There is saying “Time and tide, wait for none“. And it is true that time waits for now. Death is the reality which no one can deny, and the life given to us is the test to qualify with only two options i.e either heaven or hell. There is no other option except these two. So life is very precious to prepare ourself for the life after death. And time plays a vital role in the same. One day we have to leave this planet and move to never ending life after death, so this is the time when we can concentrate and utilize our time so that we can enter jannah.
We always desire of best things in this life, like if we have one house, we desire for other. If we have one car, we desire for other and the list goes on and on. But do we ever realize that this life has to come to an end and we have to move to the never ending life and nothing from this world will be taken by us over there. So if we desire for best things in life which in temporary, then why not for the best in the comming never ending life.
Have we ever desired about Jannat-ul-Firdous, which once achieved will remain with us for ever. So we shall start thinking on the same and utilize our time in the best possible way. So that each activity of our in each time should please our almighty ALLAH.
Some of the tips for utilizing the precious time:
1. Make a routine: We should always do thing in an planned manner i.e if after fajar salah I read quran, so reading this quran should be with consistancy and always on the same time. So we should follow a routine in doing our activities.
2. Should not waste time in useless talks and activities: We should always try to utilize out time in the Dhikr of ALLAH. And should avoid useless gossips which lead to nowhere. We should try to minimize the usage of social networking sites etc, however should try to use our majority of our time in the worship of ALLAH.
3. ALLAH IN OUR MIND AND HEART: We should try to do Dhikr every time (sitting, standing etc). We should try to focus our heart and mind towards ALLAH. We should always remember that ALLAH IS ALWAYS WATCHING with every activity we do.
