The choice is ours.

In the name of Allah.

يَوۡمَ يَتَذَكَّرُ ٱلۡإِنسَـٰنُ مَا سَعَىٰ (٣٥) وَبُرِّزَتِ ٱلۡجَحِيمُ لِمَن يَرَىٰ (٣٦) فَأَمَّا مَن طَغَىٰ (٣٧) وَءَاثَرَ ٱلۡحَيَوٰةَ ٱلدُّنۡيَا (٣٨) فَإِنَّ ٱلۡجَحِيمَ هِىَ ٱلۡمَأۡوَىٰ (٣٩) وَأَمَّا مَنۡ خَافَ مَقَامَ رَبِّهِۦ وَنَهَى ٱلنَّفۡسَ عَنِ ٱلۡهَوَىٰ (٤٠) فَإِنَّ ٱلۡجَنَّةَ هِىَ ٱلۡمَأۡوَىٰ (٤١)

The day when man shall remember all that he strove for, and Hell-fire shall be placed in full view for him who sees. Then, for such as had transgressed all bounds, and had preferred the life of this world, the abode will be Hell-fire; and for such as had entertained the fear of standing before their Lord and had restrained their sould from lower desires, their abode will be the Garden. [An0Nazi’at: 35]

Let us remember:

We cannot get to the high ground by taking the low road. We cannot win our Creator’s pleasure by disobeying Him. We cannot enter paradise by being ambivalent about it. The clash between the two lifestyles here is actually the clash between two afterlives. And the choice is ours.
