As Time passes

Abdullah bin Mas'ud radiyalaahu anhu said: "Indeed I hate to see a man idle, neither working for this world nor the hereafter."

Hassan Basri rahiimahulaah said: "O son of Adam, indeed you are only but a number of days. Whenever a day passes a part of you leaves with it."

Hassan said: "I met pious people who are more misely with there time than they are with their wealth."

Hassan also said in a sermon. "Do not let the temporary and little charms of this world distract you and entice you... and do not say tomorrow and tomorrow, for indeed you do not know when you will be heading to Allah."

Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatu Allah. Jazaki Allahu khair. SubhanAllah these quotes are great reminders. I especially thought the second is so deep. My first time ever coming across it.

Thanks a bunch for your post.

May Allah Reward you and all those you love, in both this Dunya and most especially Al Akhira, Ameen.

Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatu Allah.

Your sister in Al Islam,
Alaa Mohamad

Asalaamu alikum wa rahamtullah,

Subhan'allah..indeed by time man is in loss. Such a pertinent post.

Hassan al-Basri also said:

The World is three 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.
(Hassan al-Basri)

Jazak'allah for sharing, wa salaamu alikum

Dont be sad
