Ramadan Series 9
"Time is money" and "Time is gold", these are two famous proverbs on the importance of time to humans.
Our beloved Prophet (SAW) said, in a hadith, "There are two blessings which many people lose: (they are) health and free time for doing good", (Bukhari).
In another hadith, he said, "Take advantage of five matters before five other matters: your youth before you become old; your health before you fall sick; your wealth before you become poor; your free time before you become preoccupied, and your life before your death", (Musnad Imam Ahmad).
And in the Qur'an, Allah SWT said, "I have only created Jinns and Men (mankind) that they may serve Me. No Sustenance do I require of them, nor do I require that they should feed Me. For Allah is He Who gives (all) Sustenance, Lord of Power, Steadfast forever", (Qur'an, 51:56-58).
May Allah bless us with the ability to use our time wisely to increase our faith in this life and the hereafter. Aameen
