The Day of Resurrection
Muslims believe that the entire world will come to an end on one appointed day, when everything will be annihilated. The Qur'an describes the Day of Resurrection (Youm al-Qiyama) as follows: “When the sky bursts apart, when planets are dispersed, when the seas spill forth, when graves are overturned, then each soul will know what it sent forward and what it left behind” (Qur'an 82:1–5).
At the moment of the final Hour, a trumpet will call the people to assembly. This trumpet will be blown by the angel Israfeel (Raphael), and will notify people that the time of Judgment has arrived. All living creatures, all people past and present, will be gathered together before God. There will be a mass panic as everyone starts worrying about the coming Judgment. “Then when the Trumpet is blown, there will be no more relationships between them that day, nor will one ask after another” (Qur'an 23:101).
