Fruits for the Week

Header Last edition English


A Muslim views sleep as a great bless that Allah the Almighty has bestowed on His servants. Allah (swt) said:” It is out of His mercy that He has made for you night and day that you might rest therein (during the night) and that you may seek of His bounty (during the day), and in order that you may be grateful.” (Al-Qasas: 73). He further said in the Qur’an:” And We have made your sleep as a thing for rest.” (An-Naba’: 9).

This sun which we see shining everyday, that fills our world with light and gives us light and energy which we can not do without in order to see and move, and which is needed by every living creature and every plant that grows, will be collected and rolled up, and its light will vanish. Allah (swt) said:“When the sun kuwwirat (wound round and lost its light and is overthrown).” (At-Takwir: 1)

Allah tells us that on the Day of Judgement, when the Trumpet is blown, this stable earth of ours, with its strong and heavy mountains, will be crushed with a single crushing. Allah said: “Then when the Trumpet will be blown with one blowing (the first one). And the earth and the mountains shall be removed from their places, and crushed with a single crushing. Then on that Day shall the great Event befall.” (Al-Haqqah: 13-15). Allah further said: “Nay! When the earth is ground to powder.” (Al-Fajr: 21).
