But ask those who kept count.”He (Allah) will say, “You only remained for a little while, if only you knew.Did you then think that We had created you without purpose, and that you would never be returned to Us?” Quran 23:112~115

قٰلَ كَمۡ لَبِثۡتُمۡ فِى الۡاَرۡضِ عَدَدَ سِنِيۡنَ‏ 

قَالُوۡا لَبِثۡنَا يَوۡمًا اَوۡ بَعۡضَ يَوۡمٍ فَسۡــَٔـلِ الۡعَآدِّيۡنَ‏ 

قٰلَ اِنۡ لَّبِثۡـتُمۡ اِلَّا قَلِيۡلًا لَّوۡ اَنَّكُمۡ كُنۡتُمۡ تَعۡلَمُوۡنَ‏ 

اَفَحَسِبۡتُمۡ اَنَّمَا خَلَقۡنٰكُمۡ عَبَثًا وَّاَنَّكُمۡ اِلَيۡنَا لَا تُرۡجَعُوۡنَ
In this Surah people are invited to accept and follow the Prophet. This is the central theme of the Surah. It speaks about the character of true believers and assures that they will be the real successful people. It draws attention to various stages of human creation, to many other universal signs. Then it takes some of the stories of other prophets and tells us that they also preached the same message.
(خدا) پوچھے گا کہ تم زمین میں کتنے برس رہے؟ 

وہ کہیں گے کہ ہم ایک روز یا ایک روز سے بھی کم رہے تھے، شمار کرنے والوں سے پوچھ لیجیئے 

(خدا) فرمائے گا کہ (وہاں) تم (بہت ہی) کم رہے۔ 
کاش تم جانتے ہوتے 
کیا تم یہ خیال کرتے ہو کہ ہم نے تم کو بےفائدہ پیدا کیا ہے اور یہ تم ہماری طرف لوٹ کر نہیں آؤ گے؟
The character of the Believers. Various stages of human creation and Allah’s signs in the universe.
The Message of Prophet Noah, his people’s response and then the flood.
Generations were raised after Prophet Noah. Many prophets were sent among them. Then came Prophet Moses and Aaron and then came Jesus – peace be upon them all.
All prophets are one Ummah and preached the same religion. Those who are affluent think that they are also the righteous people, but the righteous are only those who do the good deeds.
Everything in the heaven and earth belongs to Allah.
Prophet’s job is to continue presenting the message of Allah.
