This world is a prison for the believer

Question 25: What is the meaning of the narration from the Messenger of Allah pbuhap and from the Imams pbut, “This world is a prison for the believer” [1]?

Answer: It has also been narrated from them pbut, “Prayer is an ascension for the believer.” [Kanz al-‘Ummal, vol. 7, p. 279.] So this believer is the same as that believer [from the above narration], and the believer here is not one who just believes in Islam and the allegiance (Wilaya).
