As-Salaam alaikum,
In Ayat 46 of Surat Kahfi of the Holy Qur’an (18:46), Allah Subhanahu 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.”

Thus 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 everlasting.

What are “THE GOOD THINGS THAT LAST”?  The Prophet, alaihis-Salaat Was-Salaam, told us what they are in the following Hadith, wherein one of his companions, Abu Sa’id al-Khudri, may Allah be pleased with him, reported from him that he said:—

  “Make plenty of ‘the good things that last (al-baqiyat salihat)’. It was siad: And what are they, O Messenger of
  Allah?”  He said: “TAKBIR (Saying: Allahu Akbar); TAHLIL (Saying: La-ilaha illallah); TAHMID (Saying: Alhamdu
  Lillah); and Saying: La hawla wala quwata illa Billah.”  [Bukhari and Muslim].

In view of this, we should include lots of reading/reciting the baqiyat-salihat… in our daily Zikr, when we come to remember Allah in the mornings and evenings.

Best Wishes.
