Judaism encourages believers to account for duties ordered by God. Roman Catholicism has developed a system of accounting for souls, sacraments and sins as well as having the first international reporting standards.

Once merged, these accounts summarise how the faithful believer honoured the five pillars of Islam. Thence, their honouring is recorded as To God balancing faith (Rodinson 1966; Torrey 1967). In case of imbalance between commandments and actual conduct, retributions are expected in the next life (Hell), which reads as follows (Fig. 3): As salvation can be obtained through acts, the angel must record other daily events and their impact on Allah’s Creations (Gambling and Karim 1991; Murata and Chittik 1994; Rodinson 1966).
