As-Salaam alaikum,

Let us, for a moment, consider 2 verses/ayats from the Hoy Qur’an as follows:—

  “WHAT! DID YOU THINK THAT WE CREATED YOU ONLY FOR SPORT,
  AND THAT YOU WOULD NOT BE RETURNED TO US?” (al-Mumineen, 115)


  “WHAT, DOES MAN RECKON HE SHALL BE LEFT TO ROAM AT WILL”? (al-Qiyama, 36)

These 2 Noble ayats of the Qur’an 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)
