What is the Islamic name of the Final Day?

There are many names in Islam for the Final Day, the Day of Judgement. Here is a list with the Arabic names.

LAST UPDATED: 3 weeks ago

Islam teaches that there will be a Day of Judgement when all humans will be divided between the eternal destinations of Paradise and Hell. On this Last Day the world will be destroyed and Allah will raise all people and Jinns from the graves to be judged.

Until the Day of Judgement, deceased souls remain in their graves awaiting the resurrection. However, they will get a taste of their future destiny.

Those who are checked-in for Hell will suffer in their graves, while those bound for heaven will be in peace during this waiting period.

The resurrection is physical and Muslims believe that Allah will recreate the decayed body.

The Day of Judgement has many names in Islam. In this article, we will focus on the most common names – especially those that appear in the Holy Quran. It is interesting to see with which terms the Last Day is associated.
