Good Deed: #160 Manage your time


103:1-3 (Y. Ali) By (the Token of) Time (through the ages). Verily Man is in loss, Except such as have Faith, and do righteous deeds, and (join together) in the mutual teaching of Truth, and of Patience and Constancy.

As reported by Ibn Abbas, the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) ordered: “Good health and spare time are two of the blessings of Allah about which many people are deceived.” (Bukhari)

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said “Take benefit of five before five: your youth before your old age, your health before your sickness, your wealth before your poverty, your free-time before your preoccupation, and your life before your death.” (Hakim)
