15. The Greatness of What Is in the Hereafter

(انْظُرْ كَيْفَ فَضَّلْنا بَعْضَهُمْ عَلَى‏ بَعْضٍ وَلَلْآخِرَةُ أَكْبَرُ دَرَجاتٍ وَأَكْبَرُ تَفْضِيلاً) .1

"Observe how We have given some of them an advantage over some others; yet the Hereafter is surely greater in respect of ranks and greater in respect of relative merit." 2

34.الإمامُ عليٌّ عليه السلام : كلُّ شي‏ءٍ مِن الدُّنيا سَماعُهُ أعظمُ مِن عِيانهِ، وكلُّ شي‏ءٍ مِن الآخرةِ عِيانُهُ أعظَمُ مِن سَماعِهِ، فَلْيَكْفِكُم مِن العِيانِ السَّماعُ ، ومِن الغَيبِ الخَبَرُ .3

34.Imam Ali (AS) said, 'Every aspect of this world seems greater upon hearing than when it is seen, and every aspect of the Hereafter is greater when it will be seen than when it is heard about. So be satisfied with the hearing in lieu of the seeing and with the tale in lieu of the concealed. [regarding the Hereafter and the unseen you should be content with what you hear and you are informed of by the prophets].' 4
