers of the Resurrection, be forewarned!
These condemned victims are the conditioned, brainwashed, falsehood-fed religious prisoners. They will be unable to bear the thought that their religious institutions have been rendered absolutely powerless during Al-Qiyamah to salvage even a single soul - "Where is the refuge? By no means! No place of safety!" They will be poisoned by their own jealousies and pride, their hearts heavy with the anguish that none of their religious elite were given such priceless Grace. But the Almighty Creator's Grace is for those who accept His Divine Unity, His Oneness, His Harmony - not for followers of religious regimes battling each other for supremacy.
Millions of fools and fundamentalists will have their hearts filled with rejection. The conscience of their inability to accept the Good News of Qiyamah will remain with them forever. It was Allah's Reprieve and yet they did not accept His Offer. It was Khudda's Mercy and yet they did not welcome His Compassion. Till their dying day they will have to live with their rebuff of Revealed Truth. Only when they are on their deathbed, all weak and feeble, will their rejection of Qiyamah finally haunt them. Only then will they fear that they deliberately defied His Grace and realize it's too late to repent. They will know that the Hour of Judgment is approaching, and that the Eternal Fire is the assured punishment of this wretched, wasted life. Only the proximity of death will bring this surety of impeding doom and backbreaking calamity. Take heed, Deniers of the Resurrection, take heed!
Note: The Age of Qiyamah begins the Drive back to the Lord. and grants the means to achieve the final evolution by first undertaking a spiritual cleansing on Earth with the help of the Kundalini, a built-in Divine power which the Qur'an calls as the Baptism of Allah;
The Baptism of Allah; and who can baptise better than Allah? And it is He whom we worship.
surah 2:138 Al Baqarah (The Heifer)
This self-triggered evolution, which Lord Jesus refers as being born of the Spirit, is an absolute absolution for humans to enter His Kingdom. The Baptism of Allah for Muslims is the same 'second birth' for Christians; the same 'dwija or twice born' for Hindus; the same 'opening of the Dsam Duar' for Sikhs; the same Self-Realization, Satori, gnosticism, and fana of advanced spiritual seekers. They seemingly different paths are all one and the same, with no difference whatsoever as far as the pursuit of the Spirit is concerned. It is just that the human race has been divided and fragmented by the religious regimes, too brainwashed and conditioned to confirm the same Truth in other Holy Books.
Muslims have been falsely misled to believe that Ramadan is better than a thousand months since the Qur'an was revealed during that period (even though it took another 23 years to be completed).
Ramadan is a holy month of good deeds performed on it, fasting on it, and standing in prayer. So how can it be better than a thousand months of whatever the ulema have falsely conjured?
Or is the participation in Al-Qiyamah during Al-Qadr, the Night of Power and Fate, better than a thousand months of Ramadan? Isn't Al-Qadr, the Night of Power and Fate, better than a thousand years of Islam?
Maybe those dealing in fraud and innovation should listen to Abdullah Yusuf Ali:
"Satan out of arrogance had said, when he asked for respite from the Most High: "I will bring (Adam's) descendants under my sway, all but a few.”
"The worst and most hardened sinner is the man to whom Allah's Signs are actually brought home and who yet prefers Evil and turns away from the Light of Allah. The Signs may be in the words and guidance of a great Teacher or in some sorrow or warning, but from which he deliberately refuses to profit. The penalty - the Nemesis - must necessary come eventually.”
Be forewarned of your impending penalty, rejecters of Allah's Signs, be forewarned of your impending penalty in the Eternal Fire for deliberately refusing to profit from God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful, Most Beneficent!
"Truth is one; sages call it by various names," the Rig Veda, one of Vedanta's most ancient texts, declared thousands of years ago. We are all seeking the truth, Vedanta asserts, and that truth comes in numerous names and forms. . . .
If all religions are true, then what is all the fighting about?
Politics, mostly, and the distortions that cultures and limited human minds superimpose upon spiritual reality. What is generally considered "religion" is a mixture of essentials and nonessentials...
The carnage inflicted upon the world in the name of religion has precious little to do with genuine religion. People fight over doctrine and dogma: we don't see people being murdered over attaining divine union! A "religious war" is really large-scale egotism gone berserk. As Swami Prabhavananda, the founder of the Vedanta Society of Southern California, would smilingly say, "If you put Jesus, Buddha, and Muhammad in the same room together, they will embrace each other. If you put their followers together, they may kill each other!"
Truth is one, but it comes filtered through the limited human mind. That mind lives in a particular culture, has its own experience of the world and lives at a particular point in history. The infinite Reality is thus processed through the limitations of space, time, causation, and is further processed through the confines of human understanding and language. Manifestations of truth - scriptures, sages, and prophets - will necessarily vary from age to age and from culture to culture. Light, when put through a prism, appears in various colors when observed from different angles. But the light always remains the same pure light. The same is true with spiritual truth...
Every Religion Has a Gift
Every religion has a specific gift to offer humankind; every religion brings with it a unique viewpoint which enriches the world. Christianity stresses love and sacrifice; Judaism, the value of spiritual wisdom and tradition. Islam emphasizes universal brotherhood and equality while Buddhism advocates compassion and mindfulness. The Native American tradition teaches reverence for the earth and the natural world surrounding us. Vedanta or the Hindu tradition stresses the oneness of existence and the need for direct mystical experience.
The world's spiritual traditions are like different pieces in a giant jigsaw puzzle: each piece is different and each piece is essential to complete the whole picture. Each piece is to be honored and respected while holding firm to our own particular piece of the puzzle. We can deepen our own spirituality and learn about our own tradition by studying other faiths. Just as importantly, by studying our own tradition well, we are better able to appreciate the truth in other traditions...
Different Paths to the Same Goal
Vedanta says that all religions contain within themselves the same essential truths, although the packaging is different. And that is good. Every human being on the planet is unique. Not one of us really practices the same religion. Every person's mind is different and every person needs his or her own unique path to reach the top of the mountain. Some paths are narrow, some are broad. Some are winding and difficult and some are safe and dull. Eventually we'll all get to the top of the mountain; we don't have to worry about our neighbors getting lost along the way. they'll do just fine. We all need different approaches to fit our different natures.
Despite external variations in the world religions, the internals are more alike than not. Every religion teaches similar moral and ethical virtues; all religions teach the importance of spiritual striving and the necessity of honoring our fellow human beings as part of that striving.
"As different streams having their sources in different places all mingle their water in the sea," says an ancient Sanskrit prayer, "so, O Lord, the different paths which people take through different tendencies, various though they appear, crooked or straight, all lead to Thee.”
