How Serious Are We?

How serious are we about our time? If someone wants to just chat and gossip does that bother us? If yes then it is time for change. If no, then it’s time for a major change.
Our life cannot become meaningful by chance; there has to be intelligence, hard work and perseverance accompanied by a sincere intention of pleasing and obeying our Rabb. People don’t just stumble upon a blessed life.
Undoubtedly, time is very important for our success in both this temporary world and the eternal world to come. If we waste time, we abuse it, which implies wasting and abusing our lives. Therefore, if we really give value to our lives then we must give due value to time.
The Prophet (salalahu alaihi wasallam) said, “Lose no time to do good deeds before you are caught up by one of seven calamities awaiting you: starvation which may impair your wisdom, prosperity which may mislead you, an ailment which may damage your health, old age which may harm your senses, sudden death, the Dajjal (Antichrist) or Doomsday, which is indeed the hardest and most bitter.” [Tirmidhi, Baihaqi]
