    One Hour a Day

    As Salaam Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu

    Editorial, the Friday Report (Vol V, No.1), al-Jumuah Magazine

    ONE HOUR A DAY - When the Prophet, sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam, received the order to 'Arise and warn', he started calling others to Islam and continued to do so, day and night, until he died. Time was very important for him and he used every minute of it in the best possible way. He would meet regularly with his companions to teach them Qur'an and to warn them from disobeying Allah. He was an example to them in speech and in deeds.

    The result of this education was that the companions' faith became the most important thing for them. And when they had to choose between their home, tribe and good living on the one hand and the companionship of the Prophet, sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam, on the other hand, they chose the latter and emigrated for the sake of Allah and exemplified sacrifice for the sake of one's belief. After thirteen years of hard work and sacrifice in Makkah, the Prophet and his companions were granted victory in Madinah.

    How do our efforts today compare with those of the Prophet and his companions? One year of our life has passed. How many good deeds have we prepared for the day of judgment? What did we, as individuals and communities, do for Islam? Were we distracted by our money and our children from the obedience of Allah and Jihad for His sake? Allah said: "O you who believe! Let not your money or your children divert you from the remembrance of Allah. If any act as such, then surely they are the losers." (Qur'an, 63:9)

    The Prohpet, sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam, said: "No servant will be let go on the day of judgment until he is asked about the four matters: His lifetime: How did he spend it? His knowledge: What did he use it for? His money: Where did he gain it from and what did he spend in it? And his body: In what did he wear it away?" (at-Tirmidhee)

    Have we used our bodies for fasting, praying, enjoining good and forbidding evil or have we used them up by succumbing to our desires?

    Muslims have to realize the importance of time: that it is their capital in this life and that it is to be invested for the maximum possible return. Suppose for a minute that every Muslim dedicates one hour a day to work for the sake of Allah. In financial terms, this would generate a minimum of 1 billion dollars a day, 360 billion dollars a year! If such amount were to be reserved for Islamic work, it would change the face of the earth. Suppose that every Muslim were to spend one hour calling others to the path of Allah: millions would enter Islam!

    Muslims today need to build their Ummah and revive it. And this does not come through futile discussions but rather through work, sincere, continuous, careful and planned. We need to strengthen the body of this Ummah and protect it from the dangers surrounding it. We need to deepen the awareness of the Muslims about their indentity, their history, their wealth and that they are one single nation. And to start with, we need to invest in the Muslim individual because he is the real instrument for change.

    Re: One Hour a Day



    Mash ALLAH...so true

    JazakALLAH Khair

    a lot of us need some major wake up call...we forget why we're here sometimes

    we're here for one reason...To Worship ALLAH (SWA)

    Many Muslims tend to forget,worring about school,marriage,children

    although worshipping doesnt only consist of Praying

    all in all i think the problem starts with knowledge

    ignorance is high among our Ummah,by far the biggest issue...i was just like this a couple months ago...trust me it only takes a couple lectures or imformative passages for someone to get back on track...ofcourse with ALLAH (SWA) will

    give it a try,do little things like correcting a friends or siblings act when they do something wrong (cursing,become normal to us now a days) or tell someone to get up and Pray (in a nice way of course),you cant be aggressive just bring yourself down to their level and talk to them because if you act all high and fancy theyll just think your pressuring them and will ignore you all togeather.and dont be a hypecrate when it comes to this,let them see you doing it not jus preaching it

    be a walking Dawah...easiest way to get it out

    One Hour a Day

    Verily, His Command, when He intends a thing, is only that He says to it, Be! and it is.

    Learn silence as you have learned speech.
    Speech will guide you, and silence will protect you.

    Re: One Hour a Day

    Jazaki allah khair sister for sharing

    I remembered one time I read a story about the good salaf. They were living for a long time much longer than the time we live in this dunia.
    when a man knew that in the last days Our Ummah (which is us) will not live as long as they do (only around 70 years)
    he was amazed and said: what they will do in their very short lifetime, if I will be with them I will spend all my lifetime in Sojod for allah Ta'ala

    Subhan Allah he is afraid of wasting a moment of this whole 70 years, what we are doing here instead
    May Allah guide us to worship him properly
