يَوْمَ تَرَوْنَهَا تَذْهَلُ كُلُّ مُرْضِعَةٍ عَمَّا أَرْضَعَتْ وَتَضَعُ كُلُّ ذَاتِ حَمْلٍ حَمْلَهَا وَتَرَى النَّاسَ سُكَارَىٰ وَمَا هُم بِسُكَارَىٰ وَلَٰكِنَّ عَذَابَ اللَّهِ شَدِيدٌ
On the Day you see it every nursing mother will be distracted from that [child] she was nursing, and every pregnant woman will abort her pregnancy, and you will see the people [appearing] intoxicated while they are not intoxicated; but the punishment of Allah is severe. (22:2)
- The greatest lesson that one can take from Hajj is that they will be resurrected on the Day of Judgement.
- One can see a sample of the Day of Judgement when one looks at ‘arafah.
- The first description of Day of Judgement given in this surah is that of a mother and her child.
- We know the most intimate relationship in this world is that of a mother and child, to the extent that the mother will sacrifice everything for the child.
- But the horrors of the Day of Judgement even make the mother completely forget about her child.
- Not only forget, but forget while in the state of breast feeding (the word murd’ without the ta means a mother who breastfeeds. The addition of ta implies that the child is being suckled).
