The "Tenth Word" is a masterpiece of dialectical theology (kalam). As an exegesis of the Qur'an, 30:50* it demonstrates numerous  rational and empirical proofs for the possibility, necessity, and  existence of bodily resurrection and divine judgement in the Hereafter.* "Look,  then, at the signs of God’s mercy, how He restores the  earth to life after death: this same God is the one who will return  people to life after death - He has power over all things (Qur'an,  30:50)."Read and interpreted by Dr. Mustafa Tuna.For more on the Risale-i Nur, visit www.reflections-RN.org.
