How often do you think about your life in Olam Haba (The World To Come)? If you discovered that someone who you love has lost their share of Olam Haba, do you shed a tear? If you discovered that you were risking your share in Olam Haba, do you get scared and try to do teshuva (repentance)?

I don't consciously think of my Olam Habah.

Pretty much what iwish said.

I can honestly say the the afterlife is something that occupies very little of my thoughts.

I only think of the afterlife in terms of people who have already died.

I hope this thread is insightful to the Muslims and Christians who come to this forum. We are not as obsessed with Paradise / Janna.

Sorry to disappoint. I think of it often. I think my history of posts here will demonstrate that.

I think when we act as if there's something at stake, it grealyt affects our choices and courses of action (for the positive).

Why thank you for the invitation.

I don't think about it that often.
