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

good records to show on the Day of Judgment. We are sent on this earth for a
limited period of time, and by the end of time we will go back to our creator
(Day of Resurrection) and that will be the time when the test of our life will
be over, and we will get to know the result in the form of heaven or hell.
The Day of Resurrection is an event that concerns everything and all mankind;
it is an event that embodies the whole world. On this day the whole universe
will be destroyed and the dead people will be resurrected to stand in front of
God. This day will be the beginning of a life that will never end, and on this
day God will reward every person according to his or her good or evil deeds
