Closest to God

God Almighty has told us about those who are closest to Him in the Last
Day when our reward or punishment will be eternal. In 4:172, God talked
about the Angels who are closest to Him. In Suras 56 and 83, God told us
about the human beings who will be the closest to Him. And this will be
the ultimate Paradise and bliss.

We read in Sura 56:
“When the inevitable comes to pass. Nothing can stop it from happening. It
will lower some and raise others. The earth will be shaken up. The
mountains will be wiped out. As if they never existed. YOU WILL BE
STRATIFIED into three kinds. Those who deserve bliss will be in bliss.
Those who deserve misery will be in misery. Then there is the ELITE OF THE
ELITE. They are those who will be closest (To God). In the gardens of
bliss. Many from the first generations. FEW from the later generations.”
56:1-14 Reflect on this expression, FEW FROM THE LATER GENERATION.

But where-else does God talk about those CLOSEST TO HIM. In 83:21

“Indeed the book of the righteous will be in ‘Elleyyeen. Do you know what
CLOSE TO ME. The righteous have deserved bliss.” 18-22.

Only those who are the closest to God will be witnessing this numerically
structured book. Now we know why some people can not see the miracle.
How can this numerically structured book be blessing for the righteous and
disaster for the disbelievrs and hypocrites is explained in 74:31

“We appointed angels to be guardians of Hell, and we assigned their number
(Eddatahum) (19)
(1) to disturb the disbelievers.
(2) to convince the Christians and Jews (that this is a divine scripture),
(3) to strengthen the faith of the faithful,
(4) to remove all the traces of doubt from the hearts of the Christians,
Jews as well as the believers, and (5) to expose those who harbor doubt in
their hearts, and the disbelievrs; they will say, “What did God mean by
this allegory?
God thus sends astray whomever He wills, and guides whomever He wills.
NONE KNOWS the soldiers of your Lord except He. THIS IS A REMINDER FOR THE
PEOPLE. ‘ 74:31
