The Value of Time


It's been a long time for not spending a word here. I am so busy with a lots of work and feel that I want to run away far from that works. The problem here is I am the one who offer myself to do that work, no matter what, I must finish it~

Allah said complete in a Quranic chapter that: "By (the Token of) Time (through the ages), Verily Man is in loss, Except such as have Faith, and do righteous deeds, and (join together) in the mutual teaching of Truth, and of Patience and Constancy." (Qur'an,103:1-3). There must be a good reason why He swear by a time that cannot be seen or feel, but always go faster than us.

The Prophet PBUH also gave a good reminder that: “The majority of humanity is at a loss as they do not recognize the value of two of God’s gifts: Health and (discretionary) time.” (Sahih Bukhari). Man always ignore the value of health and time. They took advantage with this two bounties that if both gone, they will regret for the rest of their life.

Because of this reason, I'm trying to do a paper work to analyze the management of time from Sunnah perspective due to the best example of the Prophet who had many responsibilities as a leader, a governor, a chief commander, and at the same time he was a husband to his wives, a father to his children and a grandfather to his grandchildren.

May Allah help me to complete this paper on time and may this study will benefit others..

A good insight to think about as mentioned below:

To realize the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who has failed a grade.
To realize the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who has given birth to a pre-mature baby.
To realize the value of ONE WEEK, ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.
To realize the value of ONE DAY, ask a daily wage laborer who has kids to feed.
To realize the value of ONE HOUR, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.
To realize the value of ONE MINUTE, ask a person who has missed the train.
To realize the value of ONE SECOND, ask a person who has avoided an accident.
To realize the value of ONE MILLI-SECOND, ask the person who has won a silver medal in the Olympics.

Let's make our second, our minute, our hour, our day, our week, our month, our year to remember The Almighty~

**I wish that time can stop for a while, but it's impossible.. T_T
