True Promise of Paradise
Allah Most High say: "But you prefer the life of this lower world, even though the hereafter is better and more lasting".
Indeed, most people - even the devout - spend far more time thinking of all the details of their day to day dealings with the dunya. But if we understood properly how matters truly stand for every human being, we would give far more thought to that which awaits us in our graves and when we arise from them to take our places, be it unimaginable bliss or unspeakable torment, will be with us forever.
