وبَصّره فجايع الدنيا""
Man selects a shelter for living which is safe from hazards and where the hardships will not threaten him; or else it is foolish to dwell in a place where you are not safe.
Some, however, are involved in the life here and have forgotten the statements of Imam ‘Ali (as) who has said: "This world is a house engulfed in disasters; it is famous for its deceits; it is changing all the time; it is not a safe place to dwell in; security is inconceivable in it. Its dwellers are always a target for its arrows of misfortune.
Thus, my son! Always remember the disasters of this world so that you will not live there negligently and wrongly assume that it is eternal!!
