Meaning of the name يوم الخلود for the Day of Judgement

Q: I read that a name for the Day of Judgement is يوم الخلود. Could you give some explanation please?

A: This is among the names of Qiyaamah. The word "khulood" can be used to mean forever or for something that is extremely long. In this case, Qiyaamah is called by this name due to it being extremely long.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
