QIYAMAH and THE DOOMSDAY
In Islam, the Day of Resurrection or the Day of Judgment is believed to be God's final assessment of humanity as it exists. Belief in al-Qiyāmah is considered a fundamental belief of faith by all Muslims. Belief in the Day of Judgment is one of the six articles of faith. During Divine judgement, it is believed that each person's Book of Deeds, in which "every small and great thing is recorded", will be opened. Throughout the judgment, the underlying principle is complete and perfect justice administered by God.
The exact time when these events are to occur is not specified; however, there are said to be major and minor signs which are to occur near the time of Qiyamah (end time). Many Qur'anic verses, especially the earlier ones, are dominated by the idea of the nearing of the day of resurrection. The angel Israfil, is waiting for Allah to give him the command to sound the horn which will signal the beginning of the Judgment Day. Traditions say Muhammad will be the first to be brought back to life.Accounts on judgement tell that mercy and forgiveness will be granted on that day.
Many chapters/surah of the Qur'an describe proposed events to occur on the day of judgment: * Destruction/flattening of the earth * Creation of a new earth * Resurrection of people * Gathering of the people * Judgement by Allah * Separation of the people who are hell-bound and heaven-bound
These are the signs which are thought to occur closer to the supposed day of judgment. 1. The appearance of Masih ad-Dajjal (Evil Figure) 2. The appearance of Ya'jooj and Ma'jooj (Gog and Magog)[20][21] 3. The appearance of the Dabbat al-ard (The Qur'an mentions that the Beast will address the unbelievers and admonish them for
