The Time

The Time
A wise man said, Life is nothing but an accumulation of many breaths. 
So every breath is a precious diamond which cannot be purchased with anything in the world. It is a priceless jewel which has no substitute in value. 

So in movements and talks, and in sorrows and happiness, such a priceless breath should not be spent in vain. 
To destroy it is to court destruction. An intelligent man cannot lose it.(Imam al-Ghazali).

Death can take us at any second into immediate action and  It should make us realize that we have no time to waste as each second that goes by could be the very last.

My friends, We should realize that time is very limited and never return back so must prepare for our deaths now.

Therefore on a daily basis we should contemplate, ponder and reflect upon this realization and it will have a significant impact upon our faith, as it will make us realize the temporary nature of this life and the fact that the real life is that of the hereafter which is for eternity.
It will also make us realize that each second that goes by can never be regained.

Daqaq (Ra) says, 'Who ever remembers death frequently, will benefit in three ways:
he will hasten to repent, he will become content, and he will be active in worship.
Whoever forgets death will be punished in three ways: he will delay repentance, he will no longer be content with what is sufficient, and he will be lazy in worship.

Moreover, Ibn Qayyim  said: "Losing time is harder than death, as losing time keeps you away from Allah and the Hereafter, while death keeps you away from the worldly life and people."

My friends, We should all agreed that time is of the essence, it is too precious to be wasted or neglected. 
The wise person is the one who pays attention to his time and he limits it to worthy efforts and righteous deeds that please Allah and benefit the humankind to raise his own status by pleasing Allah Almighty.

And  Ali (Ra) said: "Everyone who is taken by death asks for more time, while everyone who still has time makes excuses for putting off important tasks."
This life is merely a journey from the worldy life to the here after life,  until we reach our final destination in the hereafter.... hopefully Heaven..

According to Ibn Maajah, Heaven or paradise is nothing compared to.  It is sparkling light, aromatic plants, a lofty palace, a flowing river, ripe fruit, a beautiful wife & abundant clothing, in an eternal abode of radiant joy, in beautifully constructed high houses.

Moreover, Tirmidhi wrote "Bricks of gold & silver, & mortar of fragrant musk, pebbles of pearl & sapphire, & soil of saffron. Whoever enters it is filled with joy & will never feel miserable; he will live there forever."

My Friends, let us make the best of the little time we have left & not put off preparing for the Hereafter, use the knowledge to understand and obey it.
Those who desire Allah,
Those who desire what Allah has,
Those who desire other then Allah.
The lover is the one who desires Allah.

Digest the statement of Imam ash Ahafi’s "All humans are dead except those who have knowledge ... and all those who have knowledge are asleep, except those who do good deeds ... and those who do good deeds are deceived, except those who are sincere ... and those who are sincere are always in a state of worry."

Therefore my friends, let us act now and do and say everything that will benefit us in this world and the next.
And will please Allah and refrain from doing or saying anything that will be detrimental to us in this world and the next and will anger and displease Allah.

Lets love the worldy life to achieved better life …… hereafter….., Taqwa is to obey Allah, to remember Allah, and to thank Allah aand to love Allah..... not because of Heaven or Hell.... But just love Allah almighty.
