There will be no end to the life of the Hereafter

7 – It was narrated that Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (may Allaah be pleased with him) said that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“Death will be brought forth in the form of a black and white speckled ram, and a caller will cry out, ‘O people of Paradise!’ They will crane their necks and look, and he will say, ‘Do you recognize this?’ They will say, ‘Yes, it is death,’ and all of them will have seen it. Then he will cry out, ‘O people of Hell!’ They will crane their necks and look, and he will say, ‘Do you recognize this?’ They will say, ‘Yes, it is death,’ and all of them will have seen it. Then the ram will be slaughtered, and he (the caller) will say, ‘O people of Paradise, it is eternal and there will be no death; O people of Hell, it is eternal and there will be no death.’”

Then he recited (interpretation of the meaning):
"And warn them (O Muhammad) of the Day of grief and regrets, when the case has been decided, while (now) they are in a state of carelessness, and they believe not” [Maryam 19:39]
Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 4453; Muslim, 2849

According to the version narrated from Ibn ‘Umar in Muslim (2850): “And the joy of the people of Paradise will be increased, and the grief of the people of Hell will be increased.”

Ibn al-Qayyim said:

This ram and the action of laying it down and slaughtering it whilst the two groups are looking on is something real; it is not something illusionary or symbolic, as some people made the serious mistake of suggesting. They said that it is a description, but a description cannot take a physical shape, let alone be slaughtered.

That view is not correct, for Allaah will cause death to appear in the form of a ram which will be slaughtered, just as He will cause deeds to appear in visible forms by which people will be rewarded or punished. Allaah can cause descriptions to appear in physical forms the substance of which is the description, and He can create characteristics from physical beings, and He can create descriptions from descriptions and physical beings from physical beings. All four categories are possible for Allaah, and there is no contradiction in any of that. It is not something impossible, and there is no need for far-fetched interpretations such as saying that it refers to the slaughter of the Angel of Death. All of that is a misinterpretation of the words of Allaah and His Messenger and a false understanding that is not dictated by reason or the reports, which is caused by lack of understanding of what the Messenger said.

Haadi al-Arwaah, p. 283, 284

If Allah lets me into Jannah, seeing the death killed will be an awesome sight, truely Allah knows best and the death of death is something for the believer to anticipate.

Assalamu-alaikum,

MashaAllah for this beautiful reminder.


Just wanted to add a few ayats (in translation) with relation to this topic:


"And those who are blessed, they will be in Paradise, abiding therein for all the time that the heavens and earth endure, except as your Lord will, a gift without an end." (11:108)


***********************************


"(It will be said to them)! Verily, this is Our Provision that will never finish" (38:54)


***********************************


"The description of the Paradise that the Muttaqoon have been promised! - Underneath it rivers flow, its provision is eternal and so is its shade, this is the end (final destination) of the Muttaqoon, and the end (final destination) of the disbelievers is Fire." (13:35)


***********************************

"No sense of fatigue shall touch them, nor shall they (ever) be asked to leave it." (15:48)




May we all strive in ernest towards our final abode.

What is a meagre few decades in this dunya.......when compared to ETERNITY!

Are we of the insane.....or foolish.....not to be able to realise this? imsad


Salaam
