SHAFAQNA – According to the Quranic teaching, the lifetime of the human being in this world is very short but in this short period a person can build own paradise or hell by his/her deeds. Meaning, the human being will see the same deeds carried out in this world in the hereafter as described in Ayah 26 of Surah An-Nab’a, Ayah 180 of Surah Al-A’araaf and Ayah 23 of Surah Al-Fajr.
Imam Hassan Askari warned about this issue and said: Your lifetime is decreasing and the numbers of days are limited and can be counted; death will suddenly arrive, the one who cultivates good seeds will harvest happiness; and the one who cultivates bad seeds, will harvest regret. Whatever one cultivates is for him/her; the one who receives prosperity, God gives that to him/her, and the one who is saved from an evil, God saves him/her .
