فَكَيْفَ إِذَا جَمَعْنَاهُمْ لِيَوْمٍ لاَّ رَيْبَ فِيهِ وَوُفِّيَتْ كُلُّ نَفْسٍ مَّا كَسَبَتْ وَهُمْ لاَ يُظْلَمُونَ
-Âl ‘Imrân ( آل عمران )

Al Qushairi Tafsir

But how will it be when We gather them for a day of which there is no doubt, and every soul shall be paid in full what it has earned, and they shall not be wronged?
This address is remarkable because by it He gives information about the imposing grandeur and intensity of the [Day of Gathering], at which point the intellects [of those who turned away] will be perplexed, their innermost selves astonished, their pretensions cut off, their hearts torn from their hidden places, and [their souls] will rise to their collar bones. Then there will be what will meet them from the reckoning and censure (al-ḥisāb wa-l- ʿitāb), the torment and punishment (al-ʿadhāb wa-l-ʿiqāb), and the lack of honoring and approval (ʿadam al-ikrām wa-l-ījāb), etc.
The resurrection of the disbelievers will take place on the Day of Gathering, while the resurrection of the lovers takes place in the present moment; to explain this fully would take a long time.
