  • What does bearing witness on the Day of Judgement require of us in this life?
    • Can we turn a blind eye to wrong-doing and injustice? 
    • What is our responsibility when we witness wrong-doing and injustice?
    • What if we cannot do anything to prevent or stop the wrong-doing and injustice? 
  • What does being witnessed on the Day of Judgement require of us in this life? (Review who and what testify for us on the Day of Judgement)
