Managing Your Time Wisely

  • Our lives are made up of hours, minutes and seconds. Every second of our lives brings us closer to our last breath which has been decreed by Allah (s.w.t.). When our lives are filled with righteousness, then goodness awaits us in the hereafter. However, if our time in this world is wasted away, then misery awaits us in the next life.

     

     

  • The amount of time that Allah (s.w.t.) gives us is limited. Therefore, in our efforts to fulfil our worldly needs and achieve our aspirations, let us not neglect our preparation for our next life in the hereafter. When we are given the opportunity to bring ourselves closer to Allah (s.w.t.), we should strive to make the best out of it. We should also avoid wasting our time doing things that are useless and do not bring us closer to Allah (s.w.t.).

     

     

  • For example, when we perform our prayers, we must ensure that we do so in the best way possible in terms of concentration and movement. We should direct our focus entirely to Allah (s.w.t.) as though it is our last prayer. Amidst our busy schedule, take a few moments to remember Allah (s.w.t.), either through making supplications or reflecting upon His greatness and glory.
