Let us prepare ourselves (Surah 3, Al-E-Imran)
Every soul will taste of death. And you will be paid on the Day of Resurrection only that which you have fairly earned. Whoso is removed from the Fire and is made to enter paradise, he indeed is triumphant. The life of this world is but the comfort of illusion. (3: 185)
We need to plan and prepare for the house where we will stay thousands and thousands of years compared to our transit house of less than 100 years.
Allah (SWT) knows best.
