  1. Akhirah

    al-Ākhirah (Arabic: الآخرة, derived from Akhir which means last, ultimate, end or close) is an Arabic term for "the Hereafter".In Islamic eschatology, on the Day of Last Judgment, the natural or temporal world (dunya) will come to an end, the dead will be resurrected from their graves, and God will pronounce judgment on their deeds, consigning them for eternity to either the delights of jannah (paradise) or the flames of hellfire of jahannam. The belief that death is not the end of existence, but a transferral from the temporal world to the everlasting world, (al-Ākhirah), is a belief Islam shares with other Abrahamic religions such as Judaism and Christianity. Al-Ākhirah is referenced dozens of times in the Quran in numerous surahs where among other things, believers are told it makes "the enjoyment of this worldly life" (dunya) appear "insignificant"(Q.9:38). In connection with the Last Judgment, it is traditionally considered to be one of the six essential beliefs of Muslims, (along with Tawhid (monotheism), angels, the four Revealed Books (Injeel, Taurait, Quran and Zabur), prophets and messengers, and predestination). In Islamic doctrine, Al-Akhirah is necessary because the pious often suffer and unbelievers often prosper and enjoy themselves in the temporal world. To rectify that and to bring justice, Al-Akhirah with rewards of Jannah and punishment of Jahannam is necessary.



    Akhirah is an Arabic term that refers to the concept of afterlife or the hereafter in Islamic theology. It is the belief in a life that comes after death, where individuals are held accountable for their actions in this world and are rewarded or punished accordingly. Akhirah encompasses the belief in resurrection, judgment, heaven (paradise), and hell, as well as the concept of ultimate justice and eternal life. It is a fundamental belief in Islam and plays a significant role in shaping a Muslim's perspective on morality, accountability, and the purpose of life.


  1. Akhirah

    Ákhirah or Akhirat is an Islamic term referring to the after life. It is repeatedly referenced in chapters of the Qur'an concerning Yaum al Qiyamah, the Islamic Day of Judgment, an important part of Islamic eschatology. Life is temporary on the earth. Traditionally, it is considered to be one of the six main beliefs of Muslims, the others including: Belief in One God, Belief in God's Angels, Belief in the Revealed Books, Belief in the Prophets of God, and Belief in Predestination/Decree.... Much like many other monotheistic religions, Muslims have the similar belief of the three-tiered cosmos. This is the belief that there are three cosmos, being heaven and hell, with Earth or humanity in between. According to the Islamic beliefs, Allah will play the role of the qadi, weighing the deeds of each individual. It is believed that these good deeds can be increased by reciting the holy Quran and Allah's name as "SubhannAllah" which means "glory is to God". He will decide whether that person's Ákhirah lies in Jahannam or Jannah on the basis of the weight of either good or bad deeds in comparison with one another. The judgment doesn't depend upon the amount of deeds as much as it does on the will behind the deed, deeds are judged on the basis of the will behind it. Heaven and Hell both have various levels. There will be no judgment for those who have sacrificed their lives for Islam. Jannah or Heaven and Jahannam or Hell both have various levels. The placement of a person may depend upon the extent of his or her good deeds. It is also said that God may forgive a sin against himself but not against another human. No religion except Islam shall be accepted even though Bible, Gospel, Psalms and some other previous religious texts are said to be from God in Islam, but they are believed to edited to a great extent over time by people according to their own will. God has promised to keep the Quran safe from any such changes. This belief has been previously referred to as the Islamic [Day of Judgment]
