New Video - The Difference of The Day of Judgement in Islam and in Other Religions

"You can see really, there was so much confusion in this world with regards to the Day of Judgement. That is why there was a need for a Messenger to come and to make the Day of Judgement very clear. If you look in the Qur'an and in the history of prophets and messengers you will see that the basic task of every messenger is to mention the Day of Judgement. People can see and experience this world anyway but what people cannot really see is the Day of Judgement - they cannot look into that future. That is why there was a need for messengers to come and tell people about it. That is why one of the names of the Prophet (SAW) is Nadheer. Nadheer means the Warner." - Shaykh Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi, Surah Al-Haqqah Seminar

The following video is part of the day-long seminar on Surah Al-Haqqah by Shaykh Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi. This was an amazing seminar which covered topics related to the Day of Judgement which are rarely discussed but are highly relevant for us living in this day and age. These included:
  • The difference of Day of Judgement in Islam and other religions
  • Messengers as warners of the Day of Judgement
  • The proofs and evidences for the Day of Judgement that anyone can comprehend
  • The difference between animals and the humans - Dunya Vs Aakhira
  • The concept of past, present and future
  • The different types of futures - future of this world and future of the next world
  • Meaning of Dunya and meaning of Aakhira
  • How is Allah (SWT) attribute of Mercy related to the Day of Judgement
  • This world and the Hereafter as pairs
  • And many more which are all included in the video.

Do not miss this Saturday's event on Surah Al-Ma'arij which gives yet another perspective on the Day of Judgement.

"...The disbelievers think it is distant, but We know it to be close. On a Day when the heavens will be like molten brass and the mountains like tufts of wool, when no friend will ask about his friend, even when they are within sight of one another. The guilty person will wish he could save himself from the suffering of that Day by sacrificing his sons, his spouse, his brother, the kinsfolk who gave him shelter, and everyone on earth, if it could save him..." [Surah Al-Ma'arij 70:6-14]

"Jazakumullah khair for the efforts of the MEOC for arranging these blessed gatherings of knowledge. The seminars I've attended so far have several elements that make them very special, starting from the choice of topics themselves which cater to the more profound needs of the people rather than addressing some superficial issues that seem to be more fashionable today. Even the content of the seminars and the manner of teaching by Shaikh Akram Nadwi are directly focussed towards developing a deeper understanding of these issues. In these seminars, one gets a glimpse of the years of learning that have gone into the brilliant scholarship of Shaikh Nadwi. Furthermore his knowledge seems to be blessed by an acute understanding of the needs of the Ummah. The seminar on the 'Legacy of Ibrahim (a.s.)' was exceptionally beautiful, wherein, the Shaikh in his own words confessed that he was attempting to transmit, not knowledge, but the state of his heart, to the others present. While the knowledge and the insight that one gains into the Qur'an, the Sunnah and the history of Muslims through these seminars is invaluable, I personally feel that these sessions are more than just one-day courses. I am inclined to call them gatherings of Remembrance of Allah, and we all know the blessings of such gatherings!" - Mohini Verma, PhD Student, Cambridge University
