Look at these ayahs:
Verse 22: 47 translates as:
"and surely a day of your Lord is like a thousand years of your reckoning"
Verse 32: 5 translates as:
"He decides all affairs from the heavens to the earth then these [affairs] go up to Him in a day, the length of which is a thousand years of your reckoning."
Allah says that to give us an idea and comprehendable concept to grasp as to what time is to Allah compared to us. Of course when we're all dead and the Hereafter has come then what need is there for time? We all will be in a "time" of infinity so seems like a time is nothing more than a measurement tool for us to use while in this duniya. just my thoughts....
