What is Yawm-al-Qiyamah?

Yawm al Qiyamah- The day of Standing.

On Yawm al Qiyamah Allah will question us for every single thing we have done.

The weighing of the deeds

On our shoulders there are two angels (one on each shoulder, the angel on the right writes down our good deeds and the angel  on the left writes down our bad deeds).On Yawm al Qiyamah Allah will weigh our books of deeds on a weighing scale.If our book of good deeds is heavier we will go to Jannah (paradise).

The Blowing of the trumpet

On Yawm al Qiyamah two trumpets will be blown,the first trumpet is when all of creation will die and after the second trumpet is blown Allah will start resurrection. Israfeel* (a.s)’s command from Allah is to blow the trumpet, he already has the trumpet to his lips and is waiting for the command from Allah to blow it.

The 7 events of Yawm al Qiyamah

  1. The sounding of the trumpet.
  2. The opening of the graves.
  3. The gathering and standing.
  4. The Judgement and the weighing of the deeds.
  5. The sorting of the three groups:those on the right, those on the left and the foremost of the foremost.
  6. Final determination.
  7. Final destination.


The steps of the day of judgment:

  1. The Sound of the Trumpet (Sur, in Arabic) will be the first stage ot the Day of Judgement. Allah has mentioned it in many Ayats of the Qur’an.

For example:

 “They esteemed not Allah as is His due; and the whole earth shall be in His grip on the Day of Judgement, and heavens rolled up in His right hand (power). Hallowed is He, and Exalted is He, High above all they associate with Him.

 “And the Trumpet shall be blown, then shall swoon (i.e., die) whoever is in heavens and whoever is in the earth, except those whom Allah has willed (to keep alive on that occasion). Then (the Trumpet) shall be blown again and lo! They shall stand up awaiting.


  42 The changing of the earth is mentioned in the Qu’ran 14:48.“On the day the earth shall be changed into a different earth, and (so will be) the heavens: and all shall be marshalled forth unto Allah, the One, the Dominant.”

“At that time, Allah will create a very loud voice which will ring throughout the earth and heaven: “Whose is the kingdom this day?’1 No one will give any answer (as there will be none alive); then He will answer Himself creating a loud voice: ‘(It is) Of Allah, the One, the Subduer’ (Qur’an, 40:16)  I subdued all the creatures and gave them death; verily, I am Allah, there is no god except I alone, there is no partner for me nor any minister; and I made the creatures by my hand (Power) and I made them die by my Will; and I shall resurrect them by my Power.’

 “Then Allah will cause the second blowing of the Trumpet; the voice will come out from that side which is towards the heavens, and there will be none among the inhabitants of the heavens but will become alive and will stand as he was before; and will return the bearers of the ‘Arsh’ and the Garden and Fire will be brought forth, and the people will be gathered for reckoning.”Saying this,Imam Zaynul-Abedin (A) wept intensely
