DAY 22: MAKE THE MOST OF NOW
Ibn Abbas (رضي الله عنه) narrated that,
The Prophet ﷺ said, “There are two blessings which many people lose: (They are) Health and free time for doing good.”
[Sahih al-Bukhari 6412]
Sometimes we are forced to realize the value of things only after we have lost them.
One such important yet underrated blessing is time. Things that are not said timely and actions not done in par with the clock always become the regretful burden a person carries to the future.
Most people today, especially the youngsters live in their own fictitious worlds unaware of the important things they are missing out in their life. Running behind work or running behind money/ women, have become a main purpose of life for many that they forget Allah ﷻ and the sole purpose of our creation.
Take life slow. Give a break. Spend time with real people. Give time to appreciate nature. Practice gratitude. Take care of yourself. Make the best use of now.
May Allah ﷻ help us always make the most of what we have, appreciate it’s availability and not waste His countless blessings, اللهم آمين.
