It was asked from Hazrat Ali (as): How should a person take account of himself?
Hazrat Ali (as) replied:
When a person ends his day, then he should turn towards himself and say ‘O self! This day that has passed will not return. Allah (SWT) will ask you about how you wasted your day. He will ask you about the actions you performed, whether you remembered Him and praised Him? Whether you fulfilled a right of your fellow believer? Did you remove a difficulty that befell upon a believer? Did you protect his children in his absence? Did you safeguard his rights after his death? Did you – on account of your position – prevent anyone from backbiting your believing brother? Did you help any Muslim throughout the day?
