No Time to Waste in Islam

An Arabic proverb says: Time is a sword. If you do not cut with it, it will cut you down.

The minute a human is born, the clock of their life starts ticking down, and it does not stop. “O son of Adam!” Muslim Scholar Hasan Al-Basri explained. “You are but days. Every day that goes by, a part of you goes with it.”

Time is life’s capital, which both the Qur’an and the Sunnah urge humans to purposefully spend and wisely invest in this world — for they will be asked about it tomorrow.

In a hadith narrated by Al-Darimi, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon said) said:

“The two feet of the human will not move on the Day of Resurrection until he is asked about four things: about his life and how he spent it; about his body and how he used it; about his wealth, from where he acquired it and on what he spent it; and about his knowledge and what he did with it.”

(Sunan Al-Darimi)
