The topic of this book is one of the central tenets of Islamic faith. It is a belief that was preached by all Prophets, and it is a belief that makes sense of a sometimes incomprehensible world. Belief in the day of resurrection and the final judgment brings benefits in this world, on the individual and social levels. It makes the individual focus on what is in his ultimate best interest, guiding his actions in ways that will benefit him and bring him happiness in this world and the next. Dr. Umar S. al-Ashqar takes us through the events of the Day, from the first Trumpet-blast and the end of life in the heaven and on earth, through the terrors of the Resurrection and the ordeals of the Judgment, to the final entry to the place of eternal abode, in Paradise or Hell.
