Twinkle, Twinkle, A Blink Of An Eye

The discussion which began with Time and Man and illustrated with the story about The Cave Dwellers culminates here with the Final Outcome as to why we perceive Time as we do. It is at once a Lesson and a Mercy that Time itself is maleable in God's Hands and in that manner those not deserving of Punishment are Shielded from any Adversity the Passing of the 'Hour' of Judgment entails. For all we know the World is Destroyed and ReAssembled Time and Time again with many of us being Blissfully Unaware of the Judgment that is Being Handed Down to the Reprobates; and those deserving of a Beautiful Reward are Meted Out their Just Desserts while jealous eyes are likewise Averted.

16 Nahl (Bees)
وَلِلّهِ غَيْبُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَمَا أَمْرُ السَّاعَةِ إِلاَّ كَلَمْحِ الْبَصَرِ أَوْ هُوَ أَقْرَبُ إِنَّ اللّهَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ 16:77

16:77 To God Belongs the Secrets of the Heavens and the Earth and His Commandment
of the Hour is but a Blink of the Eye (a twinkle) or even closer; Surely, God Has
Power Over All Things.

54 Quamar (Moon)
وَمَا أَمْرُنَا إِلَّا وَاحِدَةٌ كَلَمْحٍ بِالْبَصَرِ 54:50

54:50 Our Commandment is but a single Blink of the Eye (a twinkle)

79 Nazyi'at
يَسْأَلُونَكَ عَنِ السَّاعَةِ أَيَّانَ مُرْسَاهَا 79:42
79:42 They ask you about the Hour ‘When shall it befall?’

فِيمَ أَنتَ مِن ذِكْرَاهَا 79:43
79:43 How could you know (have any Remembrance of it)?

إِلَى رَبِّكَ مُنتَهَاهَا 79:44
79:44 It’s Final Outcome Rests with Your Lord.

إِنَّمَا أَنتَ مُنذِرُ مَن يَخْشَاهَا 79:45
79:45 You are only Warning those who Stand in Awe of it.

كَأَنَّهُمْ يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَهَا لَمْ يَلْبَثُوا إِلَّا عَشِيَّةً أَوْ ضُحَاهَا 79:46
79:46 The Day they see it they will think it's as though they had only been there
(tarried there) just an eve or overnight.

30 Al-Rum (The Romans)
وَيَوْمَ تَقُومُ السَّاعَةُ يُقْسِمُ الْمُجْرِمُونَ مَا لَبِثُوا غَيْرَ سَاعَةٍ كَذَلِكَ كَانُوا يُؤْفَكُونَ 30:55

30:55 On the Day the Hour arises the criminals swear they had not tarried but for an Hour;
how can they succeed?

وَقَالَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْعِلْمَ وَالْإِيمَانَ لَقَدْ لَبِثْتُمْ فِي كِتَابِ اللَّهِ إِلَى يَوْمِ الْبَعْثِ فَهَذَا يَوْمُ الْبَعْثِ وَلَكِنَّكُمْ كُنتُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ 30:56

30:56 And say those given Knowledge and Faith, 'In this manner you have been Raised
according to God's Scripture to the Day of Reckoning for this is the Day of Judgment
and of it you were unaware (wont to deny it)'

46 Al-Ahqaf
فَاصْبِرْ كَمَا صَبَرَ أُوْلُوا الْعَزْمِ مِنَ الرُّسُلِ وَلَا تَسْتَعْجِل لَّهُمْ كَأَنَّهُمْ يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَ مَا يُوعَدُونَ
لَمْ يَلْبَثُوا إِلَّا سَاعَةً مِّن نَّهَارٍ بَلَاغٌ فَهَلْ يُهْلَكُ إِلَّا الْقَوْمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ 46:35

46:35 So be Patient as the Community of Messengers before you were Patient and
do not Rush it for them; the Day they see what they are Promised they will think
they had only tarried but an Hour of the Morn or less than that; will any but the
reprobates perish?
