  2. 1 Belief in the Last Day1.1 Part of Eeman • No one is a believer without belief in this pillar. o Sahih International: And who believe in what has been revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you, and of the Hereafter they are certain [in faith]. [ Surah Baqarah, 2 : Ayat 4 ] o Sahih International: Who establish prayer and give zakah, and of the Hereafter they are certain [in faith]. [ Surah An-Nami, 27 : Ayat 3 ] • Allah enjoins belief in Him with the belief in the Last Day o Sahih International: Righteousness is not that you turn your faces toward the east or the west, but [true] righteousness is [in] one who believes in Allah, the Last Day, the angels, the Book, and the prophets and gives wealth, in spite of love for it, to relatives, orphans, the needy, the traveler, those who ask [for help], and for freeing slaves; [and who] establishes prayer and gives zakah; [those who] fulfill their promise when they promise; and [those who] are patient in poverty and hardship and during battle. Those are the ones who have been true, and it is those who are the righteous. [ Surah Al-Baqarah, 2 : Ayat 177 ]1.2 Scope of this Belief 1. Belief that there will be another life after this one 2. This life is not the end, but there will be a Judgement Day, with recompense in al-Jannah (Paradise) or an-Nar (Hellfire or the Fire) 3.

Paradise & Hellfire 4. The term Hour (as-Sa’ah) is used in two ways; a. It is used to refer to death, as death is the end of this life for each individual b. It is also used to refer to end of time for all :: The Apocalypse 5. An individual’s judgement begins upon his death, whereas the judgement of all creation will occur on “The Judgement Day”3|Page

Say, "Its knowledge is only with my Lord. None will reveal its time except Him. It lays heavily upon the heavens and the earth. It will not come upon you except unexpectedly." They ask you as if you are familiar with it. Say, "Its knowledge is only with Allah, but most of the people do not know." [ Surah al-Araf, 7 : Ayat 187 ] The Hour is near o Sahih International: The Hour has come near, and the moon has split [in two]. [ Surah Al-Qamar, 54, Ayat 1 ] The Hour will fall on a Friday o Abu Hurairah (Ra) reports that Prophet Mohammad (P.B.U.H.) had said, "The best day during which the sun have risen is Friday. It is the Day Adam was created. It is the day when Adam entered paradise and also when he was taken out from it. It is also the day on which the day of judgment takes place."
