Ever played monopoly? Funny how good it feels to be the winner, owning the best streets and having a few hotels while the cash is flowing, but at the end of the game, the winner has to put all the money, hotels and houses back into the box.
The same applies in life, when you die everything has to go back into the box. That brings up the question of "what is success?" To have all the money in the world? To be a director of a company? To drive the most expensive car?
NO, it cant be, because at the end, everything has to go back into the box....and when you get to the gate these things will not be your ticket to enter the Kingdom of Jannah.
So, what is success? To seek the pleasure of Allah first and all other things will be added unto you (freedom, happiness, health, unity, prosperity, peace) and the bonus is when you die, you will have eternal life.
