(S.O.S. – ‘Saving Our Seconds’ Series – Part Four)

Every single person has different tasks, errands and responsibilities that he has to attend to on a daily basis. From basic human needs, such as eating and sleeping, to activities that are more leisure orientated, such as enjoying a cup of coffee with friends, people spend their time in different ways.

It is human nature for a person to be inclined to engaging himself in the action which interests him the most. Hence, household chores hold little appeal, while catching up with friends is highly enjoyable. However, a wise person will prioritize and ensure that the most urgent of tasks are attended to first.

(Sayyidah Maryam [‘alaihas salaam] – Part Two)

The mother and father of Sayyidah Maryam (‘alaihas salaam) were ‘Imraan and Hannah. Before the birth of Maryam (‘alaihas salaam), Hannah was unable to bear a child.

One day, Hannah observed a bird feeding its chick. Seeing this spectacle of love and compassion, her heart was overcome by the desire to have a child. She thus turned to Allah Ta‘ala in du‘aa, begging him to bless her with a child, until her du‘aa was answered. Soon thereafter, when she conceived, she vowed to Allah Ta‘ala that she would dedicate her child to worshipping Him and serving Musjidul Aqsa. (Surah Aal ‘Imraan v35, Tafseer Ibnu Katheer vol. 2 pg. 337)

We often see the sign “Free Wi-Fi”. In fact, we often search for this sign, as people fear becoming ‘disconnected’. Whether in a hotel, airport, restaurant or anywhere else, this sign is a sure draw card, attracting people to the premises.

However, it is doubtful that any of us would have seen a sign saying “Wi-Fi Free”, even though this is the sign that we all need to hang in our homes at the very least for the last ten days of Ramadhaan.

The last ten days of Ramadhaan are unlike the first twenty days. It is most probably during one of the odd nights of these ten days that Laylatul Qadr (the Night of Power) occurs which is more virtuous than a thousand months. Showing his Ummah the importance of these ten days, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) exerted himself even further during this blessed period.

(S.O.S. – ‘Saving Our Seconds’ Series – Part Three)

Surah ‘Asr is a surah of the Quraan Majeed dedicated to the importance of time. In this surah, Allah Ta‘ala explains that every person is in a loss regarding his time, unless he holds onto four actions. Hence, we understand that spending one’s time fruitfully and productively revolves around a person engaging himself in these actions.

These four actions are; making effort on imaan, carrying out righteous deeds, encouraging others towards righteousness and encouraging people to remain steadfast and persevere.

Ja’far As-Saa-igh (rahimahullah) narrates the following:

Among the neighbours of Imaam Ahmad bin Hambal (rahimahullah) was a man who was involved in many sins, evils and shameless deeds. One day, this man came to the gathering of Imaam Ahmad bin Hambal (rahimahullah) and greeted him with salaam. However, although Imaam Ahmad (rahimahullah) replied to his salaam, he did not show him attention and receive him with warmth. Rather, he seemed uncomfortable in the presence of this man (as this man was well known to have evil ways and sinful habits).

The man immediately perceived the discomfort of Imaam Ahmad (rahimahullah) and thus said, “O Abu ‘Abdillah (rahimahullah)! Why are you uncomfortable in my presence? On account of a dream that I saw, I have completely changed and I am no longer the person that you knew me to be.” Imaam Ahmad (rahimahullah) asked, “What dream did you see?”
