QAYAMAT KA AZAB
Judgement day. The day of judgement.
Quran-o-Hadeeth ki rooshnee mein
In Sahih al-Bukhari, there is a hadith which states that a Bedouin asked the Prophet about the Hour. He said, "It will surely come to pass. What have you prepared for it?" The man said, "O Messenger of Allah, I have not prepared much in the way of prayer and good works, but I love Allah and His Messenger." The Prophet said, "You will be with those you love." The Muslims had never rejoiced as much they did when they heard this hadith.
Some ahadith report that the Prophet was asked about the Hour. He looked towards a young boy and said, "If he lives, he will not grow very old before he sees your Last Hour coming to you." By this he meant their death and entering the Hereafter, because everyone who dies enters the Hereafter; some people say that when a person has died, his Judgement has begun. This hadith with this meaning is 'correct' (sahih). Some heretics comment on this hadith and give it an incorrect meaning. The exact timing of the Great Hour (as-sa'at al-'uzma) is something which Allah alone knows and which He has not revealed to anyone, as is clear from the hadith in which the Prophet said: "There are five things which nobody knows except Allah;"
