It's your loss


          Вчера было,
сегодня есть
 и завтра будет.
как вы думаете, Что это?

What is the thing
that had been yesterday
exists now
     and will be tomorrow?       


*         One of the things that cannot be returned back is time. Tick-tock tick-tock, every second is ticking, as we’re eating, as we’re studying, as we’re sleeping and what we’re doing in our everyday life.

can you turn back time?

And have you spent that time wisely enough?

It will be, on the Day they see it, as though they had not remained [in the world] except for an afternoon or a morning thereof.
(An-Naziat 79; 46)

Allah had mentioned that living in this world would be like living for one afternoon. Imagine that short amount of time.

And for that short amount of time,
Have you called your parents to ask how they were doing?
Have you reminded your friends to do good deeds and avoid His prohibitions?
Have you done good deeds?
Have you studied lillahi taala in hope that you can gain more knowledge for dunia and akhirah?
Have you started the day with a bismillah?
Have you sadakah, have you infaq as your supply of good deeds to akhirah?

Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying:
When a man dies, his acts come to an end, but three, recurring charity, or knowledge (by which people) benefit, or a pious son, who prays for him (for the deceased).
Sahih Muslim 

Have you included the Prophet Muhammad S.A.W in your prayers?
Have you remembered Allah S.W.T the Almighty for every second ticking..?
 Lie at night before you sleep and ask yourself..what have I done today?
Have I spent time wisely?

1. By Al-'Asr (the time).
2. Verily! Man is in loss,
3. Except those who believe (in Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds, and recommend one another to the truth (i.e. order one another to perform all kinds of good deeds (Al-Ma'ruf) which Allah has ordained, and abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds (Al-Munkar) which Allah has forbidden), and recommend one another to patience (for the sufferings, harms, and injuries which one may encounter in Allah's Cause during preaching His religion of Islamic Monotheism or Jihad, etc.).
(Surah 103, Al-Asr)

always slipping away..

A man is always in loss when he abuses time and uses it to disobey His prohibitions and not follow His orders.
Without realizing, we always take easy and disregard time as something very valuable.
Example: procrastination
Why wait for tomorrow what you can do today?
We can say...we can still wash that pile of clothes at another time, prepare for our concluding test tomorrow, we can still have fun at this young age and be pious and make taubah later..
But what if there is no tomorrow?

time's up!!
 A sister once said,
“Life is like a rope. For every second ticking, your rope is being cut, bit by bit. And for that short amount of rope left, let’s spend our time with something most worth spending at.”

There are a lot of priorities in life; studies, family, friends, work etc. But always remember, that one of our most top priorities in life is to be an abd, totally subordinate slave of Allah.
Before it became too late, and before you feel as though you have only lived for one afternoon, let’s spend the time left with things that He loves.

Before you rope came to its end, make a self-reflection and start living life as a chase to akhirah, jannah.

We might be weak, yes, but trying is what’s best, don’t you think?

psst..the answer is time.
