Surah Al-Waqiah 56: - (The Imminent Event)

With the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Most-Merciful

(..."We have created you; then why do you not appreciate it as true?"... [57])

COMMENTARY: Proof of the occurrence of the Day of Resurrection Thus far the Surah dealt with three categories of people on the Plain of Hashr (Gathering.) The verses so far described the reward and punishment of these three groups. The current set of verses warn the deviant skeptics and atheists who completely deny the Day of Judgement and life after death, or set up partners to Allah in His worship. The verses purport to tear down the curtain of negligence and ignorance that has kept man in the dark. Whatever exists, or is coming into existence at the present time, or will come into existence in the future in this cosmic world is as a result of the creative power of Allah. He brings them into existence, retains them and makes them subservient to man. The apparent causes of these events act as veils over Reality. Had these veils been removed and man is able to witness the creation of these things directly without the mediation of these apparent causes, he will be forced to believe in Allah. However, Allah has made this world a venue of test.

Therefore, whatever comes into existence comes under the veils of causes.

I look for you when the sky is blue
I look for you when the sun is bright
I look for you when the darkness falls
I look for you deep in the night
I look for you when I dream
I look for you when a nightmare gives me a fright
I look for you when I'm sad and blue
I look for you when I'm happy and glad
I look for you when the world is mad

I look for you when I see something good
I look for you when I see something bad
I look for you when my heart skips a beat
I look for you when I feel down and out
I look for you when I'm all alone
I look for you when things gets loud
I look for you in every crowd

I look for you when the leaves start to fall
I look for you when everything is dull
I look for you when the blossoms bloom
I look for you when I see the full moon
I look for you when the sun rises
I look for you when life is full of surprises

I look for you when I open my eyes
I look for you when I fall asleep
I look for you when hear your song
I look for you when life goes wrong

I look for you when I'm in pain
I look for you when life is a strain
I look for you when people don't care
I look for you because you were always there
I look for you in everything
I look for you everywhere

A man was very sick. Doctors feared the worst. He is at home one day, resting in his bed. He looks up and says, "Is my wife here?"

His wife replies, "Yes, dear, I'm here, next to you."
The man goes, "Are my children here?"
"Yes, Daddy, we are all here," say the children.
"Are my other relatives also here?"
And they say, "Yes, we are all here..."

The man sits up and says, "Then why in the world is the light on in the kitchen?"
