What Is The Meaning Of The Day Of Resurrection?

يَوۡمَ تَجِدُ كُلُّ نَفۡسٍ مَّا عَمِلَتۡ مِنۡ خَيۡرٍ مُّحۡضَرًا وَمَا عَمِلَتۡ مِن سُوٓءٍ تَوَدُّ لَوۡ أَنَّ بَيۡنَهَا وَبَيۡنَهُۥٓ أَمَدًۢا بَعِيدًاۗ وَيُحَذِّرُكُمُ ٱللَّهُ نَفۡسَهُۥۗ وَٱللَّهُ رَءُوفٌۢ بِٱلۡعِبَادِ
The Day every soul will find what it has done of good present [before it] and what it has done of evil, it will wish that between itself and that [evil] was a great distance. And Allah warns you of Himself, and Allah is Kind to [His] servants."
يَوْمَ تَجِدُ كُلُّ نَفْسٍ مَّا عَمِلَتْ مِنْ خَيْرٍ مُّحْضَرًا

On the Day when every person will be confronted with all the good he has done, 

meaning, on the Day of Resurrection, Allah brings the good and evil deeds before the servant, just as He said,

يُنَبَّأُ الاِنسَـنُ يَوْمَيِذِ بِمَا قَدَّمَ وَأَخَّرَ 

On that Day man will be informed of what he sent forward, and what he left behind. (75:13)

When the servant sees his good deeds, he becomes happy and delighted. When he sees the evil deeds he committed, he becomes sad and angry. Then he will wish that he could disown his evil work and that a long distance separated it from him. He will also say to the devil who used to accompany him in this life, and who used to encourage him to do evil;

يلَيْتَ بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَكَ بُعْدَ الْمَشْرِقَيْنِ فَبِيْسَ الْقَرِينُ

"Would that between me and you were the distance of the two easts ـ a horrible companion (indeed)! (43:38)
وَمَا عَمِلَتْ مِن سُوَءٍ تَوَدُّ لَوْ أَنَّ بَيْنَهَا وَبَيْنَهُ أَمَدًا بَعِيدًا

and all the evil he has done, he will wish that there were a great distance between him and his evil.

Allah then says; while threatening and warning,
وَيُحَذِّرُكُمُ اللّهُ نَفْسَهُ

And Allah warns you against Himself,

meaning, He warns you against His punishment.

Allah then said, while bringing hope to His servants, so that they do not despair from His mercy or feel hopeless of His kindness,
وَاللّهُ رَوُوفُ بِالْعِبَادِ

And Allah is full of kindness with the servants. 

Al-Hasan Al-Basri said,

"Allah is so kind with them that He warns them against Himself." Others commented, "He is merciful with His creation and likes for them to remain on His straight path and chosen religion, and to follow His honorable Messenger.

All praise is due to Allah,we ask Him to let us die in the path of Qur'an and Sunnah.
