A cluster of events to take place before and on the day of resurrection is detailed in the Qur’an. This chapter describes these events and examines how traditional Muslim commentators and theologians have interpreted them. Among these events are the cataclysmic changes that will happen to the earth heralding the resurrection, the appearance of the savior figure, the resurrection of bodies and rejoining with souls, the judgment, and the consignment to final abodes of reward or punishment.

Keywords:   eschaton, heaven, hell, intercession, judgment, repentance, resurrection, savior, sin
