This World in Comparison to the Aakhirah

Rasoolullah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:
“Wallah! This world in comparison to the Aakhirah is like any of you putting his finger in the sea.
See what does it [the finger] bring back!” (Mishkaat, Kitaabur Riqaaq)
Comment: This world with its pleasures and time in comparison to the pleasures and time of the Aakhirah is like the moistness left on a finger after dipping it in the ocean. The moistness is utterly inferior and insignificant in relation to the countless of litres of water in the ocean.
Love of the Dunya
Allah Ta’aala says: “The worldly life is nothing but substance of deception.” Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “The world is the prison of the Mu’min and the paradise of the Kaafir.” All things which give pleasure here to the nafs without being of any merit in the Aakhirah is termed dunya.

It is narrated in Hadeeth that: “If the value of the world was equal to that of the wing of a mosquito by Allah, He would not have allowed any kaafir even a drink of water from it. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) described the world in the following similitude: “What relationship with the world have I?

Hubb-e-Jah (Love for fame)
Allah Ta’aala says: “That (abode) which is Daarul Aakhirah, We will reserve it for those who do not desire greatness on earth nor (do they desire) strife. And, the ultimate success is for the pious.”
Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Two hungry wolves let loose in a flock of sheep do not cause as much harm as the harm to a man’s Deen wrought by his greed for wealth and fame.”
