Ayat Al Qur’an - Surah Al Asr

 وَٱلْعَصْرِ

103. 1 By (the phenomenon of) time (which Allah manifests through His creation of night and day and in which the servants perform their deeds)

إِنَّ ٱلْإِنسَٰنَ لَفِى خُسْ     

103. 2 Indeed, (all of) mankind is in loss.

إِلَّا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَعَمِلُوا۟ ٱلصَّٰلِحَٰتِ وَتَوَاصَوْا۟ بِٱلْحَقِّ وَتَوَاصَوْا۟ بِٱلصَّبْرِ

103.3  Except those who believe (in Allāh, His Angels,  Books, Prophets, the Last Day and the Divine Decree) and work righteous deeds (which are sincere and correct) and mutually advise each other (in calling to and abiding by) the truth and mutually advise each other with patience (in facing the inevitable harms brought by calling to the truth). 

Hadith

Ibn Abbas reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Take advantage of five before five: your youth before your old age, your health before your illness, your riches before your poverty, your free time before your work, and your life before your death.”

Source: Shu’ab al-Imān 9767
Grade: Sahih (authentic) according to Al-Albani

Reflection Point:

As the hadith mentions that we should take advantage of our free time, before it is taken up by worldly affairs. How many of us look back at the days of our youth and identify moments where we could have used our time more wisely. How many of us have relatives and family members who have passed away, and the opportunities we had to spend more time with them have passed us by. For some it could be quality time spent with your mother and your father before they reach old age.

The point here is that we should reflect upon our time and make efforts to use it wisely. Focus on the things that truly matter and that which will benefit us in the hereafter. 

So for this week, think about your time and how you can use it in a more productive and effective way.

When was the last time you dedicated personal time to your health?

Your religion? 

Your loved ones?

Before it’s too late…
