'Sharh Hadeeth Jibra'eel' by Shaikh Muhammad ibn Saleh al-Uthaimeen
"Faith in the Last Day is to
believe that mankind will be resurrected and recompensed for their deeds.
It is to believe in
everything that has come to us in the Book and the Sunnah concerning the
description of that Day.
Allah has vividly described that Day such as the following verse, “O
mankind! Fear your Lord and be dutiful to Him! Verily, the earthquake of
the Hour (of Judgment) is a terrible thing. The Day you shall see it, every
nursing mother will forget her nursling and every pregnant one will drop
her load, and you shall see mankind as in a drunken state. Yet they will
not be drunk but severe will be the Torment of Allah.” [Soorah al-Hajj
There are numerous descriptions of the Last Day in the Quran and the Sunnah
that testify to the horror and terrible nature of this Day.
Faith in the Last Day is not limited to believing in the Day that will be
established after resurrection, as Shaikhul-Islam ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah)
writes in Aqeedah al-Wastiyyah, “Faith in the Last Day includes
believing in everything that the Messenger has informed us about that will
happen after death.”
