The fear I felt
Waking up one morning
To see a round figure rise from the west
(Ah!) Is it really happening?
The thought tore through me like a tornado
To the verse, my heart went
Didn’t you hear the verse?
That Allah (SWT) will continue to accept repentance
Until the sun rises from the west
Bearing one of the signs of the last day
And then I turned to the EAST
To see the sun rising from there
As clear as day
The relief I felt
It had been the moon still going in
Are you not afraid?
What would be the feeling?
To see the sun rising from the west
When no repentance shall be accepted
Would you then not hasten?
To seek forgiveness today
 Sûrat Al-Anʿâm, 6:158. This âyah does not mention the rising of the sun from the west. However the âyah does indicate that no tawba is accepted after the materialization of the major signs of God, heralding the end of time. As for Ḥadîth literature, there is in fact a ḥadîth in Ṣaḥiḥ Muslim (ḥadîth No. 2759) which shows that tawba will not be accepted after the sun rises from the west.
