Ruling on the one who denies the Hereafter, and how to convince him

Ruling on the one who denies the Hereafter, and how to convince him
What is the ruling on one who denies the life of the Hereafter? How can we convince those who deny it?.


Praise be to Allaah.

The one who denies the life
of the Hereafter is a disbeliever, because Allaah says (interpretation of
the meaning):

“And they said: ‘There is
no (other life) but our (present) life of this world, and never shall we be
resurrected (on the Day of Resurrection).’

30. If you could but see
when they will be held (brought and made to stand) in front of their Lord!
He will say: ‘Is not this (Resurrection and the taking of the accounts) the
truth?’ They will say: ‘Yes, by our Lord!’ He will then say: ‘So taste you
the torment because you used not to believe’”

[al-An’aam 6:29-30]

“Woe, that Day, to those
who deny.

11. Those who deny the Day
of Recompense.

12. And none can deny it
except every transgressor beyond bounds, (in disbelief, oppression and
disobedience to Allaah) the sinner!

13. When Our Verses (of
the Qur’aan) are recited to him, he says: ‘Tales of the ancients!’

14. Nay! But on their
hearts is the Raan (covering of sins and evil deeds) which they used to

15. Nay! Surely, they
(evil doers) will be veiled from seeing their Lord that Day.

16. Then verily, they will
indeed enter (and taste) the burning flame of Hell.

17. Then, it will be said
to them: ‘This is what you used to deny!’”

[al-Mutaffifeen 83:10-17]

“Nay, they deny the Hour
(the Day of Resurrection), and for those who deny the Hour, We have prepared
a flaming Fire (i.e. Hell)”

[al-Furqaan 25:11]

“And those who disbelieve
in the Ayaat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.)
of Allaah and the Meeting with Him, it is they who have no hope of My Mercy:
and it is they who will have a painful torment”

[al-‘Ankaboot 29:23]. 

As for convincing these
deniers, it may be done as follows: 


There are abundant reports
concerning the issue of the resurrection from the Prophets and Messengers in
the books and religions of divine origin, which were accepted by those
nations. So how can you deny it when you believe in what was transmitted to
you from a philosopher or the author of a principle or idea, even though
what he tells you does not reach the level of authenticity reached the texts
that speak of the resurrection? 


Reason attests to the
possibility of the resurrection, for several reasons:

one can deny that he was created after having been nothing. The One Who
created him and brought him into being after he was nothing is Able to bring
him back again, as Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): 

“And He it is Who
originates the creation, then He will repeat it (after it has been
perished); and this is easier for Him. His is the highest description (i.e.
none has the right to be worshipped but He, and there is nothing comparable
unto Him) in the heavens and in the earth. And He is the All‑Mighty, the

[al-Room 30:27]

“As We began the first
creation, We shall repeat it. (It is) a promise binding upon Us. Truly, We
shall do it”

[al-Anbiya’ 21:104] 

one denies the greatness of the creation of the heavens and the earth,
because of their vastness and the brilliance of their formation. The One Who
created them is able to create man, and recreating them is even easier for
Him. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“The creation of the
heavens and the earth is indeed greater than the creation of mankind”

[Ghaafir 40:57]

“Do they not see that
Allaah, Who created the heavens and the earth, and was not wearied by their
creation, is Able to give life to the dead? Yes, He surely is Able to do all

[al-Ahqaaf 46:33]

“Is not He Who created the
heavens and the earth, Able to create the like of them? Yes, indeed! He is
the All‑Knowing Supreme Creator.

82. Verily, His Command,
when He intends a thing, is only that He says to it, ‘Be!’ ___ and it is!”

[Ya-Seen 36:81-82] 


Everyone who has insight can see the earth dry and dead, with no vegetation,
then when the rain falls on it, it flourishes and its vegetation comes to
life after being dead. The One Who is able to revive the earth after it was
dead is able to revive the dead and raise them up. Allaah says
(interpretation of the meaning):

“And among His Signs (is
this), that you see the earth barren, but when We send down water (rain) to
it, it is stirred to life and growth (of vegetations). Verily, He Who gives
it life, surely is Able to give life to the dead (on the Day of
Resurrection). Indeed He is Able to do all things”

[Fussilat 41:39]. 


Reality bears witness to the
idea that the resurrection is possible. Events have been witnessed in which
the dead were brought back to life. In Soorat al-Baqarah, Allaah tells us of
five events, one of which is (interpretation of the meaning):

“Or like the one who
passed by a town and it had tumbled over its roofs. He said: ‘Oh! How will
Allaah ever bring it to life after its death?’ So Allaah caused him to die
for a hundred years, then raised him up (again). He said: ‘How long did you
remain (dead)?’ He (the man) said: ‘(Perhaps) I remained (dead) a day or
part of a day.’ He said: ‘Nay, you have remained (dead) for a hundred years,
look at your food and your drink, they show no change; and look at your
donkey! And thus We have made of you a sign for the people. Look at the
bones, how We bring them together and clothe them with flesh.’ When this was
clearly shown to him, he said, ‘I know (now) that Allaah is Able to do all

[al-Baqarah 2:259]. 


Wisdom dictates that there
should be the tesurrection after death so that each soul may be requited
according to what it has earned. Were it not for that, the creation of
mankind would be in vain, with no value or wisdom behind it, and there would
be no difference between mankind and the animals in this life. Allaah says
(interpretation of the meaning):

“Did you think that We had
created you in play (without any purpose), and that you would not be brought
back to Us?”

116. So Exalted be Allaah,
the True King: La ilaaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but
He), the Lord of the Supreme Throne!”

[al-Mu’minoon 23:115, 116]

“Verily, the Hour is
coming __ and I am almost hiding it __that every person may be rewarded for
that which he strives”

[Ta-Ha 20:15]

“And they swear by Allaah
their strongest oaths, that Allaah will not raise up him who dies. Yes, (He
will raise them up), __ a promise (binding) upon Him in truth, but most of
mankind know not.

39. In order that He may
make manifest to them the truth of that wherein they differ, and that those
who disbelieved (in Resurrection, and in the Oneness of Allaah) may know
that they were liars.

40. Verily, Our Word unto
a thing when We intend it, is only that We say unto it: ‘Be!’ — and it is”

[al-Nahl 16:38-40]

“The disbelievers pretend
that they will never be resurrected (for the Account). Say (O Muhammad
صلى الله عليه وسلم): ‘Yes! By my Lord,
you will certainly be resurrected, then you will be informed of (and
recompensed for) what you did; and that is easy for Allaah’”

[al-Taghaabun 64:7] 

If this proof has been
explained to those who deny the resurrection and they persist in denying it,
then they are arrogant and stubborn, and those who do wrong will come to
know by what overturning they will be overturned (’ara 26:227). End

Following note from Muslim Quran online Blog 

The first lesson to be learned by all Muslims is the importance of the Reading Quran Online. All Muslim should learn holy Quran online  is the Book of Allah All mighty. Every word which the quran reciter recites or he read quran is the word of Allah it is mentioned in Quran in Arabic that it is the guidance which has come from Allah. That is why we as Muslim say it is the Holy Book. We should  learn quran and focus on quran teaching thought by the quran tutor to the students and the tutor should arrange the kids quran lessons in such an easy manner so they can understand it easily and make there quran recitation online as beautiful as he could and teach them that the words of Koran were sent by Allah to our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) through the angel Jibraeel. And further more elaborate wile reading quran with teaching them the quran tafseer and the tajweed quran with its rules let then do quran memorization in the proper manner We as Muslim should respect the teachings of Quran and in every other manner when we are reading it or when we listen to Quran  wake up Muslims and spread the word of Islam to
