The Record of Your Life: When the Truth Is Revealed To You.

Something mysterious and fascinating about the Quran is this partnership we have with God. God is closer to our jugular vein as expressed in the Quran.
50:16
 And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein.
Yet, God is also this powerful source of creation of the entire universe and absolute truth, that is far from a human being’s grasp.  So how can God be closer to us than our jugular vein, and far above us in Heaven on a throne?
When the Quran talks about “records” or the evil people will know what they have done in the end…it actually talks about how the pure state of consciousness that you have inside will be free to judge how well you lived your life. No matter if a soul has pushed down and repressed the wrong they have done, it all comes out in the end when you are no longer your “ego” and your individual personality.
17:13
And every man’s augury have We fastened to his own neck, and We shall bring forth for him on the Day of Resurrection a book which he will find wide open.
Notice how it says the “book” which will be wide open? This is the mind that will be laid open for you to reflect back on and for God to see. Your mind will be able to be read like a book and the deeds you have done will be carried inside your memory or subconscious.
God is this energy behind that consciousness that brings forth the truth to you. But there is judgement no matter if people don’t want to believe it or not, and the judger is YOU with God. The judgement is not outside your own self.
17:14
[It will be said], “Read your record. Sufficient is yourself against you this Day as accountant.”
So many atheists and people on non faith today do not want to believe in God, because they don’t want to believe there are consequences to their life actions. I am sorry to say, but that is because they are looking at the consequences all wrong. It will not be an outside God punishing you for your deeds with a lighting rod, it will be your pure soul that is ALREADY connected to God that will punish yourself because you have not learned what you were meant to before coming back to God. As long as this punishment goes on, I can not tell, that part remains unknown. But it seems that the punishment is connected to viewing the truth and discovering it for yourself when God shows you your record.
The “fire” and “hell” experienced will be within your own soul once you learn the truth of what you have done to others or not done for others. Guilt is a torment on the soul, and this is what Hell will be.
So live life in full control of your Book of Life. Live without regrets and with a clear conscious. Don’t worry what others are doing, they all have their own soul journeys to go on. Worry about your own soul, because when that time comes.. your mind will be laid out in front of you and in order to experience Heaven, you will need to like what you see.

Surah Yunus: Chapter 10 (line 100-109) Jonah

100. No soul can believe except by God’s leave; and He lays disgrace upon those who refuse to understand.

101. Say, “Look at what is in the heavens and the earth.” But signs and warnings are of no avail for people who do not believe.

102. Do they expect anything but the likes of the days of those who passed away before them? Say, “Then wait, I will be waiting with you.”

103. Then We save Our messengers and those who believe. It is binding on Us to save the believers.

104. Say, “O people, if you are in doubt about my religion-I do not serve those you serve apart from God. But I serve God, the one who will terminate your lives. And I was commanded to be of the believers.”

105. And dedicate yourself to the true religion-a monotheist-and never be of the polytheists.

106. And do not call, apart from God, on what neither benefits you nor harms you. If you do, you are then one of the wrongdoers.

107. If God afflicts you with harm, none can remove it except He. And if He wants good for you, none can repel His grace. He makes it reach whomever He wills of His servants. He is the Forgiver, the Merciful.

108. Say, “O people, the truth has come to you from your Lord. Whoever accepts guidance is guided for his own soul; and whoever strays only strays to its detriment. I am not a guardian over you.”

109. And follow what is revealed to you, and be patient until God issues His judgment, for He is the Best of judges.

My interpretation:

Muhammad  is told to tell the people the same events that have happened in the past to people will happen now to his people. The believers and servants of God will be saved from the penalties of wrong doings just as they have been in the past.

Muhammad is to tell the people that only God can save them when they are in trouble and lost. They need to be patient for rewards and punishments of those  who will receive them.

Muhammad is just a messenger and so in line 108, Gabriel is telling Muhammad to let the people know that they must ALL do the work themselves to seek paradise from the Lord of the World. Muhammad is not a substitute for their soul nor can he save them. This is a huge difference from the churches that put the priests in power to save people. This was wrongful teaching, and Islam is trying to correct this. Muhammad is not put in a position of power over people. He is only a guide to help others receive the same messages he was given.

Only God has the power of saving people, and this comes to those who are humble enough to ask for help and guidance from above.

Muhammad and the other older messengers like Jonah, only try to lead the way, it is up to the people if they follow.
