Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

My beloved brothers! Constantly take the name of Allah Ta‘ala and engage in zikr as this is the thing that will benefit you after you leave this world. My beloved brothers! Listen attentively to what I am saying and accept my advice, as perhaps there will not be anyone else who will advise you in this way. When a person passes away, the people of this world ask, “What has he left behind for his family and dependants?” whereas the people of the Hereafter ask, “What has he brought along with him to the Hereafter?” Therefore send forth to the Hereafter whatever you possess of the world and only hold back that amount of dunya which you absolutely require to live in this world. Each person will have to prepare his own aakhirah and will be accountable for his own deeds. When you pass away, your family and loved ones will weep for only a few days, after which nobody will remember you or cry over your demise. People coming to console the bereaved ones will force themselves to shed a few false tears and then they too will leave. (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 2/126)
