The value of Time in the Muslim´s Life
A small excerpt from the book:
Allah the Almighty subjected to you day and night and subjected to you all times. He created you when you were not worth mentioning, and He created you at theses times and gave you a particular period because earlier people and nations before us took their share of days and nights. He subjected day and night to them, one of them spent this time worshiping Allah and obeying his orders till his time passed and died, while the others spent their days and nights in performing evil deeds against Allah the Almighty when he comes to his Lord with his days and nights' deeds. Allah the Almighty confers upon his worshipers that he subjected days and nights to them, subjected to you days and nights in life that is your fate in this life and will come to an end.
"For every matter there is a Decree of Allah." [Soorah ar-Ra’d 13:38]
If the man's life ended, his days and nights would finish. And if his life ended, as I said, with a day does not outstrip the night. And his life ended with a night does not exceed the day. This is a great blessing subjected by Allah the Almighty; day, night, the forenoon, Al-Fajr, Al-Asr; these are blessings given by Allah the Almighty. And He created you among these blessings and ordered you to use it in coming closer to Allah the Almighty, So, Allah concluded this verse with saying:
"Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who understand."
Whoever use his mind and exploit his thinking and reflect on day and night, sun and moon and the sequence of these times, he will be given a concrete example and a moral lesson, and he will be warned of continuing in mistakes “Verily, in that are indeed signs. ”
Allah the Almighty said:
“Verily in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, there are indeed signs for men of understanding. Those who remember Allah (always and in prayers) standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides, and think deeply about the creation of the heavens and the earth, (saying): Our Lord! You have not created (all) this without purpose, glory to You! (Exalted are You, above all, that they associate with You as partners). Give us salvation from the torment of the Fire﴿. ” [Soorah Ali Imran 3: 190-191]
