39-The Witnesses In The Final Judgement
39 _ THE WITNESSES IN THE FINAL JUDGEMENT
WE BELIEVE that in the final judgement, besides God who is controlling all the judgements, there are other witnesses too; such as the hands and feet; the
skin and even the ground upon which we live. All of these will testify as to what we have done before!
"That Day, We should set a seal on their mouths, (SHUT THEM UP) and their hands will speak to Us, and their feet shall bear witness to all that they did."
THE HOLY QUR?N _ S36: 65
"When they reach it, their ears and their skins will testify to their misdeeds! `why did you speak against us?'they will say to their skins? And their skins will reply:_ "ALLAH, who gives speech to all, has made us to speak."
THE HOLY QUR?N _ S41: 20
"When the Earth is shaken to her utmost convulsion, and man asks:_ `What may this mean?' On that DAY will she declare her reports, because your LORD have inspired her to do so."
THE HOLY QUR?N _ S99: 4_5
40 ? THE PASSAGE_WAY, (BRIDGE) AND THE SCALE TO WEIGH DEEDS
WE BELIEVE that in the Doomsday, the PASSAGEWAY (SER?T) and the scale for weighing our deeds do exist. By the PASSAGE_WAY, a bridge is meant, which is laid over the Hell, and every one must pass over that bridge to reach PARADISE! Yes! The bridge or passage way that may lead to Paradise, hangs over the FIRE.
"There is not one of you who shall not pass through the confines of the Hell! Such is the absolute decree of your LORD. We will deliver those who fear Us, but the wrongdoers shall be left to endure its torments on their knees."
THE HOLY QUR?N _ S19: 71_72
Passing through that hard passage-way, depends on what MAN had done before. We read a famous tradition thus:_ "Some people will pass the bridge as quick as a lightning! Some pass it over as, fast as a speedy horse, others like the pedestrains. A group will go on, leaning on their hands and feet, and some are
hanged by their hands, trying to pass over the blaze of Hell. So the Hell catches some and leaves some to go to the gardens of BLISS; As for the SCALE, it is a means by which the human deeds are measured and weighed so as to specify their values.
"We shall set up the scales of justice on the day of judgement, and not a soul will be dealt with unjustly in the least. And if there be the weight of a mustard seed, We will bring it to account; and enough are We as the accountant."
THE HOLY QUR?N _ S21: 47
"Then he whose scales (OF GOOD DEEDS) are heavy, shall dwell in BLISS, but he whose balances (OF GOOD DEEDS) are light, the ABYSS shall be his home."
THE HOLY QUR?N _ S101: 6_9
WE BELIEVE that salvation in the next life, depends only on one's deeds and acts and not on his fancies and thoughts. There; No one can be redeemed unless by piety and good deeds, and the Grace of God.
"Every soul will be held in pledge for its deeds."
THE HOLY QUR?N _ S74: 38
This is a brief description about the scale, the detail of which we know not, because the world to come is far above the lower world within which we are imprisoned.
