Qiyama is the belief in eternal life, also known as Resurrection. It emphasises the belief in the importance of accountability and God consciousness in everything Muslims do. It is for this reason that there are many descriptions of this day in the Qur’an and why it is considered one of the articles of faith that makes someone a Muslim. The Day of Judgment has more than one name, including the Day of Accountability, the Day of Resurrection, the Hour, and the Last Day.
Our happiness on this earth depends on this belief as it reminds us of the consequence of our actions. We therefore realise that our deeds, behaviour, thoughts, words and morals from the most important to the most insignificant have a beginning and an end just like human life. They do not end after the the end of life on earth but remain to be accounted on the last day.This is why belief in Qiyama is considered an essential
requirement for happiness (contentment).
