The Quran tells us that the believers goal is seeking the good in this life and the next. This is encapsulated in the Quranic supplication,

Our Lord! Give unto us in the world that which is good and in the Hereafter that which is good, and guard us from the doom of Fire. [Quran, 2.201]

The Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) told us, The wayfarer or stranger do not avoid comfort, enjoyment, or interests related to their journey or place of sojourn. However, they realize that their destination is more important than their fleeting journey or sojourn. Thus, they prioritize. They realize that this worldly life is a means to the next life. We seek the good in it, as a means to the good in the next life, not as an end in itself.

We have been instructed by the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) that, From the excellence of ones Islam is to leave that which does not concern one. [Timidhi]

Some early Muslims said, .Whoever busies themselves with that which does not concern them misses out on much of that which does concern them.
