The earth continued to cast out the dead to its surface
until there was no one remaining inside it. The resurrection of mankind, the
Jinn, the devils, the wild beasts, the cattle, and birds was complete. They
were all gathered in the same place and at that moment, the whole universe
started to enter its final stage of destruction.
The earth was grounded to dust. The stars were scattered
and the sun was extinguished then it started to cool down. The color of the sun
turned from its glowing yellow color to red then finally it turned to black.
The explosion of the sun produced a lot of crackling in the sky. The sight was
dazing and complete darkness prevailed over the whole universe. The stars were extinguished
and the moon eclipsed and thus darkness prevailed. The whole of creation stood

Masrur was now shivering from cold after he had been dripping
with sweat. It had snowed heavily and a thin white layer covered the whole
ground. It was a horrific scene and Masrur suddenly went snow blind and so was
unable to see Maqrur or to distinguish things.
The sky fell down to the earth and it was broken asunder. The
divine ordinance decreed that all the ruling laws of the universal should be

Finally, it turned into red.
After the heavens were cleft asunder and its gates were opened
the angels started to appear. They were celebrating Allah's praise and
extolling His Holiness despite being overwhelmed with fear and terror.
Masrur's heart was beating severely like drums that beat in
the still night bearing ominous tidings of severe chastisement. Masrur was
unaware of how much time had passed in such terror. He was also unaware of how
long it had taken since he had been raised to life till the sky was cleft asunder.
What had surprised him most was still being alive in spite
of all that he had witnessed. He was terrified to think that he would never die
again. This idea filled him with horror and panic even
More than he was affected by the horrors of that momentous day. Maqrur
was trembling with fear and celebrating the praises of his Lord, the Most Kind
