Belief in the last day

5.  Absolute and total belief and acceptance in the concept of the Hereafter, Paradise and Hell-Fire

يَوْمَ نَطْوِي السَّمَاۗءَ كَـطَيِّ السِّجِلِّ لِلْكُتُبِ  ۭ كَمَا بَدَاْنَآ اَوَّلَ خَلْقٍ نُّعِيْدُهٗ  ۭ وَعْدًا عَلَيْنَا  ۭ اِنَّا كُنَّا فٰعِلِيْنَ

Al-Quran: And (remember) the Day when We shall roll up the heavens like a scroll rolled up for books, as We began the first creation, We shall repeat it, (it is) a promise binding upon Us. Truly, We shall do it.[1]

It is the fifth article of faith and it means to recognize that there will be no day after this day and that people will reside forever in either Paradise or Hell.  The belief in this Day implies belief in everything mentioned about it in the Qur’an or authentic hadith—which are numerous and difficult to summarize here.  It is highly recommended for Muslims to learn as much about this day as possible so that one may prepare well for its eventuality.  One of the most important beliefs about this Day is that all of the humanity will be resurrected as they once were—with the same body.  Also, to believe in all that which will happen after death and about which Allah and his Messenger! informed us. This includes the trial in the grave, the torment or the bliss therein. This includes the trial in the grave, the torment or the bliss therein and the belief in all that will be witnessed on the Day of Judgment, such as the Bridge set over the Hell-fire, The Balance, Reckoning, Reward and Punishment, the giving of the records… This also includes the belief in the River that will be given to Prophet Muhammadﷺ , belief in Paradise and Hell-fire, belief in the believers’ looking at their Lord and His talking to them.
