Of Men and Jinn on the Day of Judgement

“And the Jinn know well, as men do not, how it will be when God calls them to Judgement. They will call out Allahu akbar, whose real meaning is, ‘We have become a sacrifice before Thee, O God!’ And they will be drawn up in ranks, both men and Jinn, before Him on the Day of Judgement. For on that day God will ask them both:

‘What have you produced for Me during this term of respite which I have given thee? In what work have you brought your life to its end? Speak plainly! How have you dissipated the senses I have given thee? You have expended eyes and ears and intellect, but what have you done with them? I gave thee all of these to till the soil of good works, now display to Me your harvest! I gave thee bounty, now where was thy gratitude?'”

Excerpt adapted from Master of the Jinn.

May Allah have mercy on us all.        

Ya Haqq!

    Exquisite reflection on the bounty we have, and the gratitude we should constantly be mindful of. I look forward to reading your novel, Irving.

    Had quick question. Any relation to Mrs. Karchmar – 9th grade english teacher who taught at KAS in Karachi, PK back in 1992?

  5. Irving says:

    Ya Haqq!
