salaam alaikum,

if your employer gives you his 60 dollars and tells:

a. either you use this money for your basic needs and buy me a gift from the rest of money and then i will give you blank cheque. you will be able to buy whatever you like.

b. or use this money completely for youself and then i will punish you.

what will you do?

Allah - Most Merciful, Most Forgiving, Most Kind, Most Rich - has given us this life (maybe of 60 years). if we worship Him and obey Him and use our time in His remembrance, He will bless us with Paradise for eternity (to enjoy whtever we like) otherwise suffering in Hell is truly painful.

may Allah forgive us and have mercy on us. Ameen

The point is that the post compares the $60 cheque to the 60 years (or thereabouts) which God gives us in this earthly life.

According to Islam, we can either spend it carefully, just meeting our simple needs and offering the rest back to our employer (meaning God) as a gift and being rewarded with a blank cheque (meaning eternal life in jannah); or to spend it on whatever we like, but then receive punishment for having done so.

Perhaps your question 'Why would an employer do that?' is an interesting one.
Perhaps the question should be 'Why would God do that?'
