The Most Swift of reckoners is God Almighty
Surah ‘Al-‘An-‘aam (Cattle) – Chapter – 6)–Stage – 2
Verses – 61 & 62 of 165, Section – 8 of 20 (Part – 7)
In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
|61. And He is the Omnipotent over His slaves. He sendeth guardians over you until, when death cometh unto one of you, Our Messengers receive him, and they neglect not.
62. Then are they restored unto Allaah, their Lord, the Just. Surely His is the judgment. And He is the Most Swift of reckoners.
|61. Wa Huwal-Qaahiru fawqa ‘ibaadihii wa yursilu ‘alaykum hafazah. Hattaaa ‘izaa jaaa-‘a ‘ahada-kumul-mawtu ta-waffat-hu rusuluNaa wa hum laa yufarri-tuun.
62. Summa rudduuu ‘IlAllaahi Maw-laa-humul-Haqq. ‘Alaa lahul-Hukmu wa Huwa ‘Asra-‘ul-haasibiin.
It was told in the previous verse that age of the mankind is a collection of some forms and some days. At night he goes to sleep and by the day he gets up and goes to work again. Neither getting up is in his control and nor the work of previous day remains in his memory during falling asleep. Only Allaah Almighty raises him and reminds the series of his last day’s works, and he goes to do those works, which were left by him incomplete before going to sleep. The aim to make known from it was that the sleep is also like a death but that is a long sleep. After that, Allaah Almighty will raise him again and remind his entire previous deeds and acts, and He will tell: Still you have to see the consequence of your works and deeds, and series of your worldly acts has remained incomplete to this respect. -Complete it now either by suffering full punishment as retribution of your worldly wicked and evil acts, or obtaining whole reward of your good deeds.
It is commanded that the human being executes his age some time in sleeping and sometime waking. He should reflect in it that neither sleeping is in his control, nor waking. Only Allaah Almighty it is Who causes to sleep and raises him again, and even that He reminds him also his daily tasks.
The result, which comes out from it is that Allaah Almighty is the Omnipotent over His slaves every way and sends guardians over their deeds every day. Such a time will come when the Angels of death will come unto them instead of guardian Angels (peace be upon Them) of their works and they will perform their duty fully without any favor or short fall and the mankind will sleep until the Day of Resurrection.
When the long time of his sleep will end, then Allaah Almighty will rouse the human being from sleep and he will stand before his Real and True Owner. Then he will know completely that the Decision of his fate is only in the Hand of Allaah Almighty. There will be no late in the Court of Allaah Almighty. A record of mankind’s stirring deeds relating to his entire worldly life will be handed over to him in a moment. And then, when he will be assured: These are your deeds. By weighing, his good and bad deeds will be separated. According to the weight of every individual’s deeds, human beings will be sent on proper places, likewise for suffering punishment of wicked deeds in to the Fire of Hell and for enjoying rewards of good acts in to the Paradise.
