The Assured Power of Speech

A person asked Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahmatullah):
"The scholars say on the day of judgement (Hereafter) the humans' limbs and organs will speak the way as tongue does. The sinners' limbs and organs will give evidence against them and tell Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) that they committed such and such sins with the help of them. Is that true?"

Hazrat Thanvi (Rahmatullah) said:
"Yes, it is."

The questioner:
"How will the limbs and organs speak without tongue?"

Hazrat Thanvi (Rahmatullah) answered:
"Listen to me carefully.Firstly, we must believe in what Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) and his prophet (Sallalahu Alaihe Wassalam) have said is true, whether we realize the fact or not. Secondly, ability of speech is neither the quality nor a characteristic of the tongue.It is a Allah-Given gift. If that is the case, why do the animal not speak, as they possess tongues. Moreover, among humans, there are some people who possess tongues and yet they can't speak as they are dumb.If someone asks that how will the limbs and organs speak without a tongue, we will answer: When the tongue can speak without tongue, the other limbs and organs can speak too, because the tongue is also a piece of flesh. The lord of the world who has given the tongue speaking faculty, will give the limbs and organs the speaking faculty too.It is obvious that speaking faculty is from Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala), it is not the quality of tongue. "

Hazrat Thanvi (Rahmatullah) went further and asked:
"Have you ever seen a radio or tape recorder?"

The questioner responded:
"Why not?"

Hazrat Thanvi (Rahmatullah) asked:
"Do radios and tape recorders have tongues?"


The questioner answered:
"No."

Hazrat Thanvi (Rahmatullah) asked:
"How do the radios and tape recorders speak without tongues?" If that is the case, the human limbs and organs will obviously speak in the hereafter.The questioner was satisfied and, thanked him for clearing the shadows of doubts he had in his mind.
