View Full Version : TIME, No going back.

I got this from one of my friends it really makes you think of all the things you do in a day. As Muslims we should try to spend as much time as we can learning more and praising Allah.

Imagine there is a bank that credits your account each morning with £86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening it deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day.

What would you do ? Draw out every penny, of course !!!!!!

Each of us has such a bank. Its name is TIME. Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds.



Every night it writes off, as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no overdraft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day. If you fail to use the day's deposits, the loss is yours. There is no going back.



There is no drawing against the "tomorrow". You must live in the present on today's deposits.

Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness, and success !!!

To realise the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who failed a grade. To realise the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby. To realize the value of ONE WEEK, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper. To realise the value of ONE HOUR, ask the person waiting for a late Bus. To realise the value of ONE MINUTE, ask a person who missed the train. To realise the value of ONE SECOND, ask a person who just avoided an accident. To realise the value of ONE MILLISECOND, ask the person who won a silver medal in the Olympics. Treasure every moment that you have! And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time.



And remember that time waits for no one. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is mystery. Today is a gift.

That's why it's called the present !!!



"Time is witness that, surely, mankind suffers loss,
except for those of faith,
Who do good, and become a model of truthful living,
and together practice patience and constancy.

"
[surah al-Asr; 103]

So true!

Hasan al Basri (rh) said: The world is 3 days, as for yesterday it has vanished, along with all that was in it. As for tomorrow, you may never see it. As for today, it is yours so work in it.
