Doubting the day of Judgment ???

Asalamu alaykum

In the Quran there are 2 words that are used to mean doubt:

الشك and الريب

I have produced some videos to demonstrate the difference in meaning and how they are used in the Quran.


It beomes clear that الريب is a state of declusion and is not based on clear proof. Let us see what Allah (swt) says regarding the disbelievers' rejection of an afterlife in Surat Al Jathiya 45:32:

وَإِذَا قِيلَ إِنَّ وَعْدَ اللَّهِ حَقٌّ وَالسَّاعَةُ لَا رَيْبَ فِيهَا قُلْتُمْ مَا نَدْرِي مَا السَّاعَةُ إِنْ نَظُنُّ إِلَّا ظَنًّا وَمَا نَحْنُ بِمُسْتَيْقِنِينَ 
And when it was said, Surely the promise of Allah is true and as for the hour, there is no doubt about it, you said: We do not know what the hour is; we do not think (that it will come to pass) save a passing thought, and we are not at all sure.

The doubt of the disbelievers is based nothing but on conjecture. They have absolutely no proof for their belief . If one was to examine the matter logically it becomes clear that believing in an hour would be more logical and advantageous .

La al nafiyatu lil Jins was used in the verse

لَا رَيْبَ
which negates any doubt about the hour that causes one to reject it. Is it illogical and absurd for one to reject an after life based on no evidence.

  1. Assalamu alaikoum my brother thank you strongly for the way you have explained the word Doubt, which i believe no1 in islam or even the non believers should have when it comes to the Qur'an caus the Qur'an's words are from ALLAH swt therefore they are powerful words that no1 should ever Doubt, ALLAHU AKBUR, May ALLAH swt Reward you our brother for your time, Ameen.
    May ALLAH swt have Mercy on our souls insha'Allah, Ameen.
