That is (indeed) the True Day. Hence, whosoever wills, let him seek a residence (in Paradise) from his Creator (through his good deeds).
إِنَّآ أَنذَرۡنَٰكُمۡ عَذَابٗا قَرِيبٗا يَوۡمَ يَنظُرُ ٱلۡمَرۡءُ مَا قَدَّمَتۡ يَدَاهُ وَيَقُولُ ٱلۡكَافِرُ يَٰلَيۡتَنِي كُنتُ تُرَٰبَۢا40 40
Indeed, We have warned you about a torment nearby – the Day when man will see his deeds which he has sent forth and the disbeliever will say (that Day): “I wish I would have been (reduced to) dust.”.
