Translation

What is the life of this world but amusement and play? but verily the Home in the Hereafter,- that is life indeed, if they but knew.

Tafsir

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.
