A Residence Short-Lived

Now you live in a residence short-lived
In which the deeds of the doers are accepted
See you not how death encompasses it
And destroys all aspirations
There you rush to fulfill your lustful desires
And procrastinate your repentance
But death will overcome you by surprise
But what will the intelligent learn from this?

Imam Al-Ridha’ (a.s.)
