“When it comes to our time in this earth, it is limited and we don’t know when it will end. Compare this to the vast eternity of the Hereafter and you start to realise that the 60, 70, 80 or 90 years of life you’ll live in this world is nothing but a drop in an ocean.
When this realization hits you, it will force you to establish priorities that are aligned with the ultimate goal of pleasing Allah. It’s a blessing that, as Muslims, we believe that there is life after death. This makes out time on earth more meaningful. However, sometimes we forget. We forget that we’re here for a short time and plan as if we’ll live here forever.
People might argue that if we’re too consumed with this thought, we’ll give up trying to achieve anything in life. This doesn’t have to be the case. The example we have in our Prophet SAW and his companions, who achieved great things during their lifetime, show that there is a balance. They did not simply seclude themselves in a quiet place of worship awaiting death to come to them; they were active and productive citizens of the world. Being conscious of the fleeting nature of dunya time and the eternal akhira time, is a key concept to boost your spiritual time.”
– Mohammed Faris
