In the Holy Qur'an, Allahu Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, says:--
"WHAT! DID YOU THINK THAT WE CREATED YOU ONLY FOR
SPORT, AND THAT YOU WOULD NOT BE RETURNED TO US?"
(Surat Mumineen, 115)
"WHAT, DOES MAN RECKON HE SHALL BE LEFT TO ROAM AT
WILL?" (Surat Qiyama, 36)
These 2 Noble Ayats remind us all to get our acts together and call ourselves to account before the Divine Judgement catches up with us. In this regard, the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi wasallam, said:--
"A mindful person is he who takes his lower self [ego]
under control, calls it to account and performs good
deeds for the world to come. A foolish person is the
one who expects something good from the Almighty in
vain, while following the desires of his lower self."
(Tirmidhi, Qiyamah 25; Ibn Majah, Zuhd, 31].
