Books- The Constituents of the Divine Assignment- 7th Constituent - Paragraph (1-6): Time
   
 
 
In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, Most Merciful  
 

 When man reflects on the creation of the heavens and the earth, he will reach, with his reason, the fact that this universe must be created by a Great Creator, Educator, Merciful, Disposer and Wise Deity. Moreover, man's reason will reach the fact that this Creator is Great in His Creations and Perfect in His Actions, and that this Divine Perfection entails that He should not leave His servants without introduction, explanation or Divine Method which contains orders, prohibitions, warnings, promises and menaces, and for that very reason Allah sent the Prophets, peace be upon them, as bearers of good news as well as of warning, and with them He sent the Scripture in truth. Hence, Allah sent Scriptures in which man finds all needed information that gets him acquainted with his Creator and Educator, which judges between people in matters wherein they differed and which shows man the reality of the worldly life and defines his mission in it.

 To make things easier for man in this worldly life, Allah bestowed upon His servant the constituents of the Divine Assignment, such as the universe, the mind, the Fitrah (human nature), the Divine Method, the lusts and the free choice, and they all exist on earth and take place throughout the lifep of man. Thus, man's lifetime is his capital in the worldly life, so if he spends it in purifying his soul, it will be the price he pays to enter Allah's Paradise. Allah says:

﴾Verily, the Muttaqun (pious - see V.2:2) will be in the midst of Gardens and Springs (in the Paradise)* Taking joy in the things which their Lord has given them* Verily, they were before this Muhsinun (good-doers - see V.2:112)* They used to sleep but little by night [invoking their Lord (Allah) and praying, with fear and hope]* And in the hours before dawn, they were (found) asking (Allah) for forgiveness* And in their properties there was the right of the beggar, and the Mahrum (the poor who does not ask the sh3er)﴿

[Adh-Dhariyat, 15-19]

 Also, Allah says:

﴾Then as for him who will be given his Record in his right hand will say: "Take, read my Record!* "Surely, I did believe that I shall meet my Account!"* So he shall be in a life, well-pleasing* In a lofty Paradise* The fruits in bunches whereof will be low and near at hand* Eat and drink at ease for that which you have sent on before you in days past!﴿

[Al-Haqqa, 19-24]
