It is only this worldly life

قَالُوا لَن نُّؤْثِرَكَ عَلَى مَا جَاءنَا مِنَ الْبَيِّنَاتِ وَالَّذِي فَطَرَنَا فَاقْضِ مَا أَنتَ قَاضٍ إِنَّمَا تَقْضِي هَذِهِ الْحَيَاةَ الدُّنْيَا
"They (the magicians) said (replying to the Pharaoh): "We will never prefer you over the clear signs that have come to us, and over Him (Allâh) Who created us. So decree whatever you desire to decree, for you can only decree (regarding) this worldly life." [Surah Taa Haa, 72]

Whenever I encounter this verse I am bewildered at the statement of the magicians. Such strong and pure belief!
