Israfil will Blow the Trumpet
When God will intend to bring forth Resurrection, the first thing to happen will be the blowing of the Trumpet as described earlier. God of the Universe mentions this several times in the Holy Quran :
And the trumpet shall be blown, so all those that are in the heavens and all those that are in the earth shall moon, except such as Allah please; then it shall be blown again, then lo! they shall stand up awaiting. (39:68)
Quranic verses, traditions, and narrations show that there will be two blowings of the trumpet. First, when the trumpet will be blown all will die except those about whom God desires otherwise. Then the trumpet will be blown again which will cause all formers and latters to become alive. God says in the above quoted verse: "When the Trumpet will be blown all in the earth and the sky will be destroyed except those whom God may desire that they should not die. Then the trumpet will be blown for the second time when all the formers and the latters will become alive and it will be Resurrection and all will stand staring."
