And they argue, “There is nothing beyond our worldly life. We die; others are born. And nothing destroys us but ˹the passage of˺ time.” Yet they have no knowledge ˹in support˺ of this ˹claim˺. They only speculate.And whenever Our clear revelations are recited to them, their only argument is to say: “Bring our forefathers back, if what you say is true!”Say, ˹O Prophet,˺ “˹It is˺ Allah ˹Who˺ gives you life, then causes you to die, then will gather you ˹all˺ on the Day of Judgment, about which there is no doubt. But most people do not know.”.Quran 45:24~26Surah al-Jathiyah (The Kneeling)
The Surah takes its name with the mention of kneeling in the Ayat,
وَتَرَىٰ كُلَّ أُمَّةٍ جَاثِيَةً ۚكُلُّ أُمَّةٍ تُدْعَىٰ إِلَىٰ كِتَابِهَا الْيَوْمَ تُجْزَوْنَ مَا كُنتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ
“And you will see every nation kneeling [from fear]. Every nation will be called to its record [and told],
“Today you will be recompensed for what you used to do.” (45:28).
There are 37 Ayat in this Surah.

وَقَالُوا۟ مَا هِیَ إِلَّا حَیَاتُنَا ٱلدُّنۡیَا نَمُوتُ وَنَحۡیَا وَمَا یُهۡلِكُنَاۤ إِلَّا ٱلدَّهۡرُۚ وَمَا لَهُم بِذَ ٰلِكَ مِنۡ عِلۡمٍۖ إِنۡ هُمۡ إِلَّا یَظُنُّونَ

وَإِذَا تُتۡلَىٰ عَلَیۡهِمۡ ءَایَـٰتُنَا بَیِّنَـٰتࣲ مَّا كَانَ حُجَّتَهُمۡ إِلَّاۤ أَن قَالُوا۟ ٱئۡتُوا۟ بِءَابَاۤىِٕنَاۤ إِن كُنتُمۡ صَـٰدِقِینَ

قُلِ ٱللَّهُ یُحۡیِیكُمۡ ثُمَّ یُمِیتُكُمۡ ثُمَّ یَجۡمَعُكُمۡ إِلَىٰ یَوۡمِ ٱلۡقِیَـٰمَةِ لَا رَیۡبَ فِیهِ وَلَـٰكِنَّ أَكۡثَرَ ٱلنَّاسِ لَا یَعۡلَمُونَ
The Surah warns those who deny the Divine truth.
It talks about human arrogance and sinfulness.
The judgment of Allah will cover all the people.
The nations will stand before him in the kneeling condition.
کہتے ہیں کہ ہماری زندگی 
تو صرف دنیا ہی کی ہے کہ 
(یہیں) مرتے اور جیتے ہیں 
ہمیں تو زمانہ مار دیتا ہے۔ 
ان کو اس کا کچھ علم نہیں۔ 
صرف ظن سے کام لیتے ہیں 
جب ان کے سامنے ہماری کھلی کھلی آیتیں پڑھی جاتی ہیں 
تو ان کی یہی حجت ہوتی ہے کہ 
اگر تم سچے ہو تو ہمارے باپ دادا کو 
(زندہ کر) لاؤ 

کہہ دو کہ خدا ہی تم کو جان بخشتا ہے 
پھر (وہی) تم کو موت دیتا ہے 
پھر تم کو قیامت کے روز 
جس (کے آنے) میں کچھ شک نہیں 
تم کو جمع کرے گا 
لیکن بہت سے لوگ نہیں جانتے
Allah’s signs are all over in the universe and in our own soul. Those who deny the revelation of God will see punishment of Allah.
Follow the clear path of truth.
Some people have made their desires their god. They also deny the Hereafter.
People will stand before Allah on their knees. Their record of deeds will be presented to them.
