The Day Of judgment: Fair Game.

In Sura 89 God gives us the events of the day of Judgment in a movie like sequence: the earth that is pounded Then God comes with all glory with the angels rank upon rank. The hell will get in the face of man. He would remember that he should have done good for that day. It will be too late for those who did not remember this day now and get ready for it. For the righteous soul on the other hand, it comes with rest and satisfaction to meet the heaven that is made for her. I call it fair game with very good deal for us. You earn your eternity by doing good for few years (not for eternity).
89:21 Nay! When the earth is pounded to powder, كَلَّا إِذَا دُكَّتِ الْأَرْضُ دَكًّا دَكًّا
89:22 And thy Lord cometh, and His angels, rank upon rank, وَجَاء رَبُّكَ وَالْمَلَكُ صَفًّا صَفًّا
89:23 And Hell, that Day, is brought (face to face),- on that Day will man remember, but how will that remembrance profit him? وَجِيءَ يَوْمَئِذٍ بِجَهَنَّمَ يَوْمَئِذٍ يَتَذَكَّرُ الْإِنسَانُ وَأَنَّى لَهُ الذِّكْرَى
89:24 He will say: "Ah! Would that I had sent forth (good deeds) for (this) my (Future) Life!" يَقُولُ يَا لَيْتَنِي قَدَّمْتُ لِحَيَاتِي
89:25 For, that Day, His Chastisement will be such as none (else) can inflict, فَيَوْمَئِذٍ لَّا يُعَذِّبُ عَذَابَهُ أَحَدٌ
89:26 And His bonds will be such as none (other) can bind. وَلَا يُوثِقُ وَثَاقَهُ أَحَدٌ
89:27 (To the righteous soul will be said:) "O (thou) soul, in (complete) rest and satisfaction! يَا أَيَّتُهَا النَّفْسُ الْمُطْمَئِنَّةُ
89:28 "Come back thou to thy Lord,- well pleased (thyself), and well-pleasing unto Him! ارْجِعِي إِلَى رَبِّكِ رَاضِيَةً مَّرْضِيَّةً
89:29 "Enter thou, then, among My devotees! فَادْخُلِي فِي عِبَادِي
89:30 "Yea, enter thou My Heaven! وَادْخُلِي جَنَّتِي
