Last Day

July 13, 2012

Last day of U.F.A, spoken of the Last Day.

~ truly beneficial.

By. R.P.

We must believe in three things: Divinity, Prophets, and the Unseen. Beliefs in the unseen are primordial (fundamental) beliefs. In our [Islamic] belief, we must believe in everything that our Prophet (peace be upon him) taught us.
We must be very careful to ensure what the Prophet has taught us because disbelief in what he says is not knowing God. Those who disbelief are those who do not know their God.
-Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah
Rihla 2012

The human soul, once created, will never cease to exist. After this world, the soul will live permanently in the next world. The human soul is indestructible and is one of the greatest things God created. That’s why what you do with your time on earth is so important.
-Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah
Rihla 2012

_________________________________

We believe also that our provision is allotted to us as well, and we have to make sure we seek to get it in a halal way. If you are a wealthy human being, you would have been wealthy anyway, so be sure to get that wealth in a halal way.
-Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah
Rihla 2012

Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah on forms of people during resurrection:

We believe the human body is created from the coccyx (the lower part of the spinal column). When the human body is resurrected they are recreated according to their moral and inner qualities—may we be beautifully created, amen.

Believers are created as per “Adamic” (like Prophet Adam, peace be upon him) qualities— very physically tall and large and beautiful. Their forms are very beautiful no matter what they looked like in this world.

Tyrants will be resurrected blind. Those who are conceited will be resurrected dead and dumb. The hypocrites will be resurrected with long tongues (and other features). All of people’s physical states will reflect their inner states in the world.
Rihla 2012

Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah on forms of the earth during resurrection:

On the day of resurrection, the earth will be one huge plain- no mountains or hills, and all continents will be brought together. The angels will guide the believers and the angels drive the disbelievers and drive them (like herd them) to where they will be judged. All seas joins and become one body of water.

The Garden, which exists now but is not accessible, will be brought near and made accessible. The Fire will also be brought near.

The station where we will be judged will also be brought near. The greatest difficulty that any human being will have will be on this day.

Rihla 2012

_________________________________

For the Balance (scale) we will weigh our deeds individually and weigh our deeds as a community. All of the ummah of Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him) will be weighed just like the communities as other prophets will be weighed.
-Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah
Rihla 2012

_________________________________

After the Balance are the quenching pools. The believers who truly believed and did good deeds, who were not oppressors and tyrants, will meet the Prophet (peace be upon him) at the quenching pool. The Prophet will give you your own cup to drink from the pool. The water of the quenching pool comes from the garden.

The men and women of the Garden eat and drink but they don’t eat or drink out of need. They drink and eat for pleasure.

It’s also said that every prophet has a quenching pool and each prophet hopes their community will be larger than that of the other prophets.
-Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah on day of Resurrection
Rihla 2012

_________________________________

Then after the Balance we believe in the Traverse- the Sirat- the great bridge that goes over the upper stratum (the surface) of the Fire (jahannam). The distance of the Sirat is very very long. The Traverse must be crossed and is the only way to go to the Garden.

The prophets will lead their communities over the Traverse. Those who were upright and believed, they will cross this bridge at the speed of lightening. Others will cross as a bird, or a strong horse, or a man running, or a man walking, or a man crawling.

It is wide for those who are good, and narrow for those who were bad.
For a disbeliever, it will be as thin as hair and sharp as sword.
-Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah on day of Judgment
Rihla 2012

_________________________________

Those who fall into the Fire will fall a distance of 70 years.
-Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah on day of Judgment
Rihla 2012

_________________________________

The last part of the Traverse is the most difficult part. The last part is the Tie of the Kinship, where our relationships with our families are assessed. [Make sure you take care of your relationships.]
-Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah on day of Judgment
Rihla 2012

_________________________________

The Fire is all extremes- extreme heat, extreme cold, and the most painful of all types of punishment.
-Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah on day of Judgment
Rihla 2012

_________________________________

The people of the Fire are black like coal. In this dunya our skin colors mean nothing, as Black people in this world are beautiful. But in the Fire, the color black like coal is reserved for people of the Fire.
-Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah on day of Judgment
Rihla 2012

_________________________________

There is no disbelief in the next world. So you can ask whomever is there- Nimrod, or Satan- why they tortured people and they will answer truthfully. One of the most imp things about the resurrection and day of judgment is that the whole story will be revealed.
-Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah on day of Judgment
Rihla 2012

_________________________________

The highest spiritual progression is to worship for Allah, not for the sake of being in the Garden.
-Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah
Rihla 2012

_________________________________

The Garden is the most beautiful thing in creation. But the greatest thing in the Garden is that God will love you. Every inhabitant of the Garden will have a family, even if you were alone in the dunya. You’re never alone in the Garden. It is the greatest victory; it is the greatest success.
-Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah
Rihla 2012

_________________________________

Everyone in the Garden will be beautiful. All will be same age (in late 30s), and none of the men will have beards (or hair on their faces).
-Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah
Rihla 2012

_________________________________

The Prophets and some believers will be in the highest level of the Garden (Firdous). But people in the lowest level of the Garden will be able to visit people and prophets in the highest level too.
-Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah
Rihla 2012

_________________________________

The greatest thing of the Garden will be the witnessing of God; the communion with God.
-Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah
Rihla 2012

_________________________________

One of the other greatest things in the Garden will be speech because it will be all perfect, unflawed, truthful speech.
-Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah
Rihla 2012

_________________________________

The Prophets’ deeds will not be weighed simply because their good deeds are too much. They will go straight to the Garden.
-Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah
Rihla 2012

_________________________________

Munkir and Nakir are the angels who question you in the grave. And what do they ask about? AQEEDAH (Islamic theology)! That’s why it’s so important to know your aqeedah.
-Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah
Rihla 2012

_________________________________

We also believe in jinn, who have intellect and power of language, and are mukallaf (the accountable). Jinns are made of fire while human beings are made from clay.
-Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah
Rihla 2012

_________________________________

Dhikr (remembrance of God) must be connected to fikr (reflection). Don’t just say the words [of remembrance], think about the words.
-Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah
Rihla 2012

_________________________________

You die the way you live, so live a good life.
Die with the single phrase, “lā ʾilāha ʾillà l-Lāh, Muḥammadun rasūlu l-Lāh”.
-Dr. Umar F. Abd-Allah
Rihla 2012
