وَمَا هَـٰذِهِ ٱلْحَيَاةُ ٱلدُّنْيَآ إِلاَّ لَهْوٌ وَلَعِبٌ وَإِنَّ ٱلدَّارَ ٱلآخِرَةَ لَهِيَ ٱلْحَيَوَانُ لَوْ كَانُواْ يَعْلَمُونَ
٦٤
-Al-‘Ankabût ( العنكبوت )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And the life of this world is nothing but diversion and play, whereas closeness [to God] pertains to concern for the Hereafter, since the fruits thereof will be revealed in it. But surely the Abode of the Hereafter is indeed the [true] Life, if they only knew, this, [then] they would not prefer this world to it.
