3- Not only humans but all other things shall be destroyed before the day of judgment.
4- After death, every human shall get their reward. i.e. good or bad.
5- Both life and death are according to the will of Allah.


The basic belief of a Muslim about Allah is that, He has the ultimate and eternal power and He has sent down many messengers to the earth for the guidance of mankind.

Muslims have the faith that He is responsible for their every deed, and according to their deeds, they will get the rewards, i.e., heaven or hellfire. May Allah make us true followers of Islam.
