Make Better Use of Life

Guidance - II

The Apostle of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be to him), while admonishing a person, said, “You should take advantage of five things before the other five; of your young age before your old age, your health before your illness, your prosperity before your poverty, your leisure before your engagement and your life before your death.”

(Mishkat)

The Blessed Messenger has taught the humanity about the value of human life and about how best it can be availed of. He enjoins the believers to take care and make better use of Allah’s blessings. While young, man should work harder and harder, for in the old age he may not be able to do anything. Health is another blessing of Allah. So while he enjoys health, man should devote himself fully to the preparation of the next world lest he should fall ill and be deprived of doing anything good and great.

When man spends his life in prosperity, he should spend his wealth in the Way of Allah – on feeding and clothing his wife and children and other dependants beside himself, on fulfilling the rights of his relations, neighbours, passers-by and the needy, and also on implementing the commandments of Allah.

Similarly, when man gets leisure, he should take up some good work. Thus he should spend all his life in active implementation of Allah’s Will. Man’s entire life on earth is a blessing; for it is during this life on earth that man is able to work in complete fulfilment of the commands of Allah.
