The Believer will Never be Victorious Except with Having Fear for the Day of Accounting


“And the believer will never be victorious except with having fear for the day he will be accounted for. For verily if he is certain that Allah will bring him to account then he will work for the next life. As it comes in the statement of the Most-High:

{وَاسْتَعِينُواْ بِالصَّبْرِ وَالصَّلاَةِ وَإِنَّهَا لَكَبِيرَةٌ إِلاَّ عَلَى الْخَاشِعِينَ • الَّذِينَ يَظُنُّونَ أَنَّهُم مُّلاَقُوا رَبِّهِمْ وَأَنَّهُمْ إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ} [البقرة: ٤٥-٤٦]

That which translates as:

{And seek help through patience and prayer, and indeed, it is difficult except for the humbly submissive [to Allah ].۝
Who are certain that they will meet their Lord and that they will return to Him.} [Baqarah: 45-46]

Which is the opposite of the disbelievers, who after denying the day they will be recompensed and taken to account they disbelieved and did not perform righteous actions, so Allah says (about them):

{إِنَّهُمْ كَانُوا لَا يَرْجُونَ حِسَاباً} [النبأ:٢٧]

That which translates as:

{ Indeed, they were not expecting an account} [Naba:27]
