10.This ramadan…. Manage your time well.

Standard

The popular saying goes time is money but to a muslim time is much more than that, time is life.

We have been sent to the dunya for a time period and it is based on what what we gather in this time period that will make us succeed in the hereafter.

“Then, those whose scales (of good deeds) are heavy, – these, they are the successful”.
And those whose scales (of good deeds) are light, they are those who lose their ownselves, in Hell will they abide”. (Q102-103)

Many atimes we have lofty goals; we want to memorise the Qur’an, we want to seek more knowledge, we want to learn how to do certain things but subhanallah there’s not enough time in the world.

To make the most out of our time, we have to plan it accordingly. We have to give our lofty goals it’s time especially in ramadan if we are to accomplish them. If not, the numerous weapons of distractions around us would tie us into their weaves e.g non-beneficial chatter, tv, social medias e.t.c

So this ramadan let’s make it a habit to manage our time well. Every morning before the day begins, let us plan our day hour by hour, allocating specific time limit to each of our tasks. This ramadan let us keep reminding ourselves that our time is our life, so that we will only fill it with that which is beneficial.

“O Son of Adam! You are nothing but a number of days, whenever a day passes, a part of you has gone.

The Advice Of All Times

Standard

Advice from Abu Bakr, the 1st khalifa of Islam (on his death bed), to Umar, the 2nd khalifa of Islam, may Allah be pleased with both of them:

♢ Fear Allah, O ‘Umar, and know that Allah has deeds to be done for Him in the day which He will not accept if done at night, and He has deeds to be done for Him at night which He will not accept if done during the day.

He will not accept extra (nâfilah) deeds unless you fulfill the obligatory deeds. 

♢ The scales of those whose scales will be weighty on the Day of Resurrection will only be weighty because they followed the truth in this life and it was weighty to them.

And scales in which the truth will be placed tomorrow truly deserve to be heavy.

And the scales of those whose scales will be light on the Day of Resurrection will only be light because they followed falsehood in this life and it was a light matter to them.

And scales in which falsehood will be placed tomorrow truly deserve to be light.

♢ Allah the Exalted has mentioned the people of Paradise and mentioned them in the context of their best deeds, and overlooked their evil deeds, so when I remember them I say to myself: I fear that I will not be included with them.

And Allah the Exalted has mentioned the people of Hell and mentioned them in the context of their worst deeds and rejected their best deeds, so when I remember them I say: I hope I won’t be amongst them. 

Allah’s worshippers should always be in a state of hope and fear, they shouldn’t wish flimsy wishes about Allah and neither should they despair of Allah’s mercy.

♢ If you keep to this advice of mine, no one who is not with you now should be more beloved to you than death – and it is sure to come to you. 

But if you disregard this advice, no one who is not with you now should be more hated to you than death – and you cannot escape it.- Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq on his deathbed to ‘Umar bin khattab (May Allah be pleased with them)
