Why the world must not be the target?

SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali (AS) said: O’ people, fear God, no one has been created in vain, in order to engage in games. And no one has been left to himself/herself, in order to engage in useless acts. And the world which seems nice in the eyes will not be a replacement for the hereafter which some consider it as ugly. And the arrogant who reaches the highest positions in the world, is not like the one who has been given the least of portions in the hereafter (in another words; the arrogant one in the world will not have a share of anything useful at all in the hereafter) [1].

[1] Nahjul Balaghah, Wisdom 370.
