The World is a Single Moment

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

As translated Ustadz Simone Dario Nardella, Shaykh Muhammad al-Hafizh ibn ‘Abd al-Lathif al-Miswri (q.s.) said, “This world is a single moment, and our existence in it is a fraction of that moment, while the next life is lasting, and its permanence is part of the Permanence of Allah’s (s.w.t.) Existence.  Whoever is for Allah (s.w.t.), with a part of the moment of his existence, Allah (s.w.t.) will be for him with the Totality of His Permanence.  Whoever finds a hundred thousand billion kayl of gold sold for one tenth of one tenth of a dirham would be foolish not to buy it, knowing that the price goes, while the object of value lasts.”  A “kayl” is a unit of measure.
