For the handles of some watches to be able to glow in the dark it is necessary that the watch receives enough light during the day.
Similarly, if we want to glow in the darkness of the grave, if we want to shine of the day of Judgement, if we want to guided by the light of Imaan then it is inevitable that we provide ourselves with this light during our lifetime. It is necessary to prepare for the darkness while there is still light.
Like the saying goes, do not start digging for a well when the fire has commenced. Meaning that it is hopeless and too late to start digging for a well when the fire has broken out; there is no time for that now. Similarly, it will be hopeless to start searching for the light in the grave if we have not prepared luminous acts beforehand.
"There are times of happiness, and there are times of sadness. The bitter cold of the winter is not the end of the world. It is the time to plant new seeds, to show patience and get out of the winter as quickly as possible. The key is not to avoid the winters, no one can do that. But when the winter hits, show patience and gratitude so that it passes quickly."

Never do I argue with a man with a desire to hear him say what is wrong is wrong, or to expose him and win victory over him. Whenever I face an opponent in debate, I silently pray "O Lord, help him so that truth may flow from his heart and on his tongue, and so that if truth is on my side, he may follow me; And if truth be on his, I may follow him." -Imam Ash-Shafi (rahimullah)
الدنيا سجن المؤمن و جنة الكافر
“The world is a prison for the believer and paradise for the disbeliever”
“Allah sometimes takes us into troubled waters Not to drown us, but to cleanse us.”
