I got this via email and thought it was very nicely put, and now that there are only a few days of the first ten days of dhul hijjah left, a good reminder.

There is a Bank that credits your account each morning with £86,400There is a Bank that credits your
account each morning with £86,400.
It carries over no balance from day to day.
Every evening deletes whatever part of the
balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out ALL of it, of course!!!!
Each of us has such a Bank. It's 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 by doing good deeds. 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."

If you were given £86,400 free every day to withdraw, you wouldn't leave one bit of it undrawn, sitting there to waste, so why do we do this with our time?

Here are some ways you can quickly and easily invest that time and make good use of it, at the same time as doing something else!

What a super investment!

You must live in the present on today's deposits. Invest it carefully with wisdom and knowledge. Use your Time to do good and Charity; To faithfully practice the Five Pillars and your Deen. To faithfully give thanks to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala; To adhere to the teachings of the Sunnah of His Beloved Messenger Sall-Allahu alaihi wa sallam. In order that you may benefit the utmost in blessings and guidance in your life and live in peace and happiness, and attain success in the hereafter inshaAllah! The clock is running. Make the most of everyday. Start working on your 'Time'

Surah Al 'Asr
(By the Token of TIME)
By (the Token of)Time (through the Ages),
Verily Man Is in loss,
Except such as have Faith And do righteous deeds,
In the mutual teaching Of Truth, and of Patience and Constancy.
(Qur'an 103: 1-3 )

What Can You Do in 10 Minutes?

Bismillaah Ar-Rahmaan Ar-Raheem

Here is a list of 10 things that would not take more than 10 minutes of our time. And if we truly understood the happiness these actions bring in this life and the next, we would spend our life in dedication to these deeds:

10. Pray 2 rakaat (Salatul Duha) anytime after sunrise and before Dhuhr.

Abu Hurayrah radi Allahu anhu said, "My khaleel, Allah's Messenger sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam advised me to do three things (1) That I fast 3 days of each month and (2) To pray 2 rakaat of Duha and (3) That I do my witr before sleeping" (Bukhari and Muslim).

9. Pray for RasulAllah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam.

He sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, "Whoever prays for me once, Allah blesses that person 10 times (because of that prayer)" (Muslim).

8. Repeat what the mu'adhdhin is saying.

Abdullah ibn Amr narrates: A man said, "O Messenger of Allah, the ones that call the people to prayer receive more reward than us."

So Allah's Messenger sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam replied, "Say what they say, then when you finish, pray for anything and you shall be given it" (Abu Dawood).

7. Say subhan Allah - How far Allah is from imperfection! –100 times.

Mus'ab ibn Sa'd said: My father told me that he was with Allah's Messenger sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam when he remarked, "Does any one of you not have the ability to attain 1000 hasanaat (good deeds) every day? Let him do tasbeeh (Subhan Allah) 100 times and it will be written for him as 1000 hasanaat or 1000 sins will be wiped from his record" (Muslim).

6. Play with your children for the sake of Allah.

Jabir narrates: We were with Allah's Messenger sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam on our way to an invitation to a meal when we passed Al-Husayn playing in the alley with some Ansar children. Allah's Messenger sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam walked a little faster to go and play with him. He stuck out his hand to take him, but Al-Husayn ran here and there squealing gleefully until Allah's Messenger caught him. Then he sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam held his chin with one hand and his head with the other and kissed Al-Husayn and hugged him (Bukhari).

5. Make du’a often during times of ease.

RasulAllah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, "Whoever it pleases that Allah answer his supplications during times of calamity and hardship, let him increase his supplication amidst the times of ease" (Tirmidhi and Al Hakim).

Bonus: Say the Dhikr after Making Wudu.

RasulAllah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, "If anyone of you, after perfecting his wudu, says, 'Ash hadu an laa ilaaha illAllah, wa ashhadu anna Muhammadan 'Abduhu wa Rasooluh (I bear witness that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is his slave and Messenger), the eight gates of Jannah will open for him and he will be permitted to enter from whichever he wishes" (Muslim).

4. Pick up the phone to call your mother (or a close relative) and tell them that you love them.

RasulAllah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, "The Wasil (One who fulfils the rights of his ties of kinship) is not the one who does good when family members do good (and bad when they are bad). The Wasil is the one who, when family members cut him off he does good to them" (Interpretation of a Bukhari).

3. Take a few minutes to stop and contemplate Allah's amazing creation, of your eyes, voice, and entire body.

Allah says in the Qur'an:

And on the earth are signs for the certain (in faith) /And in yourselves, will you not see (and contemplate) (Az-Zariyat 51/20-21)?

2. Share a part of your lunch with someone.

RasulAllah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, "Oh Abu Dharr! If you cook any soup, increase its water and then look to your neighbors and give them some of it" (Muslim).

And the number one deed you can do in less then 10 minutes...

1. Make du'a for your brother in his absence.

RasulAllah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, “If a person prays for his (or her) brother in their absence (without them knowing), an angel (hears the du'a) and replies, ‘Ameen! And may Allah give you the same’” (Ahmad, Abu Dawood and Tirmidhi).

In fact, whenever the Sahaabah and Taabi'een wanted their du'a to be answered quickly, they would ask the same thing for their brother in order to get the angel to reply, ‘Ameen! And may Allah give you the same.’

In sha Allah, let's all try at the very least to find one deed from this list and implement it in this coming week. After it has become habit, try another deed and so on. This is how we can all grow.

All credit for the link in my post goes to Brother Hamza. Unfortunately (and strangely) I have no edit button for that post so can't edit the post to reflect that.
