The slaughtering of death on the day of Qiyamah

Question

Regarding the following Verse of Surah Naba, verse: 40:

‘Indeed, We have warned you of a near punishment on the Day when a man will observe what his hands have put forth and the disbeliever will say, “Oh, I wish that I were dust’.

 

I’ve heard that in the Akhirah, when all those who are to enter Jannah would have entered therein, Allah Ta’ala will call all of mankind and a ram will be killed to signify that there is no more death and those in Jannah will remain therein and those in Jahannam will remain therein forever. Then the disbelievers will say the above: ‘O! I wish that I were dust!’

A Surah would be revealed to Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) so we would learn [the details of the law from it], what is permissible, what is impermissible and learn what significant point there was in it, just as you yourselves know the Quran. [But now by Allah] I see even [grown] men reciting the whole of the Quran from the Opening to the end, but have no idea what it is telling them to do or warning them from committing, or what the significance of it is. [To them reciting it,] is like tossing someone a cheap date.”
