Additional Resources

After you leave this world, you will enter another. A world you cannot see and yet it is a fundamental part of our belief. How can you begin to imagine this world? In this course you will learn about how Allah and then our Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa-sallam) describes the sequence of events beginning from the signs of the Hour, the Day of Judgement and all that occurs up until we enter upon our final destination either in the terrible torments of the Hellfire or the everlasting pleasures of Paradise.

And who believe in what has been sent down to you (Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa-sallam and in [the Books] what was sent down before you and they believe with certainty in the Hereafter. Surat al-Baqarah, 2:4

Learning about the Hereafter with correct understanding is the solution to the confusions we face regarding matters of the Unseen, a core aspect of Muslim belief. This knowledge strengthens the iman of a Muslim and aims to build taqwah by establishing love, fear and hope of Allah.
