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

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

“(and you will be [divided into] three categories ... 56:7)”

COMMENTARY: Three Categories of People on the Day of Resurrection: - (“and you will be [divided into] three categories...” 56:7)

lbn Kathir says that people will be divided into three different categories on the Day of Resurrection. One group will be on the right side of Allah's Throne, and they are those who were brought forth from the right side of the loin of Adam AS. These people will be given their Ledgers of Deeds in their right hands and will be taken to the right side of the Divine Throne. They are the inmates of Paradise.

The second category comprises those who will be placed to the left of Allah's Throne. These are people who were brought forth from the left side of the loin of Adam AS. This category will be given their Ledgers of Deeds in their left hands and will be taken to the left side of the Divine Throne. They are the inhabitants of the Fire. [We seek refuge in Allah from their behaviour pattern!]

The third category consists of As-sabiqun [the foremost] who are described as Al-muqarrabun [the fortunate believers who are granted special nearness to Allah]. They will be placed in front of the Divine Throne. They include the Messengers, the Prophets, Siddiqin, martyrs and the friends of Allah. They are fewer than those on the right side.

Towards the end of the Surah, the description of the three categories will be taken up again to mention that some signs start appearing, right from the time of death of a person, to indicate in which category he or she is going to fall.

The pain I feel
The tears I don’t allow
My heart is broken
Of emotions unspoken

How do I let it out
Should I scream or
Should I shout?
The pain is intense and unbearable

How do I put it in words
If I am not even allowed to feel it?
How do I cry when my tears are all dry?
I have to be strong
And I have to be tough

The only way I can hold on
Is to let the tears flow through my soul
No one knows
And no one can see
As I put on a smile
And act all happy

Piano Tuner

It seems that every time John, our piano tuner, comes to our house, he scolds me for waiting too long between tunings. I agree with him that it should be done every six months, but I don't really think about it until the piano sounds off-key. The last time he came over, I was on the defensive.

"If you would send out a postcard reminder like the dentist," I declared, "I would make sure to call you for an appointment in a timely fashion."

Without hesitating, he replied, "From now on, when the dentist sends you a postcard, call me."
