What massive stones; what magnificent buildings!


Mohammad  Asif  Reyaz
It was September 2- 2012, after offering my morning prayer, I was gazing at the vast open sky. While gazing at the sky a strange thought cross my mind that in spite of being so great and vast it is not falling on anybody’s head. And if it somehow happens to fall the whole humanity will be wipe out.

Now I started thinking that a day is to come when everything on this earth will be destroyed. Even this strong and massive sky will be torn apart. As described in Quran:

“When the sky breaks apart .And when the stars fall scattering and when the seas are erupted. And when the graves are scattered and soul will then know what it has kept forth and kept back”.
 (82-1-3)

The day is to come when God will bring this existing world to an end and will take His creature to another world that is Akhrah. Here the mankind will either live in absolute ecstasy or in abject agony and pain. As described in Bible:

"Then the king told the attendants, 'Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth”.
Matthew 22-13

Imagine a desert where you are all alone and there is nothing but sand and only sand all around you, how will you react? Certainly you will come across such an agony and pain that you will prefer death over life.
One day God will destroy the sky. He will remove the mountain on the earth. He will destroy everything, the earth, the sea, the Sun, the stars the Moon everything around you and me. On that day the earth will be made as plain as deserts. That day man will see the death in his eyes. On that day according to Quran some people will say I wish that I were dust.
 (78- 40)

In Quran it has been described;
“And they ask you about the mountains so say; my lord will blow them away with blast. And He will leave the earth a level plain. You will not see therein a depression or an elevation. That day everyone will follow the call of the caller with no deviation there from and all voices will be stilled before the most Merciful. So, you will not hear except whisperer of footsteps”. (20-105-8) 

 God created the sky and if He would not have created it, no body was there to bring it to its existence.  And again it is He who will destroy it. Nobody is there so power full to destroy the same.
Man is so deeply engrossed in this earthly world that he has forgotten his creator. Although this world is no longer to stay here. It is destined to come to an end. It is stated in Bible;

“As he was (Jesus) leaving the temple, one of his disciples said to him, "Look, Teacher! What massive stones! What magnificent buildings!"
And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? Verily I say unto you, there shall not be left here one stone upon another that shall not be thrown down.
