We all know what accountability means. We all understand that we will be held accountable on different levels.
When we are small we feel accountable but we might not realize the extent of that accountability. We realize that it is only going to be too our parents and we worry about what our parents are going to say.
When we get older we realize the link that we have with Allah. We also realize that the ultimate accountability is for and with Allah.
We might be employed or employ someone and there is a sense of accountability towards them. We have to take care of this because when we waste time at work we are not deserving that salary.
However, what we know and what we should understand is that the ultimate account will be held on the Day of Judgement. Allah will place the scales of justice to weigh the right from the wrong.
