Seek The Hereafter

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيْمِ

Qarun was doubtless, of the people of Moses; but he acted insolently towards them: such were the treasures We had bestowed on him, that their very keys would have been a burden to a body of strong men: behold, his people said to him: “Exult not, for Allah loveth not those who exult (in riches).
“But seek, with the (wealth) which Allah has bestowed on thee, the Home of the Hereafter, nor forget thy portion in this world  [wealth, wives, children, etc.]: but do thou good, as Allah has been good to thee, and seek not (occasions for) mischief in the land: for Allah loves not those who do mischief.”
He said: “This has been given to me because of a certain knowledge which I have.” Did he not know that Allah had destroyed, before him (whole) generations― which were superior to him in strength and greater in amount (of riches) they had collected? But the wicked are not called (immediately) to account for their sins.   So he went forth among his people in the (pride of his worldly) glitter. Said those whose aim is the life of this World: “Oh that we had the like of what Qarun has got! for he is truly a lord of mighty good fortune.”
28:76-79
