Major Issue, Divine Law and Guidance

A scene explaining the Day of Judgement.

Theme

The theme of this Surah is the Resurrection and the Hereafter. The people are warned: "The Great Disaster! What is the Great Disaster? And do you know what the Great Disaster is?" Thus preparing the listeners for the news of the dreadful calamity, the incident of resurrection is depicted that on that Day, people will be running about in confusion and bewilderment just like so many scattered moths around a light, and the mountains will be uprooted and flown about like carded wool. Then Allah's Court will be established and the people will be called upon to account for their deeds. The people whose good deeds will be heavier than their evil deeds, will be blessed with bliss and happiness, and the people whose good deeds will be lighter than their evil deeds, will be cast into the burning fire of hell.
