Resurrection and reviving dead countryside

فارسی English 1987 Views |

In many of the Koranic verses, reviving the earth in spring is likened to reviving the dead in Resurrection Day:

1- He is the one who sends winds to announce His mercy directly so that whenever they life up heavy clouds, We drive them along to a dead countryside and send down water from them, and thus we bring forth every kind of fruit. Thus we bring forth the dead too so you may bear this in mind. (7:57).

2- We have sent down blessed water from the sky and We grew gardens with it as well as grain to be harvested and soaring palms which have compact clusters as sustenance for worshippers. We have revived dead countryside with it, thus will (you) reappearance be. (50:9-11)
