Hawzah News Agency – Imam Ali (AS), in his will to Imam al-Hasan (AS) says: 

اعلَمْ يا بُنَيَّ أنَّكَ إنّما خُلِقتَ للآخِرَةِ لا للدُّنيا، وللفَناءِ لا للبَقاءِ، وللمَوتِ لا للحَياةِ، وأ نَّكَ في قُلعَةٍ ودارِ بُلغَةٍ وطَريقٍ إلَى الآخِرَةِ، وأنّكَ طَريدُ المَوتِ الّذي لايَنجو مِنهُ هارِبُهُ، ولا يَفوتُهُ طالِبُهُ، ولابُدَّ أنّهُ مُدرِكُهُ، فكُن مِنهُ على‏ حَذَرٍ أن يُدرِكَكَ وأنتَ على‏ حالٍ سَيِّئةٍ، قد كنتَ تُحَدِّثُ نفسَكَ مِنها بالتَّوبَةِ فيَحولُ بينَكَ وبينَ ذلكَ، فإذا أنتَ قد أهلَكتَ نفسَكَ.

'My son, know that you have been created for the next world and not for this world, and for annihilation and not to stay, for death and not for life; you are in a transient place, a place which is a path to the Hereafter. You are running away from death from which no one can run away from and which none of its seekers can miss. It has to be experienced so beware lest it catches up with you while you are in a bad state, while you were promising yourself to repent for the sin, but it did not allow you to repent and it made you perish.'
