Should the human being worry more about the life in this world or the hereafter?

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Imam Kadhim/Kazim (AS) who one day was visiting a grave and said: It is appropriate that the human being by adopting piety does not get attached to a life which ends with death and the grave. And it is appropriate that the human being fear the conclusion of the everlasting life which starts like this (death is the start of a new everlasting life) [1]. It is also narrated from Imam Kazim (AS) who heard a man wishing to die, and Imam (AS) asked him: Is there any bond or relationship between you and God that due to that God should support you? That man replied: No. Then Imam Kazim (AS) asked: Do you have good deeds which you have sent beforehand and they are more than your sins? That man replied: No. Imam (AS) said: In this case when you wish to die and ask for death, in fact you wish for everlasting destruction [2].
