Tick..tock.. tick..tock.. tick..tock..[emoji355]️[emoji352][emoji354]

Ever sat in front of a clock and watched the seconds go by?..

It's never ending.. it's persistent..it never stops..

It might seem like a mundane activity.. yet in those ticks, your life is being spent..and you're losing time!

I read the following somewhere on the internet and I wanted to share it with you..

[emoji815]️To realize the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who failed a grade..
[emoji815]️To realize the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who gave birth to a pre-mature baby..
[emoji815]️To realize the value of ONE WEEK, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper..
[emoji815]️To realize the value of ONE MINUTE, ask a person who missed the train..
[emoji815]️To realize the value of ONE SECOND, ask a person who just avoided an accident..
[emoji815]️To realize the value of ONE MILLISECOND, ask the person who won a silver medal in the Olympics..

It's very true..time is valued differently by different people..

and it's a true blessing for someone to understand and internalize that time is the substance of life in which man exists and does either good or bad..

Imam Ibn Al-Qayyim has a beautiful saying that says "..For the intelligent one is the one who is conscious of his time , and if he loses it then he would lost all his interests, for all interests derive from time, and whenever time is lost it can never be regained!" [Al Jawab Al Kafi]..
