" The Hereafter "
How will the deeds be weighed on the Day of Judgement? What does the mizan look like?
Weighing the deeds will take place after resurrection.
Resurrection is coming to life again after death. The essential parts of the death will assemble, their souls will be replaced and the death will come out of their graves. After that, people will gather on the place of judgment in groups.
Weighing the deeds
“The weighing on that day is the true (weighing). As for those whose scale is heavy, they are the successful.
And as for those whose scale is light: those are they who lose their souls because they used to wrong Our revelations.” (Surat-u Araf, 9)
Mizan is the process of weighing the amounts of deeds and also it is the scale used for this. Mind is not capable enough to comprehend the process of weighing and the nature of the scale. Even though mizan, the scale, has been comprehended like an ordinary scale having two pans and two arms, and even though it has been portrayed as an ordinary scale, its original shape and nature is unknown.
Today, there are instruments to measure voice, motion and electricity. Mizan is an instrument which will weigh deeds in the most proper and the best way of which the shape is unknown to us.
Besides, in the ayahs, the word “mizan” is also used in the plural form “mawaaziin”.
There are several interpretations about the meaning of this plural usage:
The plural form is used to glory the dignity of the “mizan”.
Or to express the multitude of people.
Or it indicates that there will be separate scales for each person.
Or deeds concerning the hearts will be weighed on a different scale, ones concerning the words on a different scale and deeds of the organs will be weighed on another scale.
Or it is pluralized because mizan has many parts and many details.
a) What will be weighed on mizan are the books of deeds. (Tafsir Ibn Kathir )
b) The good deeds will be weighed transforming into good and luminous appearances and the misdeeds will be weighed transforming into ugly appearances. (Tafsir Ibn Kathir )
c) Man will be weighed first with his good deeds on his back and then with his misdeeds on his back. (Tafsir Ibn Kathir )
As a conclusion, we are certainly sure and completely believe in the existence and the reality of “mizan”; however we do not exactly know how the deeds will be weighed and how the nature of the mizan is. Kaynak: http://askaquestionto.us - About Mizan
