Ayat 46 of Surat Kahfi of the Holy Qur'an (18:46) reads:--
"Wealth and children are the embellishment of worldly life, and the good things that
last (al-baqiyat- as-Salihat) are greater with your Lord and greater in expectation."
Material things are short-lived and temporary, but the "Good things that last" will remain and endure forever. That is, their reward will continue into the Hereafter, and the hereafter is far better and ever lasting.
Now, what are "the good things that last"? Let us go to the court of the Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, and find out.
Abu Sa'eed al-Khudri, may Allah be pleased with him, reported from the Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, that he said:--
"MAKE PLENTY OF GOOD THINGS THAT LAST (Al-Baqiyat Salihat). IT WAS SAID: AND WHAT ARE THEY, O MESSENGER
He said:-- "TAKBIR (Saying ALLAHU AKBAR), TAHLIL (Saying LA-ILAHA ILLALLAH), TAHMID (Saying ALHAMDULILLAH) and
Saying: LA-HAWLA WALA QUWWATA ILLA BILLAH." [Bukhari, Muslim and others].
