We always think we're too busy. We've got no time. Everyone's always complaining. No time. No time. No time. Allahu Akbar. There's no Baraka in time. This is one of the signs of the hour.
Imam Bukhari and others all relate to Hadith in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions a few signs of Yom Yom of the final hour. The first one in all of these ahaadeeth Is that the audibles? Time will shrink.
Time will shrink, and Imam Ahmed mumble in his Messiah than Imam didn't mean to Lahiri in his son both relates that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam said, time will shrink, so much so
that a year will become like a month a month will become like a Jamara meaning a week, and the gym or as meaning a week will become like a day,
or will be like a day. So a year will be like a month a month will be like a gym or meaning a week a gym or art meaning a week will be like a day, a day will be like an hour and an hour will be like and the words of the Hadith are
the Arabs they would
they used to have these torches
wicks large wicks or torches made with the dry leaves of palm trees. So they would wrap them and burn them. So a single leaf, a single dry leaf of a palm tree would burn very quickly.
So the wording of the hadith is and an hour will be like the burning of a leaf.
So how long it takes for crackling dry leaf to burn out. Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam says an hour of the day will be live.
And that will be towards your monthly AMA and Subhan Allah. We can see you today there's there's hardly any Baraka in time. We have all the facilities and amenities. We have cars, we have modern transport in our homes, we have all the appliances, all the facilities, and yet we complain of no time.
And we have physical proof of this.
But there is there was Baraka in the time of those who came before.
I've mentioned this on a number of occasions. Less someone says that how is that possible? Time is relative Afghans time.
Time is relative. And Allah subhanho wa Taala puts Baraka in the time of those whom he wishes.
Imam McGeady the poverty Rahmatullah he lay a scholar who died in 1011, sorry, in 310 Hijiri.
His students, they calculated the number of pages that he had written in his life
and it was a stupendous number.
Imam Gilardino so youth Hiroshima hula scholar who died in 911, he, he wrote at the feet of the Quran
gelang Well, the sea which is half of July learning students and the orlimar will know this.
His teacher had written at the feet of the Quran.
Imam Gela Dean and
his name was also July. So he'd written at the feet of the Quran. But counter intuitively, he had started his seed from pseudo calf till the end of the Quran. So he did the second half first. And his idea was to do that the seed in as concise a manner as possible, no detail, using as few words as possible, explain the verses of the Quran in order to provide a summary of the tafseer that will amount of before and that's a very difficult task, extremely difficult. What is someone's free? Here's a verse of the Quran elaborates on it, relying on earlier sources, and the other is write a commentary of the Quran be as concise and as brief as possible for each
verse in as few words as possible that is a difficult task. So when he completed the half of the Quran stuff see it the second half, Unfortunately, he passed away his students Imam Gela Dina. So ut Rahimullah his name was also July, he made an undertaking that I will write the remaining half of the Quran but he still have to start from the beginning till Surah through gov. I will do the first half of the Quran in order to complete my teachers have seen and I will do it again.
exactly as he did it. Now that's a double undertaking, not only will I do it,
but I will follow his pattern in his footsteps and try to make it as close to his seat as possible.
Now that's, that's extremely difficult living in Egypt in the 10th. History century a few centuries ago. Writing with pen and ink on parchments on rough paper.
He completed he this is just one of his books. He completed that the seed
of half of the Quran in 40 days

Allah places Baraka in the time of those whom he wishes,
Imam will hardywood Complete 40 forearms in the Ramadan.
Imam Shafi and Imam Abu Hanifa Rahim Allah would complete 60 Gorons and
some people say how is that possible again Baraka truly Baraka today we have all the facilities and yet people complain no time. no time whatsoever. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam says the opposite. So we think that we will have free time later. No, the truth is, nobody has time we have limited time. We have to prioritize. We have to prioritize.
And what the prophets Allah Allah Almighty who send them says, is that give priority to your deen to your to your Lord, to your Africa, so capitalize on your free time now before your preoccupation
