The problem of people is that they know that worldly life is a temporary stage of time, and that it ends with death. However, they prefer it to the Hereafter and choose its unpleasing and perishable bliss rather to Hereafter. Ali Ibn Abi Talib (May Allah honour his face) said:
“The world traveled while it was arranged and the Hereafter traveled while it was coming. Each one of them has sons, so be among the sons of the Hereafter and do not be among the children of the world. Today the work, no reckoning, and the reward tomorrow, and no work.”
 Sahih Al-Bukhari.
