The Day of Judgment in Islam: Insights from the Quran

The Day of Judgment, or “Yawm al-Qiyamah” in Arabic, holds profound significance in Islamic theology. It is a day when every individual will be held accountable for their deeds in the earthly life. The concept of the Day of Judgment is deeply rooted in the Quran, Islam’s primary religious text. This article aims to explore what the Quran says about this pivotal event, its nature, occurrences, and the actions that will take place on that momentous day.


Understanding the Day of Judgment in Islam

The Day of Judgment signifies the end of the temporal world and the beginning of the eternal afterlife. It is the day when Allah, the Almighty, will resurrect all human beings, gather them before Him, and judge them based on their beliefs and deeds. The Quran frequently mentions the inevitability of this day, emphasizing its significance as a core tenet of Islamic faith.

Quranic References:

  1. The inevitability of the Day of Judgment:
    • “And the Trumpet will be blown, and all who are in the heavens and all who are on the earth will swoon away, except him whom Allah wills. Then it will be blown a second time, and behold they will be standing, looking on.” (Quran 39:68)
    • “The Day when there will not benefit [anyone] wealth or children. But only one who comes to Allah with a sound heart.” (Quran 26:88-89)
  2. The resurrection of the dead:
    • “Does man think that We will not assemble his bones? Yes. [We are] Able [even] to proportion his fingertips.” (Quran 75:3-4)
    • “And the earth will shine with the light of its Lord, and the record [of deeds] will be placed, and the prophets and the witnesses will be brought, and it will be judged between them in truth, and they will not be wronged.” (Quran 39:69)
  3. Accountability for deeds:
    • “So whoever does an atom’s weight of good will see it, And whoever does an atom’s weight of evil will see it.” (Quran 99:7-8)
    • “And We place the scales of justice for the Day of Resurrection, so no soul will be treated unjustly at all. And if there is [even] the weight of a mustard seed, We will bring it forth. And sufficient are We as accountant.” (Quran 21:47)


Actions on the Day of Judgment:

1. Presentation of deeds: On the Day of Judgment, every individual will be presented with a comprehensive record of their deeds, both good and bad. This record will be a meticulous account of every action, thought, and intention throughout one’s life.

2. Reckoning and judgment: Allah, the Just, will judge each person fairly and impartially based on their deeds and intentions. No one will be wronged or treated unjustly, as Allah’s judgment will be based on perfect knowledge and wisdom.

3. Reward and punishment: Those who led righteous lives and adhered to Allah’s commandments will be rewarded with eternal bliss in Paradise, while those who deviated from the path of righteousness will face punishment in Hellfire.
