The life of this world is alluring to those who reject faith, and they scoff at those who believe. But the righteous will be above them on the Day of Resurrection; for Allah bestows His abundance without measure on whom He will.

Dr. Israr Ahmad in his Bayan ul Quran, writes,

‘“The life of this world is alluring to those who reject faith and they scoff at those
who believe.” The disbelievers accumulate all the worldly splendors in this
life and amass wealth but refrain from spending it in the way of Allah
(SWT). Instead they look down upon the true believers and scoff at them
for spending their lives and wealth in the way of Allah (SWT) to earn His
pleasure and remain bereft of things of worldly importance. “But the
righteous will be above them on the Day of Resurrection.” i.e. the disbelievers may
be enjoying the worldly pleasures in this transitional period but on the
Day of Resurrection it will be the faithful who will be exalted and in the
highest ranks, while the disbelievers will be humiliated terribly. “for Allah
(SWT) bestows His abundance without measures on whom He wills.” i.e. Allah (SWT)
provides sustenance to whomever He wishes without any count or
measure in this world and in the Hereafter.’
