Salam aleikum, I think you're scrolling a little bit too much. So panela that would be the advice given to those who scroll on their phones or their devices, social media application, such as Tick tock, Instagram, whatever it may be Twitter, you want to see the comments all the time, you want to see what people are saying and doing and you want to actually add or subtract. Now, there needs to be a limit. I'm not presuming that you're looking or browsing, looking at or browsing something harm. But I'm saying even if it was something permissible, you need to set limits, you have rights, your body has a right over you, your eyes have a right over you, your ears have a right over you.
And all your organs have rights over you. Your family members have rights over you. Many times people are browsing on their devices, late hours of the night, so halala right into the early hours of the morning, and they have spouses right next to them. What's the point my brother,
my sister, you can do much better than that.
May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us Do you know, a lot of people are struggling with their eyesight with migraines or migraines as you may pronounce it. Or people are struggling with various health issues with problems with their backs and the way they sit their necks, the bone pain and so on. Sometimes, a lot of the times in fact, it's to do with slouching, too much screentime browsing, you know, not enough sleep, and you're getting unwell. Remember to sleep based on your health and your body, your age, etc. is very, very important to get that sleep at night. And make sure that you have put aside your phones the world can wait. You don't need to know everything that's happening.
You don't need to have read every single comment. You don't need to have responded to everything that happened there. So panela set aside the time to browse and stick to it. Because Where are we heading? How much time have we allotted and allocated to the Koran or to communicating with Allah through prayer. Sometimes we rush our prayer, but then we relax into the bedding or the recliner in order to look at our phones and just browse things that may be halal, maybe haram but when it came to Allah, what did we do? We rushed that is a reality. Salah we want to rush it May Allah forgive me to begin with, and then all of us, we rush the Salah, and then we take our time with social media.
Surely it should be the other way around. You take your time with salah and you rush with social media Subhana Allah, so we need to put an end to time wasting. I'm not saying don't use your devices use them. But be disciplined, be disciplined, doesn't cost you a thing. You just need to be disciplined, be strong set times and Subhan Allah, look at what will happen. Allah will grant you goodness Allah will grant you Baraka like I always say, Allah will open your doors your health will improve your eyes will improve your head will improve the headaches may disappear. So Panama your back and whatever other problems you may be having will improve.
Do you know at times people actually struggle because they forced themselves not to go to the toilet simply because they're on their phones and some would take that phone to the toilet and continue it sit on the pan for as long as it takes. And sometimes for hours on end. People think you have a stomach problem. You have a phone problem. So Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us with discipline, Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to strike the balance when it comes to our devices and social media. Stop scrolling, put your phone away, go to bed subpanel I've said this before, I'm saying it again because it really is something we need a reminder about my beloved
younger generation who may be listening to me, the children the youth. Let's learn to be disciplined. Let's learn to set times when I was young we didn't have mobile phones but we had times we even had timetables get up at this time and do this step two at that time with minutes written on day and we tried to stick to these times we failed but many times we didn't we actually stuck to it. So let's try to do something good inshallah, we will definitely improve ourselves and contribute towards the most beautiful community society family and the global large May Allah bless you all as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah blackcat
