On the Day of reckoning, the most precious valuables one possesses are the righteous deeds purely done to earn the good pleasure of Allah. However, disbelievers have never striven for this treasure, which would bring them eternal salvation. Not a single good deed or blessing they have to present to Allah on that day. Having no faith in Allah, all their righteous efforts will have been wasted. Allah (swt) sates this fact as follows: “Say, shall I inform you of the greatest losers in their actions? People whose efforts in the life of the world are misguided while they suppose that they are doing good. Those are the people who reject their Lord’s signs and the meeting with Him. Their actions will come to nothing and, on the Day of Rising, We will not assign them any weight.” (Al-Kahf: 103-105)

Allah (swt) says: “The trumpet is blown and those in the heavens and those in the earth swoon away, except those Allah wills. Then it is blown a second time and at once they stand upright, looking on. And the earth shines with the pure light of its Lord; the Book is put in place; the Prophets and witnesses are brought; it is decided between them with the truth; and they are not wronged. Every self is repaid in full for what it did. He knows best what they are doing.” (Az-Zumar: 68 - 70)

Allah (SWT) said: “But recite unto them with truth the tale of two sons of Adam, how they offered each sacrifice, and it was accepted from the one of them and it was not accepted from the other. (The one) said: I will sure kill you. (The other) answered: Allah accepts only from those who ward off (evil).” (Al-Maidah: 27).
