Is total comfort possible in this world?

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Imam Sajjad (AS) who said: Those who go after wealth and accumulate possessions in this world, are looking for comfort and think the increase in wealth and property will bring greater comfort for them. Imam Sajjad (AS) added: They are making mistake because (total) comfort has not been created for people in this world [1].

This is a delicate point, and indicates that (total) comfort is only in paradise. Those who go after the world (wealth, properties, possessions, positions), want to find  (total) comfort in this world but they will not get to it. But those who try to find comfort in the hereafter, many of them find comfort in this world as well as the next. Delicate points of this narration are very beautiful.
