The First Blow of the Horn and the Second Blow of the Horn
In the first section, chapters 69 and 70 of our book where we examined the scientific miracles, we mentioned the resurrection day and the blow of the horn. We learn from the Quran that the horn will be blown twice (The Throngs, 68). The first blow will announce the beginning of the end of the universe, and the second blow will announce the rising of the dead. 5 of the 10 uses of this blow indicate the first blow while the other 5 indicate the second blow. In the sura the Throngs, 68th verse where the two blows are mentioned, the word “sura” is used while describing the first blow but it is not used to describe the second blow, by this way the harmony of the words are kept in order. The verse is:
68- The horn is blown, whereupon everyone in the heavens and the earth is struck dead, except those whom God wills. Then it is blown again, whereupon they rise up, looking.
39. The Throngs, 68
