Hātim [al-Assam] رحمه الله said:

“I looked at the creation and realised that every person has something which is beloved to him, but when that person reaches his grave, his beloved would be separated from him.

Therefore I made the most beloved thing to me my righteous deeds, so they may be with me in my grave.”

Mukhtasar Minhāj al-Qāsideen 28 | Ibn al-Jawzi رحمه الله

وَالْآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ وَأَبْقَى – سورة الأعلى

And the Hereafter is better for you than the first [life]. – Surah Al A’laa
