WHY BELIEVE IN THE LAST DAY COMES NEXT TO BELIEVE IN ALLAH IN THE QURAN?
We know that Last Day is a very important day mentioned in the Quran. The reason why it is so important is because of the reckoning of the Ins and the Jinns which will take place on this day after Resurrection. Finally both Ins and Jinn will enter the Paradise and the Hell-Fire according to their deeds.
So knowing about the Resurrection, Reckoning, Punishment in Hell-Fire and reward in Paradise encourages a believer to do good deeds. If a believer rejects the concept of Resurrection, Reckoning, Hell-Fire and Paradise on the Last Day then there is no reason for him/her to do good deeds.
