Make use of your time before it is lost


The month of Ramadan ends very quickly…

And verily the prophet ﷺ has said:

“The hour will not be established) until time becomes short, until a year will feel like a month and a month will feel like a jumu’ah and jumu’ah will feel like a day and a day will feel like an hour and an hour will be like the burning of a palm leaf.”

[Ahmad and tirmidhi and other than them from the hadeeth of Abu hurayrah]

And this is noticeable: for verily (it is as if) just yesterday we were at the beginning of Ramadan and today we have finished with It and entering into a another Ramadan… And likewise the same is said with age…

{إن في ذلك لعبرة}

“In that is an admonition”

For age passes as the night and day passes… And the soul leaves and it does not return and the day leaves and does not return and the hour passes and does not return and like this…..

So whoever takes advantage of time with goodness, then he leaves with good. And whoever leaves with other than good in that time, then it will be regret for that individual and sorrow in accordance to how much goodness he has lost out on, like the prophet ﷺ said:

“There is not a people who sit in a sitting and do not remember Allah in it except it will be regret for them on the day of judgement”

[Ahmad from the hadeeth of Abu hurayrah]

Benefited from: Shaykh, the Allamah, the Trustworthy Advisor, Abu Abdirrahman Yahya bin Ali Al-Hajuri – may Allah preserve him.
