And regarding Accountability on the Day of Reckoning, the Quran poses the question:
[Al-Qur’an 75:36, translator: Yusuf Ali] Does man think that he will be left uncontrolled, (without purpose)?
This temporal life has been granted so that the Believers as a mercy, an opportunity to escape punishment and earn Allah's forgiveness.
[Al-Qur’an 11:119, translator: Shakir] And if your Lord (had) willed surely He (could) have made the mankind one community, but not they will cease to differ. Except those on whom your Lord has mercy; and for this did He create them; and the word of your Lord is fulfilled: Certainly I will fill hell with the jinn and the men, all together.
The characteristics of the believers (al-Mominoon) are described in Surah al-Mominoon
