Treasuring time

Being young and full of energy is a blessing from Allah SWT. In this there is a sign for us, as we are young only once with full vivacity as old age will certainly crop us. In a hadith, it is reported by Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam):

'Take benefit of five before five: your youth before your old age, your health before your sickness, your wealth before your poverty, your free time before you are preoccupied and your life before your death.' Sahih - Narrated by Ibn Abbas & collected in al-Haakim & others. (Authenticated by Shaykh 'Ali ibn 'Abdul Hamid in Forty Hadith of the Call and the Caller).

In another hadith, Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said:

“There are seven whom Allah will shade in His Shade on the Day when there is no shade except His Shade: a just ruler; a youth who grew up in the worship of Allah, the Mighty and Majestic; a man whose heart is attached to the mosques; two men who love each other for Allah's sake, meeting for that and parting upon that; a man who is called by a woman of beauty and position [for illegal intercourse], but be says: 'I fear Allah', a man who gives in charity and hides it, such that his left hand does not know what his right hand gives in charity; and a man who remembered Allah in private and so his eyes shed tears.”

(Narrated by Abu Hurairah & collected in Sahih al-Bukhari (english trans.) vol.1, p.356, no.629 & Sahih Muslim english trans.) vol.2, p.493, no.2248)

Nevertheless, years are passing by and we are getting older day by day. While going to bed every night we have no certitude of waking up the next day. But Alhamdullilah, Allah is offering us the opportunity of a new tomorrow to be a better Muslim. He is giving us the opportunity by keeping us alive to humble ourselves deeply in front of Him by doing more 'Ibadaat and Dhikr, to follow His orders and the Sunnah of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam; to prepare way more for our Akhirah and detach ourselves from this Dunya, and to sit down and contemplate all the favors He has bestowed on us and be grateful to Him but yet we turn a blind eye. read more

Try Your Best

When you know you are trying your best,
When to please your Maker you never rest.

Then excuse those who do not see the light,
In what you stand for and constantly fight.

Those who unjustly try to serve a punch,
The Almighty Alone protects from that bunch.

Those who say a lot but know you not,
Should be ashamed of what they've now got.

Waste not your time straightening their line,
Rather draw a perfect one & you'll be fine.

But correct yourself if they are indeed right,
For that is righteousness in His Sight!

A man went to see his doctor because he was suffering from a miserable cold. His doctor prescribed some pills, but they didn’t help.

On his next visit the doctor gave him a shot, but that didn’t do any good.

On his third visit the doctor told the man, “Go home and take a hot bath. As soon as you finish bathing throw open all the windows and stand in the draft.”

“But doc,” protested the patient, “if I do that, I’ll get pneumonia.”

“I know,” said the doctor, “I can cure pneumonia.”
