Plant seeds.

This world is the field of the Hereafter. He who does not plant here will not reap there. So plant seeds of a good life here that will yield a good harvest in the Hereafter.

Sayyidina Ali krw said:

“The likeness of this world and the Hereafter is that of the east and the west; the nearer you draw to the one, the farther you move from the other. They are like the two wives, when you please the one, you anger the other. And they are like two vessels, one empty and the other full; when you pour into the empty one, the other diminishes accordingly.

I found this world to be six things: That which is eaten, the best tasting is honey, and it is the secretion of an insect; that which is drunk, the best is water, and in this both the righteous and the depraved are equal; that which is smelled, the most fragrant is musk, and it is the blood of an animal; that which is worn, the softest is silk, and it is the weaving of a worm; that which is ridden, the worthiest is the mare, and it is that on whose back men are slain; those which one marries, it is but base fluid in base fluid. It is sufficient for you to know that although the woman adorns herself with the best she has, your desire for her is for the basest she has!”

Imam Hasan al-Basri, may God have mercy on him, said:

When love of this world enters the heart, fear of the Hereafter exits from it. Beware of worldly distractions, for no servant opens a door of this world without several doors of works of the Hereafter being shut before him.”

Ya Allah.. Take away the love of this dunya from our hearts Ya Rabb! :(
