Quran verses about people who prefer dunya (world) over akhirah (Hereafter)

Allah has clearly mentioned about those who purchase the world at the cost of akhirah (Hereafter). In Quran, we can find several verses about Allah warning such people of torment (punishment in hellfire). 

This particular verse is about those who wilfully rejects Allah's commandements and consciously prefer Dunya over life-after-death. In this verse Dunya refers to kufr/rebellion against the Lord who created them. 

Surah Al Baqarah - Verse Number 86
Translation: Those are the ones who have bought the life of this world (in exchange) for the Hereafter, so the punishment will not be lightened for them, nor will they be aided. (https://quran.com/2/86-96)

English Transliteration: Ulaa-ikal-lazeenash-tarawul hayatad-dunya bil akhirah. Fala ukhaf-fafu anhumul azaabu wala hum yunsaroon

Note: This verse is not intended for the believers who take part in usual worldly affairs like working to build their life (avoiding haram of all kinds), doing marriages and taking part in other social activities. This verse is for those who are not willing to believe in the life after death and Hereafter.
