As-Sur; The Trumpet Print E-mail

Allah's statement,

﴿يَوْمَ يُنفَخُ فِى الصُّوَرِ﴾

(on the Day when the Sur will be blown...) refers to His statement,

﴿وَيَوْمَ يَقُولُ كُن فَيَكُونُ﴾

(and on the Day He will say: "Be!'' it shall become.) as we stated above. Or, it means,

﴿وَلَهُ الْمُلْكُ يَوْمَ يُنفَخُ فِى الصُّوَرِ﴾

(His will be the dominion on the Day when the Sur will be blown.) Allah said in other Ayat,

﴿لِّمَنِ الْمُلْكُ الْيَوْمَ لِلَّهِ الْوَحِدِ الْقَهَّارِ﴾

(Whose is the kingdom this Day It is Allah's, the One, the Irresistible!) ﴿40:16﴾, and,

﴿الْمُلْكُ يَوْمَئِذٍ الْحَقُّ لِلرَّحْمَـنِ وَكَانَ يَوْماً عَلَى الْكَـفِرِينَ عَسِيراً ﴾

(The sovereignty on that Day will be the true (sovereignty), belonging to the Most Beneficent (Allah), and it will be a hard Day for the disbelievers.) ﴿25:26﴾ The Sur is the Trumpet into which the angel Israfil, peace be upon him, will blow. The Messenger of Allah said,

«إِنَّ إِسْرَافِيلَ قَدِ الْتَقَمَ الصُّورَ، وَحَنَى جَبْهَتَهُ يَنْتَظِرُ مَتَى يُؤْمَر فَيَنْفُخ»

(Israfil has held the Sur in his mouth and lowered his forehead, awaiting the command to blow in it.) Muslim recorded this Hadith in his Sahih. Imam Ahmad recorded that `Abdullah bin `Amr said, "A bedouin man said, `O Allah's Messenger! What is the Sur' He said,

«قَرْنٌ يُنْفَخُ فِيه»

(A Trumpet which will be blown.)''

﴿وَإِذْ قَالَ إِبْرَهِيمُ لاًّبِيهِ ءَازَرَ أَتَتَّخِذُ أَصْنَاماً ءَالِهَةً إِنِّى أَرَاكَ وَقَوْمَكَ فِى ضَلَـلٍ مُّبِينٍ - وَكَذَلِكَ نُرِى إِبْرَهِيمَ مَلَكُوتَ السَّمَـوَتِ وَالاٌّرْضِ وَلِيَكُونَ مِنَ الْمُوقِنِينَ - فَلَمَّا جَنَّ عَلَيْهِ الَّيْلُ رَأَى كَوْكَباً قَالَ هَـذَا رَبِّى فَلَمَّآ أَفَلَ قَالَ لا أُحِبُّ الاٌّفِلِينَ - فَلَمَّآ رَأَى الْقَمَرَ بَازِغاً قَالَ هَـذَا رَبِّى فَلَمَّآ أَفَلَ قَالَ لَئِن لَّمْ يَهْدِنِى رَبِّى لاّكُونَنَّ مِنَ الْقَوْمِ الضَّآلِّينَ - فَلَماَّ رَأَى الشَّمْسَ بَازِغَةً قَالَ هَـذَا رَبِّى هَـذَآ أَكْبَرُ فَلَمَّآ أَفَلَتْ قَالَ يقَوْمِ إِنِّى بَرِىءٌ مِّمَّا تُشْرِكُونَ - إِنِّى وَجَّهْتُ وَجْهِىَ لِلَّذِى فَطَرَ السَّمَـوَتِ وَالاٌّرْضَ حَنِيفاً وَمَآ أَنَاْ مِنَ الْمُشْرِكِينَ ﴾

(74. And (remember) when Ibrahim said to his father Azar: "Do you take idols as gods Verily, I see you and your people in manifest error.'') (75. Thus did we show Ibrahim the kingdom of the heavens and the earth that he be one of those who have faith with certainty. ) (76. When the night overcame him he saw a Kawkab. He said: "This is my lord.'' But when it Afala, he said: "I like not those that set.'') (77. When he saw the moon rising up, he said: "This is my lord.'' But when it set, he said: "Unless my Lord guides me, I shall surely be among the misguided people.'') (78. When he saw the sun rising up, he said: "This is my lord. This is greater.'' But when it Afalat, he said: "O my people! I am indeed free from all that you join as partners in worship with Allah.) (79. Verily, I have turned my face towards Him Who has created the heavens and the earth, Hanifan, and I am not of the idolators.'')
