Al Furqan says
6:44 When they forgot the reminder given to them, We opened for them the gates of all (good) things until just as they were enjoying Our gifts, suddenly We called them to account. Then, they were plunged in despair. [16:112]
Surah At-Takaathur beautifully throws light on this state affairs
102:1 The relentless greed of material gains distracts you (from the real purpose of life). [57:20, 83:26]
102:2 Until you go down to your graves.
102:3 Nay! But you will come to know!
102:4 Again, Nay! You will come to know.
102:5 Nay, only if you could have certain knowledge.
102:6 You would see it now, the Insurmountable Barrier (in the way of your personal development). [29:54, 79:36, 82:16]
102:7 Finally, you will see it with sure vision.
102:8 Then, on that Day you will be questioned what you did with the boon of life. [21:13]
The only way out is
13:28 Those who attain faith through reason, their hearts find rest in the practical remembrance of God, that is, in following His commands. Remembering God (by following His commands) ensures tranquility in the hearts.
