Sura 36
Aya 32
وَإِن كُلٌّ لَمّا جَميعٌ لَدَينا مُحضَرونَ

Ali Unal

Instead, every generation, all without exception, will be arraigned before us (for judgment).1
  • The last two verses decisively reject any doctrine or assertion, such as reincarnation, that claims sinful people will continue to return to the world in new, different bodies until they have purified their souls. Instead of returning, the verses explicitly state that they will be brought before God to be judged. The verses also reject the Shi’ite doctrine of raj’ah, which asserts that some oppressive people – especially those who oppressed the members of the Messenger’s household – and their victims will be returned to the world before the end of time so that the latter can take vengeance on their oppressors.
