The world is a prison for the believer

             ~ and a paradise for the disbeliever.


This means that we have not been sent to this world for filling our bellies and fulfilling our lust and self desires- the way which turns this world into a ‘paradise’ for a person; but we have been sent rather to oppose our self and to obey Allah’s commands- by which this world becomes a ‘prison’ for the believer. Hence like the disbelievers, if we also make this world a paradise by supporting our self and following our inclinations, we will be robbing disbelievers of their paradise.

In this case, Allah’s help will not be with the robber, it will be instead with those robbed!

Think well upon these words!

If we think about it:

In the first place, Adam a.s. (or human) was sent to this world as a punishment for disobeying Allah's order. That is what this life is. Its a punishment for the lust that exist within us, or kind of a second chance for us to repel, before we are given the real punishment(Hell).
