When we talk about Judgement day, we usually think of heaven and hell. But the question arises is that how judgement day will occur? It is said that it will happen in the form of natural disasters raging from west to east. Most common believe is that earthquakes will rock the planet and mega tsunamis will wash away the planet. Though as compared to other religions in the world, Islam is the only one which gives a sort of more information on the events that are likely to happen before, during and after the Judgement day.
One thing that must be highlighted is that Islam shows that there will be abnormal weather and severe natural disasters that will show the signs of Judgement day. Weather is likely to play an important role on the “Last Day”. Although there are many other events too that will happen but weather will be also playing its role side by side. Most of us think that global warming will be the force that will eventually cause these wicked and unusual phenomena to happen. What ever the reason be, we might never know how it all will start.
There are around hundred minor signs given in Islam about Judgement day but few signs are of weather, which are as follows;
- Earthquakes will increase
“And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.”
- World-wide Famines will occur
There are few major signs in Islam regarding Judgement day but almost all has links to meteorology and geology unlike the minor signs. Following are the major signs;
- Three severe Earthquakes
One earthquake will occur in the East while the other in West. The third one will occur in the Arabian Peninsula, all of them will swallow the earth’s surface. Though no major scientific reason is available for these earthquakes as of yet but the Holy Prophet (PBUH) has said regarding the Arabian earthquake that;
“All of those people would sink but they would be resurrected and judged according to their intentions.”
The Eastern earthquake has been said to sink all the regions in that part of the world, some religious scholars have defined the term “sink” as tsunami, if that is the case then the March 2011 and 2004 tsunami must be kept in mind. The Western earthquake will also have a huge impact on the world, the most active fault line in the west is the California fault line. These earthquakes will send wave of destruction from all the corners of earth and eventually in the end a new world will born.
- Smog will hover the world
The number of smog covering the cities has increased during the last few years mainly due to the increase in population and air pollution. Smog is a word derived from smoke and fog. The smog is highly dangerous form of air pollution that can cause breathing problems as well as eye infections. In Islam it is said that;
“Smog will occur due to the sins of the people as what evil have they done in their lives.”
- Fire in the west
- Big gust of wind
- And finally: Sun will rise from West and set in East
“The day of the hour will not come until the sun rises from the west, if it rises and the people saw it they will all believe, when a time where nothing will be accepted anymore of believe the truth”
Judgement day begins!
