Take advantage of 5 before 5

Posted: November 10, 2009 in Ahh moments, Duas


Alhamdulilah, my Lord is the greatest. As I walked out of halaqah a bit ago, i thought subhana’Allah how great is my Lord, and just pondering and reflecting on how He answers the dua of His slaves…subhana’Allah, may Allah bless the halaqah and continue to bless it this year and for all time.

I thought of trails and youth today, and it made me think of this hadeeth! subhana’Allah. Truly, reminders benefit the believer.

The hadith of ibn Abbas radi Allahu anhu reported in the mustadrak of Al-Haakim, musnad Imam Ahmad, and others, with an authentic chain of narration. In this hadith the Prophet sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam said to a man while he was advising him:

“Take advantage of five matters before five other matters: your youth, before you become old; and your health, before you fall sick; and your richness, before you become poor; and your free time before you become busy; and your life, before your death.”

Oh how important are these things when we lose them, sometimes we have so much free time, that we kill it! At time of ease, we begin to reflect at time of trail..subhana’Allah, and of youth…ya Allah, make me and all of us who strive in your way whether were young or old. Allahuma Ameen.

Till next time, may Allah grant me to be joined with my father in the best of abodes, Al firdous along with all of you.
