Judgment Day and the End Times: Yawm ad-Din

Lecture no. 7 from the course: Introduction to the Qur’an

Judgment Day and the End Times: Yawm ad-Din

Taught by Professor Martyn Oliver | 25 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Did Dante Alighieri model his Divine Comedy after the Qur’anic descriptions of heaven and hell? In this lecture, we will delve into the regional history; the co-existing theologies; and finally, the actual Qur’anic depictions of both a beautiful garden of endless, sensual bliss and, for the less deserving, a fiery pit of eternal torment.
