Assalam alaikum,
In the Holy Qur'an, we read it that Allahu Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala says:--

"What! did you think that We created you only for sport,
and that you would not be returned to Us?" (al-Mumineen, 115)

"What, does man reckon he shall be left to roam at will?" (al-Qiyama, 36)

These 2 Noble Ayats remind us all to get our acts together and call ourselves to account before the Divine Judgement cathes up with us. In this regard, the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:- "A mindful person is he who takes his lower self [ego] under control, and erforms good deeds for the world to come. A foolish person is the one who expects something good from the Almighty in vain, while following the desires of his lower self." [Tirmidhi, Qiyamah 25; Ibn Majah, Zuhd 31].
