What is the daily warning to the human beings?

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Imam Baqir (AS) who said: There is an announcer/caller who announces every day: O’ the child of Adam, be born for dying; accumulate/collect to be annihilated; build for destruction [1]. One obvious fact which people seem to neglect is that for every birth, there is eventually a death. During the life time, human beings get into a lot of trouble to collect money, valuable objects and other things, and these are annihilated later on. It is the same with building houses, towers, palaces; these are also prone to destruction. This narration wants to remind people that nothing and no one lasts for ever. Therefore, it is important to reduce attachment to the materials of this world, and instead pay more attention to the life of the hereafter.
