             The description of the purpose of our creation in the Quran is like a test,
             whose results will determine our place in the life hereafter. Our life on this
             earth is like an exam in which we study hard and get good grades in order to go
             to the best college. Similarly, we do good deeds on the earth in order to have
             good records to show on the Day of Judgment. We are sent on this earth for a

             states, "We created death and life that we may test which of you is best in
             conduct" (Ali 51:56) therefore judgment is inevitable. The Resurrection is
             referred by several names and expressions in the Quran, each signifying a
             special condition and system ascribed to it. For example, it is called "the day
             of resurrection," "the day of assembl
