The Quran speaks of two lives: the one in this “world” (dunya), which is finite, and the other in the “Hereafter” (ahiret), which is infinite. The relation between these words in the Quran is very clear. These two words, which are used sometimes together in a verse and sometimes separately, are mentioned 115 times each. There are two examples below:
185- …The life of this world is no more than goods and chattels of deception.
3-The Family of Imran, 185
103- This should be a sign for those who fear the torment of the Hereafter…
