Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah. So today I want to discuss some time management tips from my book getting the Baraka and Islamic identity management. This book has been published in various versions across the globe. on Amazon, you can get hold of it under the name time management and Baraka in Islam. It's available as getting the Baraka on 90 p in PDF format, as well as in South Africa as well with a different cover in Bangladesh has been published under the name time management, various versions, it's all the same book, right that people have been asking me Are these three different books and time management? No,

00:00:42--> 00:00:52

it's the same book just different Additions for different parts of the world. So today I want to discuss one of the thesis which I have mentioned in the book, right the Hades in which on the

00:00:54--> 00:01:12

I mean, the avasarala call cola Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam Neeraj linha, who is who in turn in Homs, kubla, Homs, Shabaab Chaka Khan, the harmonica per se hajikko kubla takamaka of in Africa, Africa, of a raga cobbler shakalaka hyah Takata multicam.

00:01:13--> 00:01:34

Abdullah Ibn Abbas rajala, on who narrates the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, take benefit of five things before five, your youth before old age, your health before sickness, your wealth before poverty, your free time before you are busy, and your life before get

00:01:35--> 00:01:36

in this Hades.

00:01:38--> 00:02:26

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is explaining to us five types of risk of sustenance, which Allah Subhana Allah has blessed us with, that many of us take for granted. Right many people think of risk to be just food and money. But really risk of sustenance is everything that Allah has blessed us with, from our capabilities, to our health, to our time to our youth. All of these are blessings from Allah subhanho wa Taala. All of this is part of our risk. And so in this Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is giving us a reminder that there are five types of risk that many people take for granted five types of risk that many people don't appreciate until it's taken

00:02:26--> 00:03:03

away from them. What are these five things that people don't appreciate? Number one is our youth. So everybody gets older. And when you're young, you don't understand why people say appreciate your youth. You know, when you're older, you're gonna wish you did more things. Because what we don't realize when we are young is as you get older, we have less energy, we have more health problems, we have more work, we have more responsibilities, we have so many things going on in our lives, that did not happen when you were younger. And so if we take advantage of our youth, we are able to get more done. But when we spend our youth in sin, when we waste are you doing things that are not

00:03:03--> 00:03:44

pleasing to Allah Subhana, Allah, Allah, then the end result of that is that we end up wasting our youth and regretting it later. The second thing mentioned is our health before sickness. So everybody gets sick at different points in our life. And getting sick, isn't nice. It doesn't feel nice. But it is a test from Allah subhanho wa Taala. It is a reminder of the blessing of good health, we will not be able to understand and appreciate the blessing of good health if we never got sick. So sickness allows us to understand and appreciate this blessing of having good health. When you have good health, you can do more good deeds, you can get more done, you can accomplish more,

00:03:44--> 00:04:23

but many of us are not appreciative about this blessing. The third thing is our money, right before poverty. So people go through different stages in their lives. And many people experience parts of their lives where they are wealthy and part of their lives where they don't have any money. And so Allah does is when you have money Rasulullah saw some reminders in his Hadees that it is our duty to spend it in a way that is pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala because it can be taken away from us. Number four, which is related to the topic of the book is our free time before we become busy. So there are points in our life where we have a lot of free time. And what happens to many of us is in

00:04:23--> 00:04:59

that point in our life, we end up watching a lot of Netflix series, we end up playing a lot of video games, over sleeping over eating, just wasting it. And then later in life. We are busy with work with family with obligations with all kinds of things. And we don't have time to do extra good deeds to work on projects that benefit the oma. Why? Because we wasted the time and Allah gave it to us. And so it is from our responsibility as Muslims that we manage our time well, that when we have free time, we include in that free time, time that we spend that in a way that is beneficial to society.

00:05:00--> 00:05:33

With a pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala in a way that is productive. This doesn't mean you have to spend all your free time doing these things. But there should be a portion of our day that is allocated to these kinds of things. And the final thing mentioned in the Hadith is our life before get many people waste their entire lives. They don't do anything with their lives, they literally waste their entire existence on earth until it's too late. And once you die, it really is too late to do anything about it. So let us not be from those people who waste their life. Let us not be from those people who waste their time. They must not be from those people who waste a huge or the wealth

00:05:34--> 00:05:49

or they helped me a lot of a handful of places to be amongst those who use all of these things in a way that is pleasing to Him.
