When the Trumpet shall be Blown

Guidance-I

“And on that Day We shall let some of them to surge like waves against others, and the Trumpet shall be blown. Then We shall gather them all together. That will be the Day We shall place Hell before the unbelievers whose eyes had become blind against My admonition and who were utterly disinclined to hear it. Do the unbelievers, then, believe that they can take any of My creatures as their guardians beside Me? Verily We have prepared Hell to welcome the unbelievers.

(Al-Qur’ān – 18:99-102)

These ayats throw light on some scenes of the Day of Judgement. The central point of the entire Surah is that the Holy Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be to him) called upon his people to give up polytheism and to embrace monotheism in its place; to give up excessive devotion to the world and to base their conduct on a strong belief in the Hereafter. The Makkan chiefs – thanks to the intoxication caused by their riches and eminence – spurned this call. Additionally, they persecuted and humiliated those righteous people who had accepted the Messenger’s call.

These verses wonder whether the unbelievers still think, despite all they have been told, that it will do them any good to take God’s creatures rather than God as their patron and guardians. They warn the unbelievers in a clear and straightforward manner that in the Day of Resurrection God would place Hell before them. This would be the ultimate result of their being blind to His admonition and being disinclined to hear it.
