Do you have time?

Sad,
Anger,
Blind,
Deaf,
Numb.

Question,
Search,
Look,
Hear,
Feel.

Do you wonder how wide the universe is
Did you hear the birds chirping at dawn
Do you remember the last time you’ve seen your favorite flower
Are there trees that are so tall you think if they’d grow even more, they’d be in the clouds?

Now can you inhale some oxygen
Can you taste the pureness of water
Can you wear your favorite clothing
Can you hug your mother after her busy day?

Concious, my brother! So many people are not given the chance to do these anymore. But don’t be sad! Because they had their time. But you, you still have time.
Time starts, time ends. Can you tell me, when will time end? I’d say Allah knows, while we know not.

Concious, my brother! No time deserves to be wasted. It may end any second of any minute of any hour of any day.

And don’t be sad! Are you sad of the life Allah has given to you? Allah, The Just of All Judges, gives you what is best. Nothing is better than Allah’s will. Don’t you love how Allah made the clouds look like?

And don’t be angry! Are you angry at the life Allah gave you? Are you angry of your compassionate Creator? Subhanallah, He is the same Creator of your mother and father.

A man once came to the Prophet (salAllāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) for some Nasiha. The man said, “Give me some advice, Oh Rasulullah”. The Prophet (salAllāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said “Don’t get angry”. The man said, “Oh Rasulullah, give me some more advice.” The Prophet (salAllāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Don’t get angry”. The man said to give him some more advice, and Rasulullah (salAllāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said for a third time, “Don’t get angry”.

Concious, my brother! Everything around you is Allah’s rahmat. Be it what you like and what you dislike.
“But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.” [QS. Al-Baqarah/2 : 216]

Concious, my brother! Only in the remembrance of Allah will the heart be assured. So why be angry and sad? Ain’t nobody got time for that!

“It is Allah who has sent down the Book in truth and [also] the balance. And what will make you perceive? Perhaps the Hour is near.” [QS. Ash-Shuraa/42 : 17]

All praise is due to Allah, The Entirely Merciful, The Especially Merciful.


“The biggest advantage in the world is to occupy yourself every time with the most important and beneficial for the hereafter. How can you call it rational to sell Jannah and it’s enjoyment for worldly pleasure that is only temporary?” – Ibnu Qayyim

    Beautifully true. This reminds me of the verse: “His mercy encompasses all things” (40:7)…all things…even hell-fire.
    That’s why his Mercy precedes His Wrath: because even in His wrath, there is Mercy.
    May Allah bless you.

      Haa! And that reminded me of “And to Allah belongs the east and the west. So wherever you [might] turn, there is the Face of Allah . Indeed, Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.” 2:115
      I really appreciate the feedback!
      Jazakallah khairan katsiran
