How shall People come out of Their Graves


Question :
How shall people come out of their graves on the Day of resurrection? And who will be the first to be dressed?

Answer :
Allah, Glorious is He, will resurrect man on the Day of Resurrection by reconstructing him from his tail bone. People will grow as perfect creatures just as plants grow from seeds, and as palm trees from from date stones. They will emerge from their graves barefooted, naked, and uncircumcised. They will rush forth like spread out locusts, or dispersed butterflies, and will not miss the way to the Assembly Land. In face they will know their way to it better than a wild pigeon knows its way to its nest, as they are racing to a target.
The first upon whom the earth will crack open is our Prophet Muhammad (Piece Be Upon Him). He will be the first to regain consciousness. As for the first to be dressed after Resurrection is Khalilur-Rehman (the beloved on of the Merciful) may Allah exalt his mention, and render him safe from evil. honor will overtake mankind to the point even Prophet will say on that Day: " Myself , myself". He who reads the Verses that deal with Resurrection in the Surahs Al-Qamar, Al -Ma'arij and Al-Qari'ah, and the like will have more information about that great event.
It is authentically reported in both Bukhari and Muslim, that the Prophet (Piece Be Upon Him) said:
You shall be summoned barefooted, naked and Uncircumcised.
"You shall be summoned barefooted, naked and Uncircumcised."
Sahih Bukhari no. 3349. and Sahih Muslim no. 2860.
Then he read and said:
As we began the creation, so shall We repeat it, a promise binding upon Us. We shall certainly fulfill it.
"As we began the creation, so shall We repeat it, a promise binding upon Us. We shall certainly fulfill it."
Al-Anbiya' 21:104.
"The first to be dressed on the Day of Resurrection is Ibrahim. While a group of my Ummah will be Snatched away to the left side, and I would call out: My followers!' It will be said: 'They apostatized after you left them,' And I then will say as the good worshiper ('Isa) said:"
And I was a witness over them as long as I remained with them, but when you collected me, You were the Watcher over them, and You are the witness over everything. If you punish them, they are Your worshipers; and if You forgive them, You are the Mighty, the wise.
"And I was a witness over them as long as I remained with them, but when you collected me, You were the Watcher over them, and You are the witness over everything. If you punish them, they are Your worshipers; and if You forgive them, You are the Mighty, the wise."
Al-Ma'idah 5: 117-118.
It is also authentically reported that Prophet (Piece Be Upon Him) said:
Mankind will be shocked to swoon on the Day of Resurrection, I will be The First Upon whom the ground will crack open.
"Mankind will be shocked to swoon on the Day of Resurrection, I will be The First Upon whom the ground will crack open."
Al-Bukhari no. 2412.
It is also authentically reported that the Prophet (Piece Be Upon Him) said:
I will be the first to regain consciousness.
"I will be the first to regain consciousness."
Al-Bukhari no. 4638.
You may get further detail about the above two traditions from the book Al-Aqidah At-Tahawiyah when Imam At Tahawi talks about the conditions of people on the Day of Resurrection.
