As-Salaam alaikum,
In Ayat 46 of Surat Kahfi of the Holy Qur’an (18:46), Allah Tabaraka Wa Ta’ala says:—

  “WEALTH AND CHILDREN ARE THE EMBELLISHMENT OF WORLDLY LIFE, AND THE
  GOOD THINGS THAT LAST (al-baqiyat-as-salihat) ARE GREATER WITH YOUR LORD
  AND GREATER IN EXPECTATION.”

Material things are short-lived and temporary, but ‘‘the good things that last” will remain and endure for ever. That is, their reward will continue into the hereafter, and the hereafter is far better and ever lasting.

What are “the good things that last?”  The Noble Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, told us what they are in a Hadith in which one of his companions, Abu Sa’id al-Khudri, may Allah be pleased with him, reported that the Messenger of Allah, alaihis-Salaat Was-Salaam, said:—

  “Make plenty of ‘the good things that last (al-baqiyat salihat)’. It was said:
  What are they, O Messenger of Allah?”  He said: “TAKBIR (Saying: ALLAHU AKBAR),
  TAHLIL (Saaying: LA-ILAHA ILLALLAH), TAHMID (Saying: ALHAMDULILLAH), and Saying:
LA-HAWLA WALA QUWATA ILLA BILLAH.”

So, we should include the recital of lots of these Noble words of the TAKBIR, TAHLIL and TAHMID.., the baqiyat salihat… in our daily Zikr, when we come to remember Allah, Azzah Wa Jallah, in the mornings and evenings.

Best Wishes.
