The Quake Of Reckoning A Tafsīr Of Sūrat Ul Zilzāl – Delivered by Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq on 27th September 2013 at Al Kawthar Academy (Leicester)
The commentary of this sūrah draws a vivid picture of the scenes of the Day of Judgement upon the quake of reckoning. The day on which all secrets will be disclosed and the earth will cast forth its burdens. Every soul will be resurrected and held accountable for every deed committed.
We learn the many forms of charity in Islām and we are reminded never to consider any good deed trivial or any sin minor. One should never hold back in doing good, regardless of its supposed trivial nature. Any good, even if it is equivalent to the weight of an atom, can become a means of salvation. On the other hand one should refrain from all forms of sin for every sin is major when one realises whom it is committed against.
Learn more about the quake of reckoning and the horrifying events that will surround it. Learn about the effects and damages of committing sin. Furthermore, learn about the important lessons of this sūrah regarding fear and accountability.
