    As-Salaam alaikum,
    In Ayat 46 of Surat Kahfi of the Holy Qur'an (18:46), AllaHU, 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."

    Material things are short-lived and temporary, but the "good things that last" will remain and endure forever. 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, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, told us what they are in the Hadith wherein one of his companions, Abu Sa'id al-Khudri, may Allah be pleased with him, reported that the Prophet, alaihis-Salaat Was-Salaam, said:--

    "Make plenty of the 'good things that last (al-baqiyat salihat)'. It was said:
    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, Muslim].

    Also, the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said: "The most beloved words to Allah
    are 4: SUBHANALLAH; ALHAMDU-LILLAH; LA-ILAHA ILLALLAH; ALLAHU AKBAR."
    [Sahih Muslim].
    In view of this, we should include lots of reciting of the Baqiyat Salihat in our daily Zikr, when we come to Remember Allah, Azzah Wa Jallah, in the mornings and evenings.
    Best Wishes.
