Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
VEN the world will end .. the angel will blow a trumpet.so if music was haram do you think that ALLAH will order the angel do use a haram thing?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Angel will blow trumpet
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 36 Surah Yaa Seen verses 48-51:
48 Further they say "When will this Promise ( of the coming of the Hour come to pass) if what ye say is true?"
49 They will not (have to) wait for aught but a single Blast: it will seize them while they are yet disputing among themselves!
50 No (chance) will they then have by will to dispose (of their affairs) nor to return to their own people!
51 The trumpet shall be sounded when behold! From the sepulchers (men) will rush forth to their Lord!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 69 Surah Haaqaah verses 13-18:
13 Then when one Blast is sounded on the Trumpet
14 And the earth is moved and its mountains, and they are crushed to powder at one stroke.
15 On that Day shall the (Great) Event come to pass!
16 And the sky will be rent asunder for it will that Day be flimsy
17 And the Angels will be on its sides, and eight will that Day bear the Throne of thy Lord above them.
18 That Day shall ye be brought to Judgment: not an act of yours that ye hide will be hidden.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 74 Surah Mudhathir verses 8-10:
8 Finally when the Trumpet is sounded
9 That will be that Day; a Day of Distress!
10 Far from easy for those without Faith.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 39 Surah Zumar verse 68:
68 The Trumpet will (just) be sounded when all that are in the heavens and on earth will swoon except such as it will please Allah (to exempt). Then will a second one be sounded when behold, they will be standing and looking on!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 78 Surah Nabaa verses 18-20:
18 The Day that the Trumpet shall be sounded and ye shall come forth in crowds;
19 And the heavens shall be opened as if there were doors
20 And the mountains shall vanish as if they were a mirage.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 27 Surah Naml verses 87-88:
87 And the Day that the Trumpet will be sounded then will be smitten with terror; those who are in the heavens and those who are on earth except such as Allah will please (to exempt): and all shall come to His (Presence) as beings conscious of their lowliness.
88 Thou seest the mountains and thinkest them firmly fixed: but they shall pass away as the clouds pass away: (such is) the Artistry of Allah Who disposes of all things in perfect order: for He is well-acquainted with all that ye do.
Al-Tirmidhi HadithHadith 5527 Narrated byAbuSa'id al-Khudri
Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "How can I be at ease when the one who will blow the Trumpet (Angel Israfeel) has put his lips to the Trumpet, inclined his ear, and bent his forehead, waiting to hear the Command to blow it?” This (information of events) very much distressed his companions, so the Prophet (saws) told them to seek comfort through reciting "Sufficient for us is Allah and an excellent Guardian is He".
Respected brother in Islam, in light of the above guidance of the Glorious Quran and the Sunnah, we absolutely assure you that the Trumpet which Hadrat Israfeel (a.s.) has put on his lips and is awaiting the Command of The Lord Most Majestic will not be some soothing music to the ears of man…..but rather it will be an absolutely unbearable blast; and every single being in the heavens and the on earth who hears the blast of that Trumpet will swoon with terror!!!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Hajj verses 1-2:
1 O mankind! Fear your Lord! For the convulsion of the Hour (which the Blast from the Trumpet will herald) will be a thing most terrible!
2 The Day ye shall see it every mother giving suck shall forget her suckling-babe; and every pregnant female shall drop her load (unformed); and thou shalt see mankind as in a drunken riot, yet they will not be drunk: but dreadful (on that Day) will be the Wrath of Allah!
We seek refuge in The Lord Most Gracious Most Merciful from the terror of the Day when the Inevitable Blast from the Trumpet is sounded.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
