THE REALITY OF QIYAMAH – The day our body will testify against us

The day our body will testify against us
Allah ﷻ says in Surah An-Naba

يَوْمَ يَقُومُ الرُّوحُ وَالْمَلَـئِكَةُ صَفّاً لاَّ يَتَكَلَّمُونَ

The Day that Ar-Ruh and the angels will stand forth in rows, they will not speak

The word Ruh here is referring to the angel Jibril.

إِلاَّ مَنْ أَذِنَ لَهُ الرَّحْمَـنُ

except him whom Ar-Rahman allows,

وَقَالَ صَوَاباً

and he will speak what is right.
Meaning, the truth. And from the truth is the fact that there is no god worthy of worship except Allah.

Our voices which we raised arrogantly above others will be quiet in humiliation before Allah ﷻ,
Imagine this scene and reflect whether you’ll have any words to say.
Allah ﷻ says

وَجَاءَ رَبُّكَ وَالْمَلَكُ صَفًّا صَفًّا

And your Lord comes with Angels Row upon Row.

وَجِيءَ يَوْمَئِذٍ بِجَهَنَّمَ

And Hellfire is brought near on that day.

Do you think the idle laughter and chit chat or anything will come to your tongue when Allah ﷻ descends for the reckoning after 50,000 years with Angels Row upon Row?

And what about during your judgement, do you think you’ll want the arrogant confidence you had in Dunya, on Qiyamah?

When Allah ﷻ says

الْيَوْمَ نَخْتِمُ عَلَى أَفْوَهِهِمْ وَتُكَلِّمُنَآ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَتَشْهَدُ أَرْجُلُهُمْ بِمَا كَانُواْ يَكْسِبُونَ

This Day, We shall seal up their mouths, and their hands will speak to Us, and their legs will bear witness to what they used to earn.

May Allah ﷻ protect us.
