Is this world amusing?

SHAFAQNA – Ayah 64 of Surah Al-Ankabut says: “What is the life of this world but amusement and play? Verily, the home in the hereafter is the real life indeed, if they but knew.” As indicated in the holy Quran, the real life will be in the hereafter; a place where there are no sorrow, grief, pain or suffering; a place where there are no limits to blessings and enjoyments (for the righteous ones).

Can the life of this world be compared with the life in the hereafter? And can a wise person rely on the life of this world? It is narrated from Imam Ali (AS) who said: It is foolish to rely on this world after observing the changes which take place in it [1].
