Then on the day of Judgement we will have no excuse for not changing as Allah will say that he gave us chance after chance and he waited for us to change and gave us so many opportunities but we did not take heed. So the abode for such a person will be the blazing fire.
Almighty Allah says:
They will cry out in Hell and say: “Our Lord, let us out so that we may act righteously, different from what we did before.” (They will be told): “Did we not grant you an age long enough for anyone to take heed if he had wanted to take heed? Besides, there came a Warner to you. So have a taste of the torment now. None may come to the help of the wrong-doers.” (35:37)
This Ayat is profound and should impact our hearts as we could be that person in the Ayat who was given chance after chance but did not take heed and died in such a state, and whilst being tortured in Hell we will cry out for the punishment to be lessened, but we will be asked that were we not given a long enough life and enough chances to make the necessary changes? So we will have no excuses!
The question we need to ask ourselves is: Are the short temporary fulfillment of our desires in this world worth such unimaginable incomprehensible agony, torment and torture? That's a decision we have to make for ourselves!
