Fall in Love with the Real Thing
In another ayah, God says:بَلْ تُؤْثِرُونَ الْحَيَاةَ الدُّنْيَا (16) وَالْآَخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ وَأَبْقَى (17
“But you prefer the worldly life, while the Hereafter is better and more enduring.” (87:16-17)
The Real version is better in quality (خَيْرٌ) and better in quantity (أَبْقَىٰ). No matter how great what we love in this life is, it will always have some deficiency, in both quality (imperfections) and quantity (temporary).
This is not to say that we cannot have or even love things of this life. As believers we are told to ask for good in this life and the next. But it is like the toy car and the real car. While we could have or even enjoy the toy car, we realize the difference. We understand fully that there is a lesser model (dunya: coming from the root word ‘daniya’, meaning ‘lower’) and there is the Real model (hereafter).

Ya Allah, make me strong in your way.
"Aku belajar sesuatu dari momentum.
Analogi - bila kita lantun bola keranjang ke atas court dengan tenaga yang tinggi, lantunannya jadi tinggi. Bila kita lantun dengan tenaga yang rendah, lantunannya rendah.
Lagi tinggi sayang kita pada seseorang, tinggi juga rasa peritnya bila kita kehilangannya.
Now aku wonder.
Rendah sangat ke sayang aku pada Allah, sebab bila aku buang Dia dari hidup aku (buat maksiat dan tinggalkan taubat), aku tak rasa apa-apa.”
My Mother, my Mother, my Mother <3

In 1916, in Vienna, Austria, presented the king with his wife - which, as the queen was - was entirely covered only by the fact that it is the queen and not have to be looked by any man.
But this practice was originally started by Prophet …Mohammed (peace be upon him) 1400 years ago on ALLAH’s command to protect the dignity of Women.
In a nut-shell, every Muslim woman is considered as ‘QUEEN’.
