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

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

“When the Imminent Event (of Doom) will occur,” [1]
“there will be no one to deny its occurrence.” [2]

COMMENTARY: The Day of Resurrection: Ibn Kathir says Al-Waqi’ah is one of the names of the Day of Resurrection, because there is no room for doubt in its occurrence. It is real and will surely come to pass.

( “...there will be no one to deny its occurrence...” 56:2). The word Kathibah in this context is the verbal noun, like 'Afiyah’ and 'Aqibah’. The sense of the verse is that 'the news of the occurrence of this event cannot be a false news'. Some authorities have taken the word ‘Kaathibah’ in the sense of ‘Takthib’ [to deny] and the meaning, in that case, is clear that 'no one can deny the fact that it will come to pass'.

A dark shadow that lurks everywhere
Waiting for a place and time to strike
We are all faced with it at some point and time
It happens totally unexpected and without warning
And it can happen when it is expected

It is never free from pain and heartache
It is never pleasant and joyful
It hurts like crazy
And it is extremely unbearable

How do you deal with it?
How do you get over it?
How do you work through it?
Everyone feels it differently
Everyone has their own unique feelings

No one can make it better
No one can erase it
No one can change it
It is part of life
And we just have to somehow, sometime work through it

During a recent power outage my PC, Laptop, TV, DVD, IPAD, and a new surround sound system were all shut down. Also my cell phone battery was dead. To make matters worse it was raining so I couldn't play golf.

So I go to the kitchen to make coffee, OOPS, the coffee maker requires power, so I sit down and talked to my wife for a couple of hours.

You know, she seems like a nice person.
