Seek suitable place in the hereafter with your share in this world

SHARE

SHAFAQNA – Allah (SWT) mentioned in Ayah 77 of Surah Al-Qasas: “Seek a place in the hereafter with what God has given to you and do not forget your share in this world. Act kindly, just as Allah (SWT) has treated you kindly. Do not aim to cause mischief on earth; God does not like mischief makers.” Therefore, if the world is the target for human being, it becomes a way of pleasure and amusement which will make human being dependent on itself as well as to neglect the hereafter.

This type of attention towards the world is disapproved. But if the world is used as a tool to seek a suitable place in the hereafter, this is indeed a proper way of utilising the world. Imam Baqer (AS) describes such a world as the helper to build the place of prosperity in the hereafter. Imam Baqer (AS) said: What a good helper is this world for the hereafter [1].
