What happens after
death? When will the end of the world be? Are we really living in the “last
days” ? These are questions which concern everyone, no matter what his or her
background. Many have tried to answer these questions, producing theories that
range from the fanciful to the nihilistic. But man-made notions cannot answer
questions about matters which man has no way of finding out by himself.
In these as in so many other issues, Islam brings us answers. Surely the One Who
gives life and takes it away, is the One Who is the best to inform us of what
happens after death. The One Who has created this universe and mankind is the
best to tell us about when this world will come to an end and mankind will be
called for judgment. He has informed us about these matters, in His book and
through His Prophet (pbuh).
In this book, Dr. Umar S. al-Ashqar examines all these issues from the point of
view of the Qur’an and Sunnah. He looks at issues of death and what happens to a
person’s soul after death, including the questioning of the angels and the
torment of the grave. He also examines the signs of the Hour, which indicate
that the Day of Judgment is approaching – many of which are already happening.
As always he quotes extensively from the texts, placing these issues squarely
within the Islamic framework and dispelling the myth and misunderstandings that
have arisen and become prevalent.
