Is the human being able to fulfill all the worldly wishes?

SHAFAQNA – In a letter to his eldest son, Imam Hassan Mojtaba (AS), Imam Ali (AS) wrote: Know for certain that you will not be able to fulfill all your wishes, and you will not live more than the time of the death, and you are moving on the same path of the one who travelled before you. Therefore, be calm about attaining the world (worldly things), and use what you attain well, because extreme efforts to gather worldly wealth and properties may lead to them being plundered. So, every hard working person will not get to what he/she wishes [1].
