Once I was conversing with a old muslim man, who told me
that what ever situation you are in, never think of disobeying Allah in the
least bit. Things in life may get very difficult and may also decision making
should be done very cautiously. And he narrated to me a story of a pious girl
who was the paragon of virute and piety. She considered herself answerable to
Allah for every act that she does. Allah blessed her with a pious and righteous

Life went on and she got pregnant and when it was time for
the baby to be delivered, doctors informed that she needed a ceasarean. Her
husband took her to the only hospital in town where there was no female doctor
available and can be only available only after 4 days. There was a male doctor
who could perform if the couple gives permission. The husband  are ready for it, considering the medical
condition of the girl deteriorating and she need an operation early….but the
girl said: By Allah this will never happen…I would rather die than have a male
stranger operate and deliver the baby.

Husband: My self-respect connot brook it either that a male
strangerlooks upon you, but your life is at stake.

Girl: None of us will live forever in this world. If my
death is ordained this way, I welcome it and am happily prepared to embraceit.
Have you heard the saying of the prophet (pbuh) that : If a women dies in the
state of nifas (post natal bleeding), dies a martyr. And prophet (pbuh) also
said: whoever gives up a thing for the sake of Allah Almighty, He gives him/her
something better in return.

Hearing this the husband takes her home. Very soon her
health conditions improved, she delivered the child without an operation. The
coupled thanked Allah and they were very happy.What we understand from this
story is that we must have the will to do things for the sake of Allah. If we
decide it and be steadfast in it, then Allah will do things for you in a
fashion that is much easy for you and he will make you pleased with it. This
only Allah can do, but people place their trust brothers, sisters, mothers,
fathers,friends and relatives. If they have pure intention then Allah will make
way out for them.

Try to read all those three statements in the conversation
of the girl. Her thinking was Allah centred. If this girl had thought my life
is at stake, why don’t I allow a male stranger to operate, Allah will forgive
me as this was an emergency. Then she would have definitely been operated in
that hopsital by a male doctor. She thought about her rights upon her body
first rather than thinking about her life. What she chose was the pleasure of
Allah. She had a strong will in herself that even if I die, I would prefer to
die as a martyr rather than disobeying Allah. If Allah’s pleasure is what we look
for, then without doubt that we have the will and we need to be patientand keep
striving in his path until Allah shows you the way.

WHO SAYS- TIME IS MONEY-------TIME IS HEREAFTER........Waste your time, Suffer in Hereafter.


Henry Wadsworth said in his one of the motivational  works a few lines which are:

Art is long, and Time is fleeting,
And our hearts, though stout and brave,
Still, like muffled drums, are beating
Funeral marches to the grave.

These four lines give us so much to think about how precious our time is

Art is long- Art constitutes many things that we are passionate about or work, study, research and gain more knowledge about. And we often sacrifice many aspects of our life. Be it any field we have specialisations available and deep  analysis and study is available to learn.

Time is fleeting – And the time that we have has no control. Its running out every moment and within a snap of a finger, day changes.

And our hearts, though stout and brave – Our hearts become more enduring and brave.

Still like muffled drums are beating – Heart does not move from its place inside our body, but it is like muffled drums, muffled means to wrap or cover to reduce the noice, our hearts are covered by our rib cage and body at large. And the beating of the heart at the rate of 72 beats per minute is like funeral marches which takes place when a armyman’s body is taken to the graveyard with drums beating on every step that the procession takes.
Doesnt these lines denote that every second passed is taking us closer to the grave by a second..?

Surah Asr is a surah in which Allah swears (oath) by time. The surah shows very clearly and specifies for us a bare minimum that we should be doing or else we will be losers and our end would be unpleasant. Imam Shafi has very rightly said that if the people only considered this Surah well, it alone would suffice them for their guidance. How important this Surah was in the sight of the Companions can be judged from the tradition cited from Hadrat Abdullah bin Hisn ad-Darimi Abu Madinah, according to which whenever any two of them met they would not part company until they had recited Surah Al-Asr to each other. (Tabarani). As for the oath,  Allah has not sworn an oath by any of the created objects on account of its wonderful qualities but for the reason that it adds to the truth which is meant to be understood by us. Therefore, the oath by Time signifies that Time is witness to the truth that man is in sheer loss except for the people who possess the four qualities.

1)Faith, (2) Righteous deeds, (3) exhorting one another to Truth, and (4) exhorting one another to patience.

Let me bring your attention to an examination hall, where the candidates are writing exam. The candidate who would use time wisely would be able to solve all the questions in the question paper. But for candidate who did not concentrate enough to answering thw questions would be in a loss. If we are more consious of the time, and use it wisely then definitely we would not be among the losers. Using time wisely means that setting our priorities right and understanding the purpose behind our creation.

This reminds me of an ayah mentioned in Quran from surah Shu ara ayah 88-89 which says, “The day when wealth and children will not benefit anyone except he who will come to Allah with a Qalb-e-Saleem.”

What use would money be when we are in front of Allah on the Day of Judgement……?

What use would wisely used time by obeying Allah and His Messenger be when we are in front of Allah on the Day of Judgement..?
